Gray hair is over taking my head!

I found this on AOL. And everything on the internet is true! LOL

Alcohol may cause hair to gray prematurely

If you started drinking because you thought it made you look older, you may have been onto something. It turns out that regular boozers have twice the amount of premature gray hair as people who lay off the sauce.

 

According to an article published in the Archives of Dermatology, drinking as few as three drinks per day is enough to affect your hair color. Because alcohol stops the production of pigment-providing stem cells called melanocytes, it's very possible to experience graying at an earlier age.

 

The good news is that the damage does not have to be permanent. If you're graying now, cutting back on your drinking may help stop any further progression and even help restore your natural color.

Okay well I barely drink. I mean if there is an occasion or whatever I will drink...but I might have a drink or two during a given month if that....and I have always been this way minus about a 2 year period about 7 years ago when I went out every weekend.... sad.gif

Well, that certainly explains it for me.

No denying I am a heavy boozer.

Case in point -- head still pounding from too much of the sauce on a Tuesday night. lol shots.gif

Oh well, guess I better get tused to all these grays (at least until we start TTC and I've gotta quit the sauce altogether!!!) shots.gif

    • First of all congrats!!! Costa Rica is a magical place for a wedding  Are you working with a travel agency for your rooms? If not, I would highly encourage you to do so because an agent can often help you get in contact with the wedding department to get that conversation/communication going. I would suggest working with Wright Travel Agency, the official agency of this forum. These agents are specialist in destination weddings and have access to great promotions and group perks in addition to being able to secure the best rates for your group. Best of all the agency does not charge any fees to use their service, but it will take a load off your plate not having to worry about arrangements for travel for you and your guests. Shoot an email over to info@wrighttravelagency.com and one of the team members will get back to you and get the ball rolling for your group and the wedding department! Best wishes!!!
