5 Conditions That Make Men Grow Grey Hair Prematurely

Most people see their first gray hair in their 30s and have a significant amount in their 50s. But it's not uncommon for this process to start in your 20s with a weird gray or two. Whether you get that "premature" gray hair almost entirely depends on your genetics.

Although doctors and scientists have not found the exact cause, here are some conditions that can cause premature graying of hair.

1. Genetic factors

If a person has a history of premature graying in their family, there are chances of getting gray hair earlier in life.

2. Medicines

Some drugs such as chloroquine (used to treat malaria, mephenesin, a muscle relaxant, phenylthiourea used in DNA testing, triparanol used to lower cholesterol, and dixirazine used to treat various mental disorders are known to cause gray hair).

3. Stress – Stress is something that can happen to anyone at any time. The type of stress you experience determines how your body feels and looks, and what mood or behavior you develop when you experience this type of discomfort — whether emotional, physical, or both.

4. Smoking

The relationship between smoking and early lightening is not fully understood, but has been definitively observed in research for decades. Recent studies confirm that smokers are more likely to have gray hair before the age of 30 than the rest of the population.

5. Malnutrition

Several nutritional deficiencies are linked to premature whitening. For example, a lack of vitamin B12 can cause hair loss and promote the formation of gray hair. This vitamin is found in eggs, meat, poultry and dairy products. So if you are a vegan, vegetarian, or limit your protein intake, you may be at a higher risk of developing a B12 deficiency. Be sure to consult your doctor if you think this is the case.
