How old were you when you noticed your first grey?

Anyone else out there getting increasingly alarmed at the amount of greys they're getting?

Ok, so I probably noticed my first before I was 20, but it was a one off. If I found another, it would probably be 6 months later. I'd pull it out, be a little concerned, but then that would be it, for possibly another 6 months, or more.

I'm 29 and recently, I'd say over the past 4 months or so, I've noticed I'm getting much more. As soon as I've pulled one out, another one or two pop up and it's really noticeable against my very dark brown, almost black, hair.

I know there are more important things to worry about grin, but just wondered if late/end 20's is a common age to start going grey.

I hate the thought of having to dye my hair regularly from now on. My hair is buggered as it is and adding dye would probably just cause it to give up and break off.

So how old were you?....

23, I'm very dark and now about 30% grey.

DD has had one long grey hair at the side since she was 6 - poor child

When I was about 39 I think, I only have the odd one still a couple of years later.

I turned 30 this month and found a bright white one at the weekend. Hoping it was a one off confused
