Appears Like Gray Hair But Yellowish?
Look, I’m still 15 years old but I already have gray hair. But my gray hair is yellowish. Sometimes a strand of hair has two yellowish white or even yellowish black. Why is that? The genes might be right, but my parents don’t have yellowish hair. That’s all, thank you
Hello Esteryuli, thank you for asking.
As you said, it is the genes that determine hair color and texture. Gene factors also determine when gray hair appears. Genes are inherited from both parents, so the genes we have in the body are a combination of the genes of our parents. But keep in mind that a person's genes can undergo changes called mutations. Mutations can be completely harmless, can also be dangerous. Depending on the type of mutation and what genes are mutated. Mutations can occur at any time in a person's life stage. So it is also possible that the genes that regulate your hair experience a slight difference from your parents.
Another possible reason is exposure to chemicals that cause changes in melanocyte cells. Melanocytes are cells that produce melanin, a pigment that colors hair and skin. Exposure to chemicals can occur due to hair care products, can also be contained in air that has pollution. As long as you don't have any other complaints, you shouldn't worry too much. Thus our brief explanation, hopefully you are helped. Regards.
