According to the opinion of the experts, it should be taken care of if you find gray hair at a very young age.
Time is ” charging” bill to each and every one of the parts of the body. The hair is not saved before and it demonstrates it with the exit of the gray hair as a result of the loss of melanin (pigment in charge of giving color to the hair, the skin and the eyes) for the chronological time of each individual.
Dr. Lidia Trasobares, head of the Department of Dermatology at the Hospital Universitario Príncipe de Asturias, Madrid, affirms that the appearance of gray hair before the age of 20 is considered early gray hair, which can be hereditary or can be associated with autoimmune diseases.
Causes of early gray hair
1. Coronary heart disease
A study of 545 men revealed that people with a higher degree of hair whitening had a higher risk of coronary heart disease, it is believed that it is due to the similar mechanisms they share, such as alteration in DNA repair, oxidative stress and senescence of cellular mechanisms.
Coronary artery disease develops when the heart’s main suppliers of blood, oxygen, and nutrients are damaged .
It is a disease caused by the loss of melanocytes (pigmentation of skin, hair and eyes) that affects 0.5-1% of the world population of any age, race, sex or ethnic group. It usually appears between 10 and 30 years of age, although it is not a condition. Although it is not a serious condition in itself, it can have considerable psychological consequences for the patient. The natural course is slow and progressive.
This evil appears due to the deficient intake of this vitamin or B complex in the daily diet, according to the Dermatologist of the General Hospital of Zone 14 IMSS in Jalisco, Mexico Ana Rosa Alvarado Rivas, which helps the nervous system to have a good digestion, prevents skin irritation and having it bright and clear, delays hair aging, among other things. Therefore, its low or no intake can cause severe years both internal and external, including early gray hair.

4. Waardenburg syndrome
It is characterized mainly by presenting sensorineural deafness (hearing loss derived from an injury to the inner ear or the nerve that connects the ear to the brain) and light color in the skin, hair and eyes regardless of the ethnic group that the affected person belongs to. It can be inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, meaning that only one of the two parents is the one that transmits the defective gene to the child.
When the human body is subjected to continuous and prolonged periods of stress on the body and brain, the body interrupts the production of melanin, which causes the appearance of gray hair. You can observe this when a person receives bad news and their mood (sadness, anguish, worry) are reflected in their hair.
