To Grey or not to Grey

I’m conflicted about this.  Why does grey hair get such a bad rap, especially for women?  Half of me wants to let the natural grey shine through and the other half of me wants to keep it hidden.  My natural color isn’t even grey, it’s white.  I have white hair, like half my head is white, why do I keep trying to deny it’s shimmery splendor?
