Grey Hair and Women Health

Thursday, 29 October 2009

grey hair womenIt is rather difficult to meet a grey-haired woman in the street recently. Even younger girls use dyes and coloring shampoos when they are not actually in need of changing the color of hair. On the other hand, all of us have a couple of grey hairs. Sometimes we do not pay attention to grey in hair but sometimes we are too irritated with them that we angrily pull them out. So, what if the liquidation of grey hair is not the right solution? Why do we have grey hair and how to cope with it? Yet, perhaps silver locks are not so bad?

The color of our hair depends on the pigment called melanin. It is produced in the hair bulbs, in melanocytes. In the neighborhood in keratinocytes the protein is formed so much required to build hair. At the time when the protein and pigment are joined together, out hair gets the appropriate color. Respective of the kind of melanin humans have various color of their hair. Eumelanin provides dark-brown color to hair, feomelanin gives the color close to henna, ossimelanin gives the light color and the group of triochromes provides red color. Depending on the match of these pigments we have our individual and unique color of our hair. When melanocytes cease functioning actively, our hair loses the color since extraction of melanin is reduced.


Those who decide to struggle with grey hair will find it useful to know why and how it occurs.

There are many reasons, while you might know of the ageing cause only.

  • Alcohol abuse and extra coffee consumption
  • Lack of fish and vegetable in the diet
  • Over-fatigue
  • Long stay in the sun
  • Lack of vitamins and minerals in the diet
  • Disorders of peripheral and central nervous systems
  • Stress
  • Heredity
  • Particular viral diseases
  • Hormonal disorders
  • Kidney diseases
  • Skin diseases (sacred fire, herpes, alopecia areata)
  • Autoimmune disease
  • Some particular medications like chloroquine, resochin, hydroquinone, phenylthiourea, and many others.

Now can you imagine how dangerous low-calorie diets are that do not give you necessary vitamins? Or abuse of coffee?

How to prevent poliosis?

Interesting fact: Strong vegetarianism when younger cause problems with hair. When in the mature ages, exclusion of animal proteins from food ration does not affect hair color.

It is not possible to avoid silver locks, as well as skin ageing. Since particular preventive measures are able to move aside such an unpleasant event.

First, consider food: plums, white cabbage, onion, blackberry, strawberry, raspberry, apricot, cherry and kalanchoe as the juice and extract.

Second, intake of vitamins А, С, Е, riboflavin and folic acid.

Third, extracts to rub into the scalp. For example, 1 to 2 tablespoon of sag of parsley roots, parsnip and celery - once a day.

Fourth, never pull grey hair out. Some people are ready to do it. Once you do it, make sure you will have twice as much, since the root at the base of the follicle produces the serum that affects the next hair. Want to get rid of that ugly hair? Just cut it accurately.

What do you need to help yourself?

Dye for hair, certainly. When your thatch has more than two or three grey hairs, then the only thing to struggle with grey hair is dying. Though, it causes some troubles. First, you need to choose lighter shades to match your skin type. Then the dye is used in three steps with the aim to even the shade of dyed hair, and soft dyers are best to use. With insignificant number of grey hair coloring shampoos may be helpful. Make sure that the dye contains natural coloring compounds, that may nourish the hair. Apply balms since grey hair is a trouble to style.  

When and why can you be proud of grey hair?

Never believe that Hollywood celebrities never afford themselves to have grey hair. Helen Mirren, Vanessa Redgrave and Jamie Lee Curtis are women who are proud of their ageing status and who have gone against the social opinion. In one of the interviews for women's magazine «MARIE CLAIRE» Jamie Lee Curtis told that her first silver hair appeared when she was 43. It is obvious that a public person finds it quite difficult to demonstrate such unpleasant things. She told «I had some more courage than ever. Since I had to have my hair cut very short for the beginning.  It was impossible to wear long hair, two centimeters of grey hair is actually ugly», said Jamie. Hair care is based on the shampoo with balsamic vinegar that makes your hair shine.

Do you feel yourself comfortable wearing grey hair? Then, you do not need to color them. It is significant to be self-confident, not to feel uneasiness, psychological discomfort and complexes. But if grey hair does not arouse positive emotions, then you'd better apply toning shampoos and dyes.
