Hello,

The lack of pigmentation means that the white hairs are just aren't suitable for laser hair treatment. Laser hair removal is usually not very effective on gray hair. You can use epilators that remove hairs by the roots. Ideally you should exfoliate your skin before using epilator.

Take food rich in vitamin B-6 and B-12, they aid healthy skin and hair and delay graying of hair. You can also take supplements. Yes, electrolysis is the best solution for a more permanent and efficient method to remove grey / white hair.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
