Hair greying can be termed as one of the first visible signs of aging. Aging has no better expression than the hair turning grey. Apart from the aging factor, premature hair greying can slowly banish your youthful looks. In that aspect hair greying is definitely a cause to worry. Here are some useful tips to treat your grey hair

 

What causes grey hair?

 

Intervening grey strands in your beautiful tresses is due to the cessation of colour pigment (melanin) in hair follicle. Pigment cells that are present at the base of the hair follicle stop producing pigment, which leads to loss of  original hair colour. Melanocytes are the cells that produce melanin, which is responsible for the colour of the body and hair. With aging, melanocytes lose their ability in producing pigments, which leads to greying.

Physical or mental stress, malnutrition and constant worrying are some of the causes for premature greying.

Apart from all this, genetics play an important role in hair greying. If your parents or young grandparents were victims of premature hair greying, there are ample chances for your hair to go grey prematurely. Washing hair in hot water,drying hair using an electric dryer and an unclear  scalp can also cause premature greying.

Questions & Answers

I should look at my mother's family to see if I am going to loose my hair - the gene comes from the maternal side.

Hereditary hair loss can be passed on by either parent, although the strongest influence is on the maternal side. The gene or genes responsible for this have not yet been identified and the pattern of inheritance is complex. If hair loss in the family, it is likely that you too will be affected. However there are other reasons for hair loss apart from heredity.

Losing an average of 40-100 hairs a day is normal - they just grow back again,

It is true for people who don’t have male pattern baldness, and there hairs that fall out will soon be replaced by new once. If you are suffering from hereditary hair loss, those hair often came from follicles that are shrinking and the new hairs emerging from these follicles will be thinner. Eventually the follicles shut down and no longer produce hair at all.
