Anyone else in this situation? What are you planning to to about it?

Disturbingly, this doesn't seem particuarly uncommon. Once it progresses beyond a few hairs at the back of my head, i'm buying dye though... screw being grey before i'm 60.

Yeah, that's about it. Just curiosity I guess...

I cannot say that I have ever had gray hair, but my father had to deal with it at a young age. To dye it to its original brown/brunette color, my father used to make a sort of mixture that I believe had some baking soda and some other substance in it. However, I doubt you would want to do that; the whole procedure just sounds rather messy...

Are you thinking about trying to get rid of your gray hair? If so, there are a bunch of options and several products that you could use that get rid of gray hair. You could always go to your nearest grocery store, like Smith's or Von's, and pick up some items in the woman's department that deal with dyeing you hair. Here's another thing that I just found that you might find useful:

www.no-gray-hair.com

From what I saw, they have a variety of products that could help you get rid of some of those gray hairs. Good luck with whatever you decide to do. : )

yep. I'm 18, and have a few grey hairs. My mother found them and told me all her male siblings had grey hair at a young age. I think it's cool. I'll look like Dante from 'Devil May Cry' in no time.

I've got quite a few grey strands. My mom says her hair was totally silver (not grey) by 28 plus one of her brothers went totally gray around 36 or so. Don't worry though, grey haired people can still be awesome, just look at steve martin in the 70's.

I started getting grey hairs at 16. Can't do much about it, I guess, and I don't particularly mind.

Will be mostly/completely grey by the time I'm 30. *shrug*

george clooney went grey at a young age, so tackle this issue like george clooney would. Even though he's only 3 years older than brad pitt, he rocks himself a pretty sweet salt and pepper doo.

It could be worse, though. I have a friend who started balding at 15. By 18 he was completely bald.

Nope. Not one gray hair here. Not that I'd mind it though. My hair is dyed most of the time. Mostly because I've got the most boring dirty blond-colored hair imaginable. Being naturally gray or white would be an improvement for me.

Also, having just a gray patch of hair is hot. Just saying.

I'm not gonna mind if they start showing up on my head.

It's the pubes that will worry me . . . .

Well, I'm (very slowly) starting to go bald right now. By 24 I most likely am bald.

I'm dark blond, so it'd be hard to spot any grey hair. Not too long ago I thought I had spotted some grey strangs of hair, but that may have just been the lighting becaue I never saw those again.
The hair on top of my head in the middle is slowly getting thinner. However, as opposed to Lukie or Marty, I'm already beyond 30...and still am not bald or grey! :tongueout:

:bunny:I had a friend (Paul) who started going grey at 12 (genetic) he was completely grey by 18. Fortunately I was 30 before I started to notice grey (In my beard). Still have very little grey and almost no hair loss even at 55!:bunny:

I started going gray at 20, though it doesn't look so much gray as white. I figure you're supposed to go gray before it turns white, but... I dunno. For me, early graying is genetic; my grandmother started going gray in her early 20's; her mother had a full head of stark-white hair, very cool looking, by 60; and her grandmother had a head full of gray hair before the age of 16 (?!--but that's what I was told).

*shrug* I don't mind. White hairs are kinda funny--they're more wiry and coarse than regular hair for some reason. My regular hair is wild as it is when it grows longer, but the white hairs stick straight out from my head. I could definitely see myself rocking some wild white Einstein hair eventually.

I've been dying my hair since I was 15, because of gray. Gray doesn't look great on a young woman, such as myself, but looks hot on a man. Leave it be.

I started getting a grey patch at 13, right in front, when my hair was long it was a stripe that ran right from my forehead, and you don't want to know about 60, well if you do I am just about totaly white, and have been for at least 10 years.

I started having my hair dyed in my mid 20's but it looked so fake I stopped, but now I might have it dyed again but I'm going blond, I think, dk brown, almost black was my original color.

The only thing I can recommend to you younger guys is to make sure whatever you do DO NOT use bar soap or anyother kind of plain soap on your hair, If you can buy the best shampoo you can afford and use conditioner.

I have 3 brothers 2 older 1 younger, who never used shampoo, just soap, well lets just say, I have hair, lots of it, and they don't.
