A Danish author has revealed that men have been going crazy for her ever since she embraced her gray hair. Annika von Holdt, from Copenhagen, revealed that ever since she decided to go fully gray instead of trying to cover it up, men have been bombarding her with inappropriate images of their privates. Just what every woman wants, I’m sure!
- Annika, 53, started noticing grays in her early 20s. At one point, she was dyeing her hair every two weeks to try to cover them up — a practice she continued for more than 20 years. “I was horrified. I plucked the greys to the point where I realized that plucking them was only going to get me bald,” she recalled, as per the Daily Star. “I dyed my hair for decades. After every vacation without access to dye, I looked like someone had dropped a bucket of acid on top of my head, so I had to dye at least every two weeks.”
- Eventually, she got sick of trying to keep up with it. She stopped dyeing her hair six years ago and it’s had an amazing effect. “The upkeep got exhausting. I am glad I smartened up and got out. My hair has never been prettier or more healthy than now,” Annika said.
- People admire her hair so much, they even stop her on the street. “It’s rather shockingly silver and down to my waist, so people certainly notice. I get a lot of compliments for it,” Annika revealed. “My hair is always a topic, no matter the event. Strangers stop me on the street, even grumpy airport security people stop to compliment my hair when I pass through airports. Many ask me how I got the color because they want it too.”
- Straight men seem to be the biggest fans of her new look. Annika admitted that one of the side effects of embracing her natural gray is that men are constantly hitting on her, and not always in welcome ways. “I get a lot of sexual interest,” she said, adding that she’s often sent explicit images of men’s junk and “lurid suggestions” of things they’d like to do to her. “They are just perverts hiding behind a keyboard with too much time on their hands,” she said. Thankfully, it doesn’t seem to bother her too much!
