Yes, sure do and, as Morriea said, they are well earned! I think the hair dna changes when one gives birth:)

vote-for13vote-against

Quite a few, but not as many as it seems I've earned. Proud of them. Now, get off my lawn!

Not just any, a vast majority.

Got my first at 16, and it's been downhill from there. Can't even blame my wife for them...it's all genetics. :/

But honestly, as long as I have my hair, I don't really care what color it is.

I think silverish hair gives off an aura of wisdom.

I've been losing hair AND getting some gray hairs here and there for over the past decade already ... and it's not genetics. :(

As Miss Clairol once said "Does she…or doesn’t she? Only her hairdresser knows for sure".

That's my story and I'm sticking to it!

Just call me salt & pepper! Weird thing is that when I wear my long hair pulled up, the underside is my original color - sort of auburn. Wish I had grayed the other way around!

OK. I'll start off saying I'll be 50 in a couple months. That being said, My hair has started turning, (Only at the temples so far.)a stark white. I seem to be bypassing the whole gray thing. I figure a couple more years my sideburns will have gone completely white and I'll be one distinguished SOB. Beyond that, I'm not willing to hypothesize.

vote-for8vote-against

I think there's quite a bit of gray. It gets colored before I see maybe an inch of it.

I'm 32, and I've had a few white (or "super-blonde") hairs since I was 26. Coincidentally, this was the year I had to learn Medicare Part D for work.

i got my first grey hair in Fifth grade (the first time through) but luckily 10 years later its still just a couple of spots, my stepmom went to high school with a guy who was completely grey when he graduated.

vote-for12vote-against

I don't but my parents do. They named them after me.

vote-for7vote-against

Yes.

My wife has MANY more than I and does what she needs to do to make them disappear...for a few weeks at a time.

Her's all came from our 4 sons. Mine came from two of our three DILs.

They would be just a fact of life.

vote-for8vote-against

I've had white hair since I was 12 (or at least that was when I started noticing... I never really paid attention). They've been multiplying ever since. I blame genetics.

vote-for6vote-against

Yes. My beard has been "salt & pepper" and I've had silver temples for at least five years, maybe seven.

vote-for7vote-against

I've had a few since I was five; the main body of my hair has occasional grays scattered through, but I have a white streak at each temple. Now how 'bout a kiss, sugah?

My Mom went almost completely gray in her early 30s -- hers is gray. Her brother went early too, but his is stark white. Seems it is the darker haired people who gray sooner. Harder to maintain the darker pigment? I never thought I would make it out of my 30s with any color left, but I actually did. Mine is maybe 10-15% gray, and for now it hides well because it's long. Added about 5% in this last year. Not looking forward to graying. Don't want to color it. I'm very low-maintenance and want to stay that way.

Read somewhere recently that 95% of women color their hair, but I do not believe it is nearly that high.

vote-for10vote-against

I'm barely in my 20s and already have a few white hairs.

I have a few on my body, and these ones are unusually long (compared to hairs around them).

I have had my girl friend and others find a few hairs on my head that are white at the root and go for a few inches, while the rest of the hair is black.

In my case it is just genetics...

My uncle on my mom's side had a LOT of white hairs when he was in his 30s.
My mother has been dying her hair, so I'm not sure how many she has.

vote-for10vote-against

If it weren't for the grey & white hair, I'd have no hair at all.

Way to depress us for the weekend.

Some. All thanks to my son most likely.

I started noticing mine when I was 18 or 19, and have been getting more every year. My dad grayed prematurely, too, so I blame it on him. Now if only I can get the women who do my hair to stop wanting to color it, I'd be happy. I like my white hair, it looks cool.

vote-for5vote-against

I have a few here and there, though I have long hair and I like to refer to them as my "highlights" :)

vote-for5vote-against

Like @taythegibs I also started noticing a few in 5th grade. It stayed a few through college and started to get a few more, but not too noticeable, mostly on the crown of my head. In college I started experimenting with dyeing my hair various shades of red (I'm a natural brunette, very mousey) and haven't gone back to my natural hair color in probably over 15 years. Even my family forgets that red isn't my natural hair color at times. Now I get my hair professionally colored to make sure the grey is covered and stays covered until the next coloring, and so the color is what I want and I don't look like Ronald McDonald (which has definitely happened during college).

Had several when I was just a baby. Now approaching 30, it's probably 45-50% grey. And not pretty grey/silver/white. Dull grey. Makes it really difficult to dye my hair for upkeep reasons, but it's not flattering letting it grow out either.

vote-for5vote-against

Started getting them while I was in college. And with black hair they were very noticeable. By the time I was in my 30's, it was salt & pepper. Still is, but more salt. But after a shower, it gets dark until it dries. My younger brother has kept his color, but lost more than 50% of it. So, I'll say that I'd rather be gray than nay. (I can always use Just For Man)

vote-for6vote-against

All gray and silver. I'm not unhappy with it, and I'm too lazy to bother with coloring it. At 64, it is what it is.

vote-for5vote-against

Got my first one in college. Now that I have four small boys, I am going gray much faster. Even found a gray eyebrow hair the other day. Given that I have my maternal grandmother's hair and how thin hers was as she aged, I'm just happy to have hair, regardless of the color.

vote-for5vote-against

Mid 20's and I keep finding more and more, found my first one at around 17, all just straight up white. Now I'm finding new ones every week. I blame work, but I'm sure genetics aren't helping. Like others said as long as I can keep my hair It can turn all turn gray next week.

@cowboydann: Wait until they head south for the winter :/

vote-for4vote-against

No, but I do have an large percentage of, ahem, platinum blonde highlights!

DH started going gray in his late 20s. As a blonde, we didn't realize how gray he was for a while. My hair is light brown and I didn't start getting, um, highlights until my late 40s. The fun part was that my YOUNGER sisters who had thick, dark, wavy hair I always envied were extremely gray by their 30s and coloring their hair. I was the last to go gray and discovered that my gray hair is MUCH thicker and has more body that the fine dirty blonde stuff I grew up with.

Silver hair. Silver lining! FTW!

I'm 28 and I think I got my first one this past year.

Soon death will be taking me in her sweet embrace.

Sigh.

None here. Of course, I've been pretty much completely bald since I was 22, so...
