As the years go by, as our age increases, hair color tends to change. Our hair color will become gray, more or less. In the past, no woman wanted to see her hair gray because it was a sign of old age. Women are very afraid of getting old. They often look to hair dye products to find the hair color they want and hide old age. However, these products are very harmful, they contain a lot of toxic substances for hair and scalp.
However, many people are satisfied with gray hair. They think it is not a sign of old age. They found that silver hair is attractive. By science, the hair turns gray when specialized cells (melanocytes) stop producing melanin. In some cases, the natural accumulation of hydrogen peroxide on hair follicles may also bleach hair. Genetics is a major factor determining the age at which melanin stops producing.
According to Southern Living:
“For generations, women have been dying their hair at the very first appearance of gray—perhaps they don’t like the shade of gray that is growing in, or they think it makes them look old, or they simply enjoy the hair color of their youth. As long as you are happy with your hair, dye it, cut it, and wear it however you want.
Ask your hairdresser and she will tell you, however, that there is a growing trend with women to go natural. No longer do we believe that silver hair “ages you.” Unhealthy hair, a bad haircut, a bad dye job—these things will age you.
A headful of healthy, vibrant salt and pepper or snowy white hair is as beautiful and eye-catching as a stunning redhead or brilliant blonde. And yet another trend is younger women paying big bucks to have their hair dyed—you guessed it—gray. You can have it for free.”
