There's a good reason for it.

Some women have even found that going gray is magical.

And, who knows? You may actually inspire others to take the plunge and ditch the hair dye for good.

For many women, deciding to go gray has been freeing.

Women want others to know that there's no shame in going gray.

"It’s not easy to embrace gray hair at the age of 32, but I’m so grateful that I have. Two people close to me have died this year, including my dad, and it just reinforces that aging is a privilege to be cherished," said Instagram user @katiefuria.

Many want to lead by example.

Boldly embracing your grays sets a good example for young women and challenges unrealistic beauty standards.

But to be honest, it doesn't matter what the color of your natural hair is because what counts is how you feel about it inside.

You're beautiful either way.

As someone who's already got a fair bit of gray hair, I'm so impressed by these ladies.
