Are grey hairs and hair loss related in anyway. Can grey hairs signal hairloss?

No one has nothing to do with another.

There is absolutely no correlation between graying hair and hair loss.

Hair loss and grey hair often occur in the same individual, but one does not influence the other.

Both are changes in hair associated with aging, but obviously - especially in the case of hairloss - they aren't limited to men who we would consider to be old. Lots of younger men, including teenagers, lose hair long before they show signs of greying. Likewise, there are many older men who have gone fully grey but were blessed with genetics which allowed them to keep their thick, youthful hair.
I can't see any direct correlation between the two at all.
