Pulling out your white hairs......

What's your take on this practice? I always hear if you pull one out you'll get 3 more, this just sounds dumb and has no scientific reasoning to me.

  • That myth is stupid. I don't see the point in pulling them out. If you continued this practice your entire life, you'd pull all of your hair out. I'd just dye

  • I agree w/ LaurenKaye29. I usually get one and pull it out and nothing happens.

  • Total myth as a matter of fact keep doing that and it will eventually destroy the folical and the hair will never grow back, so what you do get is bald lol
