No: It is common in people starting in the 20s. The best and easiest thing to do is hair coloring.

Yes.: Premature gray or white hair can be avoided with better rest, less stress, better diet, avoidance of smoking, exercise and potentially vitamin B12 . Greying or whiting of the hair is part of the aging process. It can also be camouflaged with hair dyes once the process has begun.
