My first grey hair!!

I am declaring today a day of official mourning.....



This morning, while I was examining the web of "fine lines" (sounds so much better than wrinkles) that have set up residence under my eyes, I happened to glance up and I saw what looked like a grey hair - the shock, the horror! So I plucked it out (ouch!) and examined it closely under a bright light, the results were inconclusive, so I layed it against a dark surface and I was forced to admit that it is indeed a snowy white hair.


My first grey hair. Mourn with me people.....

Have you heard that by pulling out the gray hair two will grow in its place? lol Gill, you have earned each and everyone that you will find. But don't worry, that's why we love Lady Clariol!

OH those fine lines Gill! Thank goodness there are miracle hair colors for that little gray strand (when it grows back) But these lines... I swear it's the way I sleep... I squish my face as I lay on my side and I think I see new ones each morning! If only there was a non-surgical way to fix them!
You're lucky that this is your first gray, most of my clients are gray in their 20's!
Don't mourn sweet Gill, Be thankful its not a headfull! xox

LOL! I think I found my first grey hair about 5 years ago - not sure how I noticed the poor bugger seeng as I've been dying my hair since I was 19 - first blonde, now dark brown!! Anyway, he now has a little posse of grey friends to keep him company which annoys me no end. Still, there's nothing Redken can't cure!!
