Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

I can understand your concern.

Premature greying of hair is an extremely common problem these days.

It is increasingly seen in younger individuals.

It’s a difficult thing to control or treat.

Calcium pantothenate is thought to arrest the progression but it may not be too effective.

I would recommend that you take supplements containing calcium pantothenate twice a day for 3 months and see if it helps.

Also taking iron iron and multivitamin supplements will be helpful.

You will need to use either hair colour or XXXXXXX to colour the grey hair.

Also in case your hair is dry, it will make sense to oil it daily.

Hope my recommendations are helpful to you.

Regards.
