To抆or not to 抆?
Can I pull that white hair out?
For those with white hair problem, there is a struggle on whether or not to pull them out. Some people say pulling one out will give you three more and others say it has no effect. In reality, as people get older, qi and blood becomes weaker, and this is why aging leads to white hair. It is still important not to overlook white hairs, replenishing blood to strengthen liver and kidney may help to delay appearance of white hair. The truth is pulling a white hair does not lead to more of them. The important thing is to maintain healthy qi and blood circulation along with kidney, and this will increase the chance of dark hair regrowth. However it is still important to note that pulling out white hairs may damage the hair follicle causing hair not to regrow at all.
