Genetics: Usually this is a genetic trait. Your mom or dad might have had some early greying. If it bothers you, and you want to grow out a beard, there are some hair coloring products that are designed for beards and facial hair. There isn't any way i know of to turn the grey hair back to it's original color permanently. ...Read more

I am 31 and I have grown some Grey hair in the middle of my scalp and also a few in the beard. This has happened just this year. What could be the reason I'm on Prozac 40mg for anxiety. I'm worried.

Likely ...: While stress has long thought to be a cause, research seems to suggest not so much. In all likelihood it is genetic for you.

Vit B12 deficiencyccan contribute too ...Read more

A common example is patients who have cancer where their chemotherapy causes severe hair damage. Think of chronic illness as a process that accelerates aging. Focusing on a healthy diet with routine vitamin supplementation is probably the best thing one can do in this situation. ...Read more
