When did you have your first gray hair? and would you dye your hair to cover it?

We all hate when it starts to happen, your first gray hair, it look so weird and just like a hay in stack of needles !!
What !! Gray !! No !!
What !! Gray !! No !!

I got my first one at the age of 24 , It is not so visible , but now I have to or three of the side (they are just funny looking ) .
As for using hair dye, I don't think I would, I think gray hair would look great on me
Looks good !!
Looks good !!

What do you think , would you fight aging or just accept it?

Thanks for all your answers everyone
I am sorry , I had a really busy day , hopefully , I will reply to all of your answers tomorrow :)
By now , it is interesting how many people would leave their hair as it is , I think that is great , but sometimes , you can try different things , sure one day I would dye my hair (mostly other color ) , It is not like I don't like it, but why not try new things.
Thanks again <3

  • I started growing white hair when I was 15 years old, not from genetics but from stress, slowly as I calmed down - my white hair turned black again. Everybody in my family says I have less white hair at 33 then I did at 15. When I was in high school my friends used to make fun of me for having so much white hair and stress in my life. However I don't look that young cause I am starting to get wrinkles and furrow marks around my eyebrow area which is unfortunate because I used to have a gorgeous face.

      don't worry about it :)

  • I was literally at my hair stylists last appointment with me after twenty years of her doing my hair. She was moving which was super traumatic because she became like family. Right as she finished I was checking out my hair in the mirror and I thought there was some lint or something in my hair...I got up close to the mirror and it was my first gray at 29. I have a couple more, but I have yet to dye them. I somehow thought this was only happening to me "at such a young age," lol, but when I brought this subject up with my friends, they were all like, oh I have 10 or a bunch of them or yeah, I got my first at 20, and then it was like, oh, okay, it's not the big earth shattering big deal I thought it was.

  • Have grey hair. Don't care. We will all age. Gravity will ultimately take its toll on everyone. I'd rather spend all that energy (and money) on worrying about superficial things like that on things that I enjoy - like walking and playing with my dog, spending time with family, being an expert at my job, achieving something meaningful this lifetime. Do I cleanse, tone, and moisturize? Yes. Because it makes me feel clean and tidy, and I want to present a neat and tidy appearance to my clients and friends. But grey hair? Wrinkles? Couldn't care less.

  • I'm not sure exactly. I've been shaving my head for over 20 years. I'd been shaving it for over a decade before I realized I wasn't growing it like when I was younger. I noticed my first gray hair on my chest, actually. That may not be where the first came in but that's where I noticed it first. Again, I've been shaving my head for a long time, so I haven't a clue what's going on up there beyond I still hafta shave. My facial hair has always been mostly red with some blonde sprinkled in. Now there's more blonde than before, but I'm fairly certain if I let it grow out, my beard would be more gray than blonde, and pretty close to 50/50 gray/red... for now. I shave that every week too, so I don't much care. I actually laughed about it because I knew the jokes were coming. I'd been fucking with other guys about gray hair for too long with no consequences. Everyone gets their comeuppance, no exceptions.

  • I'm too young to have grey hairπŸ˜….
    But I'm already afraid of aging, it must be terrible to watch your body becoming uglier than you used to see it.
    If I get grey hair, I won't dye it. Hair color isn't that important for guys, it's more about volume

    • Lol don't be afraid, and it is okay you need to accept it, and your body can get better as you age lol (I have a better body than I used to)

    • But I mean after 30. You can't stop getting wrinkles after that age

    • I guess so, but it doesn't matter much lol

  • I was in my 30s I think when I started noticing them. I still don't have much gray. I do dye my hair though because I love it bright red.

    I want to be one of those ancient grannies with a walker and still a ton of red hair.

  • I haven't had one yet but I doubt I would dye my hair because of that. I haven't wanted to dye my hair so far because I don't want to get sucked into the cycle of dying. I don't think grey hairs would change that.

  • I had my first gray at 16 or 18 and my hair is Super dark like almost black black.. ( like so dark that hair salons can't dye it and make it look natural it's so dark) So it's like so noticeable when I have the gray hairs.. but for now they're so fair and few between that I can just laugh them off... maybe I'm a few years when there a whole like clump of them in one spot or like patch of them I'll get my hair colored a crazy color , but for now I'm just doing the natural thing

  • I don't have gray hair but depending in the age I get it first I'd wither dye it or leave it. If I get gray hair before 45 I'd dye it. If later then I'd leave it as is.

  • I just turned 43 and got my first grey hair around 41 and only in my side burns. Every 4 to 6 weeks I get my hair coloured partly because I like the colour and partly because I have no intention of surrendering to age.

  • I don't remember when it was exactly. Around 45, or so? I saw it in the bathroom, felt excited and laughed at my picture in the mirror. Meanwhile there is more grey (whitish, actually). I quite like it. A new body- or life experience. My beard already grew white when I was 38 or so: a food poisoning had tried to kill me.
