According to Cosmetic scientist Randy Schueller, “There’s no harm in plucking a grey hair, but it also doesn’t do you much good.” Basically, pulling a gray hair does not make a three new ones grow back in it’s place. It also does not keep another gray from growing back.
“The follicle (the little tube beneath the skin that produces the hair) is still alive and will produce another hair to replace the one that was pulled out. There is some good news: If you’re lucky, when the new hair grows back it may be a little less grey than its predecessor.”
The only problem one may face is if you are a serious plucker, you can possibly damage the hair follicle to the point where another hair will never grow back. Your best bet is to ether go gray or color. If you have a couple and they are truly annoying you then plucking may be the way to go, but if you find you are plucking too often then you might want to stop and try another method.
So, no more worries of three growing back in one gray’s plucked spot. Just know that it will grow back and it may or may not be gray again.
Do you pluck, color or let it go gray Naturals?
