Hai grey hair problem could be familial or nutritional deficiency. You observed black hair at the roots, so mostly it looks like a nutritional deficiency. Zinc and vitamin supplements will help for you, but it takes time. If it is not helping you, then meet a Dermatologist.

Hello there...I can understand your concern. Grey hair occurs due to 2 main reasons. One is hereditary. If it's due to hereditary, then no treatment will help it. You have learn to live with it. Secondly it can be due to vitamin deficiency. In such a case, supplementing with the required vitamins might help the cause. But it will take about 4 to 6 months to see the treatment. Kindly consult a dermatologist. They will examine you and then treat accordingly.
