Gray Hair Questions

Does anyone know if gray hairs are: new hairs that have grown in gray, or old hair that has turned gray? And is it ok to just pull them out completely, or will that destroy the hair follicle and prevent anymore hair from growing in that spot?

  • They are usually new hairs. And pulling them out only makes room for new ones to grow in! There is nothing you can do to prevent them, you can just cover them!

  • white hair- no hair grown in, usually shorter and thinner

    grey hair- hair that has turned gray, usually very thick
