Recently, I noticed I have lots of grey hair underneath my black hair. I was quite shocked as grey hair symbolized aging. In fact, I should just admit that I'm indeed old. I'm already a mother of 2 and my eldest will be going to primary 1 starting early next year. So, it is just not surprising that I have grey hair. But, somehow I just can't seems to accept this fact.
I still remember seeing my mum plucking her grey hair in front of the mirror when I was a child. Probably in my primary school days. I always asked mum why the hassle to pluck away those grey hairs? They are your hairs too. Mum would said they looked ugly and it will be very obvious telling people that you have aged.
Now, it is my turned and I just finds it hard not to pluck away those grey hair whenever I visited the toilet. The mirror above the sink is just like a reminder telling me to pluck some before I leave the toilet. Automatically, after I washed my hand, I will flip up my black hair to look for those grey ones and pluck one strand after another. It is just so tempting to get rid of them.
This makes me think too. I've noticed men are not so particular in removing their grey hairs. My dad and most uncles have grey hairs and they don't seems to be bothered. Maybe, men looked wiser with a head full of grey hairs !
While women, they are rather particular. Mum and aunts even went to have their hair dyed. Some went to saloon while mum and other aunts uses 'Inai' to dyed their hair. Instead of black, they have shiny dark golden brown hair. Nice colour though.
