CAUSES OF PREMATURE GREYING OF HAIR
If you are sporting more grey hair on your head than your peers, you would be well aware how frustrating it can be to have to hide your silver strands or patches. Let’s look at the causes of premature greying of hair starting with factors that are out of our control, the traits we were born with.
Genetics play a significant role in determining whether a person starts greying early. If either of your parents experienced early onset of grey hair, chances are that you could too. Different ethnicities begin greying at different ages as well.
Caucasians typically notice the first appearance of grey strands in their mid-thirties, Asians in their late-thirties while African-Americans tend to start showing white hair only in their mid-forties. And then there are factors that are intrinsic within us such as hormones; our body’s chemical messengers. We cannot alter our hormones but there are certain things we can do to influence them by adjusting our diet and lifestyle.
Stress management is important to delay greying of hair. Our body releases the hormone cortisol when we are stressed, contributing to premature greying. Men with gray hair equally feel that having premature grey hair is as frustrating as how most women feel with grey hair.
External factors can also cause premature ageing and greying of hair, the biggest culprit being pollutants. The chemicals and toxins from cigarettes for instance, can cause early greying by damaging the hair follicles. The free radicals produced by smoking are damaging to the melanin cells that are responsible for hair pigmentation. Vitamin and nutrient deficiencies are often associated with early onset of greys.
Lack Of Vitamin
Lack of vitamin B12, vitamin D and zinc in the body may result in grey hair / white hair. While taking hair-friendly supplements is a good habit to adopt to prevent early greying, you could also kick a few habits that accelerate graying like regularly washing hair with hot water and drying hair with electric hair appliances, using hair dryers and straightening / curling irons on high heat for long periods of time.
Chemical Hair Dyes
Most people with premature greying problem would resort to colouring our grey hair / white hair / silver hair with chemical hair dyes. If this is true for you, you would also know how exasperating it is to constantly need to cover them up, as hair grows pretty quickly. In the long run however, repeatedly colouring gray hair with chemical dyes to make them less visible would exacerbate hair ageing, causing even more grey hair to develop.
Having said all of the above, there are medical conditions that cause premature grey hair which include Vitiligo and Alopecia Areata. In this case, a proper diagnosis by a medical professional is required, followed by an appropriate treatment plan.
