Another thing that's changed from when your mom used to color her grays away under the cover of darkness is the quality of the products available. It's been a long time since anyone has gotten even a whiff of any strong, offensive smelling products in salons. Those have long since disappeared or been replaced by gentler formulations that are free, or mostly free from ammonia, peroxide or other harsher chemicals.
But any such stigma associated with coloring our mane is long gone. Anymore it's so common no one gives it a second thought. In fact some of us would be hard pressed to recognize our own natural hair color it's been so long since we have seen it. Because as they say color is a girl's best friend.
