Causes Of Early Grey Hair And Remedies

On the other hand, some people experience so much gray hair early in life that 60-70% of their hair turns white before the age of 50. This disease is considered unusual and is caused by a number of past and ongoing diseases.

2. Malnutrition

Vitamin B-12 deficiency can manifest itself in white hair at a young age. This vitamin is very important for your overall health. Strengthens and promotes healthy hair growth and color. Vitamin B-12 deficiency is linked to devastating anemia, a disease in which the body cannot absorb enough of the vitamin. Vitamin B-12 is necessary for the activity of red blood cells, which, like hair cells, carry oxygen throughout the body. Deficiency can damage hair cells and prevent melanin formation.

3. Protect your hair from the sun.
