How Much Do You Know About Gray Hair?

Perhaps you've found your first gray hair — or you already have a head full of them. Many women begin to spot gray hairs around age 30, but others start becoming silver foxes as early as their teens or as late as their forties. Think you know all there is to say about gray? Take this quiz to find out.


How Much Do You Know About Gray Hair?

True or false? Stress is a definite cause of gray hair.

1/5. I answered true for the second question because a few months ago I was attacked and stabbed at work and the next morning when I parted my hair I had between 20-30 gray hairs that weren't there the day before.

I'm in my twenties and have quite a few whites (!) coming in already. but I like to think of them as aging highlights, no bleach required!!

I'm 21 and I have too many gray hairs! They tend to grow in certain areas. It sucks. If I go looking for one, I'll be able to find several, for sure.

I let my hair go grey. I guess that's why I had no clue as to when dye for the stuff was invented!

Both my parents have grey streaks. I'm naturally blonde and have had a few grey hairs mixed in as long as I can remember. I'm not too concerned. My MIL has the most gorgeous naturally silver hair, people always think she dyes it!

Frankly, as long as I have hair, I don't care about getting gray hairs. I'd be far more concerned about thinning hair.

I'm graying early, too. It runs in my family. I have an uncle and cousin who were completely gray by their late 30's. I'm heading in that direction. Personally, I don't mind. My hair is thick, healthy, and growing like a weed (I'm growing out my hair). My sister-in-law says my grays are pretty.

The women in my family have gorgeous shiny silver hair. The underneath layers of my hair are about 75% gray now, at 44, and my stylist says it looks great, so I may be one of the few women here who wishes it would gray faster!

0/5 - and I started getting grey hairs in my early 20s. Wish someone had told me about the smoking effect THEN since I was smoking a pack a it fair to say I can blame EVERYTHING bad on smoking?

I found my first gray hair when I was maybe 15 and yanked it out, it was really thick and wiry. A few years later it came back! Same spot and everything, and I yanked it again. It was pure white, not gray though. Haven't seen it since but I won't be scared when it does, my great grandmother (whom we nicknamed 'blanca') had a full head of white hair by the time she was in her early 20s. It was a very odd thing, but it looked really lovely on her. My dad also went bald by his early 20s so I guess it's a family thing.

what was the story about the woman who was sentenced to hanging and overnight while waiting for her execution, her hair turned white with shock and they let her go because they could not recognize her? I doubt its a true story but it totally threw me off in #2!
