Why is my hair turning grey?
« on: 17/10/2009 01:49:37 »
Im 22 years old.  Im in the marine corps thus a generally stressful environment. lately ive been finding gray strands of hair on my head and im thinking im too young to be going gray. I was wondering if there was any possible explaintion for this, i heard stress can cause gray hair but thought i would try to get other opinions.  thanks!

I'm 27, been finding white hairs since I was 21/22... in my case I think it's laregely genetic (my dad's hair's been largely grey longer than I can remember.
