I think I have a gray hair. Except I can’t really tell, becuase it could be a random blonde highlight gone bad (or at least that’s what I’m hoping it is….) and I’ve started going through everything in my life that might be causing me enough stress that my body decided it was somehow wasting resources to give my hair, oh, um color! and yes, I’ve been dying it since I was 14, but what if one day I decide I DO want my natural hair color back, and I stop dying it and it all comes in GRAY.
I mean wtf? I’m only 24. And yes, I had a rough childhood, but I know A LOT of people who had rough childhoods whose bodies didn’t just give up the hair color producing function when they hit their mid 20s.
And everyone who’s old keeps telling me I should be happy to be the ripe young age of 24. but HELLO, umm, I think my gray hair clearly shouts that I am, in fact, old! And now I’m all stressed out about that. But don’t tell my body, because I’d like to keep the rest of my hair a nice dirty blonde.
p.s. I would have put up a picture of said ‘gray hair,’ but I couldn’t figure out how to take one where the hairs weren’t blurry.
