I’ve wanted to be a mom my whole life. And I love being a mom to my now 16-year-old daughter, Sadie Mae.
Sadie and I have always been close, and I am so grateful for that. We have a lot in common, including our love of fashion, art, music, cute animals, and beauty products. Because I am a lifestyle writer, our house is always stocked with a bounty of fabulous products for our skin, nails, and hair. Sadie has always been a willing guinea pig and has, over the years, become a product connoisseur as well as a skilled makeup artist, manicurist, and hair color expert.
Mother/daughter relationships can be tricky in the teen years when moms face a daily barrage of eye rolls and one-word answers. Sadie spares me both (or at least keeps them close to the vest), and instead, accepts and encourages me, cheers me on, and shares plentiful compliments about my outfits, my accomplishments, and my big, curly, silver hair.
Having silver hair is a serious choice. It can be tough to maintain, and it can make you look older if you’re not careful. I’ll be turning 55 this year, but I started going grey in my 20’s. I thought those subtle Bride of Frankenstein-esque streaks were cool at first, so I allowed them to grow in. And the silver strands kept on coming. I’ve found that what makes going grey a pleasant experience is finding products that help it glow and shine.
The Hair Biology Silver & Glowing Shampoo and Conditioner are my go-to’s because they contain Biotin to help strengthen my hair and remove dulling residue for the shiniest silver hair. I also appreciate that the products are budget-friendly – typically around $10 per bottle at retailers like Amazon and Walmart – and are perfect for women with greying, thinning, or menopausal hair.

I wish everyone who celebrates a Happy Mother’s Day and send extra love to those for whom Mother’s Day is hard. This day is not a celebratory one for everyone, and I feel that it’s important to acknowledge that.
