LOL!!! :)  I am 30 and very brunette (when I buy that new box of hair dye that is!)  Well, really, I have  A lot of spread out gray hair everywhere and I do have to keep my hair dyed b/c if I don't, at the part of my hair (any way I part it) you can see what is becoming streaks of it!  My mom went fully gray on one side at 31 due to hysterectomy.  I have had my gray for years now, and after getting the thyroiditis, did a little reading - now I wonder if I have had the thyroid problems for years now too.  Funny how much of bodily functions require the thyroid - I am amazed!

Hum, Interesting thought. I am 33 and started getting grey at 26 when I had my first daughter. I just thought it was her making me grey!?!?!?! LOL Wonder if someone has associated it with the thyroid! I too have nice dark brown, black hair. (out of a bottle) LOL

Interesting article, thanks!  I also noticed when I was hypo self tanner didn't seem to work. So maybe there is something to the melanin theory.
