Before you go off saying, "Oh you're still a young pup", I know. But, to me, this is not something I was looking forward to. I was at my lunch break at work, I lay my head down for a moment, and then my lunch mate said, "You're hair is turning gray."

I thought he was joking, until I took a picture of my head with my camera phone. I do in fact have a few gray/white strands of hair. In my brown hair, hide a few strands of gray.

*sigh* I'm 28 last week, and now I'm turning gray. This really breaks my heart. :(

My feeling is let my head turn gray. I've got dark hair and I'm starting to see light streaks in my goatee. Then again my hair doesn't matter much since I keep it shaved off most of the time. I consider it building up wisdom. :D And I'm 35.

You are young, however getting old is not something to get upset about. Take it head on and be proud of who you are! We can grow old and grey but we do not have to feel old. I am 39 and have a few grey ghosts hiding on my head. Sometimes I can really feel my age, but most of the time I feel fit and vibrant. It is what we show that people will see, and not our true age. Take it in stride and see every grey hair as a badge of honor.

Getting old is just a fact of life. So keep this in mind - growing old is not an option. Growing up is. ;)

Diddums. Here's a tiny violin. I've had grey hair since I was 14. I'm now 26 and have so much more. If it's that big a deal, be thankful this is what you consider a problem.

You see... to become older is a sign of wisdom ! So don't be unhappy about it :)

As I've gotten older I think I've gotten wiser. Or is that me becoming more of a wise........ :P

You can grow wiser on body part at a time! :)

Sometimes things like this (hair turning grey early) may run in family histories and lineages and therefore may make it a little more acceptable to you or ease your pain a bit. If it really upsets you, there are options to get rid of the gray such as hair dye, etc., that you could look into, although that is a pretty drastic step I think as I have never used dye on my hair and think it is much more healthier because of it. It could also be because a cousin of mine dyed her hair so much it turned orange once and this was way before orange hair was in style, lol. I also have a few gray hairs (and more on the way probably) and I refuse to use color or hide them in any way. I think gray hairs can be a distinguishing look to some extent. Also think the above posts from everyone contain some great advice too regarding the wisdom aspect, etc. Although I do understand and sympathize with your pain, Don't be heartbroken, but be happy and glad that you are alive and healthy and still have your hair no matter what color it is. :)

To put your mind at rest, my hair are starting to turn grey too ! Yes, I'm now 37 but luckily those grey/white hairs have started to appear only late ! And as I'm often taken for someone who is 10 years youger than my real age !
Silver-Surfer : Well said ! Hair color may be important for some people but what matters us what you have in your heart...and only a few people can really "knows" it ! :)
