No gray hair for me. I’ve taken care of that issue for years. I’m a nice golden brown color, and I’m staying that way for the next ten years at least.
But what is up with my EYEBROWS?
My eyebrows have always looked like this:
They have an okay shape, as long as I do some serious and frequent hedge-trimming.
But now they are going gray. White really. And that’s not as easy to fix as the top of my head, given the proximity to my precious eyeballs. I color them in with the smudgy tip from my eyeliner, but I think they are winning.
I have considerable artistic ability – as you can see by the expert sketch above – so I’ll continue to apply my color remedy.
What I don’t understand is the strays. If my eyebrows are getting white, you would think that the extraneous eyebrows that grow all over my lids would get white too. BUT NOooo……! I’ve got white eyebrows and black weeds.
I pluck out the unruly guys. Every evening I pluck. Every morning I have another. How fast does eyebrow hair grow? I think I could be the Rapunzel of eyebrows.
The women’s magazines warn you not to overpluck your brows, because you damage the follicles and they won’t grow back. Well, I’ve been trying to damage my rogue follicles for TWENTY-FIVE YEARS. They are not only healthy; I think they are procreating.
I am wondering if my eyebrow hairs are perhaps experiencing some age-related regret. All their little lives, they wished they were eyelashes, so they are migrating down there — sort of a ciliary bucketlist.
