i think that would be because of your genes... i know some friends who have white hair even when we were teenagers... and she's got plenty of it, really it has to do with her family as her mom had the same issue, she told us.

A person has white/red/black/brown/any color hair from birth and that is due to the genes... But the question is why a person with black hair is graying earlier in life?

That's not 100% true. I'm a redhead and my grandpa, who was a redhead too, had more pinkish hair than grey. But to be honest, grey hair can look really good on a person!

There are scores of reasons for early ( not yearly) graying of hair. Reasons for graying varies from person to person and their respective life styles.[b][/b]

I have not noticed white hair any younger than before. Is this a recent trend? I always thought it was due to heredity. LOL of course we do see in the movies a frightening event can turn hair white overnight..but I think that's mostly just in the movies...

Most probably it is in their genes. I saw few young people having grey hairs. or maybe due to sun exposure or might be caused by harmful chemicals. There are many reasons why young people have grey hairs.

There are several factors that contribute to early graying of hair. if you come a family of 'early graying of hair, 50- 60 percent , you would likely to have it too. Now early age can be relative. Twenty five years old to some is really very young but to some, its old enough. Well, whatever is that early, the type of work also can also cause the graying of hair. I for one, only start to have white hair when i reached my early forties. Comparing with my other friends, they start to have white even at the age of 21. Another factor is food. According to studies, food rich in pantothenic acid and niacin helps prevent having white hair. We get niacin from lean meats, liver, poultry, milk and leafy green vegetables in general, good nutrition. Proper nutrition helps in maintaining the bodily functions and thus preventing us from getting unusual illnesses at an early age. One is the graying of hair. Just eat a blanced diet everyday and its good for your body.

maybe it is because of stress. but then in our family, having white hair at an early age is very natural because it runs in the genes. we have to dye our hair brown or black once a year.

It is because now a days, there has been a great change in eating habits. Now people are not eating hygienic food. Especially, youngsters...They like fast-foods like pizza and burger... This bad eating habits leads to protein deficiency which results into health problems including graying of hair at early age... Of course, now the life has more stress. Young people have many stressors related to their studies, relationships, image,etc.
