Because I am a Girl, and a VAIN one at that

Today, I spotted a single white hair hidden amongst black. At risk of sounding like a drama queen/ vain/ naive/ silly woman.. I was devastated! Rather, I am devastated. I suppose the time's finally come.. to let go of shiny black and embrace shiny white... BUT WHYYYYYYYY MEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!!!

Do tell me, what did you feel like when you found you're first white? And if you haven't, do me a favor and don't say anything at all!

Hey dont panic.
Start eating Amla. You get them in supermarkets. Sweet amla pieces in packets.
You will not have any more grey and what grey you have will turn black. Have 4 pieces daily.
Most people dont realize what you eat is more important than what you apply - both skin and hair.

Also, soak almond - 6 pieces - overnight in water, peel off skin in the morning and eat. good for skin, hair, memory, heart....

Never apply hair colour, dye - it will lead to hair loss. stay away from all chemicals.
Oil your hair. Leave it for 1 hour or more and then apply shikakai powder (Meera, Raaga) to wash instead of shampoo.

Sid: Really? No whites????

Anon: Amen to that!

Sowmya: Of all the comments you have ever made, this one was the most touching. I will totally follow the regimen... but I am totally in awe with the fix it solution, nothing calms someone as much as a fix it solution. thank you tons sow!

As you said, there is no etiquette for grief. I won't say a word.

i loved my first immature white hair that turned in some 4 years back. . Now there are a couple of them sprinkled here and there and I am not even 30. (ok on the verge of being 30 I should say.) But my worry is a small part of my beard that is turning white, that means frequent shaving...

I have had more than my fair share og whiten hairs and am not near 30 for another couple of years... but i know that with so much stress they are bound to come one or the other day... so resigned to fates :D

Vimal: You have no blacks too...*stab* *stab* *stab*

Harish: I think salt and pepper is good on a man, somehow increases the quotient for sex appeal a la Richard Gere. At least I always thought that, would you agree? It's nice to know you embraced the white.. and well hey, something very unnatural if you had salt and pepper head and a totally black beard, no?

Aash: Same thing as Harish, isn't it good for a guy to have the whites. Also because it's stress related is it directly proportional to a man's success?
