    top of my head. Not all of them are grey anymore. I've found a few over the last year. One has turned white. A few are a reddish brown and others are blonde. My mom found one that was mottled grey and black. The rest are still grey. It's all kinda weird to me. After all, the...

    Okay so my hair isn't grey,

    not naturally anyway, I'm only 16 but I love grey hair. People think I'm weird because of it but I do, that's why I dye my hair grey. People find it unusual for me at a young age to have grey hair but I like it.

    Yepper, But I Am A Guy.

    It looks good on us, and it's not the end of the world to me.   Now when I started to get gray hair down there that was a little weird, but I even got used to that.
