There is a distinct moment in each woman’s life when gray hair and the associated reality of aging make its first unwelcome appearance.
I found my first gray hair when I was 12 years old. Twelve. I had gray hair before I had a period.
There’s nothing wrong with moms who decide to go for a stereotypical “mom cut.” If they like it, or if it makes their lives easier, that’s fantastic. Personally, my hair after I had children remained just as important to me as it was before I had them. My hair has always been a huge part of my identity — candy-colored, funky, and so totally me.
