I'm a teenager & I'm starting to have grey hairs already. I mean they're just popping up everywhere. Is that healthy? What is it caused by?

However, if it's coming up in a specific grouping or pattern, that's a problem. If you're turning wholly gray, you may need to consult with your doc or a derm. A lot may also depend on genetics. If your dad went gray early you may too. ...Read more
