Sharing a study that found that using permanent hair dyes and chemical hair straighteners can result in a higher risk of developing breast cancer to Instagram, Grant revealed why she doesn't choose to colour her hair. “Wow. Today’s news… The numbers are staggering, especially for womxn of colour,” she wrote.
Grant went on to explain that she went grey prematurely in her early 20’s "and dyed my hair every colour along the way until I couldn’t tolerate the toxicity of the dyes any more."
“In my 30’s I let my hair turn ‘blonde,’” she continued.
“I love and support that every womxn can choose how she wants to look at every age. But/and, if womxn are perishing from beauty standards… then let’s talk about those beauty standards. Love to all womxn!”
'Womxn' is an intersectional term that is meant to be more inclusive of transgender women, non-binary individuals and women of colour.
One more time for the people in the back, Alexandra!
