    I think I was around 21-22 when I found my first one. It sucked. Yanked them out. Was safe for another five years or so, and now they’re coming in fast & furious (at the ripe old age of almost 31). sigh.

    Ok, so I am 32, and I don’t have any grey hair at all….HOWEVER….it is thinning…BADLY…..so yea, you all win!!!!!!!!!  You will have lovely grey hair while I am bald!  🙂

    Ok, slight exaggeration…but still thinning!

    No greys yet!  I’m 25 now.  My mom was mostly grey by 30, and my dad went bald but not grey.  Not sure what will happen to me, but I’d rather be grey than bald.  Fiance is thinning a lot and will probably need to shave his head by 30 due to the thinning, but he has no greys.

    Im 26 and found my first one two months ago…it wasnt even a whole grey hair it was just half of it…but it still freaked me out!!!

    The thing is..im a redhead with a very distinct shade of red to my hair…so if i start dyeing my hair….I will probably have to dye all of it…and it will never be the same shade of red as my natural hair 🙁

    Here is a pic of me on the right with my hair down

    6th grade! My friend noticed and I thought it was a joke! We have premature gray in my family! I have a light patch in the front of my hair and I’m 24! A PATCH!

    I’m 27 and my friends all have a few.  So far, I can’t find any.  Must be the light coloured hair advantage.  Knock on wood.

    I’m 57, and so far haven’t found any.  Yeah, my friends hate me for this.  Even my 28-year-old son has found that he has a few!

    The bizarre thing is that I have always had a couple. Always. Even when I was a kid. When I found them I’d just yoink them out. Now when I see them I freak out because I think oh no, here it comes, I’m starting to go gray! But it’s still just those same couple of hairs!

    I’m crossing my fingers that I still have a few years left of non-grey hair. My parents both went really grey in their 30’s and I’m already 27, so I’m scared! I love my natural haircolor too, and I don’t want the hassle of dying it!

    @Ms.Teddy: Your hair is so gorgeous!! I’ll be sad too if you start dying your hair!

    None yet! My parents’ hair started to turn in their mid-forties, but I like to think that’s from having five kids. 😛

    I found my first gray hair at 21.  I find them all the time now (26).  I used to pull them out, but I can’t do that otherwise I’d be lacking some serious hair.  Thank goodness it is hard to see due to my hair color!
