The color of your hair depends on the pigment cells that are located at the base of each hair follicle. With age, these pigment cells die and their efficiency reduces. When the body stops producing pigments, hair starts becoming colorless, turning white. However, you can prevent gray hair by nourishing your scalp and protecting the base of your hair follicles. If your base and pigment cells are healthier, then you’ll be able to avoid gray hair much longer.
Many factors can contribute to the occurrence of gray hair, some of them being the following:
– Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
– Genetic disorders
– Hormonal imbalances
– Nutritional deficiencies
– The use of electric dryers and concentrated hair dyes
We all know that there are many different types of hair dyes on the market today, which are very useful in coloring your gray hair. Well, the good thing about these hair dyes is that they will color your gray hair – but, the bad thing about them is that they are loaded with chemical substances and they can damage your hair. So, your best option is to use all-natural products.
