Myths and truths about gray hair
“Grey hair is a sign of aging”
FALSE. Although we are all assailed by a feeling of old age and deterioration, gray hair is not an unequivocal symptom of the passage of time. Gray hair itself is hair that has lost its natural color due to reduced melanin production. This slowing down of the process can be associated with old age, but also with the stress and problems we have to live with.
“If you pull out one gray hair, you take two”
FALSE. This is not to encourage you to start your gray hair, but the truth is that if you did, nothing would happen. Now where does such a lie come from? Apparently it is an optical effect: as the white hair comes out little by little and in groups, when it grows the new one will appear together with others that are already part of the process.
“Gray hair comes out due to stress or nerves”
REAL. Whether you believe the stress thing or not, the truth is that excessive activity and its consequent nerves accelerate the oxidative process, i.e. aging. Sadness, arguments, worries and low moods significantly affect the appearance of gray hair.
“Gray hair doesn’t fall out”
FALSE. Because gray hair has a new, thick and strong texture, it is often believed that it will not fall out. But the truth – and this goes for the delusion of men – is that gray hair follows the same rate of growth and loss as normal hair.
“It’s the Genes Fault”
REAL. You convince yourself that the presence of gray hair is a sign of maturity and wisdom. Now how to explain such an invasion when you are 25 years old and have limited life experience? It seems that the problem is genetic. Specialists ensure that it is written in the DNA as an inexorable destiny and impossible to overturn.
In normal situations, hair starts turning white around the age of 30. It’s the age in which we all run to our trusted hairdresser looking not only for a few words of comfort, but also for something to eliminate gray hair from our lives.
