Top Factors that contribute to premature grey hair
|Ageing process||Hair strands on our head gradually lose melanin and become grey or silver or white as we get older. This is because the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die and there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle. This biological process hastens up in some people leading to premature greying of hair|
|Genetics||When and how much melanin the body produces is determined by genetics. If you start to grey early, blame it partly on the genes! Scientists have identified 18 genes that appear to influence the look and feel of hair. Dormancy of these genes in some people contributes to grey hair at early age|
|Stress||Stress hormones mediate the signals instructing melanocytes to deliver melanin to keratinocytes and if that signal is disrupted, melanin will not deliver pigment to your hair. Doctors will tell you that they observe accelerated graying among patients under stress|
|Food||Foods that contain Monosodium glutamate (MSG) or Agino moto, Refined Sugar, junk foods, artificial colors & sweetners, bleached white flour are a strict NO. Remember vitamin deficiency, and smoking also effects graying of hair. On the other hand fresh greens vegetables that are good source of vitamin B6 and B12, Chocolates that are rich in copper(copper is known to produce melanin), strawberries and raspberries, salmon known to fight grey hair, almonds are good to prevent grey hair|
Chemical build up in Hair – It is now scientifically established in medical fraternity that hair turns gray due to a natural buildup of hydrogen peroxide in hair follicles, which causes oxidative stress and graying. Normally, an enzyme called catalase breaks down the hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen. However, as you get older, you produce lower amounts of catalase, which allows the hydrogen peroxide to build up. This buildup can damage the pigment-producing cells, leading to gray or white hairs
