Results: of the 80 respondents, 57 respondents (71,2%) had premature canities. Based on bivariate analysis, it was obtained p value ≤ 0,05 for family history and stress, Based on multiavariate analysis, it was obtained p value ≤ 0,05 for family history (p value = 0,000), which means family history is the most dominants factors for premature canities.
