If we pluck the White hair in our head.....it will go more white hair or it's good ? Then what we can do to readuce the white hair ?

Dye: Plucking grey/white will neither increase nor decrease those. The only practical solution is to dye your hair, if you are bothered by the white hair. I would recommend leaving things alone. Dying your hair for the rest of your life may not be what you wish to get into at your age. ...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?

My mom have some small blad parts in her head which have few white hair.is it normal?

This is not normal: Bald spots with white hair growth is usually associated with a condition called alopecia areata. Usually the hair doesn't turn white, but this can definitely happen. Vitiligo is another condition that can cause spots to grow with white hair but it's not usually associated with balding. I recommend that she get evaluated by a dermatologist. ...Read more

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 also. Check in with your doctor if you have related symptoms. ...Read more

How do I get rid of white hairs that are growing on head rapidly. I'm 25 years old male. Why I am getting white hair in this early age? Pls. help.

Some things: There are a few reported readily reversible causes like B12 deficiency and thyroid disease that can be readily tested for. There are some other less common causes like pigment diseases(think vitiligo), but again, these are rare. It's more likely that this is genetic. But you can do some things to help avoid worsening things, like avoid smoking and harsh chemical hair products. ...Read more

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

Random: Occasionally during development, a bodily part will develop in an unexpected location. You have a hair follicle below your eye which happens to produce a white hair. It is of no harm and obviously you can easily pull it out. If it really bothers you, your dermatologist can permanently get rid of it. ...Read more

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.
