Hair story

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.

So, I’m a bit jealous when I hear that celebs like Anderson Cooper and Bret Favre have been offered millions of dollars to cover their gray hair for the “Go Away Gray” company.

“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.)

Anderson Cooper turned her down.  Smart move.  His silver locks are his calling card.  I don’t know how Favre responded.

We’ll just have to wait and see.  And wait and see again.  And then, wait and see again.

  1. I hear ya! And coloring it just doesn’t do it anymore. So I gave up. I’m grey in the front, brunette for the rest. Women want to know what I do to get it like that. I tell them to get married and have kids.
    I never heard of this stuff. If Brett Favre is using it all the more reason not to try it. He’s a retired football player, what, 3 times over? You’re kidding me? One too many knocks to the ‘ol noggin’.

  2. Product does not work just a placebo for Mrs. Beggan to scam people
    she has been doing It for years watchout can’t be trusted
