Some people get grey hairs earlier than others. There’s not much you can do besides dye it if it bothers you. Don’t worry it’s more common than you think! It’s also going to be much more noticeable to yourself than others.

My partner has had grey hairs speckled throughout his dark brown hair since he was a teenager too. We joke that it’s from stress but really it’s just genetic. It doesn’t look bad

It's completely normal - I have a few, my friends have a few, it's largely genetic and, unless you point it out, people aren't likely to notice and if they do notice they aren't likely to care

I think I was about 21 when I got my first grey hairs. I've got a lot more now but I just dye them. If it's just one grey hair, for now, you can just pluck it out. You're just more likely to need to dye your hair to cover them in some years.

I know you wanted advice from girls but I just wanted to say I first noticed mine in year 10 after a friend pointed it out. I think mine was more due to stress and vitamin deficiencies but it could be down to lots of things, mainly genetics.

If it helps I had a teacher who had long streaks of grey hair in her early twenties (that was genetic) so it is normal!

babe, believe me this is so normal. Rip it out, and chances are you probably won't get another one and if you do it's so normal, i remember people in yr 11 had like loads of strands of grey hairs, it's genetic for 99% of people. It's not that deep my love. Don't stress it

If you want permission to dye your hair then explaining that you’ve found some greys and are feeling self conscious about it will help. Although if you don’t want to dye it then you don’t have to bring it up if you don’t want to. I’m sure your mum will be understanding, just let her know how you’re feeling xx
