Um, Not OKAY!

So lately the crown of my head has been hurting.

And now I know why.

I found, much to my loathing, an entire cluster of....

GRAY HAIR!

What? Hello? I am 36. I thought I had a few more years. Sure, one here or there... but a cluster?
It is as if those gray hairs are having a little love fest and multiplying their seed. It is a little more difficult to pull out a handful of gray hair instead of one. But I did it! (Surprisingly, my head didn't feel any better.)

Don't mess with me, GRAY! I am NOT IN THE MOOD!!

I think I was about 34 when I spotted my first ones...millions! but the good thing is they weren't the wiry grays that I have now! Rejoice...it means you are maturing! gack!

AAAhhhh! I started noticing them as soon as I had a teenager. I think it inevitably comes with the territory. Embrace it! Ya, right!!

I'm 46...my gray hairs speak to me everyday, but they're schizophrenic. Someday they say:
"Pull Us OUT! There's only a few of us! You won't even miss us! DO it!"
and other days they say:
"Look, with 7 kids, your body is rewarding you outwardly, tellign the world you've earned us. Don't pull us out or try to cover us up."

Which do I listent to? Well, they're still on my noggin. I've always been a pushover.

Now might be a fun time to visit your fabulous SIL E & have her try out some new colors on you...who knows, you might make an amazing red head! :D I think pregnancy makes me adventurous...or maybe that's how I keep getting pregnant. Either way, have fun with it! :D

Oh man, I'm so sorry! I have been getting a few here and there, and I'm 32. We're getting older! Am I okay with that??? :)

I found a few, just a couple but my hair dresser ( okay I say that like I go all the time to a fancy place, this is Great ClipsLOLOLO) anyway, he told me to go to some salon supply place and get this stuff by Matrix, it's a shampoo and conditioner that you can use to match the natural color of your hair, it totally works!!! when I got my hair cut last time, she didn't find any grey at all and it's cheaper than highlights.

it tints the grey for you. Good luck, growing old hurts any way you look at it LOL

I color my hair to hide my grays, but one sneaky little bugger snuck through. It was gray down to the tip, and my hair is LONG! How did I miss that one?!?! I colored every single strand but ONE?! What are the chances?

You PULLED them out?!? No way am I pulling my hair out. That's what dye is for.

I love that last line - LOVE.

And my brother first started getting gray at fifteen. Really.
