    as my dad is found of telling anyone who gives him a hard time about his grays, better turning gray than turning loose.

    I only have a handul of gray hairs on my scalp but half of my beard is now white. I actually like it, not sure why.

    If I remember right going gray can be accelerated by a lack of certain vitamins and trace minerals. Other than that it isn't a big deal. Oh yeah, worrying about it makes it worse too.

    Ugh one year later I seem to have more, maybe its because of the job. Gray hair doesnt lead to baldness though right? I have really thick hair and i seem to shed alot but I still have a ton of hair on my head.

    If you do dye, go lighter as you get older. Unless you're Nick Cave.

    Anyone else have it? My friends started noticing at age 15 or so and its gotten worse ever since. Its not terrible as my head isn't white but you do notice if you stare at my head, dont notice if you dont really concentrate on it. Nevertheless, its pretty shitty that I'm starting to go grey at the tender age of 20.

    Gotten worse?

    I envy him. I've wanted white hair for as long as I can remember.

    Haha. Funny typo.

    As an aside, if a guy is over 40 and is trying to dye over the grey, it always looks weird and obvious. The youthful color doesn't match the wrinkly face. In fact, it looks...

    guys seriously dye their gray hairs? just for men gel?

    i've had like 5 white hairs at the back of my head since i was 12. i assume it's because of lack of pigmentation, and not all of those repressed traumatic childhood memories...

    How about Burt Reynolds in Boogie Nights? I hope you've got the '70s threads, chest hair and C3 Corvette/Porsche 928 to complete the look.

    No sign of any grey on my head, but like FLMM I'm getting loads in my beard. That its started about the same age my mum got her first greys suggests it could be genetic.

    I wish I had salt and pepper hair. I think it looks great. Unfortunately my hair is very light already so if it did start going grey it probably wouldnt even make that much of a difference.

    I'm 32 and have had a few greys since I was 20. They haven't spread. My brother went salt&pepper at 16 and he hasn't changed much in 18 years. This is true for most people I know. You'll stabilize and be fine. No Anderson Cooper for you.
