Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.
I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Most common cause for premature greyish and hair fall is lack of vitamins and malnutrition. Apply Minoxidil ointment as advised by your doctor. Have healthy diet---rich in fruits and vegetables. If symptoms persist, consult a dermatologist and get evaluated. Wishing you good health.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
