Having one or two grey hairs in a young child is uncommon, but it does occur from time to time. This often runs in families. One report states that it may occur when a child has a deficiency of Vitamin B12. This is unlikley to be the case with your daughter and more likely is that it has occurred before in your family and may have skipped a generation or two.Just cut off these two hairs and keep on doing it if they grow out again.
