Causes And How To Prevent The Growth Of White Hair At A Early Age

By - - [ Health ]

The human body generally produces white hair as we mature, but surprisingly, most teen and young adults in their mid 20s tend to grow or develop white hair earlier than expected...

The human skin Contains millions of hair follicle lining the human skin... And this follicles generate hair and pigment cells  or colour that contains melanin... And over time, this  Follicles lose their pigment cell which causes decoloration..

The major cause of this could be The lack of vitamins... Vitamins like vitamin B-6, B-12, Biotin, vitamin D and vitamin E could cause the presence of white hair..

Let's not forget genetics... The structure of ones genetic cell or body could also cause the decoloration of hair.

The third cause on the list is one that can't be excaped by most Nigerians especially those working 5-9.. and this is STRESS..  oxidative stress has been said to be one of the greatest reason why most ppl even young adults develop gray hairy at an early stage...

Smoking also... For those who do, smoking in excess could cause the losses of the pigment cells that contains melanin for the hair coloration.

The continual application of chemicals like hair dye and shampoos also... Be careful when getting hair shampoos or creams because some hair react to the excess application of this chemicals and could cause graying.

Sometimes, grey hair doesn't come with age. If you have a family history of people with grey hair at an early age, then you are bound to have it too. 

Adding dyes will only spoil the structure of your hair and infact encourage the growth of more grey hair.

All grey hair are not sign of someone aging, some come as a result of stress or family trait, dyeing the hair will only make it look somehow, because a stage will come when the structure of the hair will be destroyed, one should dress it in a beautiful manner.

My younger sister is just 16 and she has mostly white hairs on her head which always makes her not to be confident within herself even uptill now. She's young buh she has it, so having white hairs doesn't always mean your stresses up or getting old, it can be just the nature of your body growth or family genes.

That's an awesome post, I have up to five friends with grey hair. But I guess some are hereditary tho. Because two of those friends of mine do eat well and rest well, yet, they have grey hairs. And another question, I have a friend with a golden hair, is that also an effect of a cause?

Having grey hair at an earlier age is hereditary in nature and this goes from generation to generation, but in some cases people acquire these through applications of chemicals to the hair like dyes, hair creams etc which some of these generate an after effect causing the hair to become grey.

People need to know that it's not only aging that causes Grey hair.. Stress and other factors can lead to Grey Hair.. I know a colleague that had Grey hair at the age of 19.. A good friend of mine.. Using too many hair products can weaken and lead to damage of hair.. But great post otherwise.,

It's not all grey hair that means someone is aging or something. It might be a passed down something from your father or father's father and all. 

But the dye part is true. It spoils the structure of your hair

This is a very common issue like he said it is caused by stress. But few people when they notice few white hair they use black hair dyes to darken their hair and make it unobvious. But I tell u confidently this hair dyes increase the growth of greyhair sporadically.I have witnessed it.

My own ooopini about white hair is that it is a genetic tin. Whether you are young or old. And if you maintain or stop the growing of the hair by using to many chemical you will develop another problems in addition to the harmless nature.

Thanks for sharing. When having white hair is hereditary, then one should ensure he or she takes care of her self/ himself. That way you won't suddenly look way older than you are when you're just in your early thirties.

Having white hair is not a symbol of old age it's just depend on the body and family history and the genetic makeup of individual, melanin is responsible for black hair so anyone with white hair have little or no melanin

Grey hair at a young age can be sometimes inherent in families. Some can be caused by us for example constant use of wigs promote  colouration of hair for females and sometimes the chemicals we use on our hair also can bring about the onset of grey hair

I did not think gray hair an be prevented from growing..... Having gray hair is hereditary, it is already in the genetic structure, a 15 child can start having gray hair while a 50 years old person won't have a single gray hair...... It depends if it is dominant or recessive in a person gene.
