For most people, especially for women, white hair can be a nightmare. It is simply an unwanted sign of old age. As a result, it truly does hit people’s confidence.

Then, aren't you dying to know what causes it and how to fix it? Read on to find out the answers.

What Really Causes White Hair?

The hair mainly consists of a protein called keratin. With the growing of the hair, melanocytes around the hair follicle inject melanin into the cortex of the hair shaft, so the hair color becomes dark.

The keratin without melanin is a yellowish-gray color. Therefore, when melanocytes around the hair follicle reduce the amount of melanin it produces, the hair starts to lose its color and white hair appears.
