grey hair

Morning

I' m a 22 year old student. I have alot of grey hair on the right side of head. Is this totally hereditary or could there be a outside factor?

My bad habits include:
1)Drinking(student, so might be alot)
2)Sometimes smoking(have smoked weed)
3)I take seretide and nasonex
4)used to be on Roaccutane

otherwise I eat healthy, take mutli-vitamens and exercise often enough.

Thank you
Kind Regards
Russell

Hallo Russel
Grey hair may be caused by vit B deficiency or thyroid hormone disorders, just let your doctor do a medical check up with some blood tests to exclude possible problems. Has your father or grandfathers develop grey hair early?

I had my thyroid tested last year.

I dunno if they experienced grey hairs as young as I have but all of my uncles(3 of them) have grey hair. I just hate the idea of having grey hairs at such an early age. Its almost depresssing.

Thank you
Kind Regards
