hi people, the dark or light color of someone's hair depends on how much melanin each hair contains. As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent color - like gray, silver, or white - as it grows. As people continue to get older, fewer pigment cells will be around to produce melanin. Eventually, the hair will look completely gray. People can get gray hair at any age. Some people go gray at a young age - as early as when they are in high school or college - whereas others may be in their 30s or 40s before they see that first gray hair.

Rapid graying of hair may occur after severe emotional stress. In certain internal diseases hair might gray early.

The oxidative dyes are the most versatile and the most frequently used. But dyeing has its drawbacks- once you start dyeing it is seen to increase gray hairs. Henna is also used because apart from its safety, it is a superb conditioner. Having calcium pantothenate in the dose of 200 mg dail

you have not mentioned your age . what do you think that you want? do you want your hairs not to grey even at the age of 99? then you go to Himalya's and perform some "thapsya" and when God comes down to fulfill your desire ask for a quarter of "Amrutha"

lack of iron can cause grey hairs, so also stress.
