“Stress Turns Hair White,” Discovered by Scientists

Scientists say they may have discovered why stress makes hair turn white, and a possible way of stopping it happening without reaching for the dye (Readers may find a few of the details distressing). Read this latest report by Tropika Club.

Experiment on stress and mice

In experiments on mice, stem cells which control hair and skin colour became ruined after intense stress. At a chance finding, dark-furred mice turned completely white in weeks. The US and Brazilian researchers stated this route was worth investigating further to develop a drug that prevents hair colour loss from ageing.

Women and men can go grey any time from their mid-30s, with the time of parental hair colour change giving most of the clues on when. Even though it’s mostly down to the natural ageing process and genes, stress may play an important role.
