O wiry unsightly gray hair, How I deplore thee,
For nearly a decade have I waged this war.
Plucking, highlighting, and dying
You never cease to annoy me!
At the very young age of 24, a friend of mine walked past me as I sat at a desk and said, "Erin, YOU HAVE A GRAY HAIR!"
"Pull it out!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" I squealed.
And he did. Later that day I scheduled my first appointment to have my hair colored.
At this point in my life, I have plucked them, "hid" them in blond highlights, and covered them in semi-permanent hair dye. Nothing is working. They inevitably rear their ugly follicles in 6 to 8 weeks. I am hesitant to go the permanant color route, for fear of having to color roots every 6 weeks, which is both expensive and time consuming.
Am I going to wage this war for the rest of my life?
You can bet your gray hair I am! My vanity will not have it any other way.
Gray hair...all I have to say to you is it is ON and you are going down!
