Kate- Though it feels like that, I believe that is an old wives tale.  No scientific evidence to back it up! (thank god)

My hair is SOOO thin (and I lost like 25 percent of it last year during peak wedding stress!  SO GROSS) I cant afford to pluck errant grey hairs!  Thank god for hair dye 🙂

You girls are so lucky. I started getting gray hair when I was 17 and it’s increased since then. I’m about to turn 23 and consistently have gray hair on the underside of my hair…recently they’ve started sprouting at the crown of my head which is more problematic. It’s genetics. Both of my great-grandmothers were entirely gray by the time they were 30…Fiance finds this enchanting and hilarious, while it makes me clutch my boxes of hair dye and bemoan my fate. Eep! You better believe I have stock in Honey Golden Brown #28! 🙂

Just try not to keep going back to check for more… i did (after finding the first one a week before turning 25) and now I am finding them all the time.

 Thank goodness for hair dye!

@doctorgirl:  I’m with you on the plucking!  It’s manageable now.  I’ll have to stop once the grays come close to outnumbering the black ones.  :o)

I’ve never colored my hair and don’t plan to start anytime soon.

I got my first few around 22. I got a couple more since then but I notice my friends are getting their first greys now and they are getting quite a few all at once and mine have not really increased.

I have a big ol’ patch right in the front of my head. They have developed over the past few years, and I am 25. I have very dark hair, so they’re noticeable. I pulled a bunch out for the wedding but now they’re back!

I tell myself I have hair like Stacy London on What Not to Wear (except that her hair is straight), who has had her front-and-center grey streak since the age of 11, and then I feel better about it. Apparently she has a contract with Pantene Pro-V and in it it says they are not allowed to dye it.

I have had grey hairs since I was about 18.  I am 25 now and more and more keep popping up.  They are pretty noticable at times, but by the way I part my hair, they get covered up by the most part.

my best friend has had a patch of grey hairs near the bottom of her hear line for as long as I can remember (since she was 16), its not noticable unless you look for them and seperate them out. I like to search them out and braid all the grey hairs together ha ha ha she hates it! she also has grey hairs in her eyelashes…shes just an odd one

As for me, no grey hairs as of yet! fingers crossed!

I’ve had gray hairs since high school. Lucky for me they are under my part and can’t be seen unless I pull my hair into a ponytail. I don’t think its very uncommon for women with dark or darker hair to have them very early.

if i were to pluck all the grey I had I’d be bald!! I started seeing grey at about 25. I tried to pull a few even though they say you get twice as much if you pluck them. Well am 32 now and I have to dye my hair every 4 weeks!!! YIKES. It is very frustrating!

I’ve had a few – literally a few, like three, and I ripped those suckers right out. My fiance is completely salt & pepper though. I have never seen him without grey hair!
