Help! That first gray hair has started to come out. I wonder how some people panic at the sight of that first strand of gray hair. I can’t really say much about it because I have yet to experience that, but nowadays gray hair is no longer just associated with old age. One of my niece and a nephew for instance already have a few strands of gray, and they are in their teens.
Do you know that there is really no truth to that old wives tale that pulling ones gray hair will cause three to sprout? But let not that be the reason to start plucking those gray strands. When we pluck, the follicle does not die. That means, the hair will grow back and that will still be gray. Worse, that strand will remain to stick out until it is long enough to blend with the rest of the hair.
So what do we do as soon as those first few grays start to show? Either you embrace it and decide to go silver naturally or you can start concealing by using those easy to apply touch up kits. Hey, it’s not that tough a decision to make. Whatever your choice, it’s something that will not cause any pain. Unlike when you decide to wear an ill-fitting shoes, you know that the morning after a day of wearing that pair, it is likely that you’ll suffer from Plantar Fasciitis. With gray hair, it’s just a matter of deciding whether to hide or to embrace. It’s your choice!
