    I started getting greys in my red hair in my early 20s.  I’m 29 now.  I have been highlighting my ever since. haha  Hides them perfect.  Add more light ones and you’ll never see them.

    I was in my early 20’s. I have a really small patch in the front that comes in grey, but I can hide it with my part.

    FOund my first at 21….slowly seeing more.  Now in my mid 30’s, I have to dye my hair every 5 weeks to keep the gray roots at bay!  Eek!  My dad and all of his siblings are white white haired, so I suspected it would come. 

    I had a friend cry recently when she found her first gray at 35…I’m like “shiiiiit”.

    I was probably 20. I color my hair, so I don’t typically find them, but when it’s been a while since a color job they start to come out and I have a LOT!! Like you, probably 50ish. 🙁 It’s really weird! And what stinks the most is that they are all predominantly located right around my part, so it’s really noticeable (to me, anyway)! Others think I’m crazy when I talk about needing to “color my grays,” but it’s a legit problem!

    Late 20s (think I was 28)

    Lol, now that I am over 50 it is a wonder if I can find one that has my “original” colour and not my dyed colour (natural tho now would be mostly grey)

    Mine are white not grey…I dont know which is worse. But I noticed them a few years ago at 27. My hair is very dark brown so they can be noticeable and I pull them out regardless of the old wives tale that says 3 more grow in its place lol

    I am 44 and haven’t found any yet, but I’m really blonde so they are probably hiding in there! my dad always jokes “I’m not gray I’m blonde” haha

    My first was at 15 or 16, and I’m now at least 20-30% grey at 21. Mine are very shiny silver.

    You need a younger option. I had mine at 4 years old. Apparently I was a stressed toddler. I have one or two that constantly reappear, but that’s it so far. I’m 25.
