The Truth About Turning Gray… From Someone Who’s Turning Gray


You know how people say not to pluck your gray hair?  Sure, being natural is beautiful.  Sure, having gray does give you that certain aura of wisdom.  Yada yada and all that jazz.  But let’s face it, the gray hair is usually that one lone eye-sore.  Sometimes it even has a different texture that is just annoyingly daring you to pluck it out.

But whatever you do, DO. NOT. PLUCK. IT. OUT.

Yes, the initial satisfaction of getting rid off that eye-sore is quite fulfilling.  Yes, your head will look like it’s returned to normal.  But only TEMPORARILY!  Because guess what?  Once that gray hair grows back, you don’t just have that gray eye-sore, you now have a SHORT. SPIKY gray eye-sore.  And if you pluck out a bunch of it?  Well, the cactus I saw today at Trader Joe’s kinda, sorta reminded me of the head of someone I knew my whole life.

Just sayin’

You are welcome.

P.S. Yes, instead of growing out my bangs, I am now growing out my grays.
