    When my strands are going grey they go blonde first, such a nice golden honey that flatters my skin so well. It's cool seeing the white-blonde-brown transition.

    That one hair might just be greying!

    I would stop pulling those hairs out, though!

    Oh I never pull them out, I just separated it from the rest to look at it, it's still sitting very safely on the top of my head

    Maybe it is! I noticed a few more hairs changing from chestnut to red as well, so we'll see how this goes

    thanks for all the replies guys!

    Oh I thought when you said you "pulled" that hair that you pulled it out.

    Thinning hair will turn reddish towards the TIP. It's causing by the hair reaching the end of its growth cycle, miniaturization, and thinning of the hair shaft. I don't know what it means is your hair turns reddish at the roots and darker at the tips. Sorry.

    Yes, that's totally logical and common!

    I've noticed this too with a few of my strands. It's lightening up from the dark brown but it's not quite gray yet. I think that has a lot of Merit.
