When Sara Eisenman was 21 years old, she was terrified when she looked in the mirror and saw her hair turned partly white overnight. She couldn’t explain how this could have happened to her and at an age when she is supposed to be shining with youth and health.
“My hair turned almost entirely silver, literally overnight, at the age of 21. I went to the mirror one day to find that silver hair was emerging from the roots all over my head. It was seen by me as a startling marker of aging at a time when I was supposed to be in the height of youth.”
She started dying her hair completely black to hide the white hair and she did it aggressively every 2 weeks. She stopped when she was 37 after giving birth to her daughter. She then started embracing her white-silver hair and she feels sexier and more beautiful because of it!
“My silver hair is not aging, and never was. It was all along merely a symbol of my rebirth. Imagine that I spent 15 years dutifully pouring expensive poisons on my head – terrified of who I really was – all to disguise something that was truly a gift not only to myself but many others.”
