I'm 32 and started getting white hairs! I'm really upset about this as I feel I'm too young for this to be happening! (I mean I know it happens to people but I figured it'd start when I was like 40 or so. You know how the plan goes. ).
So any suggestions for hair coloring that's safe and not loaded down with chemicals? Or salons that use a safe hair color?
I've gotten my first white hairs when I was between 18-21 yrs. old. I found out it runs in my mothers side, which I was not aware since I was raised by my grandmother on my fathers side.
I met my mothers mother about 5 years a go and she had white hair I know that in your 80's it's expected. The difference is you can see a few natural colored hair and white at that age mostly white, but with her it was ALL WHITE I'm glad I asked when did she get white hair and she said early in age. Bingo!
Well I know what you mean by getting upset the good thing is I look very young I'm 42 with tons of white hair. I've been dying my hair since I was 28 and didn't have but 3 white hairs as my hair was being dyed for over 10 years I noticed the new growth almost half if not more of my hair was white.
I just continue to dye it and I won't stop till I feel like I look the age to have white hair. I have switched from buying dyes with chemicals to a natural dye that I buy from Whole Foods it's called
I have been finding white hairs here and there for several years, but I don't care enough to dye it. My Mom has been dying her hair all her adult life and I refuse.
I did notice since changing my diet it slowed down a bit though. But even if I were to turn all the way grey/white, I'd be fine with that. Its how i was made, so no big deal. As long as i can stick my hair in a pony tail, I'm happy.
I have seen several natural'ish dyes at the health food stores though, so hopefully you will find what your looking for.
I started getting grey hairs (we call them grey in the Netherlands ;) in my early twenties! Around 30 i was very grey.... I used to be punk so I coloured all the time and after switched to more natural colors... I am in my forties now and still have to paint very often as my hair grows quickly... I am bored of painting but not ready to be so grey..... Maybe after some years i will do... And believe me I am VERY grey (not just a bit, all my hairs almost)
don't know where you live, but if you are anywhere near NYC (or even planning a trip there!) head for John Masters Salon - lets face it, dye is dye but his is at least an ammonia free salon and the color itself is pretty low impact, I heart john masters!
I'm glad i'm not the only one - I'm in my mid 20s and have been slowly discovering more grey hair over the past 5 or more years. does anyone know of any more natural hair dye brands - i'm still tossing up as to whether to take that route, but i really don't want to be completely grey by the time i hit 30....
I also started going gray early - found my first at 18, and now almost 20 years later I'm very very silver. I've had Aveda color done over the years, and I really like it, but not the price. Especially now as a stay at home mom, I just can't afford to pay almost $200 for cut and color, so I'm looking into some other options.
A friend of mine also found a salon that uses some new brand of natural haircolor. I'm definitely getting a haircut there soon, and plan to ask what brand of color they use - I'll post it once I find out!
