Thankful For Every Gray Hair On My Head.

Photo by the author

My beautiful dark brown hair started to change when I was just eighteen years old. I noticed about 6 or 8 greys and swiftly plucked them out. There were too many to pluck by age twenty-five, so I began coloring it. I always tried to match the dark brown I was born with. By the time I was forty, I had to color every two weeks to keep up with the roots. Gray roots with long dark hair make you look bald.
