Don’t like the 50 shades of grey your hair is becoming? Getting difficult to see the signs of your fading youth? Experts say, in today’s date, premature hair greying is becoming a problem as common as cough and cold. We thought that hair greying only happened to age-old people but those times are bygone now. In the present day, we see it among teenagers and adults as well, due to high levels of stress and pollution.
So what is the grey hair solution? Let’s first understand why the greying of hair occurs. Hair greying was considered to be a sign of aging but today the scenario is a little different. Your hair starts growing at the end of your hair follicle. This contains pigmentation cells. These are called Melanin and are responsible for giving the color to skin, hair, and eyes. This Melanin is naturally produced by your hair follicles. The higher the Melanin produced, the darker will be your hair color and vice versa. With the growing of age, the production of these pigmentation cells, Melanin decreases. This results in lessening of the intensity of hair color and eventual loss of hair color in the longer run. When this decrease in Melanin count occurs at an early age, it’s called Premature Greying. This is why even 20 year olds today face the problem of hair greying.
First sight of grey hair can also be a pride for some who embrace it as a badge of grace and growing older. But let’s not forget that it is accompanied with various factors. When the hair strand loses pigmentation, it also becomes rough, wavy and hard. Also the thin composition of hair, making you bid a bye to the beautiful volume. It is recommended that one should start taking measures for Premature Hair Greying as early as 18 years of age.
The causes of a salt & pepper head can be many. There is hair greying due to dietary deficiencies like vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency, chronic protein loss, and copper deficiency. Hypertension, stress, and anxiety are also leading causes of premature greying of hair. Accompanied by daily pollution which leads to weakening of strands and hair greying.
