I'm a healthy 36 year old woman, and i've been getting gray pubes for the past several years; it's not entirely gray, but on its way!!! I feel so old and unsexy--i don't think my boyfriend knows, because somehow the light in his apartment isn't so good, but i'm ashamed to tell him or show him!!!! I know, if we're close, I should be able to...But, does anyone else have this?? What do you do???? I don't want to shave it all off!!!!!!!!! Thanks for any reply!!!! :cry:

SAME HERE!
I am 28 years old and just this morning I noticed that had quite a few gray pubic hairs. Last time I looked I had only one or two.......now there are several. I thought there was something wrong that I needed to ask about at my next GYNE appt, which is why I am on the Net now. It's reassuring to see that I am not alone.

Wait a minute...I work in a nursing home and some of the ladies in there have dark hair. I don't think I ever notice gray hair. I don't know.

I am 35 years old and I have been grey down there ever since I was eighteen years old. Now I am almost completely grey. I sometimes think of myself as being old internally. I have always wondered what is happening to me.I was very embarrass about it at first and simple shaved them away, but now I am married and my husband want me to keep them. I am still concern about them now because they are now very itchy. Sometimes I get so frustrated I full they out, since they can be removes very easily. They just grow right back. Is this normal?

OMG. I experienced this about a year ago. I told my husband that if it ever turned gray I would shave it all off. My aunt warned me of this several years ago. So when I found my first one I manicured myself to less hair, can't really go bald! So I know that b/c I have just a little tuft there is less gray (1 hair every few months), I wouldn't know any different now, ha.

Okay, So We Have It, But What Is It? and/or What Causes It?
Okay. Now I don't feel so alone. I'm 32 and have noticed a few strands of this graying weirdness occur. Does anybody even know what this is or why it is happening? (I saw an episode of SATC where Charlotte had a few gray hairs down there, too. They said hers was depressed or something.) Somebody please give us a REAL answer for this strange phenomenon!!!!

If you have at least 50 percent gray hair on top before age 30, chances are you will get gray hair all over your body throughout your thirities. Arms, legs, nosehair, eyebrows, and yes, down there. Simply put, it is genetics. Nothing you can do about it. Pluck. Shave. Dye (although be careful with the dyes!). Don't freak. Your body has simply stop producing melanin at the root of the hairshaft. Yeah, not your entire skin! People who produce no melanin in their skin are elbinos.

graysome
I'm 27 years old and I've been getting gray hair down there since I was 18. I don't have a single gray hair elsewhere on my body or my head. I'm blonde so at first it wasn't super noticeable, but now it's basically completely gray and wiry. It sucks.
I just shave it all off despite my boyfriend's preference for pubic hair. I would let it grow out in order to dye it, but that would mean my boyfriend would see it, and there are some things that he just doesn't need to know about. *sigh*

tell a gray lie
tell your bf that because of the product you used to get rid of it...say nair...that it reacted with it somehow and now your grey down there. He probably won't even think twice about that explanation since men don't know much about a woman's beauty regiment. That way you can stop shaving since he prefers the hair. And if he doesn't like to gray and wants you to get rid of it, at least he'll think its just a chemical reaction and not something freaky going on with you.

Gray Pubic hair in my 20s...
I'm 23 years old and noticed that I had some gray hairs down there when my ex pointed it out to me a couple of years ago. It's really reassuring to know that I'm not the only one within my age group with this issue. I was starting to think that I was a freak of nature. Shocked As long as this is not indicative of any health issues, I'm fine with it.

I agree with the above post. It's cool to know when you aren't the only one. I am 24 and I have had gray pubes for a few years. I think that I had first started to notice them at age 22. At first I thought it was bad lighting, but after I would shave/pluck the pubes out, they would keep on growing back. Now, there are more grey pubic hairs than before. I don't have gray hairs anywhere else on my body. I am not particularly worried. For me, rather I have gray hairs on my private parts than on my head, but it's really great to know that I am not the only one going through this Smile
