Why do i have grey hair? and Why did I start getting grey hair at such a young age?

I'm 19 and i started getting grey hair at the young age of 13. Now its at the point where i can't hide it anymore which does not bother me its just frustrating that im so young and have grey hair. My mom and boyfriend are always pointing it out which is so embarrassing but so funny at the same time. Can someone please explain to me why i got grey hair at such a young age? What are ways to stop the grey with out using harsh chemicals and dyes?

Lack of protein can spur grey hairs. Post-pregnancy hormones frequently will cause massive hair loss replaced by patches of grey, but I'm guessing that doesn't apply. Some birth control pills or other meds can produce similar hormones though. Personally, I've always wanted shiny grey hair. If you feel odd dying it, you can do hormone therapy. It probably is a high cost and not worth it, but it's up to you. (I don't know if docs would/could do it, but I do know the technology exists to manufacture/extract the needed hormones.)

because all the meat you eat has stare rods in it to make the cows or pigs bigger but if you eat organic meat not treated with S.T.A.D. then you might stop getting gray hair!

Don't know but probably similar to why some guy's start going bald at around that age. It has to be something with hormones.

I would say it comes from somewhere in your bloodline .i started getting gray hair at the age of 15 . I was told that my father was born with a few strands of gray hair so that would be my guess

Adrenaline is actually the number one cause of gray hair. Are you a thrill seeker? If not then I'd put it down to over stressing this often gives you an adrenaline rush too.
