Okay, so you’ve probably guessed what today’s post is about: I’ve had white hairs since I was 15 years old, so for around four years now. Whenever I’d go to the doctors to see why I’m basically turning into a grandma at 19 years old, they’d either tell me it’s hereditary or that it’s because I stress a lot (which I do). I was worried at first, but I’ll admit it doesn’t worry me anymore. I’m also really glad there’s nothing wrong with me on the hair side of things (I hope!).
I didn’t have many white hairs at first, but they’ve definitely become more noticeable in the last couple of years, so I just tend to cover them up with some mascara. You’re probably wondering why I don’t just dye my hair – in all honesty, I’ve dyed my hair before when I was around 13 years old but I just don’t think I will again. The reason being that I’ll constantly have to keep up with it to make sure my white hairs are covered and, really, who has the time? Ok I’ve actually got a lot of time on my hands but I’m just too lazy. Plus, if I do go ahead and dye it there’s no going back. For now, I’m going to stick to covering it with mascara or just tying it in ways so it’s hardly visible (I’ve learnt a trick or two!) but who knows, maybe in the future I will go ahead and dye my hair. You’ll be of the first to know.
I’ve tried all sorts of things to get my hair healthier, like using oils, eggs (yes, eggs) and trying to eat healthier. But if it’s hereditary, I doubt it’ll be changing back anytime soon! What do you think I should do?
I know this post’s a little different and a little random, but I’m hoping to do more posts about myself and my life so you can get to know the blogger behind the blog – lucky you, eh? (I kid!)
Love, as always,
