Myth 6: Plucking Grey Hair Can Result In Multiple Grey Strands Sprouting From The Scalp

Truth: The colour change of your hair is caused due to the absence of melanin in the hair follicle. As your cells stop melanin production, your hair turns grey or white. So, plucking your grey hair can’t increase the number of grey strands. Additionally, this habit may disturb the neighbour roots, which may result in hair loss or weakening of the other roots.

But, it is good to avoid plucking grey hair as it may lead to thinning or scarring. It can even prevent hair regrowth at that particular spot.
