Hello there...I can understand your concern. White 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.

Some people unfortunately develop grey hair early in life. It is genetic in most cases. There are medicines available for premature greying of hair. But response to treatment is very vairiable. You could get a prescription from a dermatologist near you and try for 3 to 6 months. If you find no improvement I would suggest you use a hair dye and not worry about it.
