    I am 23, and I just found my first one a few weeks ago. Needless to say, I’m officially old. However, my mom said she started getting grays at around my age, so it is genetic in my family.

    @nearlymarriedlass:  I got my first grey hairs in my early 20’s and I’m over 50% grey now. Im lucky that I have highlights. Need to get it done every 2 months though. My friend was full grey by 26 too 🙁

    @nearlymarriedlass:  I’m 32 and found my first one last year.  At first I thought it was just a lighter strand of hair, I have natural highlights that get lighter in the summer.  Upon closer examination it looked like a white hair so I pulled it out and lo and behold it was a gray hair almost white (sigh).  I’m hoping I won’t just have random gray hairs but that they will grow in a group kind of like Stacy from “What Not to Wear” I’m also hoping I get pretty gray colored hair like Jamie Lee Curtis.

    @nearlymarriedlass:  Um, the first one that I noticed was at 19. But I used to dye my hair a lot before also so it could have started earlier. I always thank my father whenever I find another gray hair! I’ve started dying my hair again since they show up when I have my hair in a ponytail! My brother started at 16.

    I found my first grey hair ( or more accurately, it was pointed out to me by my sister ) at 27. Thanks, sis.

    I saw my first one at 25 then a few more each year after that.  I turn 30 next week and I would say I am 5% grey and the rest of my natural haircolor (medium/dark brown) has lightened slightly.  I have also been dying my hair a few shades darker since I was 26, now I keep it up to hide the greys and lightened hair.

    @nearlymarriedlass:  I noticed some at the crown of my head shortly after I turned 21. No one in my family has gone grey early, but I was at a very stressful time in my life (school, job, and internship) and feel like that probably didn’t help any.

    I’m 25 and have had grey hairs for years!! It sucks. Luckily I have dark brown hair that helps hide them… For now. My moms side of the family all went grey young. I’m just thankful I’m not balding 😉

    I’m 22 and haven’t seen one yet. My sister got her first grey hairs when she was pregnant at 26. My mom and dad have grey hairs, but IDK when that started…

    @NurseMandie:  I think Stacy has had the gray streak in her hair since childhood, but I too wish my getting-old-grays would come in like that!

    I have 2 or 3 strands which I pull out every few months when they grow back in. They started showing up a year or two ago, I am 27 now. I am a pretty low-maintenance person so I am not looking forward to dyeing my hair once they start coming in full-force.

    @nearlymarriedlass:  I am 36 and have yet to find a gray hair. I am dirty blond. However, almost all my friends from highschool have had grays for at least a few years. And I have known people that started graying in their early 20’s.

    I have one that I found on my 26th birthday, of all days! Just the one though (I checked!) lol. When I was a teen I dated a guy who was nearly completely grey- he was 16. He looked very distinguished though! Apparently dark hair goes grey quicker, but I have dark hair and it’s fine (apart from that one damn hair) and my mum was dark and had only a couple of grey hairs when she died at the age of 51. A lady who works with my dad was completely grey by her early twenties, but her hair is like white so it actually looks pretty cool
