Gray hair in my beard at 30? Does that mean Ill be prematurely gray?

Not necessarily.

Scalp_hair
It's pretty common for beards to gray faster than scalp hair, but early graying of the beard is not a reliable predictor of early graying of scalp hair.

Can you actually get old and develop gray hair if you are ill for long periods of time?

Gray hair

Hair_restoration
Yes. Persistent illness often leads both to nutritional deficiencies and to side-effects from medications. 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.

When I was 23, I found a gray hair strand. A few months ago, I found another one. I'm African-American and 27. What does this mean?

Early gray

Anderson Cooper on CNN turned gray at the age of 20 and many other people turn gray at an early age. That is what is happening to you as well.

I saw white hair in my beard how can we stop it?

Not yet

Gray_hair
at this point you can't stop white hairs from appearing. it is a part of aging. however it can also be due to stress, so if you try to lessen the stress, that can help. there was a cream out there that stops grey/white hair but it isnt on the market yet. see the following link http://www.forbes.com/sites/melaniehaiken/2013/02/28/a-pill-to-prevent-gray-hair-is-it-finally-on-the-way

Graying of hair is genetic. All the other purported causes are urban myths.

How to prevent gray hair?

Check below reasons

Gray_hair
& take action if indicated. Graying of hair is related to genetic predisposition. Age of initial graying is largely a matter of genetics. However stressors: nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy, traumatic head injuries, low vitamin B levels, zinc deficiency, severe illness, surgery & marked emotional stress may impact earlier depigmentation in people who are already predisposed to gray hair. >
