Premature graying of hair

Premature graying of hair for Asians is defined as graying of hair before the age of 25. In children it is usually because of family history. The time, speed and early onset can all depend on how it occurred in parents or grandparents. Sometimes it may indicate nothing other than simply an early onset of gray hair that we usually develop with age. Seldom does gray hair develop in children as young as eight years. However sometimes children grow single gray hairs at this age as well.sni
