Reader comments from the week:


Hi Lisa,
I’ve found your blog and emails to be useful and upbeat sources for clean beauty/living, but I found [this post] tone-deaf at best. I get the point being made but feel there must be a better way to say something along the lines of “work smarter not harder.” Lots of people (particularly women, particularly women of color) do essential, difficult work for minimum wage. It’s a privilege to be able to outsource that work, whether it’s childcare, cleaning, or office work. With your platform, I’d love to see advocacy for a living wage or reflection about how you/we/your readers compensate the people to whom we outsource work, rather than acting like minimum wage work will disappear with a few key tips at a seminar. I think I’m probably not telling you anything new, maybe just a facet that got lost in excitement for this upcoming event, and I appreciate your reading my email!


I just wanted to reach out and say how much I appreciate everything that you have posted/shared about going gray. I am 23 years old and am going gray, due to genetics. Looking at others in my family, I will probably be entirely gray by my mid 30s. This used to cause me a lot of anxiety, especially when I was in high school. For years I died my hair but made the decision about a year ago to stop dying my hair. 
It has been hard because I don’t really know anyone like me. I’ve started to be more concerned about taking care of my hair, because wow the fly-always are real!! I was having a really hard time finding any good advice or other women that are letting their hair go gray. When I stumbled across your blog, I got SO EXCITED to read about your transition to natural hair and the products you suggest to keep your hair looking healthy.  
This was much longer of an email than I expected, but I essentially just want to thank you for being such a pivotal part of my journey to normalize my gray hair at such a young age. You’ve helped me to be excited about my hair again! 
Sincerely, This Gray Girl

    OMG, that tshirt dress looks amazing and not too form fitting. How does the sizing run?

      Yes! I runs true to size. I normally take a medium and a medium fit great, (a little sung in the waist) but the fit is great!
