Even Kate Middleton has to deal with gray hair.
It seems to happen overnight. One day you’re hoping not to be carded at bars, and the next you’re waking up with increasing numbers of gray hair. Why are they there? And can we delay the inevitable?
The Law of Diminishing Returns
Hair turns gray because of a lack of melanin production over time. “It’s not clear why, but over time, the melanocytes begin to secrete less melanin which is the major factor for pigment in the hair follicle. The result is graying and then whitening of the hair follicles over time. There is no known way to slow the process down unfortunately,” says Dr. Ryan Welter, board certified hair restoration surgeon, leading M.D. and chief surgeon at N.E. Hair in North Attleboro, MA.
