What is the relationship between stress and gray hair?

Is there a connection as I am going gray and I am not that old but am stressed a lot. What do you think?

Answer by Tracy

Hi
I don't think there is a direct connection. Most of the time gray hair is determined by genetics and family genes.

However stress can contribute to illness and illness can make you look older before your time, so the best option is to avoid stress or at the very least manage it on a day to day basis to prevent it causing future complications.

Best to try and put into place some stress relief into your daily life to prevent stress taking over and causing other problems.
