    I was definitely under 20 when I found my first and really fought the majority of it for a really really long time but now there’s TONS of it (I’m 34). If I let it go you can see it but only if you’ve been chatting with me for a while. Nothing too major.

    Hahaha my friend spotted my first (at least first in a visible spot) the summer I turned 17. Devastated was not even in it!

    I’m 32 now and i have loads of greys. I mean Loads – all evenly distributed across the top of my head. I’ve none on the back of my head, south of the ear line, if you know what I mean. So unfair. A white streak could be cool, but mine are nice and neatly spread out!

    There is one upside – my hair is basically very dark brown, and the grey means, as my complexion changes, I’ll ve able to dye my hair a lot lighter than I could before. I’ll be blonde by 40!! Hahaha!!

    Don’t stress about it, chick, be worse if it was fallin out! That’s what my Fiance says when I moan, cos he just wishes he still had a full head of hair!

    I’ve had white hairs since before high school, maybe even middle school.  ๐Ÿ™  I have black hair, too, so it really stands out. It probably runs in the family but I also think it’s related to stress.

    I just got mine colored today to cover the grays for the wedding!  I started finding them in my early 20s and they just keep coming…

    I was 16 when I found my first few.

    But I wasn’t surprised I would find grays early. My mom was totally gray by 30.

    I found my first grey hair exactly on my 20th birthday. That made me feel like I was getting really old. I wasn’t a teen any more & it was on th day that I officially get older.

    I found my first at 24!   It’s terrible.  I remember literally like shaking.  Okay, that’s a bit overboard…but still, I was so sad.

    I was probably 15 or 16.   Not surprised by it at all.   My dad’s whole family turned Silver before any of them got out of high school.    My brother is 34 and 90% Silver now.   I have a major streak of all white next to my temple.  It looks like Rogue’s streak from X-men.

    I am glad to find this post- I am 26 and have two gray hairs.  ๐Ÿ™  I think they started at 25, I used to pull them, now… whatever.  I think blondes have it easier because they seem to blend it.  (My blonde sister seems to be amazed I have some)

    I don’t have any yet, but my husband has quite a few at 26. They started popping up around 19 or so. He says he doesn’t care how gray he is, as long as he has hair.

    I think I found my first one when I was a freshman in college so that would be at 18.  And now… well, I have a ton :-/  I get self-conscious about it sometimes but there isn’t really anything I can do about it beyond dye my hair (which I already do). 

    My mom started going grey at a young age but even she wasn’t as young as I was.  I am thankful that the grey hairs I do have are more bright silver than white (at least so far).  I kinda think I might like all of my hair to look like that… Just not for another 25 years or so ๐Ÿ˜›
