You guys, getting older is great. Really. If you're a twentysomething reading this, I’m not blowing smoke up your young, firm ass. I mean, I'm a few months away from my 41st birthday and I feel like a clueless fraud only, like, maybe 40 percent of the time. This is about a 56 percent improvement over me at 25. It's great. Really.
But there is just one little problem with being not-young: It comes with gray hair. At least for most of us, including me. And while I'm all about the respect and security and self-assurance of being a grown-ass woman, I'm not about the gray hair just yet. It's coming in fast and furious and it needs to back off. But since it's not, I keep Color Wow Root Cover Up on my bathroom counter, and desk, and in the bottom of my bag. Because you never know when you'll look up while washing your hands in a fluorescent-lit public bathroom and see an inch of regrowth that was not there an hour ago. (Like I said: Fast. And furious.)
