Even though hair graying is a natural aging sign, no one likes when their black, brown, or blonde hair turns gray. Both men and women are affected by this issue and they try all kinds of methods to cover the gray hairs. The most common method is dying the hair, however, the effect is not long-term and there can be a lot of side effects.
Unfortunately, we also have premature graying, that is, when the hair of younger individuals, aged 15-28, turns grayish. This problem can be caused by certain health problems like hormonal fluctuation, smoking, excessive stress, pollution, chronic colds, thyroid disorders, sinusitis, low amount of melatonin or by a poor diet.
