I have just found a few in my hair! Should I be worried? My hair is naturally really dark so they show up easily. I die my hair every few months could this be a reason?

I'm 16 and I get them too - I also have brown hair but i've never dyed it, and my hair dresser said that dying it wont make a difference - it wont make any more hairs grey, they just do it on their own. which sucks!!

As scary as it sounds - it's totally normal. Just pluck them.

All I can say, is live with it really.

I have over a hundred - I'm only slightly older than you
I first got my white hair at 11.

Whats worse, getting them at 17 or 11?

Also, is it noticeable?
Mine are And I'm alright with having them look cool yeah

My ex boyfriend had loads (from being about 15 I think) and I know alot of other young people with them. Its no big deal, run over them with mascara if it bothers you

it's more common than you think , for most people it's hereditary but there's a slight chance it's due to a vitamin defficiency.

you're fine! totally normal
however, the dying of your hair probably played a big factor in you getting grey hairs this early.

I have been lacking in my consumption of 5 portions of fruit and veg recently, I'll try and eat more!

I sometimes do that.

My mum makes a special herbed dye for me - leave it on for 6-10 hours. so my hair gets all the nutrients etc. And white hairs become golden

One hair follicle= one hair growing out of it?

OP, I have WHITE hair, don't worry about it, just pull them out.
