Do you have any? Dye over them to cover, or not yet?

What about hubby?

I don't think I do. I'd have to check in the roots pretty carefully though

DH has some grey hair, but not a lot. Most people probably wouldn't even notice.

I do. I have to dye every 6 weeks to keep it under control. It's actually caused by my autoimmune thyroid disease. I didn't have any until I had Maddie and developed hypo.

There might be 1 or 2 hidden in there. My sister usually finds and removes a few offenders when she visits us. So like every 6 months or so... I haven't colored my hair since 2006 I think.

DH has dark blond/sandy brown hair and keeps it pretty short. If he does have any gray hairs we don't see them. He does, however, have a pretty impressive receding hairline that we like to poke fun at

You guys, for the most part, are soooo lucky. I started going gray in my early 20's. I've gone from strawberry red to almost blond with the bottle until now I'm regular, everyday bottle chocolate brown.

A friend once told me I should grow out my gray because it's not dishwater ugly gray but shiny, bright silver gray. I took her advice...once. That worked when I was much younger but now as a middle age old woman I know there's no turning back.

I have a few hidden in there that I pull out. DH has a few as well. They are pretty obvious in his almost black hair.

I have more grey than not at this point. I started to grey in my late 20s. I got away with highlights through my 30s and this past year have just gone full colour.

DH has a lot of grey as well, about 50/50 at this point. No colour for him. Guys are so lucky with the salt & pepper look.

I don't have any yet.

DH has a couple but you can't really see them because his hair is long and thick. I've found a couple in his beard also.

None here! I hope I don't have to worry about that for another couple decades. My mom is just now starting to get a couple gray hairs. I will be so sad though when it happens, I like my hair the way it is! Dh doesn't have any gray, but his hair line is starting to recede.

Yes, tons! It's hereditary. My brother is really grey too. I dye my roots often. Hubbub thinks I should let it grow because I have black hair and it might look neat. I totally disagree. I started noticing a lot in college.

DH has none. I don't think his mom does either. Pretty sure it's female linked?

I'll be 35 this year. I have 'dishwater blonde' hair naturally. Grows in brunette and turns blonder, especially in the sun. not alot of sun up here so gray streakers show and they are super fine and hard to pluck! but usually right at my part. my hair is so fine it's annoying

i have about 10 maybe and they are all in one spot....you can;t really tell because they are not on top. i don't think i'll dye my hair. i actually like gray/silver hair.....i may change my mind as i get older though!
my mom has been gray since she was 17 but my dad is bald...i'd rather be gray than bald!

Dh starting getting some a few years ago - he still has some but not so much you'd notice. I thought I was safe until my hair stylist mentioned she was covering some last time I was there - she said it was just a few here and there.

I haven't noticed any and hope I have tons of time before I do. My MIL was FULLY grey by 40, and my mom just started gettingthem in the past couple years, she's in her mid 50s.

Tom has the salt and pepper look for the most part, but the top is more brown than grey, and the back/above the ears is more grey than brown.

His father started balding around 19, and by 25 he had pretty much thesame hair line he has now. I feel bad for my SIL's kids if it is Male pattern baldness.

I have noticed lots now after having Paige, and especially with my new haircut, time to buy a box of dye! As for DH he has tons! It's pretty hard to notice though since he shaves his head and beard, but you can see some in his goatee.

I have LOTS. I consider myself lucky though because my Dad turned completely white in his late teens. I started getting greys in my early 30's and in the last couple of years I have noticed alot of them.. same as Cyndee.. most of them are at my part. I have blonde highlights through my hair so they are only really noticeable if I wait too long to touch it up.
