Did you start going gray in 2020?


Seems for many women, the color of 2020 was gray.

A new OnePoll survey found that the average American woman says she feels four years older after the stress of last year. 65% of the women surveyed said they believe 2020 aged them more than ever – and that includes going gray.

52% said they’ve gone gray faster in the last year than they would have, and 42% said they discovered news strands of gray in their hair in the last year. 46% of those said it was the first gray hairs they’d ever had.

The survey, which was commissioned by Garnier, found that 33% of respondents said they dyed their hair at home during the pandemic – with 88% saying they did it to cover up their grays. 44% said they colored their hair just to make a change and another 32% said they tried a new color because they were bored.
