Are you sure they aren’t just really blond hairs?

I totally thought I was getting gray hair until Darling Husband snapped me back to reality and made me realize they were really really light blond, not gray- haha.

Yep, the wedding made me grow 9 new thick gray hairs. Being pregnant made me grow 3. I’m in my mid-twenties. I’ll probably start coloring my hair in a few years though… 🙁

I had no idea I had gray hair until my stylist pointed it out to me earlier this year.  I promptly dyed my hair blond.  Now you can’t tell as much.  Most people can’t tell at all but I know they are there 🙁

It is very common, don’t worry.  I plan to eventurally “go blonde”- like @jalaa mentioned- it is harder to tell!

A lot of my brunette friends started going gray in their mid to late 20s and they always complained about what a pain it was to keep em’ covered.  I used to be sooo glad I was a natural blonde and I had no grays at all. 

Well, I thought that party was going to last forever but I’m 44 and last week I found the first few at my hairline right above the ear.  Ugh!  I was able to yank them but I’m sure they’ll be back.

But yeah, you can definitely blend them with highlights, which I recommend unless you want to be combing dye over your part every few weeks.

I don’t  know how long I’ve had some grey hair…and mine got worse when my first husband died two years ago.  I dye my hair about twice a year…i’m really lazy to be honest.  I don’t have a lot, and it’s hidden by most of my hair.  But then…i have 4 kids, i’m 31, and saw my husband die in front of my eyes, that’s bound to give you some grey hair, right? Fi has some too, but he keeps his hair short.  I’m not too worried about it now.

It’s totally genetic…I found my first white hairs at 17. I have pretty sensitive skin and am still somehow able to get away with most dyes. I think going to a salon and asking would be the best way to go, but make sure they test the dye on a small patch of skin (I’ve heard the inside of the wrist works well) first to make sure there’s no reaction.

I’m in the same boat.. my mom was totally gray at 26. And I’m 25 now.. eeek. Crossing my fingers my graying is a little more delayed, though I can see quite a few already, as my hair is dark brown. That’s what they make hair dye for, right?!

I’ve been graying since I was 16! My great-grandmother was completely snow white by the time she was 30, so I’m sure that is the route I am also heading! I have to dye my hair all the time. I have super sensitive skin, so I use Clariol Natural Instincts. I’ve never had a problem with it!
