I agree, dye them or embrace them.  And my husband would also say be happy you 'have' hair whatever color.Wink lol  Seriously though, Not knowing you, or your hair, Men esepcially, look very 'distinguished' with a few gray hairs. If you are lucky enough to have a 'streak'......

As my husband would say, "Be happy to have the white hairs.  It's better than being bald."  LOL  Seriously though, dying your hair is the only option.  Just be careful.  I've dyed mine before and "fried" it.  It took me about 6 months to get it back into shape.

I'd say you're ahead of the game if you're only recently seeing one or two white hairs at 38. I'll be 35 in another week and a ½ and have quite a few greys/whites I'm trying to cover more and more.

Catthee is right—either dye 'em or embrace 'em. ºÜº

I think that is the million dollar question. If anyone ever figures out how to keep from aging then they may become very rich selling the formula to the rest of us.

I'd say your only options are to stop aging or get hair dye. The hair dye seems to be the easiest solution in my opinion.
