Interesting topic. In my 30s now and have no gray. That's because due to natural color it would probably be silver instead of gray but I can't see it anyway. If I could it'd probably would have showed around age 26-28 due to stress at that time.

My first grey hair was when i was 18, and i got buried down the mine. I thought my time had come but i was dug out.
The next day my hair was grey at the temples, and at the age of 29 i was totally grey, i'm 59 now, 60 on new years eve.
A year later when i was 19 i got buried in the same roadway, at more or less the same spot, and i was dug out again LOL.

Definitely, that early age start for you is screaming genetics. On the other hand, my pattern might be genetics, a latent, recessive gene, or my environmental factors.

I will be glad if i had all my hairs intact at that age, i guess greying is not bad as balding.

Are you sure this shouldn't be posted in the "Gray Area" forum . .? .. ..


Anyways, I started seeing grey hairs when I was in my mid 30's.

Some say it is because of stress and some say it is because of various other factors.

I tend to believe the stress explanation.

I went to Basic Training with a guy in the 80's. He had completely dark brown hair. By the end of AIT he still had dark hair except for a 50-CENT piece sized patch on the back of the right side of his head. The patch is almost perfectly round. To this day that is the only grey hair on his head. He is nearly 50.

Maybe stress, .. maybe not.

so lucky..my kids love calling me "old man" because of my grey hair...oddly enough when I add hair gel to it it seems to make the grey lessen...not sure because it's shiny it helps the grey blend in better but definitely makes a huge difference and any hair gel will do....

Around the age of 16 I first noticed the occasional snow-white hair-then a few months later,I'd find another.And through the years they just snuck up
but women color their hair,so do some men,so it's not a problem.Wrinkles would be more of a problem,luckily I had oily skin all my life+that seems to have kept the creases at bay though.I've seen some really stunning-looking folks of both genders with a full head(and beard sometimes) of grey-beauty is not dependent on youth-its just that society have been conditioned to equate beauty with youth+bling.

I'm still awaiting my first grey pubic hair

I think I first started turning grey at about 35 and cut my hair short to hide it, oh the vanity.

But as long as it all works and she's still happy

No worries

You should only wash your hair every other day or two. All shampoos remove the natural oils which protect your hair from the elements, some shampoos are worse than others too. If you wash every other day your hair will be and look healthier. It'll have its natural luster and be softer and stronger than washing and conditioning daily. I learned that when I went to barbers school when I was younger, had been washing and conditioning daily since I was a child. I stopped for a month and noticed a remarkable difference now as I've gotten older I've gone to washing every two days and conditioning only once a week if I don't get anything in my hair besides sweat. Sweat I just rinse out with cool water after exercising and then the warm water in the shower.

23 here, my friend at the time was a qualified hairdresser and found it...she had a good old laugh about it too!

I'm 35 now, I have a few more, but after two kids, I'm not looking too bad.

As they are just the odd hair here and there, plus my hair is thick and long, which I think helps to hide it, I'm not too bothered.

Just going to rock the look, whilst claiming its not grey, its multi-tonal!

I got my first grey head hair at age 16 and a half, my first grey beard hair at age 25, and my first grey belly/chest hair at age 27. I am not going to detail any other hair cultivating locations and the hue of thier current output.

I will say that people often have a few greys they didnt know about, well before they spot the one they freak out about. That said, I am fairly happy with having grey hairs in my head. I bear the marks that life leaves upon me with pride, every grey hair is like a ring in a tree. They are my history, my triumphs and defeats, my anger and my joy, my agony and my relief. When I go totally grey, I am going to buy myself a totally white suit, and change my name to Silvermane!

My hair is too oily, i need to wash it at least 2x a day...i hate that feeling of oily hair... now summer is here, i guess the washing is just going to increase with sweat.

Maybe i should research into some good shampoos that does not harm too much.

Some of us even find balding men attractive.
