When we age the natural hair color begins to fade because of the activity in cells that are producing melanin drops. This is the reason why your hair loses its color. However, it is more complicated than that. Graying hair can be a result of your lifestyle. It appears much earlier than the thirties. The causes can be an unhealthy diet, stress, damaging habits like smoking, but also the usage of chemical hair products.

Grey Hair Don’t Care
I was 24 when I noticed the first grey hair due to thyroid condition. After a while that one hair becomes a few more and now it is a full strand. At first, I was angry thinking that I should color my hair for the rest of my life which is kind of annoying when you are young. As years passed by I get used to that grey hair and now I don’t even perceive it. I kind of like it. I decided to let my hair age naturally, so I can show that age is not the problem, but the way we look at ourselves, and in self-esteem.
