Enjoy it: It's a novelty. Chances are you have what we call "poliosis", a non-problem that whitens patches or all of the hair from early in life. Many women will find it fascinating. If anyone makes jokes, tell them your great-grandfather was a polar bear. Or point out how popular white hair is on super-masculine men in those Japanese comic strips.

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
