Hair care includes everything from color maintenance to prepping hair for styling. Learn salon secrets you can use at home with the helpful tips from a professional hairstylist in this free video series on hair care.

BLENDING OUT GREY is the best way to keep your grey but enhance it with high and low lights. Some people spend hundreds of dollars for base colors and highlights that do not stay when you wash your hair. Keep your grey hair and ask for blending with highlights or lowlights.

How to Cover Gray Hair with Dye

Most of our customers especially those in their 30’s and above usually ask this question.

Q: I recently heard about supplements and other products that can reduce or reverse gray hair. Is there any truth in these products or are they bogus? Thanks for any input.

There is no scientific evidence that any diet, herb, supplement, or product can reduce or reverse gray hair, however, there are some underlying conditions that may result in premature gray and some ancient approaches you might be interested in.

It might help to first understand why we get gray hair. Hair color is produced by tiny hair pigment cells within our hair follicles called melanocytes. As we age, the activity of these melanocytes gradually declines until they stop making pigment. New hairs grown in without pigment, resulting in gray hair.

Each one of us has a genetically determined time when we will get gray hair. Although nothing can stop hair from turning gray, there are some conditions that can cause hair to gray earlier or more quickly than normal.

Thyroid disorders. Conditions such as Grave’s disease, Hashimoto’s disease, hyperthyroidism, and hypothyroidism have been linked with premature gray hair.

Vitamin B12 deficiency anemia. It can be due to a diet low in vitamin B12, which is found mainly in meat, eggs, and milk. It can also occur if the stomach can’t absorb vitamin B12, due to surgery involving the stomach or small intestine (such as gastric bypass surgery), diseases that affect the small intestine, such as Crohn’s disease, celiac disease, fish tapeworms, or small intestine bacterial overgrowth, or a lack of protein called intrinsic factor due to an autoimmune reaction or a genetic defect.

Vitiligo. A condition in which your skin loses melanocytes, resulting in very light patches of skin and possibly premature gray hair.
Early menopause

Smoking. Cigarette smoking has been linked to premature gray hair.

Addressing these underlying conditions, in some cases, may help to prevent hair from going premature gray.

Hair turning gray

Oh no! my hair is turning gray!
You wake up one morning and look at yourself in the mirror, then you shriek “honeeeeyy…, “ , you’re hubby comes barging in brandishing his newly acquired shotgun, “what’s the matter dear..”, you answered “my hair is turning gray”, your husband chuckled and said..”you’re no longer a spring chicken love, you’re last years spring chicken!”, goes out of the bathroom and went right back to sleep.

Most guys normally don’t care about graying hairs, they simply accept it as a consequence of getting older. Most women would simply panic at the first sight of their graying hairs. If you are in your 50’s that would be normal, but if you start seeing gray hairs when you’re in your 20’s or 30’s then its about time you press the panic button and start researching why it’s happening to you.

Here’s a few articles I have gathered to explain the causes of graying hairs:

From the ScienceDaily (Feb. 24, 2009)

Why Hair Turns Gray Is No Longer A Gray Area: Our Hair Bleaches Itself As We Grow Older
Wash away your gray? Maybe. A team of European scientists have finally solved a mystery that has perplexed humans throughout the ages: why we turn gray. Despite the notion that gray hair is a sign of wisdom, these researchers show that wisdom has nothing to do with it.

Going gray is caused by a massive build up of hydrogen peroxide due to wear and tear of our hair follicles. The peroxide winds up blocking the normal synthesis of melanin, our hair’s natural pigment.
“Not only blondes change their hair color with hydrogen peroxide,” said Gerald Weissmann, MD, Editor-in-Chief of The FASEB Journal. “All of our hair cells make a tiny bit of hydrogen peroxide, but as we get older, this little bit becomes a lot. We bleach our hair pigment from within, and our hair turns gray and then white. This research, however, is an important first step to get at the root of the problem, so to speak.”

The researchers made this discovery by examining cell cultures of human hair follicles. They found that the build up of hydrogen peroxide was caused by a reduction of an enzyme that breaks up hydrogen peroxide into water and oxygen (catalase). They also discovered that hair follicles could not repair the damage caused by the hydrogen peroxide because of low levels of enzymes that normally serve this function (MSR A and B). Further complicating matters, the high levels of hydrogen peroxide and low levels of MSR A and B, disrupt the formation of an enzyme (tyrosinase) that leads to the production of melanin in hair follicles. Melanin is the pigment responsible for hair color, skin color, and eye color. The researchers speculate that a similar breakdown in the skin could be the root cause of vitiligo.

“As any blue-haired lady will attest, sometimes hair dyes don’t quite work as anticipated,” Weissmann added. “This study is a prime example of how basic research in biology can benefit us in ways never imagined.”

Why Hair Turns Gray: Communication Between Hair Follicles and Melanocyte Stem Cells Key to Mystery

ScienceDaily (June 14, 2011) — A new study by researchers at NYU Langone Medical Center has shown that, for the first time, Wnt signaling, already known to control many biological processes, between hair follicles and melanocyte stem cells can dictate hair pigmentation.

The study was published in the June 11, 2011 issue of the journal Cell.

The research was led by Mayumi Ito, PhD, assistant professor in the Ronald O. Pereleman Department of Dermatology at NYU Langone. “We have known for decades that hair follicle stem cells and pigment-producing melanocycte cells collaborate to produce colored hair, but the underlying reasons were unknown,” said Dr. Ito. “We discovered Wnt signaling is essential for coordinated actions of these two stem cell lineages and critical for hair pigmentation.” The study suggests the manipulation of Wnt signaling may be a novel strategy for targeting pigmentation such as graying hair. The research study also illustrates a model for tissue regeneration.
“The human body has many types of stem cells that have the potential to regenerate other organs,” said Dr. Ito. “The methods behind communication between stem cells of hair and color during hair replacement may give us important clues to regenerate complex organs containing many different types of cells.”

Using genetic mouse models, researchers were able to examine how Wnt signaling pathways enabled both hair follicle stem cells and melanocyte stem cells to work together to generate hair growth and produce hair color. Research also showed the depletion (or inhibition or abnormal) Wnt signaling in hair follicle stem cells not only inhibits hair re-growth but also prevents melanocytes stem cell activation required for producing hair color. The lack of Wnt activation in melanocyte stem cells leads to depigmented or gray hair.
The study raises the possibility that Wnt signaling is a key pathway for the regulation of melanocyte stem cells and shows how melanocyte behavior is associated with hair regeneration. This insight provides further understanding of diseases in which melanocytes are either appropriately lost such as hair graying or undergo uncontrolled cell growth as in melanoma.

What can you do with your graying locks:

1. You can complain about it to your hubby, your relatives and friends all day long and do nothing about it.
2. You can simply accept the fact that you’re not getting any younger and make the most out of your grey locks. Or;
3. You can find a solution that will cover it up.

Finding a solution to cover up your gray locks will be the topic of my next post, until then, have a nice day.
