Grey hair is a natural part of aging. Hair starts to turn grey as the result of the decrease of pigment produced by melanocytes. Melanocytes are composed of stem cells and function in the upper layer of the skin. This melanin pigment active in hair follicle is responsible for the natural hair color. The amount of pigment decreases the same pace as the stem cells naturally die over the years. Stress, heavy exposure to UV radiation, long-term illness, genome and smoking can also cause premature greying.
