  • Yep, I've got them. I just let them be. I don't know what I'll do in the years to come as they start to take over.

    The hair follicles of the hairs you keep pulling out have lost the ability to produce pigment. So every time the hair grows back, it grows back in colorless (white). Either shrug your shoulders or dye them.

  • I get one white hair in my left nostil. White like Bob Barker white. I just pull it. It takes months to grow back. So far I don't have any grays or whites on my head.

  • I colored my hair for quite a while (just for fun...boy there were some pretty crazy colors) but stopped BECAUSE of my grays! Isn't that funny? I hate how it looks when a graying woman needs her roots done. I'd rather not cover them up or pull them out because they don't bother me...covering them would make it seem like I was ashamed or something I guess.

    My friends all tease me but I don't mind. I'm 35 and have been living with grays since I was I guess it's fair to say I'm used to them. Though sometimes I catch myself in the mirror and go "WHOA where did that bunch come from?"

  • Bump! Yes I have them but they are barely noticable and I leave them alone.

  • I dye my hair.. I still don't get them and I think when I do I will keep dying.. My grandma has beautiful white hair, and my momma had beutiful dyed! So either one I won't mind... I guess..

  • I've been coloring for quite awhile! I started getting grays at 21,and I'm 36 now,and when my roots show up,I've noticed that I'm about 25% gray already! I'm getting sick of coloring,so at 40,I'm letting it go!

  • I started by pulling them out...but it became too time consuming so I've started coloring

  • I do have white hairs on my head, but my daughters have found a lot of silver ones, too. I don't have any grays.
    I have never dyed my hair and never plan to, so I'll allow God to age me as He will.
    Besides, it looks kind of pretty mixed throughout my red hair. :)
