Does Plucking of Grey Hair Make More to Grow Back?

When you find a grey hair you want to get rid of, you usually think of plucking it. The myth is that it is smarter to leave it because if you pluck it, many more grays will grow in its place.

Grey HairIn reality there is no harm in plucking a grey hair, but it also does not do you much good. There is zero benefit to plucking! Plucking the hair will indeed get rid of the gray but it is only temporarily. Hair grows out of follicles (the little tube beneath the skin that produces the hair!) on the scalp, and each follicle has a hair.

The follicle is still alive and will simply produce another hair to replace the one that was pulled out. Seems like a quick solution, doesn’t it? But if you pluck one hair, only one will grow back, no matter what the color! Plucking a grey hair can traumatize the follicle, which over time can cause infection, scar formation or possibly lead to bald patches.

Like it or not the grays are coming. So if you must get rid of them, the best thing to do is – color or trim your hair. Or there is one more solution: Ignore the gray and keep right on ignoring, until you have a head full of gorgeous gray hair.
