Welcome to health care magic
prolonged stress is known to cause pre mature greying of hair.deficiency of minerals & vitamins can also be the cause.So first study hard ,but don`t take tension for study.Also start multivitamins regularly

Hello Toobeeraj,
Welcome to healthcaremagic forum.
Premature greying of hair can be because of your stress and late night reading (in your case). But premature greying of hair also occurs in nutrients deficiency like minerals e.g. calcium, phosphorus, etc. also due to excessive salty diet.
so for this i would suggest you diet rich in proteins and and salt restricted diet. and aplly castor oil once a week in your hair roots. and take homoeopathic medicine Nat Mur 1M once a week dose.
for further help contact:
take care,
Dr. Rooma Ramnani

Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

There is only one medicine available for premature graying of hair,and that is effective only if one is below 20 yrs of age.So you still have time to get back your black hair.
You can take calcium patothenate (100mg) daily for long .
