Premature Greying of Hair

Greying of hair implies the changing color of hair from its natural color to grey and ultimately into white. The hair is composed of the same kind of cells that are found in the outer layer of the skin- the epidermis. Hair grows from hair follicles of the epidermis and the sebaceous glands of the scalp, which secrete an oily substance. This substance is the source of nutrition and blackness of hair. Greying of hair at an early age is primarily due to heredity, mental worries, nervous shock or some disease.
Symptoms
  • The hair start becoming grey at a younger age.
