I discovered my first grey/gray hair this morning! It was curly! and my hair is dead straight!
But it was still black and straight at the tip, I reckon it's stress related.
What is the normal age for greys to appear? I always thought that going grey was something that old people did.
It certainly can be stress (but not necessarily)- as can hair falling out much more than usual - I was told that this will often happen some weeks after the stress period or incident. I am not sure but I also think hormone changes can trigger hair changes - at least that is what I reckon with me at the moment as my hair is starting to grow back in the bald areas!
"I discovered my first grey/gray hair this morning! It was curly! and my hair is dead straight! "
You sure it was from your head?
There is no certain age. Lack of Vitamin B causes gray hair. Stress burns up Vitamin B.
In my family gray hair does not affect us until the 70s. Sometimes gray hair is inherited. My Greek brother-in-law's brother was gray in his twenties.
Dying your hair will also strip your color and bring gray hair about much faster.
Vitamin B and the Lack of dying your hair is the secret to having your natural color longer.
I frost my hair (Blond Highlights) but have no gray. None of my sisters who are older than me have gray hair.
defiantly no certain age ... my boyfriend is 24 and has a ton of grays lol i dye mine on the regular so don't know if i have any or not but im sure i do
I always had a few strands of grey hair that looked like a stripe since I was 14. People get grey hair at different ages. Maybe try that 10 minute root touch up?
Dame Scribe, I have seen that stripe of grey on a young woman before and have always thought it looks mysterious and beautiful
Ravanelli was a famous Italian soccer player who was renowned for his completely grey crest at the venerable age of 19.
It can happen at any age I believe.
Sorry join the real world now... My dad said he was grey/gray at 18 and bald at 21 OMG I'm really sorry now!!
I knew a girl in high school who had salt & pepper hair with one blue eye and one green eye. I always thought it made her look more interesting than the standards.
Gray hair can start as early as in your twenties, so what do you mean by "old?"
Many people will find they start getting gray hair while in their 30s, and by their 40s, most people have some gray hair.
Of course, with the widespread practice of hair dyeing, you aren't going to know or see this.
Awwwww. It's not so bad. I got my first gray hair in my twenties. Now at 51 I do nothing to cover it. I've had lots of compliments on my hair for letting it go natural. It looks professionally done. Let nature take it's course and you may be surprised. I was.
My hair started turning in my 30's. Four kids of my own and 14 foster kids later, I have lots of grey at 51. I don't mind, I earned it lol.
Franya, my gray hairs curl too while the rest is totally straight. Don't know why. Mine turned gray underneath first, all the top was dark brown but when I pull my hair back, it's all gray. (Except for one stripe down one side)
Sandy, when people told me I'd look twenty years younger without the gray hair, it made no sense to me. Why would I want to look too young to be my own kids' mother?! I did start dying it when my youngest was afraid that gray hair meant I was really old and might die soon
I was bald at one year of age, and the cycle is repeating.
Had a few grey hairs starting in high school. Totally genetic, happened to my mom too. I still get a few here and there, no one really notices but me.
Good Lord, now is the time to act!!!! Get some cool highlights to disguise those little monsters as long as you can. that's how I do it. Everyone goes "is that your natural hair color"...well, normally guys do....and I go "yes, my natural hair color is MULTI, duma$$".
I got a grey hair when I was 4 years old and it must have fell on me when the grannies came for tea...
Ok...so I'm going to tell you a secret..lol Vitamin B12! I started getting gray hair seriously before I was 30, a few here and there, a few stragglers turned into a few more, gradually at my roots around my face...ugh. I spend years literally dying my hair like every other month so they wouldn't show up in my black hair. So, I read that there all these studies that Vitamin B12 can not only prevent gray hair but it can literally REVERSE it sooooo I mean, I'm a sucker and I'll try anything once. I swear 5 months later I have not one gray hair on my head. My mom even tried searching to find one the other day and they are all gone. I'm writing a hub on it right now. It might be worth the couple dollars you spend on a bottle of vitamins to give it a try.
Don't worry Franya...I was born with a patch of white hair. have had it all my life and wear it proudly.
I got my first gray hair when I was 30, it didn't startle me at all with so many hair colors you can be whatever hair color you desire.
The few hairs I have left on my head are now startin to sprout a few grays. But of course I will be 50 this year !
