Often, while speaking to young women who have reached that ripe “old” age of 25
or have just had their first child, they will say they just found a grey hair! They also confess to yanking them out with tweezers, but is it ok to pull out grey hairs? These woman are young, vital, enterprising females just starting careers. These pesky greys, however, never seem to know this or even care!
Then, there are the pluckers. The problem being they will pluck anything that happens to be
in the immediate vicinity of a grey hair! For those who have the grey showing up in the front, it is even worse. When is it ok to pull out grey hairs? Never! What if all the front of the head was grey and you kept plucking the hairs as they came in? A few of my clients had this obsession which they had to correct because the hair started growing less and was messing up the hairline.
If you have ever wondered is it okay to pull out grey hair, please consider colouring your hair whether in the salon or at home or buying a colour stick. There are also numerous temporary colour products available. Colouring products are available in liquid, powder or waxes and if you are skittish about chemicals, natural colour brands abound.
