Hair greying is considered to be an inevitable part of ageing. Change in hair colour occurs when melanin (a pigment that adds colour to hair) ceases to be produced in the hair root. New hair emerging from such root grows without colour; this is called greying of hair or Achromotrichia. This normally begins in the mid-twenties in men and late twenties in women although a lot of individual variation is seen. It is still not very clear why some people grey early and others later, but heredity plays a key role.
Common causes of premature greying of hair include family history, stress, severe ailments like typhoid that induce very high fever, autoimmune diseases, damage from inappropriate hair styling, wearing tight braids or ponytails, or using curling irons or dyes, nutritional deficiencies and thyroid imbalances. Bacterial or fungal skin infections, childbirth, burns, effects of certain drugs – such as those used for treating Cancer, excessive use of cosmetic hair products which may contain harmful chemicals, psychological trauma, radiation and environmental pollution are other prime reasons.
Scientifically proven treatments for premature greying are few. Most of them include excessive intake of medicines which may prove to be harmful for overall health. Thousands of unproven claims and products are available in the market, which are usually harmful and offer no definite evidence to be effective.
