    Amazing, it was a grey hair; as opposed to a red flat thin hair. That would have been easier, more surface area?!

    Aren't gray hairs generally larger and/or stiffer? Generally speaking.

    Isn't a gray hair like the way it was when it wasn't gray? Like a gray hair is a former colored hair, a hair with no colour pigments left?

    I'm not sure if gray hairs are larger than normally pigmantented hair, but from personal experience RCH's are thicker and probably easier to write on.
