i would think genetics play a lil part and maybe eating well.



The color of the hair is determined by the melanin pigments produced by melanocytes located in the hairs follicle. The melanin found in the hair reduces gradually with time due to the reduction of melanocytes, thus leading to the appearance of gray hairs. It remains unknown what leads to the reduction of the melanocytes reservoir and researchers are still trying to discover the causes.



It is believed that age and not getting enough nutrients to the hairs follicle causes graying hair. In order to prevent graying hair you need to start taking proper care of your hair by making sure it gents all the nutrients it needs. You can nourish the hair by eating healthy. If however you don't think you are getting enough nutrients from your food you can always turn to the help of vitamin supplements.
