Greying of hair

It’s stressful enough to see your hair turning white at an early age. Stress might play a key role in turning natural black hair to white.

But, in most cases, it’s simple genetics. “Gray hair caused by loss of melanocytes (pigment cells) in the hair follicle.

This happens as we age and, unfortunately, there is no treatment that can restore these cells and the pigment they produce, melanin,” according to a dermatologist.

“Genetic factors determine when you go grey.There is nothing that can be done medically to prevent this from happening when it is genetically predetermined to happen.”

That doesn’t mean environmental factors — such as stress — don’t play a role.
