Aging and hair color

Call it genetics, environmental factors or just aging but I hate it. For the last couple of years I have been getting white hairs, not gray but white. Not a lot of them, just a few and enough to annoy you but I also go about pulling them out with tweezers. Doug at first thought it was funny and now he sees me checking my hair often to see if those pesky stinkers are back. My hair is auburn and it is not like it is noticeable to everyone else, it is to me. Being twenty-nine, I didn't expect to have white hair this early in my life. So now I deal with it the way I know how until some other way comes along.

Aging stinks for sure! I have yet to experience the gray hairs but am definitely terrified of that day!

I've had two gray hairs, I think. White is way better than gray, I think. I always look at my redheads and think they'll have that beautiful white hair when they get old. And yet, I won't get to see it. Oh wow, that just made my heart sink like a rock.

I noticed my knees sagging the other day. that was not a pretty sight. Aging, well, we all do it. It's better than the alternative, I guess.

I got used to those a long time ago. It is the other signs of aging I don't care for but I won't scare you away with the details:)

I have silver hair, not necessarily gray but shiny silver, like my grandaddy's but as of now, I hide it. I'm just not ready to show it. Maybe a few more wrinkles that reveal my true age and I will give in but until then, my hairdresser gets a huge chunk of change from me every 5 weeks. LOL...Carla
