Why Hair Change to Grey

The Scientist research result that the chemical reaction caused the hair turn to grey by itself from inside to outer. Scientists may have to imagine why hair turns to gray, and their findings could open the door to strategies of new anti-gray.

This process begins when there is a dip in the level of enzyme called a catalase. The lack of catalase, will cause of hydrogen peroxide that naturally occurs in the hair can not be stopped. So hydrogen peroxide is formed on the hair, and because other enzymes that will modify the hydrogen peroxide also damaged and lack of supply, and the hair becomes gray.

Placing an inhibitor to prevent the chemical reaction have a big scenario on preventing of grayish process of the hair, the scientist write online the The FASEB Journal; including of Schallreuter Karin, professor clinical and experimental dermatology at England's University of Bradford. FASEB is the Federation of American Society for Experimental of Biology.

A wise man said about whiten hair as follows:

A head of gray hairs doesn’t mean one’s an elder.
Advanced in years, one’s called an old fool.
But one in whom there is truth, restraint, rectitude, gentleness, self-control —
he’s called an elder, his impurities disgorged, enlightened.
