    Just a Little Patch

    I have a little bitty patch of white hair in the front left side.  It's easy to see when my hair is really short, but it's often hidden when it's long.

    I got my first white hair in 8th grade, believe it or not. And now I have quite a few. lol. When I get enough, I'm going to stop dying my hair because I like white hair.

    Raven to Dove

    Since this year started, I noticed that I've been sprouting more and more white strands, which I pluck with a gusto once I see them. I've never had my hair colored before, and want to see how long it would be before my white hairs finally push me to going purple. Yeah...

    My Flaw

    The strands of white is a curse brought to me after my sixth grade year (the year I was the most depressed). It was a shame that I had to cover up. I had despised it every time someone would point out, "You have white hair." Yes, I know I have them. There's no further need to...

    Only My Facial Hair.

    I'm 20 and oddly enough, my facial hair seems to be mostly white with a few patches of darker hair. I think they could possibly be grey, but looking at them up close they really do look white.I have yet to find any white hairs elsewhere, so for now it is just my facial hair. My...

    I Earned Them!

    In my 32 years, I've been through a lot and those white hairs remind me so..  I love them, I embrace them, and soon I am going to color over them...  but not because they're white,  I just really like coloring my hair!

    Pretending to Accept Them

    I have a ton of grey hair. It started going grey before I even hit 30.  Whenever someone comments on it, I always respond with something like" I never thought I'd live long enough to get them".  Or I'll say" I worked very hard for these". Something...

    Still Young

    Although I am still only a teenager, I have always had a few white hairs if you look closley at my hairline.  I guess that those few strands were never able to make color pigment.  It's funny how random they are, thank god I'm not aging yet.

    Since I Was 15

    yep, and i dye my hair every other month to cover it, but i guess its cool that i got it in a very young age,so i won't freak out when i get older and spot it when it grows for real .

    White Feathers

    I have had grey hairs for a long time and I am just about to turn 30 so now they seem to match me a bit better.  It is strange the I have less of them now than I did when I was a bit younger but when I was in my early 20's I was very ill and we thought I was going to die...

    The Haircut

    I went to get a haircut three days ago, and as the barber was cutting my hair he says, "When did you start growing gray hairs". So I guess either turning 30 has caused the gray hair or the wisdom Ive been accumulating through the years.

    Had Them Since I Was 15...

    I think it's hereditary, because my mother started having white hairs when she was 15 as well.  Mine are really obvious.  People love plucking them out for me and making me cringe.  Sometimes I get very strange hairs that alternate black and white down the length...
