Okay. We’re going here. Because I’m curious how other people feel about this… and I’m over here at a loss for what to do.
I noticed my first gray hair when I was, I think, 17. But it was one. An isolated event, I thought. By my freshman year of college, I noticed a couple more. And every year since there have been a few more. But it wasn’t too bad. I always try to part my hair in a way that covers the particular bad spot or use a swipe of mascara to do a quick little coverage.
But… I swear, I woke up one morning and I went from having a few gray hairs to, like, going gray. I’m not exaggerating… There is a PATCH of gray hair. Even if I wanted to pluck them out, I’d create a bald spot.
(Actually, you can kind of see what I’m talking about in my headshot… And that’s just the tip of the melanin iceberg.)
So now I’m at this point of whether to do something about it (read: dye it)… or to let it be. I feel like this is a pivotal decision and, at 24, I just feel… oh, I don’t know, too young to have to deal with it!
As much as I’d love to do something drastic like go with something completely different (I always feel like I missed my calling as a redhead), I’m leaning towards doing some sort of temporary hair dye in that one area. Can you even do that? Hm, I wonder.
But then again… Linda Fargo does make gray hair look pretty darn chic.
Does anyone else have gray hair? Thoughts/opinions on dyeing?
PS I may have gray hair, but I do so love this curling iron.
