Have you started to go gray yet? If yes, how old were you when you spotted your first gray hair?

I was 17 when I first started noticing gray at my temples. I'm in my early 30's now, and have more than my fair share.
Thank God for Hydrience.

  • 36 when I got my first one. I pulled that thing out - it hasn't returned (knock on wood).

  • I'm 63 now and my hair is pretty much all gray. I honestly can't remember when it started turning, but I was pretty young. My dad's hair was snow white and I always thought it was such an honor of distinction on him that when my hair began turning, it did not bother me at all. I have never put anything on it and I am very happy with the way it looks. There's a passage somewhere in the Bible that speaks of white hair being a crown of glory. I like that thought!

  • I was actually 13 years old when I started getting a few gray hairs. Now I am 28 and I have some that show no matter how I fix my hair. I don't mind though, too much, lol.

  •  I'm 46 and I've only just started to pluck the occasional grey.  I'll start to colour when it becomes noticeable but if I'm anything like my mother that won't be until my 60's.

  • I think I was around 29 or 30.....three years and two kids later I have a lot more!! :) Luckily they still cover pretty easily and I probably will for a LONG time!

  • I got my first around 22 and now at 25 I have a few but oh well. I don't pluck or dye maybe someday though. I have dark brown hair I guess it comes with the territory.
