While we may not think about wrinkles and grey hair when we are young, the reality is that eventually, we all will have both.
Some of us, however, fall into the unlucky group of people who experience premature grey hairs. For the longest time, stress was mythicized as the cause of grey hair, but this couldn't be further away from the truth.
So, what causes our hair to turn grey before it should?
This is the number one reason for getting grey hairs. If one of your parents went grey earlier in their lives, chances are you will too. Can't do anything about this one!
Smoking on the regular is known to cause premature greying. Stay off those cigarettes - do your hair and lungs some good.
If you’ve got heart disease and your hair is grey, it’s a sign of worsening heart disease.
