    I can't remember having hair on my head or not having this grey goatee.

    Stress related, found one last year right before I turned 20... My boyfriend found it and pointed it out and laughed, and now I'm laughing at his patches of gray in his beard that appeared randomly... He's 25.

    I have no idea. I've been coloring my hair since high school. And I'm not sure if I have any grey hair yet. I'm not terribly motivated to find out. ;)

    Like, 23. I now have a nice little grey streak in the front that looks like an intentional dye job. Of course, I don't plan to ever dye my hair, I am happy with it no matter how grey it gets.

    I had one single gray hair on my head on my 23rd birthday. I didn't see another for years and years. But now I color my hair so I plan to remain completely and totally oblivious to the number of gray hairs I may or may not have. FOREVER.

    I'm 27 and about 2 months ago I found my first one. It's freaking awesome. I always thought the women in my family looked beautiful with their long wavy grey hair.

    Twenty Four I think. I remembered where I was living then backed into the age. :wink:

    36 or 37, but mine are white too... And now I have a "tuft" of white, right in the front... I dye about every 5 or 6 months, because I hate losing my highlights...

    I first noticed it when I was 18 and was curling my hair for my prom. My hair is probably 25% gray now. I thought it was more, but that's what the hairdresser says. It just looks like highlights until recently, now I cover it with highlights.

    18, but I am still less than 10 percent grey.

    47 and I probably only have one or two. My mother still has none that I've noticed.
