How old were you when you started noticing gray hair?

I am 26 and I am finding more and more gray hairs. Am I too young to get gray hair? It is mostly around the front of my face and temple area. I am seriously thinking about dying it.

  • Mine isn't too noticable it is like highlights. It is single strands of gray. I am hoping they are only in the front. can't see the back of my head that well because my hair is blone they gray is hard to see. Those suckers do hit the light though.

  • i got my first grey hair at 16. i'm not 25 and i pluck atleast 5 to 10 a week. but we have a family history of going gray early. my grandma was almost completely gray by 20. And my little brother is 22 and has some as well. i have really thick hair so i usually just pluck them when i find them, but i have also gone back to a blonde color so it's harder to see them. Your not alone in this issue.

  • 21! I'm 37 now and I'm guessing I'm at least 25% gray under the blonde dye! I'll let it go starting the day after I turn 50!

  • I found my very first strand of grey hair when I was 16. It's not noticable at all. But I had 2 kids before I turned the age of 20, so I'm sure I'll have some shortly =). I'm just about to be 21, with an almost three year old, and an almost one year old...so I'm BOUND to get grey hair. lol

  • I'm skipping grey and going straight to white... and I saw my first white hair, sticking straight up from my part, last year, a week after my positive pregnancy test, LOL! I blamed it on my husband's DNA being in my body, he started going white at 16 :) And now even though the baby's out, the avalanche has started, and I have a bunch of the darn things.
