I’m 50 Shades Of Greying…

So yesterday I woke up in the morning and stared at myself in the mirror like I usually do and to my horror I found a grey hair. It was terrifying and for a few seconds I just stood there refusing to believe that this was happening. And then I tried to see if it was really my hair or like a piece of thread stuck to my head. Unfortunately, it was my real hair.

So I messaged my friends about it and they were like don’t worry it’s not a big deal and one of my friends said she’s got a couple of grey hairs too which made me feel a lot better about the whole thing. The next thingΒ I did was Google because that’s always my go to response to everything and I found out lots of people have grey hair early due to things like stress and for some people it’s just genetic. It’s sad that we put so much stress on children these days that they have grey hair as early as 10.

Anyway, I talked to my parents about it and apparently mineΒ is probably hereditary because both my dad and sister got grey hairs really early on at about the same age as I am. I was thinking about plucking it out but decided to just leave it alone since it’s barely visible.

I have to admit that I didn’t think grey hair was something I would have to worry about anytime soon. I mean I thought I would be at least 30 before I got my first one. But now I’ve kind of made my peace with it. These days when bad things happen IΒ just think that now I have one more story to tell people about or I got over one more bad thing which means that’s one less bad thing I have to deal with in the future.

Anyway I just wanted to share this little story with you guys because I feel like I haven’t done a post like this in quite a while and I also wanted to hear your thoughts on it too which I hope you’ll leave in the comments below. Do you have any grey hair? If so when did you start getting them??

And if you enjoyed this post don’t forget to like, follow and share!!

  1. LOL, I have hereditary grey hair and they sprout out immediately I hit puberty. I love my silver streaks, I am the only one who doesn’t dye my hair in my family. I think we might be age mates or at least close btw, so cool!

  3. I got my first gray hair in my late 20s. They worsened after I had my daughter. I don’t know. They didn’t bother me too much, because they don’t change who you are inside. But it may change how others perceive you. Hang in there though. It’s really ok.

    1. Thank you! Yeah you’re absolutely right I mean how you look shouldn’t change who you are on the inside and I think people who judge others by how they look aren’t really people I want to be friends with. My hair doesn’t really bother me much though πŸ™‚

    1. Hahaha yeah hair dye makes everything better. Unfortunately my hair is really dark black so it shows but I honestly don’t mind it! It’s always how you feel on the inside that matters! πŸ™‚

      1. Ha! I am American with a strange bad habit of spelling grey the British way, which I have been trying to drop since it’s a weird affectation and I don’t know where I got. Now I read your reply and realize that I did not need to self-correct back to the American spelling here.

      2. Hahaha yeah I know Americans spell quite a few words differently and honestly before I wrote this post I wasn’t sure whether I should spell it grey or gray. I’m really used to using grey though.

      3. See, no one ever taught me to spell grey with an e and other Americans tease me about it.Americans adopting British spellings are seen as kind of snobby here, even if sometimes they just look prettier!

  5. I started graying in my early 20s and now have a gray streak. I used to be self-conscious about it, but my husband finally said, “How many people your age have been through what you have?” Now I think of it like a badge of honor. I still dye my hair though.

    1. Wow you’re so lucky to be married to someone that supportive and he’s totally right. I think of it that way too because I feel like my grey hair symbolises all the battles I’ve fought and everything I’ve been through πŸ™‚

    1. Yes totally agree! It’s always your mindset that matters the most when it comes to aging. Yeah grey hair is definitely, at least in my opinion, a sign of wisdom and conquered battles. It’s sad what society is doing to the youth.
