Myth 4: Yanking Out Gray Hairs Will Cause More to Sprout in Their Place

The number of hairs in each follicle is genetically determined (typically it ranges from one to four strands in each), and simply tweezing stubborn grays won’t increase that number.

Still, plucking is a bad habit: If you pull out the same strand repeatedly, you can damage the roots so it won’t grow back.

A better alternative? Embrace your salt-and-pepper locks or dye them. If you’re less than a third gray, try a semipermanent dye, which gently blends away grays and washes out in approximately 28 shampoos. If a third or more of your locks are silver, go with permanent color, which completely covers grays.

Camouflage silver: Wear your hair in wavier styles that lift at the roots, and leave your part jagged, not straight.
