I hilight my dark hair to help the gray ones blend a little better. My Mom was 100% grey by 39, so I am scared of what I may be in for.

I pull them out. I only get one every great once in a while though, so it’s not like I’ll have a bald patch by doing so.

I embrace them! I only have a small number but I just leave them be. I tell people that I named them Ms. Lucious and she has sprouted sisters…

Pull them.  I’ve been foiling for years (I’m 27 now) and then decided I was tired of it and colored my hair natural which is brown, probably chestnut.  It started to grow out and I saw what could be blonde hairs but maybe grey.  Just a few of them and I left them so I could see later if blonde.

Well I’m at a BBQ sitting with my sister and a few family and friends with my hair up and my sister turns to me and asks “are those grey hairs?!”  I asked her why she would say that in front of everyone and then I BURST into tears.  I guess I’m not ready. πŸ™‚  I don’t think I will color later (too much maintence) but I don’t like how it goes so slowly.  Men have it so much easier.

I am 42 now but starting going grey at 16. I dye them.

Now they start showing up after only one week of getting them dyed. :/

I sometimes think about growing them out but at 42 it just doesn’t feel like time yet. Maybe at 52 LOL

My poor 13 year old daughter is starting to get one or two here and there. She and I just pull them out for now. They are not visable to anyone else. I sometimes find them when I help her straighten her hair.

I started going grey at 16 as well.  I’m 26 now and have only been dying because of the wedding, but afterwards I’m going to embrace it by doing the rogue stripe.  I’m pretty excited about it, haha.  Therefore, I’m pretty excited about embracing it?

I’m 40 and have them bad. I used to pull them out until my hairstylist yelled at me. I left them for a long time but they’re coarse, curly and out of control so I finally got my hair highlighted and they all blend in now..love it.

Aside: Can you go gray if you have very blonde hair? Gray is the absence of a darker color, what if the color is blonde?

I have grey and I’m only 22!  Ugh, I think a nutritional deficiency is the cause of mine since I have other issues that can lead to that but yeah, I’m not sure what to do.  I don’t want to damage my hair with dyes but at the same time, what the heck, I’m ONLY 22!

For now, I’m just keeping them the way they are…

@boombacha: I’m 22 and I dye my hair red so I don’t know if I’ll even notice when they start coming in. So far the plan is to just keep dying it the colour I do now just because I like it. Maybe eventually I’ll go back to my natural blonde and embrace the greys, but it won’t be until I’m much older!

@lefeymw: I believe they’re a different coarseness, but yes, as far as I know you can.
