    I am CC at rs12203592. There are probably other genes involved since I've been greying for a while now (I'm in my 20s). This is probably more relevant for Latin Americans and some Europeans.


    Among the people I manage, only my Italic-like mutt has a T (CT). Not greying much at 40, but bald.

    Ditto, my Amazigh akhoya. No graying on my part (granted, I'm pretty young; 20 turning 21 this year) whilst my father does have a lot of grayed hair but I'd say this is mostly due to his rough life-style nowadays whilst my recently deceased paternal grandfather had mostly black hair peppered with some gray well into his 80s and early 90s or so.

    rs12203592-CT I have started to turn gray, especially on my chest, beard and temples (started in late 20's).. Have not lost too much of my hair, so I think I will turn completely gray in a few years..

    I would take it with a grain of salt, I looked at my Turkish friends DNA and she is CC, but she is nearly 100% gray, started in her 20's like me, but she has turned gray much faster then me..at least on her head, doubt she has much chest hair to compare with me :p

    I have CC. Not many people have grey hair on my fathers side of the family. My father is in his early 40th, and has a few grey patches, but it is not very noticeable. Don't know if this counts, but grey hair in males on my mothers side of the family is very common. Greying can start from anywhere between 20 and 30. In most cases, by the time they reach their mid 40th, their hair is fully grey.

    Unlike my father who was noticeably grey by 40 I have only a little well into my 40s. Am more like my mother in the respect and I also share her very thick hair and colour - my dad's being much more siky and darker.

    Actually I am CC and at my age my father was fully gray while I can say 15% of my hair is gray. They say applying garlic can prevent gray hair and balding. I haven't tried it yet due its intense odor.
