I am mortified. I'm stymied. I'm at a loss for words....okay, maybe not. I found a WHITE - no, not grey - a white eyebrow hair this morning!!!!!!!

I, I....I have no words.

I looked at some pictures from a couple of weeks ago, and it wasn't there. But it's there now!!!


Now, don't get me wrong. I am not a stranger to the business of finding white hairs. I have been getting grey hairs on my head since I was 16 years old. Egads...that was 19 years ago! I remember my mother and hairdresser accusing me of using too much White Rain on my head and it was sucking the color out of my beautiful brunette tresses. So, alas, I put aside my trust can of aerosol lacquering spray and quit perming my hair in an attempt to please the Gods of Tresses.

So fast forward about 4 years....I'm in college...and the grey is getting progressively more noticeable. So I go out for a clandestine meeting with Ms. Clairol at the local Eckerd Drug Store. I find my perfect match and sneak back into my apartment as quiet as a mouse. Next day, I'm fresh as a daisy. Not a grey in sight. I feel like a new woman.

It was all downhill from there.

I've now been coloring my hair permanently since I was 25 years old...egads....that's been 10 years!!! It's been colored for so long I hardly remember what my natural shade of brunette really is. I've done highlights and lowlights and double processing and triple processing and no processing and high speed processing and downlights and uplights and everything in between.

I'm now afraid I'm going to have to get my hairdresser to start dyeing my eyebrows when she does my hair...ugh...I'M NOT THAT OLD, FOR PETE'S SAKE!!!!!

Ah - I have been doing my eyebrows for years now. Somehow, they just don't grow in to same red that is my "natural" color - very distressing, LOL. Hey - I tagged you this morning on my blog - that should cheer you up, right?

Laura, I feel for you girl because I started finding those white eyebrows a couple years ago. but...we can be whatever color we want! Try red next! I love being a red-head and my husband likes it too!
