Gray Hair... - January 29th 2010, 01:36 PM

I find one on my head every couple months, and I pluck it out. Could this be because of all the stress, or is it just genetics saying its my time already?

I would really like a few more years before I look like an old lady

It could be a combination of the two. I think gray hair is beautiful, but if you don't like it you can just dye it.

my mum started going grey before her mid twenties so i think it can just be genetics.. not sure about stress and how much that would contribute towards it, but it makes sense.

I actually heard once that stress is one of the main reasons why people go grey in the first place.

I've had a couple gray hairs before. I read something about them being caused by stressed before, but yes. It could also be genetics, or a combination of the two. It depends on your age.

My greys started popping in like crazy since my daughter was born 5 months ago, and even more since I started having a falling out with my parents as I moved away with my husband and daughter... my vote is for stress.

I've had grey/white hair in my bangs for a pretty long time. Since I was younger. It doens't bother me, and It's normal for someone to get a grey hair every now and then.

Do you know that girl from What Not To Wear? She has a streak of grey hair as well.

Gray hair is a sign of wisdom.

....That's what I tell myself, anyway. Makes me feel better about it.

That doesn't sound right... I'm a wise-a**, so if that was right, I'd be completely grey. :P

Yeah that's what I figured... I don't think I've been more stressed than after my son was born, and that's when I really started to notice them more.
