3. What are the pros of this trend?

• The gray hair movement is kind of liberating for those who have naturally grayed hair.
• It will instantly make you stand out in a crowd.
• This trend can make you look attractive if done the right way.
• Gives you a bold new look.

4. What are the cons of this trend?

• Requires immense use of bleaches and chemicals.
• You get far away from the natural shade of your hair. Bleaches penetrate the outer cuticle of hair shaft and de-pigment it. This can be quite damaging for your hair.
• Because of the centuries old social stigma attached to gray hair, many people will criticize and de-motivate you.
