Grey Hair Caused By Smoking

A 2013 study published in the Indian Dermatology Online Journal found that smokers are two and half times more likely to develop premature gray hair than people who do not smoke. And smoking can go one step further in damaging your tresses: Certain chemicals in smoke break down in hair cells, which leads to baldness, according to the New York Times.

As smoking does add stress to the body (chemical dependency is always stressful to the body) and since smoking is known to contribute to premature aging, smoking can be - indirectly - responsible for causing gray hair.
