Perhaps it's part of the folicle dying..I am not sure!
and i've noticed that i have a few grey hairs that grow occasionally on my head, but only on the right side... why only on the right side?
So why does shock sometimes turn your hair white/grey?
It is interesting that melanin is the pigment that colors hair, and melanin is also the pigment that causes skin to tan when exposed to sunlight....But sunlight bleaches hair, causing it to go from brown to blonde over the course of a summer.Shouldn't hair get darker when exposed to sunlight and "tan" just like skin??
Can anyone explain why hair goes grey? Heard the most fantastic explanations, none of which really convinced me. Would really like to hear what's known about it. (Yes I'm greying, but that's been going on for ages now, my brother has even darker hair and he started when he was in his early twenties...) [:I]
