How Old Were You When You Got Your First Grey (Gray?) Hair?

I am only 24 and don't think its fair that I am finding "old lady hair" on my head.

  • I was around 26. I find it unfair too. I still battle acne too. I'm too young for grey hair, and too old for zits. Why am I dealing with both?! (I'll be 30 in 2 weeks.)

  • I was 13. By 18 I had noticeable streaks of gray. By 24 I had a LOT of gray. I got so sick of going to get my hair cut and the girl asking if I knew my hair was going gray--duh, it's my hair.
    I'm 34 now and have 2 very large streaks of gray running down either side of my head from my part. I don't color it, it's just who I am so I feel no need to cover it up.

  • When I was 20, I found 3 gray hairs! I was like, WHAT? Wait until you find gray hair elsewhere on your body! That's disconcerting!!

  • I'm blonde so I may already have them I just can't see them (I'm 32).

  • I must have been in my 50's.

  • My sister found them in her mid to late 20s. The only place I have them is where I had a tick attached when I was like16. If I would let it grow without coloring it, I would probably have a Bonnie Raitt streak.

  • At 38. but some people get them as early as a teenager due to heredity. Sorry... start coloring fast! Lol. Grey hair only adds character!! lol
