Eek! Gray hair!

How old were you when you first started noticing your hair turning grey?

I'm 34 and I've started finding strands that look like blonde from afar in my very dark brown hair but up close they are very much silver...  ugh! 

It just feels like I should have another 10 or 15 years before I need to start worrying about it.


ETA:  YAY!! My first featured post!    And thank you to everyone who replied.  I'm not feeling so bad about it now that it seems to be pretty normal.

I found my first grey hairs when I was 16.  My mom doesn't color her hair and she has very few grey hairs. My dad was 54 when he died and he had only a few. I am 41 now and have pure white hair.  I wear it in a pixie cut and it looks very cute.  I always had mousy thin hair my white hair is actually more thick and easier to work with.lol

I hope I grey as late as my dad. He is 47 and just now his side burns are turning. The rest is dark brown, thick and shiny. Blah..

25-ish?

I dunno, I like mine because they come in silver instead of gray.

I was 22 . I'm a strawberry color naturally and my greys aren't silver or grey, more like a white and some are damn near see through clear.
