Yeah I'm 18 and I have some too... weird huh. Another weird thing that happened to me is over the summer I had a manual labor job at a golf course and was outside all day in the sun... eventually some of my arm hair turned from black to white/blonde.

I had a cousin who had an area of grey hair at 12.

At 22 I started to lose my hair. Not what hair I have I keep it buzzed down. I actually like it because of its very low maintenance.

My best friend had male pattern baldness by his mid-20's.

Just trying to cheer you up.

PS My best friend still had no problems with women--the most important reason for a man to be concerned with his appearance. My friend has a good heart, a good mind and is a good listener. Ask a woman whether she prefers a jerk with hair to a good man who is follicularly challenged.

What I need to see I can still see,
But my feet are a mystery.

You only need to start worrying when you can't get it to where you can see it.

Howdy All,
Had a receding hairline in my 20's. Started to get some gray about 3 years ago. Will turn 55 this month.

Immediately after the birth of son #1 my temples began graying at age 30. Seems to have happened overnight...(#1 is soon to be 18yo)

Now I posses what is a salt n pepper coiffure, more salt than pepper. However, a judge told me about twenty years ago, "Do not expect people to value your opinion (as a lawyer) until you are gray or bald."

I started getting some grays as a teenager. Had a couple of good gray streaks by 25. Today, at 33, I'm probably a third gray. Thank the invisible sky god for hair dye.

I am 20 and noticed that a lot of my arm hair gets extremly light in the summer. It must be from a lot of sun? I am out in the sun every day pretty much in the warm months, I have somewhat of a perma farmers tan.

Also my hairline is starting to recede a bit! SOAB, oh well I'll buzz it if it gets to bad.

My 25 year old son has less hair than me; he is losing it fast just like his uncles on his Moms side.
I'm 49 no grey hair; but have a balding spot on topback of my head that hasn't grown since my 20s. Go figure.
I lost quite a bit in High School from a crusty patch on my head caused by too much clorinated pool water. I could swear the water was pure bleach; Even the black haired girls went blonde.

Er, or get it to where you can't see it!

I got my first gray hairs in my late twenties and have plenty of them now. But I still look pretty much brown. (see my profile picture from two years ago)
