Since I was about 25 I noticed a white hair in my eyebrows, now I’ve noticed more. Am I ageing already? Or is it a deficiency¬†in something that is causing white hairs in my eyebrows?

  • Nope, it’s just ageing. Fun, isn’t it?

  • I think its aging. I had them in my 20s. Depends on genetics

  • Now that you’re mentioned it I remember having one in my 20s. It’s nothing to worry about and can easily be coloured with a brow pencil.

  • Same here – I thought it was aging

  • I’ve had them since that age. It started off as a single white one and now I have a few more greys as well. I just pluck the really obvious one/s out and use a bit of pencil or shadow occasionally

  • a quick lick of mascara will hide that lol. pluck it out- no biggie

  • I have one too, I pull it out! It’s brown at the roots but white on the end? Creeps me out. I figure it’s a grey hair as it’s wirey and thicker than the rest. I haven’t spotted any grey hair elsewhere though!

  • I have them too. And not just my eye brow. I have one on my arm. And it comes out thicker than the other hairs. I pull it out regularly and it just keeps growing back.

  • A lot of people have them and unless you are up close to someone’s face you cannot see them.

  • I agree, it is in the genes. There are two of us out of 7 sisters with the lucky break, lol. I use 1000 lashes to keep them hidden.

  • I get them too – I just assumed they were like the scattered greys I keep finding!

  • I have some too and it’s only me out of my 10 sisters and they all laugh at me

  • As far as I know, it’s just a function of ageing… sorry!

  • I’d say it’s aging combined with possible sun exposure causing the lightening of hair possibly? I pluck any that I find

  • I have grey ones too which have naturally occurred and have nothing to do with any type of deficiency. I quite like them as they are very individual looking! :)
