So this old wive's tale got brought up today and I thought I'd set the record straight: pulling a gray hair out will NOT make more gray hairs grow! The hair follicle only has room for one hair. brought up a very valid point: if this were true, don't you think people who were balding would just sit around plucking the hairs that were left to produce more hair and never go bald? Going gray is usually determined by your genes. However, there other things that can contribute to when you start going gray: anemia, thyroid issues and smoking to name a few. But plucking them will not make matters worse, so don't hesitate to pluck a gray hair!
