Everyones hair turns grey when they grow older, it’s part of life. It happens because as people grow older the pigment which makes our hair black gradually dies, when there are fewer pigment cells the hair obviously turns white or grey. But in some cases people as young as 18 have been seen with grey hair. There are a number of reasons for that. Reasons such as:

1. You inherit it from your parents

Children who’s parents hair turned grey at an early age will pass on that gene to their children. So if your parents had grey hair at an early age guess who else will?
