Hi Mr sathasivam, your concern is genuine. Hair fall more than 150 per day is abnormal. Stress can be one factor. But threre are other factors like Hereditory male pattern baldness, anaemia, thyroid problems etc. Greying at an early age can be hereditory but stress can contribute to it. U need to consult a dermatologist for further help.
