I'm only in my early thirties. I've had to put up with a lot. It's quite shocking, don't you think, to be white haired in my early thirties?

Seems pretty cool to have white hair at a young age. Better than being bald at 30.

My father's hair was totally white by the time he turned 40. He was known as the "Silver Fox."

I wish my hair would turn that white. It's mostly gray now.

In early thirties too, yes I have some white hair, plus my hair is thinning.

Silver Fox sounds alright.

I think it says something though that this has happened so young. What I've experienced in my life can't be normal. I will carry on regardless but I would like NTs to reflect on how difficult it might be for aspies if some of us are turning grey or white in our thirties.

Hair situation seems fine @ 42 and greying only a little but I did manage to get a heart attack @ 34 due to overstress. Primarily because of undiagnosed Asperger's and Autistic burnout.

I just wonder if my hair is going to turn completely white before it all falls out, but I don't get stressed about it.

I thought it was wierd a few years back when I was only 30 that I had greys. I was under a lot of stress. I see now it happens to others.
