Dear Flygal
Some people just gray earlier than others, taking vitamins or supplements won't help unless you have a deficiency.
It is often genetic - have any of your family members developed gray hair early in life?
Other causes could be due to thyroid disorders, vitiligo ( a skin condition where the skin loses pigment) , vitamin B12 deficiency, and anemia. Ask your GP to check for these with blood tests.
