die.

I'm not being funny but that's the only way I can think of! It's grey before you actually see it coming out of your follicles, right? It's like McFadden and White, Aint no stopping.

Your going to get old whether you like it or not and you cant stop what comes out of your root, sorry unless you dye your hair and every time you get new growth you dye it but then again your hair will fall out

Actually there's a Chinese herb called He Shou Wu which is supposed to work, I only have about 2/3 strands of grey, I bought it but never took it consistently..

So no potion, lotion, tea rinse, vitamin, castor oil concoction can prevent grays? No African, Chinese, Jamacian, Dominican, or Indian herb that will repigment the hair strand?

Each hair root contains a cell called a melanocyte, which produces the melanin that gives hair its natural color. Melanocytes function for a set amount of time. Once they die, the hair without melanin grows out in a transparent shade of gray, silver or white

So it seems follicle transplants may be the answer.

Me too! I don't know if you can prevent them, but you can hide them with dye or ayervedic (sp?) oils. They turn my grays a darker red, but my grays still show anyway. I've decided to do a rinse in 2 weeks. I don't want to do a rinse too soon after my texture softnerr. It may be weaker, but a chemical is still a chemical.

I am so amazed you were able to bring a Breakin' reference into a thread about gray hair.
It made me laugh out loud for real.

LOL!!!! Yep Only 2 ways Out Die or Dye it lol. You can't Stop the aging process and some people get grey hair at an young age. My Brother is 28 years old and he is looks like 60 year old senior citizen by the head from stress lol.

There are Africans, Chinese, Jamaicans, Dominicans and Indians with gray hair - so the answer is no.

What might help. Learn stress management skills in middle school and practice them into adult hood. Eat right, exercise, always get enough sleep, etc. Most people have at least some gray hair by the time they're 30 if not earlier. Looking for the magic "gray-away" pill at the age of 30 is too late.

Gray hair is, along with premature balding, one of the greatest fears of image-conscious men and women everywhere, but it may soon be a thing of the past.

Scientists at the Ito Lab at New York University's Langone Medical Center have identified the proteins that cause gray hair, which could lead to an eventual cure.

This breakthrough means that one day the wnt protein could be added to hair grooming products or supplements and help turn back the clock.

I don't think you can aside from dye or reducing stress. If it helps, gray and white hairs can be sexy. I know a girl that had a couple silvery grey hairs near the front of her hair. She got that whole section colored silvery grey and it's like a highlight. It looks pretty cool to me lol.

henna and indigo has been my friend...when I feel like it, that is. I also heard that fo-ti (woo shu) is supposed to help to reverse graying.

I dont want to pluck mine, not cause I think more will grow in its place. i know thats not true, but repeated plucking can damage the follicle and kill it so that hair will never grow. I'm tempted to tell my mom to cut them down as close to the roots as she possibly can but her eyesight isnt the best

Default Re: How do you prevent gray hair?

What I want to know is why gray hair grows so much faster than the other hairs. i have a few persistant strands that i cut out and they grow back and end up being the same length of the other hairs again. how does this happen?
