    I'm CC at rs12203592.

    My first gray hairs showed up in my 30s and I've been slowly going silvery since then (I'm now 45) but I still have plenty of color left all the same (naturally sandy blond).

    I hear that from stylists when I get my hair cut--such a beautiful silver! One stylist was horrified when I mentioned maybe I wanted to try dying my hair again. On the other hand I've noticed none of them are going gray on purpose!

    I have CC at rs12203592, although I have a lot of gray hair. Maybe being sixty years old has more to do with it than anything else. I remember starting to see a lot of gray hair on the apron the barber tied around me when cutting my hair when I was 37. It was somewhat shocking then. Now I'm glad my hair is still there to go gray. Better gray than bald.

    Fascinating subject! My Dad had most of his hair (a receding hairline though) and just a little salt and pepper when he passed at age 83. I am now 66 and look at lot younger partly because I have hair just like my Dad's - very little gray and lots of hair. I too have a receding hairline.

    My wife is 16 years younger than I and has had gray hair for the past 12 years or so. She wears it long, gray and proud. It is odd though because when we are out people think she is older than I.

    I guess I don't have the gray hair gene.
