Gray hair is an inevitable part of aging and it’s a milestone that many people don’t easily forget. For some women, hair is a form of self-expression. When it begins to turn gray, some may feel frustrating or unfair, especially if it happens earlier than expected. However, others think nothing of it or even realize that it is a crown of glory. Many celebs also have opened up about having gray hair.
Jenkins was a case in point. Several years ago, she felt shy when her hair first began going white but now she thinks having premature hair is rather beautiful and unique. Kyle Richards, Kelly Ripa, and Kevin Hart all think the same. They discussed going gray, their roots, and their color-maintenance routines via Instagram.
