How Mood affects when you spot your first White Hair

How white hair affects your mood

It may be pre-mature or just at the right time, but as soon as you see your first white hair so many calculations might take place in your mind and your mood might change as a result.

The first thing you will start to think about is that you are growing old. You might even go far and think that you are becoming weaker or less physically capable. Many people will compare their progress in life to their achievements the second they see that white hair.

But, mood will be 100% dependent on the type of processing that always takes place in the mind. If for example a man believed that white hair makes people look wise and more handsome then actually seeing white hair might make him feel good.

On the other hand a man who believes that his goals are still far from his reach might get really sad when he sees white hair as he might conclude that he is running out of time. See i am too old to start over.

The amount of white hair

Now as the amount of white hair increases a person’s emotional intensity will increase as well. So if a person felt bad when he initially saw the first white hair then probably his emotions will keep going worse as gets more white hair unless he changes something about his life or thoughts.

Many people , especially women, start to get concerned about their looks when they get white hair. This concern might keep growing as the white hair increases and as a result the change in emotions might become more intense.
