Martha Truslow Smith, a graphic designer from North Carolina, knew she would start to get gray early long before the process actually began. The weird “young aging” is hereditary in her family. However, when the first silver hair appeared at the age of 14, it was difficult to reconcile with this. The girl started the everlasting battle for her beauty.

Martha has been pulling out the gray locks and dying them for the long ten years. However, by the age of 24, she decided not to torture herself and remain with the natural color of her hair. This was a serious step for a young girl, as a stereotype developed in the society that most people began to get “silver” after 30 years. Luckily, she was ready for the surprised looks and confusing questions.

In order to gain even more confidence, Martha decided to create a blog Grombre on Instagram in August 2016 to describe her feelings, experienced in a state of “being gray.” She didn’t expect so many women had a similar problem.

Her subscribers give a positive attitude to those who are shy of their gray hair and cannot overcome moral barriers, thus buying hair-dye and hiding their natural beauty.

At the same time, the gray-haired Marta is convinced there is another option:

Of course, everyone makes a choice by themselves. After all, everyone wants to be beautiful, happy and loved. If you consider the possibility of staying with natural beauty, then in this world there is space for your irresistible essence, your individuality. We just have to decide to take the first step.
