Hair dye: There is no known "cure" to premature greying hair, but there are ways to hide it. You can find them in the hair coloring section in the drugstore. If you choose the right color, no one will know that you are dying your hair.

Hair Health: First thing to know is that genetics plays the biggest role - we can't change our genetics. To reduce risks of early graying & hair loss: 1. Don't Smoke. 2. Correct Zinc or Vit B deficiencies. Vegans are at risk for Vit n B12 deficiencies. 3. Ensure that your thyroid is healthy. 4. Diets> Eggs are rich in biotin. Dark greens are high in Vit A & C.

Genetics: Our hair is generally preprogrammed by our genes to stop making pigment that gives it color. Rarely, a medical illness, stressors or medical treatments, like chemotherapy, can change our hair color or cause a lack of color(white or gray). Ask older relatives when they saw their first gray hair.
