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

    • what kind of headpiece did you wear? or are planning to wear?
    • Hi there! I visited Now Amber PV in February for a wedding event for travel industry professionals. I stayed there for 4 days and they hosted us for several events and two dinners and everything was amazing. Their wedding department staff/team is incredible and the designs/decor were all crafted so beautifully!! There are several wonderful options to host events and I was so impressed by how they utilized and transformed each of the spaces. We had events in the lobby, which has the most beautiful view. On the beach, in the middle area terrace of the resort, and on the pool deck. The service was top notch and entertainment was fantastic. As a resort, it was a great place to spend a getaway. The resort staff is great, the food/drinks were all delicious and the overall vibe of the place is just perfect. Your daughter has picked a wonderful resort to host her wedding! If you have any more specific questions about Now Amber, feel free to ask here! Or shoot an email to info@wrighttravelagency.com -- this is the official travel agency of this forum and several members on our team have stayed at Now Amber and had couples book their wedding there 😊
