After Pulling Out The Gray Hair?
I want to ask, is it true that if we pull out one gray hair that is in the hair, then the more gray hair will grow? r nThat’s all, thank you doctor
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The blackish hair color is produced from a pigment called melanin which is produced in the hair roots. This melanin production will decrease with age, so that the hair will slowly turn white (gray). The decrease in melanin production is thought to come from damage to the cells that produce it, namely melanocytes.
In addition to the age factor, several other conditions that can accelerate the growth of gray hair are:
Genetic (congenital, hereditary) Smoking Underwent radiotherapy Suffering from certain diseases, such as albino, vitiligo, thyroid gland disorders, pituitary gland disorders, malnutrition, etc. Pulling out drugs does not make the production of gray hair more and more. However, the habit of pulling gray hair can trigger sores on the skin and make the hair roots (pores) open, making it more prone to infection. Usually, an infection at the root of the hair will cause a red rash that feels painful, itchy, or even pus. Therefore, you should not pull out the gray hair on your skin by force.
I hope this helps.
