Gray hair can start as early as your 30s

Everyone will eventually experience gray hair. Genetics can be a major factor, but the real fact is, your hair does not really "turn" gray, according to Harvard Health. When your hair is produced by a hair follicle, the color is whatever it is. If your hair is brown, for example, it will not turn into a different color, but rather the hair follicles generate less color as you grow older. As your hair regenerates, the regrowth will most likely come in gray in color. Gray hair can start as early as 35 years old.

So the question is, should you color your hair, or go gray?  Well, the choice is entirely up to you. It's a matter of personal preference, and we agree with Richards' fans—the star would look absolutely amazing either way. But we are loving this star's dye job, and what we love even more is the fact that she shared it with all her fans to see.
