hair follicles called Melanocytes
generate the pigment
in our hair and are usually healthy and generous

start generating less pigment to the hair follicle

with age. But premature graying is a morbid
condition and it makes even the young
look older. This causes a great deal of concern
to affected persons, especially women.

and mental worries are the primary causes
of premature graying of hair. It is also due to
the lack of B vitamins, iron, copper and iodine
in the daily diet and diseases like chronic cold,
sinusitis, anemia and chronic constipation.
The unclean condition of the scalp is also one
of the reasons that weaken the roots of the hair
as the pores are blocked by the accumulated dirt.
