Default White hair

I think I spotted my first white hair this morning whilst shaving. Something glinted in the stubble

But I made it to 38 before having the first white hair. Being blond helps.

What about you?

When I noticed, i started to use hair dye. One of my students asked "Teacher, why you colour your hair ?" So i accepted the grey and then the silver. Old age in the ME gets you RESPECT !

Being rude and arrogant and pushy and demanding is what gets you respect in the Middle East. Bonus points if you drive a massive white Land Cruiser or Patrol.

Default Re: White hair

I have many flickers of grey in my hair, down the sides of my head mainly, nothing major but a bit. Started when I was about 27/28 I think.

Doesn't really bother me, in fact, it makes me even more distinguished, impressive and handsome

My best buddy is almost completely grey and has been heading that way since early 20's (he's early 30's now).

Embrace it. I have seen a few gents in their late 40's / early 50's who are clearly meant to be grey with dark hair and it's daft.

Damn, with my full head of grey hair and the above attributes, I must have now reached maximum respect.

I'm approaching fully white now, and I'm not an old geezer yet. Was going white since 30, though I've got the swag to pull it off babez

Salt and pepper for me too. Have had gray hair since my (very) early 30's. Don't mind it.

Not a fan of it in my stubble tho.

same here but I look better than him
but my first grey hair in the beard started right after I moved to Dubai 7/8 years ago
I dont use the traditional Dye, I use Henna, the original kind which takes 5-6 hours to mature but atleast hasnt any ammonia in it, I hate the smell of ammonia
Highly recommended for anyone willing to rock a little dark brown / dark orange in their hair
