Gray hair alert!
Today, as I brushed my hair in front of my mirror, I had an epiphany. A shocking revelation. Tiny little gray hairs are growing on my hairline!
When I was younger, older folks swore people with gray hair are wiser. However, I don’t feel any wiser. I feel a lot older, though. I believe my hair is graying prematurely and I want to stop it.
Research suggests that stopping hair from turning gray prematurely is not entirely hopeless. You just have to learn and understand what causes it, and act on helping to delay or end it.
Your hair becomes gray when color-producing cells called melanocytes, which are responsible for hair color and pigmentation, cease to produce pigment.
A lot of people believe that stress causes your hair to turn gray. However, scientists claim that this has not been proven in studies yet. In fact, they still don’t know exactly why some younger people go gray. They seem to believe that genetics play a big role, which means that if your parents’ hair turned gray early, your hair is more likely to turn gray early, too.
Hiding and Stopping the Gray
1. If you want to conceal your gray hair immediately, you can opt to dye your hair. You can either have a professional do it for you or you can opt for DIY hair colors available in drug stores.
2. Diet plays a vital role to in hair health. Try to eat protein rich foods. Vitamin B12 deficiency has also been suggested to be a cause of premature aging. Eating leafy green vegetables, tomatoes and yogurt is a good way to combat this. Supplementing with vitamins like Melanplus Gray HairVitamins can also help in your battle against the gray!
3. You can either buy or order graying hair treatment. Hair lotions, oils, shampoo and conditioner have been developed and produced to specifically combat hair aging and improve hair health and vitality.
We will all eventually get gray hair at some point and we will eventually learn how to embrace it. As they say, your beauty is not determined by your hair color. Your joy of life is the true measure of what really makes you beautiful.
