Myth or Fact: Will Stress Turn Your Hair Gray?

It has long been believed that stress was a factor in some people’s hair turning gray. You have some people who get into car accidents or go through major traumas and parts (or all) of their hair turns gray or white, so we just assume to two are connected. But how many of us have taken the time to truly seek out the answer to this age old myth? Has it been BUSTED, as they say?

The truth is, like with most things scientific in nature, the answer does not just boil down to a yes or no about gray hair. As you are about to see, though, there are some key factors that go into it and it is more complex than we think (though there are solid answers to be found here):

So as you now see, there are many factors that go into your hair turning gray, and you may be predisposed to it with little you can do but wait. My whole family went gray by 40, so I think I am going to start eating more melons. Oh, that is not what they meant by melanin!

Plus, your hair turning gray is not something worth dyeing over.
