I've definitely gone greyer since parenthood, not good when you're very very dark

I am 34 though so I suppose i wasn't going to get away with it much longer anyway. Boo.

Luckily i've found a semi-permanent Nice'n'Easy that is virtually an exact match for my natural colour. I never wanted to go down that route but the 'salt&pepper' look just ain't me!

Nah I think its a genetic thing.....you get your hair from your mum so if she went gray young or old then you will too....but maybe pregnancy has just speeded up the process...but yeah having kids does usually give you grey hairs....just wait til it falls out after pregnancy thats more upsetting!!!!!!! x

I haven't dared look!
But I have noticed my 'granny hairs' (you know, the weird thick one that appears on my chin and arm (I know, arm! weird!)) have turned a glorious white and are re-growing fast... tweezers to the rescue!!!

I found 2 last night... now they have 'vanished' Thankfully my hairdresser has a colour than matches my natural one exactly! (I know this from dying over the blue, pink, purple, orange, yellow, green, red and lilac that is have dyed my hair!)

I have been going grey since I was 9! now I am 28 and pregnant and it seems to have sped up the process, as they do seem to be more noticeable. If you are comfortable dying it then do that. I have to do mine every 3 weeks its that bad lol!! I really look like an evil witch with my dark hair and stupid amount of grey!

I only know that through my hairdresser and also from I have read over the years.....but ur hair is a genetic thing and always come from the mother so if your brother or husband etc is going bald its generally from their mothers father...that make sense?

My ex has salt and pepper hair and has a full head of hair yet his dad is bald as a coot but apprently his mother aka the dragon well his mothers dad had full head of hair til he died!!!

Who knows

Gee I hope it's Genetic from your mothers's side!!! My mom will be 45 tomorrow and hasn't found one grey hair on her head yet..... I figured it was cause she just didn't give a damn whether she was entire grey or not and that's just how the world worked and I would be doomed.... but I like the genetics idea better

I have three annoying shiny silver hair sprouting from the top of my head. It is extra horrible when it grows in a squiggly curly manner much like pubic hair while all my other dark brown/black hair falls straight. The beauty of pregnancy, eh?
