Where Are They Now

I found a gray hair. I pulled it out. I was suprised that it was a different consistency, more wirey and "rough" than my real hair. It was shorter and had NO color anywhere on it. I was shocked. I immediately started googling to find out why this happens. Apparently from the time you find your first gray it is 10 years until you are fully gray. But I don't believe this. Also, women, on average start graying at 35.


All that previous talk about season endings not being as exciting, crap. Because NCIS last night was good. And I can't find ANY information on contracts being up so I do have to wait for next year. BLAH.

Here are all the Favorite Recipes that were posted!

Ha - I got you beat. (Imagine that). First gray: 25 More gray now: Yes, but not fully gray. However my grandmother was completely gray by early 20's. And the gray's, yes the consistency just sucks, wirey, stick straight out (but not straight themselves), thick and unyielding into any sort of style. Enjoy the 1st one, obviously it was earned!

Shoot! 10 years! I think my first one was a few years ago, so by the time I am 40 I am going to be completely grey???? Or bald since I keep pulling them out.

I'll be the first guy to say I like gray hair in women. It's sexy to me. Don't know why. I totally dig the skunk stripe.

The dreaded gray hair is the pubic gray hair though. Oh man, that's when you get old. Nearly killed my wife and I to find those.

Had my first gray about a year ago...probably a dozen since then. Feisty little buggers that don't like to be ripped out!

I have grey hairs in my hair, my beard, and just about everywhere.

I think of it as the lazy man's punk rock hair dye.

You're right though, it is weird, wiry stuff.

Here's a book I stumbled upon one day that I thought might be an interesting read, even though I'm not a mother: Going Gray.

I started going gray when I was 28 years old! As I am now 51, I am happy to report that (s) I've been coloring my hair for 23 years and (b) I know from the "roots showing" that the gray is STILL limited to the top of my head mainly and some on the "sideburns". I would be a great Lily Munster (vs. Cruella Deville). Got that lovely genetic capability from dear old Dad - at least if I ever decide to go "whole hog gray" (and I hasten to add not LIKELY anytime soon!), it will be a lovely silvery platinum - not flat, matte gray (which is akin to "scarred" vs. "disfigured" - don't want EITHER thank you very much!)

As to recipes, how cool that it all "extended" out blogwise! So thanks for sharing those in your blog-realm who responded. (cue "Circle of Life" in background...)

I am pretty sure that 10 year thing is wrong. I found my first about 5 years ago, and I have maybe 10 or so more, but nowhere NEAR my whole head.

Lydia said...

The 10 year this can't be right. If it was - I would hav WAY WAY WAY more than I do - and John would be ALL gray. I hate mine - it is soon time to start coloring. As soon as summer is over that process will begin.
And I posted 2 more recipes....

I found my first white hair at about 30. I'm 52 now and I get them around the temples.

White, not gray.

Wish I had the guts to just go platinum but somehow it's not me.

My hair has been falling out since Madeline was born and growing in Gray. :( It shouldn't be a surprise, my older sister was totally gray at 30 and my brother who is 44 has WHITE hair. Oddly I have two brothers without a gray hair on their head (42 and 46)

Erica said...

Just to make you all feel better, I haven been graying since I was 19! I am now 29 and have a thick stripe of gray going down the back of my head but am no where near completely gray!

My daddy always said gray was distinguished now my hubby is saying it. It certainly isn't on a woman. I color my hair at home every month to cover up all the little gray hairs. I'm not sure how many I have now but it's more than when I found the first one. I think the kids help too.
