Some people finds it pleasant to grow grey hair, while some hate it so much that they can go to any length just to get it off their hair. After researching see what I found.

Causes Of Premature Gray Hair.
It’s no longer speculation that there are tons of factors why one starts growing premature gray hair. Here is why hair black turn gray from experts . In order not to make you wait too long, lets take a look and see what I found.
Hereditary is one of the major and most common cause of premature grey hair in 60% of men, women, boys and girls. Situations like this gray hair doesn’t just appear, it gradually grows with the person right after birth and there is no remedy to reverse the white hair. It’s either you just leave it like that or you apply hair dye or shampoo, because it will still come back months or years later no matter what you do.
2. Low Or No Melanin Production.
The cells in our hair follicles called “Melanocytes” produces alot pigments, but Melanin pigment is entitled give our hair its color. In general, low melanin present, makes the hair color lighter, which is next to gray, while the more melanin produced, the darker the hair color.
Theconversation wrote this “There is no evidence to link the onset of greying to
stress , diet or lifestyle.” but how true is this? The type of stress one is going through is either little or big time stress. We agree little stress can’t make your hair turn grey, but big time stress do. You might ask how? When you overstress yourself for one month, you will notice that it’s making you to grow old and during this time your hair is prone to turn to white. To back up my research read this.
“Stress won’t cause you to go gray directly, but stress is implicated in a lot of skin and hair issues.” During an illness, for example, people can shed hair rapidly. And hair you lose after a stressful event like getting chemotherapy may grow back a different color”– Dr. Roopal Kundu, associate professor in dermatology at Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine.
If you still doubting me, stress yourself for some months and thank me later. Lol.
4. Lack Of Nutrition And Vitamin Deficiency.
Vitamin B-12 is an essential B vitamin. It is needed for nerve tissue health, brain function, and the production of red blood cells. Another name for vitamin B-12 is Cobalamin. Deficiency in one system is as a result of lack of nutrition. The food you eat isn’t made to just satisfy your stomach. As a human you need to be chemically balanced in order to be fit. If you are suffering from Vitamin B-12 deficiency, you can visit any expert nutritionist to prescribe the food and supplements that you might need.
5. Aggressive Hair Creams And Dye.
No doubt that some hair cream or hair dye darken or bleach your hair, I am a victim of this. It happened years back when I used one hair cream that was imported from Thailand on my hair, after one month, my black hair started fading to brown. I was like what the hell is wrong with my hair. I stopped using the hair cream and boom, my black, oily and shinny was back after sometime. Same thing can happen if you use some dye or hair cream that are harsh. Am not saying you should not use hair cream or dye your hair, but you should apply sense and caution to know that there are some cream or dye that can make your hair turn white or gray later.
This is yet to be proven, but while researching I noticed that most experts mentioned smoking as one of the causes. In reality I think it’s one of the causes of premature gray hair growth. But we are yet to confirm it.
At What Age Should I Consider My Gray Hair Premature.

Onion juice itself is highly rich catalase enzymes and studies have also shown that catalase enzyme helps in neutralizing hydrogen peroxide and therefore can make white hair turn black again naturally. When applying onion juice ensure that every part of the affected area is touched, Wash after one hour and that’s all.
