No. Most of it is to do with the genes. Look at your mother and father. If they have gray hair then you'll get it too. Sometimes head injuries will damage the pigment of the scalp and gray hair can occur in that spot. Straightening your hair yourself without a professionals advice is very hard on the hair and if you can stop! Even blow-drying your hair is hard on it as is hot weather. Just like your face have a day or two where you wear no make-up and let your skin breath. Hair should get a rest too. Some people don't know that they should have 3 different types of shampoos on the go. The hair can get too use to one shampoo and you may find the frizzies happening. If you are of black origin then it's quite popular to straighten hair. To give your hair a rest buy a wig! Wigs are really in fashion and if you go to a good wig shop no one would know the difference if you wore one. A good case is Oprah. She always looks good, but does wear wigs at times.

It depends on how you have the straightening done. You need to find a professional on hair straightening if you want it, and be very careful when you do it at home. At home you should brush your hair 100 times after you get out of the shower and then use a straightener meant to turn wet hair straight. Then put in a very strong holding hairspray.
