After Balding, Can You Lose Your Gray Hair?
Hello, I am 18 years old man. I have gray hair and dandruff problems that don’t go away even though I have tried various methods, so I plan to shave my hair until it runs out (smooth bald) can I lose my gray hair and return to health? Please respond, Thank you in advance.
Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. The appearance of white or gray hair on the head and other parts of the body is called gray hair and its appearance is often identified with age. This is because a substance called melanin, which gives hair color, diminishes with age and results in the appearance of gray hair.
In general, Asian people will start to grow gray hair in their late 30s. If it appears at your age, it clearly means gray hair is growing too early. Among the possible causes are:
Genetic or hereditary, you can find out this by asking your parents or grandparents if they also experienced it at a relatively young age
Lack of nutrients such as vitamin B12
Radiotherapy treatment side effects
But regardless of the cause, shaving it off is not the answer. This is because the problem is with the melanin in your body, not on the surface of the hair itself, so shaving it won't help. Our advice, check your condition with a dermatologist to find out if you still have risk factors that can be changed or this is purely due to genetics. If it is caused by genetics, then you cannot treat it, but work around it like using hair dye. So, hopefully it answers your question.
