I had grey hairs at 24 before I was even pregnant with my first. Only a few at my hairline though.

Nope- finished having kids at 26, I'm 28 now and still don't have any grey hairs. However, my mom just turned 50, and she doesn't have any either! Lucky genes in that department!

I started going grey at 21. I pluck 3-5 greys a week and am 27 now with 3 kids. No where near done (hoping for 5-6 kids)

Ha ha, my hair's been turning gray since I was 15. It's all naturally gray now and actually is starting to get some whiter streaks that almost look like blond in it! Premature graying runs in my family, though. My uncle had white hair by the time he was 38.

DH just found a single strand on me the other day. I'm currently pg with #2, not 100% sure if this is the last for us but it most likely is.

Don't know if we are done yet, but no gray hair DH's been bald since college though

ETA: It should be pointed out that my 53 yo mother & 94 yo grandmother don't have any gray hairs either, so genetics are definitely on my side.

I had my first gray at 16. But the amount nearly doubled when I was pregnant with my first in my late 20s. I'm probably 10% gray, mostly around the temples.
