I have also started to develop quite a few grey hairs.
I found my first grey hair when I was in high school. It freaked me out, but at the time I was angsty and fighting with my mom a lot, so I wrote it off as “stress-induced”.
My sister found the second one when I was in my very early 20’s. We were standing in line for a concert and she plucked this incredibly long grey hair out of the back of my head and waved it around like a majorette flag.
Last year or so, I started noticing them on the top of my head. I tried to tell my girlfriends at work but they laughed and told me I was being ridiculous. I wasn’t even 30 yet!
Well, now I’m 30 and they are very easy to find. I have one in particular that lives in the front left of my hair that GLISTENS. Because I can’t just have grey hair. I get to have sparkly WHITE hairs.
For a while I stressed about it. I plucked them out, refusing to believe they’d come back in stronger numbers. They did. I tried to dye my hair to cover them up. They laughed at the dye and stayed bright and sparkly. They blind people in the parking lot when I get out of the car.
I’ve finally decided to embrace it and think of it as highlights as long as I can. At least until they start getting so numerous that I develop the “salt & pepper” look. (Not to be confused with Salt’n’Pepa. That’s totally different.)
Maybe I’ll totally bleach the front and go “Rogue”. Hmm…
