Premature graying is influenced by two important factors, one of which is stress.

However, this condition can also occur in those who are still young, you know. The appearance of gray hair in your 20s is called premature graying.

Premature gray hair is influenced by two important factors, first, namely stressful body conditions. This condition can trigger the release of certain hormones, which damage hair follicles. As a result, gray hair loses melanin quickly.

Meanwhile, the second factor is closely related to hair lacking nutrients, such as vitamins B12 and D, which can affect overall hair health.

This process of changing hair color (melanin) occurs in the hair follicles which are in the layers of the scalp. There are two types of melanin, namely eumelanin which produces black or brown, and pheomelanin which produces yellow or red.

In premature graying , several biological changes occur in it, such as a decrease in melanocyte activity. In this phase melanocytes become less active or die more quickly than they should. In addition, a buildup of hydrogen peroxide in the body can destroy melanin. This is what makes gray hair appear faster.

To prevent premature graying, you can treat it by using hair serum, which is made from natural ingredients, such as tea powder, curry leaves, black coffee and nigella seeds.
