They are not particularly noticeable, but a few friends have seen and commented on them. I think they have been there for the last 6-8 years and am wondering if anyone knows why they are white when all my other lashes are dark brown?
I wonder if I pluck them, will they grow back brown like the others?
You've probably damaged the follicles at some point (either physical damage or infection) and they've stopped making melanin. You've seen people with little white patches of head hair overlying old scars? If it's permanent damage (likely as they've been white for a while), plucking them is very unlikely to make them grow back with colour. Do you have any other white patches on your skin or in your hair? Personally, I wouldn't worry about it but might be worth a mention the next time you're at the doctor.
Oh, and mascara? Or tinting? Very metrosexual.
