Gray Hair- Restoring the natural color

Written by 

I'm 52 years old and my hair is turning grey. Is there any way of restoring my natural color besides hair coloring?

Whatever the stage of your life, going gray is an inevitable part of getting older. There are many causes for gray hair such as genes, age and medical conditions…factors completely beyond your control. The most common reason is age. As we age the cells that generate the color for our hair called Melanocytes degenerates and isn't able to feed the hair follicles as well as it use to. This will result in the pigment in the hair follicle to lose its color properties. The hair will end up losing all its color and become transparent.
The science behind our hair going gray is down to the cells in our hair follicles called Melanocytes. These little cells generate the pigment in our hair and they are usually healthy and generous in our youth. As we get older these Melanocytes start generating less pigment to the hair follicle giving the hair strand a slightly transparent appearance.
There are medical conditions that can cause our hair to go gray as well. These can be due to a B12 deficiency or a thyroid condition. In this case, we can help these cells from breaking down by following a healthy diet. Being deficient in B12 can also be a reason for your Gray hair. To prevent this you need to ensure you take regular dosages of B12 as well as folic acid and biotin. Some of us may be lucky enough to keep our natural hair color for a lot longer and will only end up with gray hair in our 50's and 60's. Whatever the stage of your life, going gray is an inevitable part of getting older.
Your hair will go gray and will increase in appearance over the next few years. Gray hair, in reality, is not a bad thing. It is part of a normal process.
