i dont know if my mate was pulling my leg or not, but he said its due to head and shoulders chemicals. im pretty sure hes taking the pee

if theres so few you can count them (you have, it's 6- 8) just pull them out

it probably is stress, stress does weird things to some people

"Stress causes telomeres (repeated sections of DNA at the ends of chromosomes) to unravel. Telomeres are there as protection. Stress causes the telomeres to shorten more quickly than they do naturally...hence, aging, like your gray hairs."


that's not meant to be a smilie, SIX TO EIGHT it's meant to say

My dad went gray at the age of 15. My brothers got white hairs and he is 20, I have none so far and i'm 26.

Wouldn't worry about it at all, if your that worried dye your hair from time to time with a natural colour.

I had grey hairs at 15, my mum was completely grey at 42 ( my age ) and my father who is 77 still has jet black hair, its just your genetic coding
#11
What has diet got to do with pigments in your hair!!! People go grey at different ages, some people don't go grey at all - surely you realise that??
[mod]#12
I'm going grey............doesn't bother me and if it did i could always dye it. If i was going bald however then that can't be fixed by a £5 job.

So in short.............it doesn't matter. :D

It's hereditary whether from your parents or grandparents, I got my first grey hair at 14 but it has been steady since. I'm now 38 and dye my hair (I'm a woman by the way!!) or I think it would be pretty much all grey. Doubt it's due to stress or anything, would've happened no matter how fit and healthy you are, it's just your time to get grey hairs I'm afraid.

Once there was this kid who
Got into an accident and couldn't come to school
But when he finally came back
His hair had turned from black into bright white
He said that it was from when
The cars had smashed so hard
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm
Mmm Mmm Mmm Mmm

its just genetics.... i suggest you embrace it. You might grow to become a silver headed stallion which many older women and your your age like..... no homo intended

Surely you must realise that what you eat, your weight, and the shape of your body have no bearing on the colour of your hair?!!! oO

I think he meant he has a good diet e.g proper nutrition that or he wanted to show off that he had a six pack

Ahhhhahahhaa, I take it you're not studying any science!!
I don't see how having grey hair is related to having a 6 pack?
#25
dye it black, thats what most ppl do, but I would wait till it becomes really noticeable
#26
Had a few at around 15 or 16, wouldn't worry about it for now. You can always dye it later on when you get way more.

My mum found the first one in my hair when I was six, the hair dresser said it's because the rest of my hair has so much pigment that some strands have absolutely no pigment in that's why there like that, perfectly normal!
banned#30
Yeah listen to the advice of a hair dresser on human genetics. Got about 7 that I can see apparently more round the back. I'm 28 now. Philip schofield looks alright.
