Why does hair turn gray?



  1. 0 Votes

    Hair turning gray is a matter of genetics and age. Some people start to grow gray hair with age while some get them really young. “Melanin, a chemical produced by specialized cells within each hair follicle, is responsible for giving hair color.” As we age or sometimes early on in life, the pigment cells at the base of our hair follicles stop producing melanin; without the chemical, our hair turns white. This happens gradually for each strand of hair, thus the “salt and pepper” look which appears gray.
