Letting go is the way forward

Letting go is the way forward

The best piece of advice I received at the beginning of my dye-ditching journey over 10 years ago was to ‘change what’s in your head, before you change what’s on your head’.

What does that really mean?

Well, particularly as women, we are swamped with opinions on ageing, changing, what ‘beauty’ means as you get older and what you ‘should’ be doing (or not doing). This seeps into how we feel about ourselves when we look in the mirror. How we feel about our ageing bodies and faces. It can feel hugely overwhelming.

So overwhelming, that it is hard to sift through all of the noise to work out how you feel about how you want to age and live and change. It’s easy to soak up the negative connotations surrounding ageing and hair colour. I

f you have any hope of loving your natural hair, happiness, acceptance and even celebration begins with shifting that thought in your head. Learning how to reframe ‘letting yourself go’. Letting yourself go, letting yourself loose, letting yourself free is one of the most wonderful things you can do for yourself.

Leaning into the camp of ‘it’s really not a big deal, it’s just a hair colour’, perhaps jumping straight into the ‘I am actively celebrating my natural hair and self, as it is’ tribe or flowing somewhere between the two.

Ultimately, beauty is whatever you want it to be.

Whatever makes you shine and feel most you. Whether that’s dyeing or not. Happiness is true beauty. Age doesn’t have to come into it. At White Hot, we believe that letting go of the noise, the pressures, the opinions and the self judgement is the way forward.
