Why do I have white hair?
White hairs normally starts to appear when your body stops producing melanin. Melanin provides your hair with its natural hair colour. Melanin also preserve moisture for your hairs. When it is not provided sufficiently for your hair follicles, your hair will start to become white and fragile and they will appear lifeless. The problem of white hair is mostly due to genetics and lack of nutrition such as vitamin B12, and having problems with your thyroid is also likely to cause it.

Using a chemical dye to colour white hair is the most common approach nowadays, however, such dyes are highly hazardous to hair follicles and there’s a possibility of ruining your scalp permanently forever if you use too much of those or if you go to an unprofessional hair salon. Please be aware that chemical dye should never be applied to the scalp. Here is an example of a man who used to have a head of healthy hair, but he lost it all in 5 months due to an allergy to a chemical dye he did at a non-professional local salon.
