:(

I found my first gray hair the other day. I dreaded the day when I'd spot a gray hair on my own head. How did I deal with it, you ask? I pulled it out, of course. Looking forward to seeing two more gray hairs growing in that very same spot. Sigh.

Oh no, a sad day indeed. :) I started noticing gray hairs popping out when I turned 30. It's been downhill from there!

Your FIRST grey hair? You should consider yourself lucky! If memory serves me right, I think you're 9 years older than I am and I have definitely been finding those things in my hair for a couple years now. They like to hide on the side of my head under all sorts of hair, but if I see them, I immediately pull them out like you. Grr.

NOOOOO STOOOPPPPP DOOONNNTTT! Seriously though dont LOL I have been pulling them out Johns head and I swear the old wives tale is true....if he keeps insisting I pluck he is going to be bald not gray!!

I found one in my hair a while back....I went back to blonde sharpish ;)

Ne t'inquiete pas! I found my first one at 26 and pulled it out. I don't believe that old wives tale - I've been pulling them out one by one for a long time now and I'm still beating them!

I do remember the feeling though. It was a bit depressing. :)

I've been plucking them for a few years now--although over the past six months I think I've lost the battle. Now they're coming in multiples and curly (I have straight hair).

Sigh.

Em, you are gorgeous and would be with a whole head of grey hair. Just so you know.

That reminds me, I need to get my hair highlighted.

One? I'm 38 and my hair colour has come out of a bottle for the last 18 years. That's when my one grey hair became uncontrollable.

Welcome to the club!!! I get my hair colored every few months to hide my gray.

Just be glad they're not "down south"

Wait, you have to hope you go completely gray while still living in France so you can use that fabulous 'Phytoargent' shampoo!!
