Have You Found Your First Gray Hair Yet?

I found my first gray at the age of 24. It was pretty exciting, so much so that I snipped it and saved it in my journal. (Dorky, I know.) So far, there haven't been too many more grays, but I don't think about it much one way or the other. Have you found your first gray yet? And if so, what was your reaction?

Found my first gray hair when I was about 12 or so. It kinda runs early in my fmaily on my father's side, so yeah. I'm 26 now, and I have like, 4 or 5 more strands by now. Hate it!

I found mine at 24 too!! I freaked out cuz it was so long and I never noticed it until I was drying my hair one day. It was kinda cool. I tried to save it to but since moving out of my apt, can't really figure out what i did with it!

I personally haven't found one but the lady at the hair salon claims I have one grey hair. Meep. (I'm 22, almost 23). Getting old scares me.

Yes. I found my first gray hair at - i kid you not - 16. Since then about 15-20% of my hairs (brown) have been gray. And i am only 26! The gray hairs are thick and can be seen clearly because my other hairs are darker. :(

I have about 6 near one temple... and when I have my hair in a ponytail you can really see them... so when I noticed about 6 monts ago, I got hairdye and now I dye it regularly. I don't think I'd think as much about it if I wasn't around people 6 to more years younger then me, I don't like being seen as the eldest, so I do everything in my power to stay as young as them ;)

yuP, yuP, yuP.! About a few weeks ago my mother was trimming my ends... (21 btw) she saw two strands or gray hair. I freaked out. I kinda shed a tear... but I got over it. Never say never. haha...

I found my first (and ONLY) gray hair at 21 - I'm 22 now. I'm pretty sure that it came from 8 years of stress from high school and college, lol. Except - try as I might, I *can't* pull it out. Like I physically can't. So that worries me. And it's in an awkward place on my head. Hope I don't get any more!

You saved it in your journal? That's priceless! I found mine reeeally early too. I think it has something to do with the fact that my hair is quite dark, so the gray is more noticeable.

Sometimes I get white eyelashes but thats about it. I'm 19 though and dye my hair, so I may find one when I redo my roots, or I may not.
