When artist Alexandra Grant dated Keanu Reeves for the LACMA Art + Film event in Los Angeles last month, they made the media and fans talk because Reeves has never walked the red carpet with another important person during his 35-year career . Everyone had many questions about Grant, and one issue that often came up was the fact that the 46-year-old woman shook her gray hair instead of dyeing it.
Grant went to Instagram this week to explain why he stopped using hair color when he posted a Newsweek Article about a new study that had some shocking results. The research found that women who use permanent hair dyes and chemical irons have a higher risk of developing breast cancer compared to those who do not use chemicals in their hair.
"Wow. The news today …" Grant wrote in the caption. “The numbers are amazing, especially for women of color. I became gray prematurely in the early 20's … and dyed my hair all colors on the road until I could no longer tolerate the toxicity of the dyes. "
Grant explained that at age 30 he decided to let his hair "turn blond,quot;, but he also loves and supports the idea that every woman should be able to choose how she looks at any age. However, if women are disappearing from beauty standards, then it is something we should talk about.
According to The New York Times, the term "womxn,quot; is an all-inclusive term that refers to biological women, transgender women, non-binary individuals and women of color to include "women and those affected by misogyny or women's issues ".
As for his relationship with Reeves, a source told him People magazine after the actor walked hand in hand with Grant at the gala who wants to share his life with his longtime business partner and collaborator.
