I got my first gray hair at the tender age of 19.
At first, it was enough to pluck the one or two strays I spied. But eventually, I had to trust a professional to cover the growing mobs.
Now? They’ve won the war.
I don’t even like to think about how much money I have spent over the years hiding them from public view. It’s not that I think gray hair is ugly; I’ve seen many women wear it beautifully. I just don’t have the skin tone to pull it off.
If I went gray, I’d have to start spray tanning each week. Fake color of some sort is my destiny.
“Go Away Gray” is a dietary supplement created by Cathy Beggan. Beggan says the pill’s secret is the enzyme Catalase, which breaks down the hydrogen peroxide in our bodies, keeping our hair from going gray.
I don’t know if it really works. But if Beggan paid me $1 million, I’d sure as heck give it a try. (Cathy — are ya listenin’? My cellphone is on.)
We’ll just have to wait and see. And wait and see again. And then, wait and see again.
