"WE ARE OUR OWN HOLLYWOOD!"
DONNA CERISE, Creator/Founder
"TheGreyNation.com was birthed out of frustration. As an actress/model, I got tired of being told, "No," because I had grey hair. I got tired of carrying wigs and covering up what is a huge part of me, my grey hair."
"I decided to not wait for "Hollywood" to see that grey hair is a natural part of life and that an actress with grey hair could work. Nevertheless, after much rejection, I set out to make my own "Hollywood," the GreyNation.com! A place where anyone rocking grey hair is a STAR!"
"Grey hair is more than hair losing its color, it is ART. It is the next level of sexy. It is a state of mind and being. It should be appreciated and celebrated. Grey hair is an unique accessory. It's your, "bling bling." Grey hair is wisdom, let it tell your story unapologetically! Rock it!"
"Long story short, I became very allergic to dye. As a teen I began to see a few grey hairs. It was at that moment I started to color on a regular basis. I was hooked on the color, jet black. I found myself looking for products that would last longer and not wash out after a few washes. I was fortunate to have a grandmother who knew a great deal about coloring hair, so I gave her a go at it! She hooked me up! But...it did not last long.
About a few weeks later a new product came out made from Hemp. I heard about it through a friend who was a barber, so I trusted him. Unfortunately, the moment I put it in my hair, my eyes instantly puffed up and swelling in my face. Needless to say, The night ended with me in the emergency room!
That was the "wake-up" call for me! It was then I said, "No more!"

"I started my gray hair journey at the onset of Covid just before my 63rd birthday. I’ve been gray for years but always covered it with black weaves. Once I took that leap and had my stylist cut off about eight inches of black, the compliments have been non-stop." - Darlene
" I decided not to go grey, but to just stay grey."
"I had no choice but to let my natural hair color show through because no dye could keep it covered so it is a good thing and I really appreciate it. It is what makes me unique and now its time to share with others. God always told me my time was not to be early in life, however, now is my time to shine." - Dr. Marilyn Johonson
"Grey is hereditary, first spotted it at the age of 13." - Jamel Moore
"I'm 50 and I have been grey since the age of 28. It's a family trait to grey young."
Choose a shampoo that is mild. Try not to use shampoos that will dry the hair. A shampoo that has conditioner in it works well on normal to dry hair.
When blow drying, use a diffuser and not directly on the hair as you are drying it. If you flat iron afterwards, be sure to not overheat. Keep the iron setting on 365 degrees or less to prevent burning, causing the grey to be dull or yellow.
Go for organic treatments like olive oil, vitamin E and coconut oil.
