I applaud you for writing this. I saw my first gray hair at 16. I'm now 39 and all my grays are in the front. At the beginning of the pandemic, I went the longest without dying my hair - 8 weeks. I used a cover up and told myself I was okay with it. Then I started dying it again. I hate the maintenance but don't want to look old either. It's a battle that I'm losing. I've now gone blonde to extend time between dyes. Thank you for sharing the struggle. I'm glad I am not the only one who's spent unnecessary time following grombe. Gray is beautiful, I wish I could embrace it.
