Welcome to the ehealthforum. I am glad to help you out. this premature graying of vaginal hair can be due to genetics or hereditary factors, malnutrition and a diet deficient in vit B , smoking ,thyroid disease, stress and anxiety, unclean condition of the vagina etc.

Take a healthy diet and keep yourself stress free. If the symptoms persist then get other causes ruled out.

I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
