Gray Hair Prevention

Most of us realize we are getting older when gray hair starts to appear.  Premature graying may begin as early as the teens or twenties, but most for people it starts in their late thirties to early forties.  The majority of Caucasians will half about half of their hair gray at the age of fifty.   When it starts, grey hair is not usually welcomed.    

Why does hair turn gray?  Every hair follicle is surrounded by cells that contain melanin, a pigment that determines the color the hair.  The amount of melanin will determine whether the hair is blond, brown, black, red or anything in between.  As we get older the cells that contain melanin slowly die.  Less melanin means that the hair will be translucent and appear white, grey, or silver

Hair does not turn gray overnight.  It is a gradual process.  Once a person notices the first few gray hairs it may take ten or more years for the hair to really look gray.  Graying usually begins at the temples, spread to the crown, and finally moves around to the back of the head. 

Graying hair is inevitable, but it might be possible to slow it down with the right combination of vitamins and minerals.    B vitamins have been shown to be particularly helpful by in helping the hair cells continue to produce melanin.  Vitamin B and PABA, and Vitamin B12 are best for this.   When used in combination with folic acid they tend to work better.    

The other big complaint people have about gray hair is the way it feels.  It is usually dryer and may be course or wiry.  The right nutrients such as Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin E, and Vitamin B3 can help to counteract this as well as promote overall healthy hair.  Natural ingredients like jojoba oil and emu oil will also help to deep moisturize dry gray hair.
