The more you worry, the more you pass on that stress to her (I agree totally it's difficult but you will have to calm down if u donot want any new white hair) in betwn grey hairs are considered due to a vitamin deficiency called calcium pantothenate. Oral supplementation with it helps a lot. If not in correcting the damage then atleast in preventing new ones from changing colour. Dose shld be adequate and to be given for atleast 3 months
