Recently I moved from India to Riyadh, because the change in water my hair started becoming gray. Is there any remedy for graying hair due to water change?.
P.S: my age is 26 and am sure that this problem is not related with my age.

Natural dye: You may not want to use a chemical dye as this will just damage your hair worse.
Trying to wash out chlorine buildup. Which will not completely reverse the gray hair, but will help heal the hair and keep it healthy.
Chlorine and sun can cause split ends, which definitely add to a damaged look.
There is no complete reversal treatment, because of the amount of damage it does:
The reaction of melanin pigments with chlorine results in change of hair from natural colour (blond to black) to straw colour of keratin.
Chlorine removes natural oils covering hair resulting in loss of hair shine and flexibility, as well as making them more susceptible to mechanical damage.
Your hair probably became gray due to the chlorine in the water or other chemicals. Other factors such as diet, stress and etc can cause graying hair, but because you mentioned the water being the reason I focused on that.
Previously damaged hair
Chemically lightened hair(whitened)
Dry hair, thin or fine hair
Permed or relaxed hair
These hair types can get damaged faster and already in a way damaged.
Wearing a swimming cap to cover your hair
Wetting your hair before entering the pool and rinsing and washing well after with a good shampoo and conditioner to protect hair.
