My first grey hair.

Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
I thought I had found my first grey hair (or two) this morning, just above my forehead. I pulled one of them out just to be sure, and its true, I'm going grey (well the beginings of it anyway)

The worst bit is that one of the lads has pointed out, and also taken a picture of the back of my head, and there are loads more grey hairs back there.

I had my hair cut/shaved to a grade one about a couple of months ago, my hair generally grows quite fast (especially in the sun), so I think it has deffo happened since I have been out here, and relatively recently I guess.

I dont even think there is a question to this post/thread, I just wanted to rant about my hair in an appropriate place. Im only a month or two away from my 26th :(

    It's your impending parenthood doing it.

    As I point out to my kids and wife - I didn't have any grey hairs before they came into my life :)

    Ive been finding the odd white hair since I was about 16, but I've only ever had a few. I did pluck out a random grey hair from my eyebrow the other day though. I'm only 21! :confused:

    my first grey hair came in at 24.....used to think the idea of a quarter-life crisis was a joke, now i'm 25 and realise it really isn't.

    Wait for the first grey pube and/or 40th guys.

    Fortunately only one has happened to me so far... I dread the other :nervous:

    Are grey hairs caused by stress? I found my first one at 12 :-\ only had 2!

    No doubt it plays a part but as with just about everything its a combination of factors. Stress probably triggers a genetic predisposition at an early age, that would be my guess without looking into the exact science of going grey.

    At least you're going grey and not WHITE!!! I found my first white hair a year ago when i was 24, actually my husbands cousin found it while we were out for breakfast one day. I refuse to pull it out, instead i keep it super short so it wont show and to top it off i have named it after the person i could swear gave me the stress that made it.

    My very lovely Chemistry Teacher at school told us that she went grey at 14 and was almost entirely grey by the time she left school.
