People can get gray hair at any age, ranging from teenagers, people in their 20s and above.
According to Medical News Today, the human body has millions of hair follicles or small sacs lining the skin.
Gray hairs aren't super-common for people in their twenties and thirties, so it's natural that you might start to freak out a little if you spot some.
Unfortunately, premature grays happen, and there are a few reasons for them.
But whether those pesky hairs come about later in life or earlier, they're telling us far more than we realize about our bodies and our health.
If you think you're going gray unusually early, there are a number of possible reasons why. Smoking, for one, has been linked to the early onset of gray hair. Environmental factors like ultraviolet rays and air pollutants may also be partially to blame.
In regards to that here is what gray hair says about your health;
1.Gray hairs come about as a result of a lack of pigment
2.Those who go gray early often have lower levels of D3 and B12 vitamins.
3.Gray hair has also been linked to heart disease.
