Gray hair: In spite of the money spent on hair coloring relatively little money has been effectively spent looking at how to prevent gray hair. Stress and poor health have been associated with increased gray hair. Working to better respond to stress (exercise, mind body excercise, relaxation) exploiting unavoidable stress beneficially) and optimizing your health both would help but not totally prevent it.
