  • I found my first gray hair when I was 21. I was so sad. Now I'm 29 and I pluck a few out everyday.

  • I had them before I was 27. I'm almost completely skunked up at 40. Thank goodness for hairdressers. How is your thyroid? My doctor insists that women who begin to gray before the age of 30 almost always have a problem with their thyroid.

  • my husband had it at 21, i found my first one at 32 but pretended it wasnt there, now a year later i have a few more. The women in my family tend to get them later in life, everyone in my husbands family starts to turn by 18 (hopefully the kids take after me :)

  • I think I first started getting them in my early 20s. I'm now 28 and see a few every now and then. Luckily, my hair is light so I think people don't notice them

  • I started noticing them when I was about 24, which was sometime after I married my ex. Now Im 31 and I think I am about 40% gray. I usually dye it every 3 months cause the gray doesn't stay dyed as long:( But being pregnant, Im gray and hating it!
