Hi Margo,

when someones hair turns grey or falls out is typically genetic, and therefore it is usually not a vitamin deficiency that causes it. Grey hair can also sometimes be caused by major stress or trauma, but the most likely reason is genetics.

For further advice please contact our cyberdoc here at Health24 as strictly speaking your son is not a teen!
