A very weird question

DD is a little over 18 months. I was playing with her hair and noticed she has a white hair. It's right in the back near her cowlick. It's a real white hair!

Would you yank it out?
Try to train her hair so you can't see it?
Or leave it alone?


I haven't decided so I left it alone. But my first instinct was to yank it!

Re: A very weird question

i know lots of people who have/had white hair (usually in a small patch) from birth (or whenever they first grow hair, lol). it's a form of birthmark. it usually ends up looking very cool

Re: A very weird question

If is it just one, I'd probably yank it. I did that for myself when I was younger and noticed one lone white hair - it never grew back white.

But if it was more than one, I'd leave it.

Re: A very weird question

I always thought they grow right back? I have a very large hair on my right finger left side so my bands sit on it. I have pulled that thing so much over the years but it keeps coming back! You wouldn't notice it unless you looking right at that finger but it is like the thickness of an eyelash instead of thin body hair. I also have a dark hair that grows under my chin and I do pull that one as it looks weird.

Re: A very weird question

It could be a sign of vitilago. My oldest son has it. It causes the pigment of the skin and hair to disappear. He has several white spots on his body from it.
