Greying of hairs before the age of 35 is known as premature greying of hairs.
Earlier grey hairs depicted the onset of old age and were normally reported at the start of 40’s.
But today the case is different, you may see grey hairs starting at teenage years as well.
At the root of hairs, within the scalp the hair is surrounded with a hair follicle. These hair follicles contains the pigment producing cells that produce the pigment melanin.
Melanin gives a natural color to your hair strand.
Due to various reasons, the required quantity of melanin pigment is reduced which causes the hair strand to loose its color.
It is a part of normal ageing process whereby the amount of pigment produced starts reducing naturally whereby usually in 50’s you have considerable amount of grey hairs.
But, If you are among such people who have started getting gray hairs in early 20’s consult a homeopath soon.
