Why does hair turn Grey?

It happens to all of us, but it happens at different rates. Why does hair turn grey and is there anything I can do about it?

Usually hair starts turning grey in your 30's and 40's. Grey hair is a result of the decline in melanin producing cells and white hair is hair that has no melanin producing cells. A gradual decline in the number of stem cells that mature to become melanin-producing cells causes gradual greying hair. The cells die out, become damaged, or lose the support systems that allow them to produce melanin.

Can I stop it? Slow it down? The healthier your body is, the better it works. Drinking water, eating the healthiest foods, not smoking and working out are the best things you can do for your body. While none of these are a promise that your hair won't turn grey, it won't hurt and I'll be here to help you blend or cover your grey when the time comes!
