Does Stress Cause Your Hair to Grey?
If you live a stress free life, does it keep the grey hair away?
Not necessarily. We're born with two chemicals in our bodies. Melanin, which is the pigment in our hair and hydrogen peroxide.
The melanin seems to overpower the hydrogen peroxide early in our lives, which gives us our golden locks of hair. However, as we grow older the hydrogen peroxide overtakes the melanin and a loss of pigmentation thus causing the greying of the hair.
“But in terms of stress causing grey hair, there is no scientific proof whatsoever,” Dr. Michael Stern, an Emergency Medicine Physician at New York Presbyterian Hospital, says.
So, this news makes it cool to continue your stress-filled life without worrying about your hair.
