I quit going gray a few years ago. 43 years old and a nice head of gray hair and I don't give a shit.

I wish it would fall out so I could quit cutting it.

I have discovered this week that I don't need any face camo when I'm wearing my Realtree Snow Camo suit, the beard is perfect camouflage.

I've had a quarter sized spot of gray ever since I was a child. The rest of it is on it's way and I'm only 27.

My beard is almost completely gray.  Other than that, I have a full head of dark brown to black hair.  

My brothers are balding and receding.  They make fun of my gray and I simply say "I'd rather have traitors than deserters."  


I'm using that line!

I'm 26 and am going gray on the sides. I embrace it mostly.

The wife on the other hand found a single gray pubs a few months back. I still don't think she is over it.

My mom was almost totally gray by her mid-thirties and so my younger brother has followed, too. He's 40 and mostly gray. I'm forty-one and have a head full of black hair, and only the same three or four white hairs growing in the back that have been there since I was a teenager.

I'm adopted, so I'm not sure if this messes up the survey or not.

I'm 31 and I'm turning a pretty decent shade of salt and pepper already. Had white/gray hairs since I was a teenager.Most of my hair is still brownish. My beard has started to go more gray now though with more white and gray hairs popping up. My facial hair is brown and red otherwise.

"The first onset of gray hair and the speed at which people go gray
varies considerably from person to person. Most people actually start
going gray in their late 20s but they don't notice it immediately.
Premature graying is defined as gray hair onset before late teens for
Caucasians and before age 30 in Africans and Asians, or alternatively
50% or more gray scalp hair before age 50.






The time and speed of gray hair onset is due in part to genetics, and early onset gray hair development can run in families.





Incidence; Causes & Development


Very occasionally, a few gray hairs can develop in children as young as 8
years and yet it indicates nothing other than an early onset of the
gray hair that we all develop with increasing age. Typical gray hair
first develops at age 34.2 +/- 9.6 years in Caucasians while for Black
people the average age of onset is 43.9 +/-10.3 years [Keogh 1965]. As a rough guide, 50% of the population in the US and Europe have 50% gray hair by age 50.





Gray hair is caused by the gradual reduction of melanin
production over time within the affected hair follicle. The melanocytes
in the hair follicles produce less and less melanin, and the result is a
loss of hair fiber color strength. What we call gray hair is not gray
at all if you look at the individual hair fibers. Some hair fibers will
contain some color while others are virtually white. What we describe as
gray comes about from our perception of the overall scalp hair color.
Blondes are most likely to develop a completely white head of hair in
old age because their hair fiber has a very low density of pigment in it
to start with.





Signs & Symptoms


The most common areas on the scalp in which to first see gray hair
development are above the ears and/or at the temples. This first gray
hair may spread around the sides and to the crown with time. Gray hair
development in the beard and mustache may also start quite early, while
gray hair on the chest and pubic region generally only occurs some years
after onset of gray hair on the scalp."
