Question:  I have a lot of grey hair?  Should I pluck them out?  Will doing this sprout more grey hair?

Answer: Grannys’ Myth Debunked

No plucking out grey hair does not increase their numbers. And plucking hair is not a good habit anyway. It damages the roots and may result in infection of the scalp-leading to maybe more graying or even hair loss!
