Full Circle

gingerI have red hair.  Actually, it’s strawberry blonde.  As a kid, I always wanted blonde hair.  The whiter the better.  I envied my blonde friends and ignored the adults who told me how special it was to have strawberry blonde hair.  As I grew older, I began to appreciate the color of my hair.  It wasn’t so bad to have something that only 2% of the US population had.  It wasn’t so bad to be different.

And then last year,  I noticed it.  I had one eyebrow hair that was white.  Not gray, but white.  A little research revealed that red heads don’t go gray.  They turn white.  My childhood dream has come true.  Except this wasn’t exactly the way I envisioned it.  One hair at a time.  Lovely.

    At least you’ll have pretty white hair and not dingy gray hair! And did you know that red heads will soon be extinct? http://digitaljournal.com/article/220229
