May be other causes: Premature graying can occur, though it is usually genetic so you may be able to look at your family and see that you inherited it from a family member. There are other causes of hypopigmentation (decreased color) of a hair. Trauma, bacterial or fungal infection, chemical or sun bleaching, or other dermatology conditions can cause this as well.

I have premature white hair on my head. From past few months I have been observing a white hair in my moustache. Please suggest a solution for this?
It happens sometimes: Nobody knows how to stop hair from greying. Early greying may be hereditary, so a guy would have brothers, uncles, or a father with early greying. A doctor can evaluate to make sure there is no medical problem stressing the body. Then, hair coloring is the likely option, until a person gets old enough to not feel out-of-place wearing a head of grey. ...Read more

If I remove a white hair from my head does it bring two more white hairs in that same place? I m just 24 year old
Nope - 3 white hairs: Just kidding!!! That's just an old folk-tale. Pulling out white hairs does nothing to increase (replacement) number of white hairs. All it does is temporarily decrease white hair count by one. White hair is genetically determined. Aging plays a role, not teenagers or stress.
