Chrissy Teigen Is Encouraging Women to Celebrate Their Gray Hair
"My Cruella dreams are coming true!"
You can always count on Chrissy Teigen for some Twitter real talk. The mom-to-be is the ultimate truth-teller when it comes to body-positivity, and she's opened up about how much plastic surgery she's had and how she wore waist-trainers, latex, and Spanx after giving birth to baby Luna.
Now, the candid mama is getting real about something else: gray hair. In a recent tweet, Teigen shared how she's discovered a "skunk-like" streak of gray hair on her head, and how she's kind of digging it. "My Cruella dreams are coming true," she wrote.
Her confession resonated with hundreds of women who've also experienced this natural part of aging. Nearly a thousand women commented on Teigen's tweet with pictures of their own gray hair and how they've learned to embrace it.
"I've had a natural white streak in my hair since I was 19. 13 years later I still love it, " one user wrote. "I find new gray hairs on my head every day and I LOVE THEM. I'm only 24, so I'm not sure why they're already here but I call them my unicorn hairs," said another. (Related: Here's Why Your Hair Might Be Going Gray in Your 20s)
The truth is, gray hair is completely normal and natural for women of all ages, so it's about time we embrace it.
