I started getting little random grays around the same age and next week will be getting my grays covered for our wedding 🙂  I’m 34 and now very clearly needing to cover those babies up!

You know, I have curly hair that is sort of a medium brown/auburn but with the curls the gray blends in a little easier so it was pretty easy at first to just ignore it or pluck out the little grays and pretend it wasn’t happening 🙂  But now it’s getting harder and harder which is why I am finally giving in and having it professionally done for the wedding.

My husband has dark blond/light brown hair and he gets a ton of light highlights in the sun.  He was always pulling them out until I made him really look at them and he agreed they were highlights, lol.  Don’t pull them! A lot of times you can tell whether they are really white by the texture.  When hair goes white/gray those hairs are generally coarser than your normal hair.

Don’t pull them out! You know what they say!  

“You pull one out, seven more come to his funeral!” Wink

Yep grey hair is a bit coarser. I have loads. Way too many, at 32. Judge by the roots, though – when you’re due a trip to colour again, check then, in daylight, with an honest friend…
