THE MYTH BEHIND WHITE HAIR...

I spent too much time in front of the mirror last night.  The problem with doing that was that one tends to see more than one wants to see!  Last night I saw White Hair... and definitely more than I wanted to see!  So I reached for the tweezers and started yanking those buggers out.  In no time I had a little pile of white hair about 30 strands high!  I looked in the mirror with satisfaction, then gasped and peered closer.  I now had 3 little bald patches!  Absolutely Wonderful!  And if that wasn't bad enough I suddenly remembered that old wives tale about every time you pluck a white hair 5 more white hairs will grow back in its place. Absofrickly Wonderfickenful!  So I'm going to be almost bald... and what little hair remains will be white!

Hey wait a minute... if 5 more white hairs grow back to replace each one that was pulled... and I pulled approximately 30... that means that 150 hairs will grow back where the 30 once were.  I can dye them brown and I'll have a wonderful head full of hair!  You can keep your Lady Rogaine... I'm doing it the natural way!  Where are those tweezers?  I may look like one of my daughter's baby doll's head who's hair was brushed too many times... with bare patches here and there... but before long... POOF!  Farrah Fawcett Majors move over!

Those myths just AREN'T TRUE, or so I've been told.

I know I have gray hairs..... I found my first one when I was in my 30's... And I started dying my hair <g>... I wonder how many of those buggers there are now??? To bad we will never know, as I'm going to keep covering them up with color ;P

You crack me up, woman!!  I love the humor you see in the everyday things, and most importantly in the serious things that make us say "oh crap" (keeping it clean)
You have beautiful hair... no matter what color you decide to go :)
Luv,
Promise

Dorn...what's wrong with a little salt/pepper?  It looks pretty. Besides you can point to each & every one of the white hairs and say to whichever family member "see this....you did this!!"  Nice photo by the way...Sandi

Not too long ago, my daughter found a gray hair on my sweater.  She picked it up, showed it to me and said, "It's okay Mom.  It's not attached."  Gee.  That made me feel so much better.  :-P

You think finding a white hair is bad, it depends on where you find it.  I just recently made such an entry in my Journal and don't know whether to laugh or cry.  You  look like you have lovely hair BTW.
