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.
Gray hair can be caused by many factors, such as:
- hormonal imbalance
- hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
- nutritional deficiency
- genetic disorders
- using electric dryers and concentrated hair dyes
Hair dyes are useful for coloring your gray hair, but they’re abundant in chemical substances and they can damage your hair. Therefore, the best solution is to use all-natural products!
