Besides being hereditary why am I getting white hair(s) at the age of 27? :confused:
Thanks, Kevin Reddrick

  • Hi Knreddrick. I think about these things from a traditional Chinese Medicine perspective. There, white or gray hair can be caused by too much sex, drugs, overwork, or lack of sleep.

  • Every youngish president of the U. S. has undergone significant hair lightening during the 4 years in power. Is your job as stressful as theirs?

In extremely rare cases hair color may change due to a traumatic event but certainly not because of stress on the job.
