Sharon Mirador was 17 when she found her first silver hair, which she immediately plucked out. After she had her first child, the incoming grays had far outpaced what she could pluck, and she started dying her hair. “Eventually, it became obvious to me that, at some point, I would have to stop doing this to my hair,” she says.
And so, at the end of 2020, Mirador decided to ditch the dye for good and document the process for her now thousands of Instagram followers. “I realized that for years, I had spent so much time trying to look the way society expects women to look, rather than just accepting myself for who I am,” she tells us. “This journey has turned into so much more than hair color. It’s become a journey of rediscovering me.”
She takes us through a part of that journey ahead.
