  • Wow...I was thinking about posting the same question earlier today. I've been letting my dyed dark hair grow out the last couple of months and I'm amazed at the amount of gray that's up there (will be 28 tomorrow). I like my hair dark, but am considering just letting it go.

  • I'm 34 and have quite a bit of gray and have since I was a teen (found my first gray hair at 13 and had noticeable streaks at 18). I don't dye my hair. the gray is part of who I am, I don't feel a need to cover it up. I actually get compliments for it. People seem to think it looks cool. Shrug.

  • I've got some gray spots but I don't know how much because I've been coloring my hair since before my son was born. I'm almost 27.

  • YES, and I'm not very excited about it! I'm only 27 and have quite a few..... my mom's mom went completely grey when she was 26! I do dye my hair, I'm not ready to be all grey yet.

    I also have really curly hair and I've found that when they turn grey they don't curl as well, kinda wierd.

  • I started going grey when I was 23 (right after my oldest was born). I have been coloring for a long time, not only because of the grey but my natural color (dark brown) has gotten really flat and lifeless.

  • I found my first gray hair earlier this year, I am 29. I've always dyed my hair so that has nothing to do with the gray sprout. I do yank that puppy out of my head though :-) Dh is 39 and very gray. He seems to add more gray by the day but I like it. I think he looks hot!!

  • I started growing a white patch in my hair in high school. I'm 40 now, and I've been dyeing my hair since I was in middle school.

  • i'm 34 and yes i am grey. not that grey but its been a few years. i been dying since i was around 23 -24 but not because of grey hair but mostly just to change my look. mostly high lights and then i went red. its just fun to dye the hair even if i didn;t have grey hair i would do it.
