Grey hair - cure?

I am a 20-year-old male and have noticed that my hair has started to turn grey. Are their any treatments to prevent this at such a young age or to slow it down?

I am not aware of any treatments that are of proven benefit for the prevention of greying of the hair. In making this comment I am aware that there are many websites on the Internet that make extravagant claims for the most unlikeliest of treatments. Premature greying of the hair is very often a familial trait and there is no solution to the problem other than dyeing of the hair.
