Hi XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing to us.
The natural ageing process of graying of hair usually begins as you approach your thirties. If it occurs in young age ie in your teens or twenties, it is called premature canities.
The causes for greying of air are hereditary, nutritional, smoking, stress, thyroid disorder, anemia, chronic illness etc
Most of the times greying of hair is genetic. If its genetic with treatment response might be suboptimal.
So firstly, I would like to know if its genetic.
Since how long are you having it.
Approximate number of gray hairs
Any chronic illness, stress, nutritional disorder, thyroid ds
If you smoke.

Answer these queries, so that I can suggest an appropriate treatment.
Take care

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for providing the details
For your greying hair, you may follow these suggestions
Take a PABA and other essential mineral and vitamin based supplement like PABATAB BZ once daily
Apply altris gel( melitane based gel) once in a day over affected area.

As you have a family history of early greying of hair, do not expect much response. These medicines need to be taken for long. In your case these might delay further greying but wont turn your grey hair black.
Hope this helped

Brief Answer:
you can get it from any chemist shop

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for writing back.
Altris gel is available at all good chemist shops. It is manufactured by alembic pharma.
As far Amway supplement is conccerned, one has to see whether it contains calcium pantothenate, PABA,copper, selenium, zinc, biotin or not. These essential micronutrients for hair.
Prior to starting any treatment, I would always recommend a visit to nearby dermatologist .
