When a person starts to get grey hair is there anyway to make it stop like pulling it out?

In brief: No

Pulling out hair will simply give you a spot without hair until it regrows at that spot.
It will not change the color, which if it is grey, will regrow as grey.

In brief: Pulling it out won't

Stop if. Graying of hair is related to genetic predisposition.
Age of initial graying is largely a matter of genetics. However stressors: nutritional deficiencies, chemotherapy, traumatic head injuries, low vitamin b levels, zinc deficiency, severe illness, surgery ; marked emotional stress may impact earlier depigmentation in people who are already predisposed to gray hair. Aging is a significant.
