    Just curious. I think my mom started going gray around 35 and that's not too far off for me. For those of you gorgeous grays, what age did you start turning gray (if you don't mind me asking)? How long did it take for the gray to take over?

    I got my first silver hairs when I was 17 and 10-ish years later I'm still not even at the half-way point.

    My hair is pretty light in color, so I didn't notice until I was in my mid-40s. By then, I had a lot of silvery hairs, some white ones, too.

    I'm not gray yet.. but my grandmother on my dad's side started going gray at 25-ish and was fully gray by 30. Her mom and sister were also fully silver-headed by 30.

    My DH had ton's of gray hair when he was 23, now his hair is mostly gray at 34. I'm 29 and I have a few hair's that are making the transition, they are multi-colored hairs lol. I have friend is my age range that have virgin hair and a bunch of grays too. I've always wondered what the age range is too, but it's hard to figure out since it seems like most people dye thier hair. My kids have a couple gray's too, so who knows?

    I found some at 19, and at 36, I have some pretty substantial streaks, though they don't show up too well in photos.

    I;m not gray but my boyfriend went gray at about 20. He's 30 now and I love his thick head of silver hair. Finally talked him into growing it out again, he has such a striking look. Definitely drew me to him.

    I noticed my first whites few years ago, when I grew out henna. I am almost 35 now. I don't have many of them, though, they do not seem to multiply very fast. I like them a lot, and hope some day I'd have a head full of white hair, like my grandfather!

    I'm not fully grey (far from it, really), but my mother started going grey at 19, and I started at 20. I'm 25 now, and you can definitely tell that I'm already turning... Silvery threads everywhere!

    I started having white hairs a year ago. Now I got about 6 of them. It started with one. Im not bothered by it at all. My friends have noticed and even plucked them off but I like them.
    As the saying goes, it pays to be patient!
