If I pull out a gray hair, will two more grow out?
When you pull out the gray hair, you are rupturing the hair follicle. While the follicle is regenerating another hair, most likely a gray hair is growing next to the hair you originally pulled out.

When vacationing, how can I maintain my hair in warm weather?
If your hair is color-treated, you might want to give your hair a warm weather break. Start by avoiding shampoos that contain oil and glycerin, castile soaps which may fade the color, and refrain from using clarifying shampoos that can actually strip the color from your hair. But most beneficial for hair is to keep it wrapped; do not expose your hair to the sun for a prolonged period of time. UV rays can destroy any moisture locked in your hair. Choose shampoos that contain conditioning properties. The key word is condition. Extra, deep and leave-in conditioners are the source to healthier hair during warm weather. And since the weather is warmer, why not lay low on using heated appliances that rob your hair of essential oils and moisture?
Should I consider using organic products on my hair, rather than "manufactured" products?
There is no guarantee that these "organic" products are any better than manufactured products. Even organic products may contain certain chemicals. Even if they are "all natural," the percentages of certain ingredients may or may not be controlled or FDA approved. If you have any question about a hair product's ingredients or their effect, ask your doctor.
