Too Young for Grey Hair

Things have been a little stressful the past 3 months, to say the least. But maybe more stressful than I thought.

My hair has been falling out more than normal. Ridiculous clumps of hair, it's a pain! In the shower...ah, just gross!

And then I have these baby hairs that are sprouting up.

So I went to get my hair done, and the lady asks, "Have you been stressed lately?"

Um, yes, just a little bit. She said, "Wow, I can tell, look at all these baby hairs from where your hair has been falling out."

After we finished coloring my hair, she says, "So how long have you had grey hairs?"

WHAT?!? I turn 25 in 2 weeks, I do not have freakin' grey hairs!

According to her...I did. According to her, stress has wrecked havoc on my hair.

Eh, I'm scared!

There is a new line to deal with stressed out hair. Some call it "deStress de la Tres" or you could call it margaritas.

I started getting gray hair at age 21 (shortly after I married my ex...) At least I can blame mine on a 'man'! lol

I started going bald at 17. Now I'm getting white (not grey, WHITE) hairs in my beard.

I had a friend who had a pure white streak in her hair by the age of 17 and by 25 was completely white. So hon it could be worse. Of course I won't know since being part Indian my hair has just started making the transition and at 50 I have less grey hair than most my age.

But I'm with Amy, marguaritas wouldn't hurt at all.
