The main reason for the grey hair is genetic i.e. the offspring is more prone to have grey hair earlier in life if its parent has the grey hair at early ages.
Deficiency of vitamin B12, C, E, copper, zinc, smoking s also one of the factors which is responsible for premature graying of hair. One reason is that smoking is the source of development of free radicals in the body of the smoker and these free radicals cause oxidative stress in the body, leading to decrease in the pigmenting capacity of the melanin and resulting in graying of hairs.
