Whilst on the topic of grey hair, here are some interesting facts!

The connection between smoking and grey hair 

Smokers are more prone to developing grey hair early in life than non-smokers. The Indian Dermatology Online journal published a study in 2013 which revealed that smokers are 2 and a half times more likely to grow grey hair earlier than non-smokers.

 

Grey hair may indicate you need more vitamins

Grey hair may also be an indication that your body is low in certain vitamins. Low levels of vitamin D3, serum calcium and serum ferritin are common among those who have gone grey very early, while a low level of vitamin B12 is known to cause loss of hair pigmentation.

Grey hair and your genes!

Look at your parents carefully…when did they develop grey hair? It’s likely you will turn grey around the same time as your parents did.  Caucasians usually develop grey hair in their mid-30s, blacks in their mid-40s and Asians develop it in their late 30s.
