There are millions of men and women that consider that the appearance of gray hairs is the first sign of aging, and they are ready to try just about anything to cover those hairs.
When the human body stops producing pigments, the hair starts to become colorless, and it eventually turns white. This can be prevented by nourishing your scalp and by protecting the base of your hair follicles. If the pigment and base cells are healthier, then you are lucky, because you will be able to avoid gray hair for a much longer period of time.
Gray hair can be caused by factors like:
- Hormonal imbalance
- Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Deficiency of some nutrients
- Genetic disorders
- By using concentrated dyes and electric hair dryers
