Brief Answer:
Hi kindly read below

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Pramature greying is seen in nutritional deficiencies protein-energy malnutrition and diseases of chronic loss of protein. Copper and iron deficiency also can cause graying of hair. It's not possible to reverse white hair if the cause is genetic. Once your hair follicles lose melanin, they can't produce it on their own. As melanin production slows, your hair turns gray, and then white when melanin production has completely stopped. Ensure you have an adequate level of Vitamin D3 and Vitamin B12.
Is it true if you get grey hair at early age then your cells will get old early and you die?-no scientific basis and considered as myth.
Maintaining the nutritional balance can help reduce frequency.
