Age is something we all have to deal with some of us deal with it good and some of us deal with it not so good. I am a person that have the grey jean were your hair gets grey at a young age and it sucks. I think it makes you look older than your supposed to be. I used to tell people its not age its intelligences and experience. So do anyone have the same problem that im have aging faster then your supposed to and how do you handle it.

ha ha ha I started getting my 1st grey hair when I said I DO 45 yrs ago no joke I pulled it out & guess what? I have a head full now & it just went from there, at 1st I started dying it well when it got so grey the DYE wouldn't cover it I said just my luck & let it go & haven't dyed my hair in YRS. SO the answer to your question is with grey hair brings wisdom & I'm pretty smart on a lot of things in my 60 yrs on this earth & PROUD of it too.
My hair started to go grey when I was in my 30s. For quite a long time I used to dye it, until eventually my concern about continually putting chemicals on my head became greater than my vanity. It would now be over 10 years since I last dyed my hair, and I am now quite proud of my pretty silver hair.
@hereandthere When I was in Bible College (back in the days of the dinosaurs) there was a girl in my class who was about 20, and had jet black hair except for one magnificent sweep of pure white in the front. We all thought she dyed it, but it turned out that it was natural - there was just one patch of her scalp where the hair had no pigment. It really looked quite stunning.
My best friend in elementary and high school had the same problem as yours. We were just 9 years old when most of her hair turned to grey and it was only when we were in high school that she decided to dye her hair black. She was the subject of bullying and all the teasing because of her hair. People will never understand that. But we don't have to listen to what they say about us all the time or allow them to get into our heads. I know it's easy for me to say coz I'm always mistaken as younger than what my actual age is. But even that was a struggle for me because people sometimes don't take me seriously coz they thought I'm still very young. So when I introduce myself, I have to tell them I'm already 40 years old.
