FYI – The Old Wives’ Tale Seems to Be True

People take note. The Old Wives’ Tale that says if you pull out a grey hair, two will grow back in its place seems to have a ring of truth to it.

This week, while stuck in traffic, I have been pulling out my grey hair, strand by strand. Last night I even pulled out the little curly ones that seem to stick straight up and out. While I wasn’t completely grey/white-free, the colour-less hair was certainly harder to find.

I woke up this morning to find more grey hair, not two per one pulled (otherwise I would have woken up to a head of grey hair) but enough to make me think perhaps I will just leave the grey ones alone.

Tee hee! So true. The more you fight the probem, the more harder it gets to control it.

This should make you feel better: I have been completely grey for years. I started getting grey hairs when I was about 20. Related: I don't remember what my natural colour is. Thank god for hair dye.

Sorry about your greying issues. If it makes you feel any better I've got a bunch of them too - which with my other hair issues I just think is really, really, unfair. lol

Cheers and Happy Holidays :-)
