signs of my increasing age...

i'm getting old. 

2 words: white. hairs.

yes, it's true.

about 2 or 3 weeks ago, before i got my hair died again, i was looking at my hair in the mirror and noticed what i thought to be a grey hair. i wasn't totally sure if it was just my natural, mousey, roots coming in, or if it really was a grey hair. the next time i was home, i had my mom look and she thought i was being silly. and then when i went to the hair dresser a few days later, i forgot to ask.

fast forward to last week, and i was looking in the bathroom mirror again at my roots. what? everyone knows the bathroom has the best light (and i'm not quite sure what i'm looking for when i stare at my roots. am i trying to decipher my natural color? see if i can actually watch my hair grow? i don't know but i stare at my roots for a time that isn't normal). anyways, i'm looking and i see it. so i grab my tweezers and pluck out a little baby hair near my hairline and stare at it. sure enough, the 2-3inch hair was half white, half brunette. the next day, i'm staring again, and 2 more. shit. 

i actually couldn't care less about this. i think it's quite funny. i guess it shouldn't come as too much of a surprise, since my moms 2 sisters were grey by the time they hit 30. and i don't imagine that these white hairs are going to grow like weeds all of a sudden, and i'll be grey by the time i'm 25. but if for some reason they do start coming in more, i guess that just means i'll spend the rest of the majority of my life as a blonde. not like i wasn't planning on going back to blonde shortly anyways, it's just that it would be a lot harder to notice it against blonde hair rather than the stark contrast of a brunette.  
although i'll tell you what i'm not down with. possibly being grey before i'm even married. not cool. anyways, now i'm just overreacting.

so, that's that.
i'm now 3 hairs less. white hairs.
ps. i'm 24.5 years old.

I have too many white hairs to count. My virgin hair is no longer virgin as I tries to do root touch up to over some of them, but it's starting to look like I'll need to dye my whole head soon!

hahah that picture is so cute! I think white hair can look sophisticated :) But yes, it definitely would be less noticeable against blonde!

How cute you are! White hair and all! Haha. Don't worry, honey. It happens to everyone. I'm 27 and I've found 3 total...I tried to convince myself it was a side-effect of pregnancy. Turns out that was a joke.

My husband is starting to get grey hair at 24 as well. He freaks out about it a lot though, I just thinks it's cute.

Haha I think you look adorably funny in that pic :) I haven't even dared to check if I have grey hairs though my bf always jokes that he sees a couple which never fails to freak me out. If I looked good as a blonde I would totally rock that all the time to cover up the greys, too!
