Lady Gaga Goes (Faux) Gray

Award-winning singer Lady Gaga emerged in London last Friday sporting GRAY hair! Obviously, this is a case of some serious hair dye - but it got me thinking: how much do most people know about real gray hair?

For instance, did you know that most Caucasians start developing gray hair in their mid-30s? That gray hair takes longer for other ethnicities - for instance, African-Americans, on average, have until their mid-40s before they start going gray.

A good discussion about the causes of gray hair can be found on AOL's Health page:

So, when should we expect Lady Gaga to start going gray - for real? She was born in 1986, so best guess is 2021.
