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. It's not uncommon in Caucasian men to see some white hair in the 30s.

Vit B12 deficiencyccan contribute too ...Read more

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

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

Gray hair: 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. ...Read more

Hi I discovered about 5 grey hairs in my head, I'm 19. My parents did not grey early. Does this mean I have white hair by 20s. Does stress cause this?

Pre-mature graying: It is believed that hair turning white is caused by the production of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicle. While stress can do many many things, there has been no direct linkage that I know of correlating one with the other. ...Read more

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

Not yet: 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.
