What Causes Grey Hair?

Grey hair can be caused due to a number of factors, the most prominent and common ones are listed below:

  • Deficiency of essential vitamins is one of the major causes of grey hair.
  • Improper diet is another factor that causes grey hair.
  • Environmental factors like dirt, dust, and pollution can take a toll on your tresses and damage them, leading to grey hair.
  • An unhealthy scalp can also be a major cause of grey hair as the roots of your hair are not strong enough and are damaged. It also leads to hair breakage and weak hair apart from grey hair.
  • Stress is another factor that causes grey hair.
