The science behind premature grey hair

You call it grey hair... They are the stress, zinc + vitamin B12 deficiency and autoimmune disorder's highlights!

The science behind premature grey hair

With the advancement in age, there are a lot of changes that are taking place inside the human body that includes degeneration of various body organs, thinning of muscle mass, bones becoming brittle or the hair that shows a vivid colour change from their original colour to white. But sometimes, the colour change of hair can be premature that is before age and many factors contribute towards it.

Causes

1. Genetic makeup

 It all depends on your genes, and unfortunately, they can't be changed. The only solution is to colour them.

2. Stress

Tensions, insomnia and anxiety can also cause the hair to turn white.

3. Vitamin B12 deficiency 

Vitamin B12 is a major contributor towards the hair growth and hair follicle colour whereas the deficiency makes the hair go white.

4. Autoimmune disorders 

In some cases, the body attacks its own immune system for example cases of vitiligo.

5. Zinc deficiency

Zinc deficiency causes the hair to turn white. Vitamin B12 is a major contributor to hair growth.
