    I'm 24 and I've started to go grey, WTF.
    TBH I probably wouldn't have ever noticed it, but my mum was fussing (as they do) with my hair (trying to find more grey I assume) and she said I have a grey patch.
    I was expecting another 15-20 years before this started.

    Contrary to popular belief, that will get you mad trim. Women generally think age = money.

    I know a 15 year old who has lot's of grey hair. I think it's mainly due to genetics.

    pwned... I know a few people that started going grey around 20-22 and others that have started going bald as well. I've still got all of my long golden locks though so I'm happy [​IMG]

    btw, I don't really have long golden locks... more browny-blonde streaky hair that is semi long

    you can always dye your hair, if you want OR get twisers and pull them.
    hmm.... that grey hair reminds of one certain presenter(apparently he started to go grey at the age of 16) on GMTV (UK Channel)

    im 24, noticed my first grey around 21...i have more now, but not alot. Its probably a genetic trait brought on by stress. It does make you feel old..at least the hairline isnt headed backwards....yet.

    Well, it's said that gray hair doesn't fall that easily.

    Mine started going when I was 18 and slowly went along the sides, now it's also through the top. It's more of a spray of anything as it's mostly still the original color. Honestly I don't see any reason to dye it or get all cranky over it and never have. Baldness I'd get upset about, but not going gray at all.

    AFAIK baldness isn't in my family, but all I have as a reference point is my dad.
    I will try and take PapiChulo outlook to this [​IMG].

    It's just another step towards manliness.

    You can spell it grey or gray. Ever heard of British way and American way? Like colour and color?

    Grey became the established British spelling in the 20th century, pace Dr. Johnson and others,[89] and is but a minor variant in American English, according to dictionaries. Canadians tend to prefer grey. Non-cognate greyhound is never grayhound.

    I think that all those things about like greying hair is cuz of stress and eating greasy stuff gives you pimples are all bull. Grey hair is like just age and/or genetics; pimples happen cuz you don't wash your face everyday and all that sweat is in your skin. My opinion, anyways.

    lol, says in the Bible that you should wear your gray hair as a crown (shows that you're wise)...

    believe that if you like, but you're growing old! [​IMG]
