Everything You Need To Know About Grey Hair

While some people seem to become more attractive with the arrival of grey hair, many of us shudder when we spot even one or two popping up. Researchers are out there working diligently on just about every aspect of how we age and our greying hair is on the list. So, what do the scientists know that we should too?

Natural aging is the biggest offender.
Big surprise, right?! Skin doctors refer to this as the 50/50/50 rule: 50% of the population will have about 50% grey hair by the time they’re 50. Just like our skin, our hair texture changes as we get older as well.

Stress can affect your natural grey timeline.
Stress alone won’t cause you to go grey but it is the culprit for a lot of skin and hair issues. People can lose hair pretty quickly as the body’s response to an illness or a particularly stressful event, like chemotherapy. Hair that grows back afterward may grow back a different color.

Lifestyle choices are a factor.
We know that smoking causes cancer, but it also affects your skin and hair, causing wrinkles and grey hair. The loss of hair pigment can be attributed to low vitamin B12 levels so make sure you add liver, salmon and carrots to your diet. Foods that contain vitamins, antioxidants and nutrients can help protect your cells against toxins, help prevent cancer and heart disease and even grey hair!

Your ethnic make-up plays a role.
You’ll go grey sooner if you’re Caucasian, with redheads being the first in line. People of Asian descent are next. African-Americans tend to go grey later than either Caucasians or Asians. This is one of those quirks scientists are still trying to figure out.

Your hair and your hair color are separate things.
You have hair stem cells that make your hair and pigment-forming stem cells that make your hair color. Usually they work together, but one or both can wear out, sometimes prematurely. Scientists are researching ways to stop or slow down this process. There could be a medication or a scalp application in the future that would prevent greys from happening.

Your hair grows in grey, it doesn’t “turn” grey.
Every single hair on your head has a lifecycle, it grows for 2-3 years and then falls out naturally and you grow a new one. As you get older, new hairs grow in grey or white. Through each regeneration cycle, your hair has to reform those pigment forming stem cells and as we mentioned above, they wear out over time.

Male Hair Loss In History

There is one theme that all men throughout history have agreed on; concern about losing their hair. During the late 19th century, men caught a major case of hysteria over hair loss. Magazine articles at the time covered the growing panic claiming that half of American business and professional men were currently bald and that it was only a matter of time until we became a race of hairless Americans.

There are not many examples in history of men celebrating their hair loss. Hippocrates is often referred to as the father of modern medicine and he devoted much of his life seeking a remedy for his thinning scalp. Julius Caesar used a laurel wreath to design a royal toupee. In the late 1800’s the medical community was convinced that baldness had reached epidemic proportions. Medical students would perform “studies” by counting the number of bald heads in various crowds and could come to no conclusions about the cause. Weird, unfounded and just plain crazy theories about the cause of male hair loss found their way into newspapers and medical journals, here’s just a few:

Those darn hats!
Many magazines of the time blamed baldness on stiff, thick-brimmed felt hats. The popular fashion of hat-wearing was constricting circulation to the top of the head preventing hair from growing. This theory was especially good for explaining a bald crown because the hair loss essentially started where the rim of the hat was tightest.

Its evolution dear Watson!
At its most basic function, we have hair to keep us warm. Since modern man has developed ways to control the way climate affects us with indoor heating and warm clothing, we no longer need our hair! This theory was appealing because it explained why less-developed cultures were not plagued by baldness. It was believed that the creature comforts appreciated by the upper class had sapped man’s vitality, making him effeminate and weak.

It’s heredity, kind of.
Medical professionals at the time believed that heredity did play a role in male hair loss. However, they thought that you could be born with traits that would make you more susceptible to diseases of the scalp that could cause hair loss. In the late 1800’s, dandruff, bacteria, fungi and ringworm were thought to be major causes of baldness.

More music needed!
Many believed that certain types of music increased hair growth, specifically the sounds created by string instruments. But watch out, wind instruments like the cornet and the trombone could actually prevent hair growth! It was a (completely unproven!) fact that only 1 out of every 100 composers went bald.

So, what exactly did these modern men do to combat their hair loss? Some of the most outlandish (and unpleasant!) of the remedies included cocaine-infused hair tonics, electric brushes and even eating rat flesh!

Luckily, we have quite a bit more research on the topic of hair loss today and have a plethora of successful options when it comes to combatting it.

Dating and Hair Loss

Losing your hair can have a serious impact emotionally and affect your self-esteem, but you’re not alone. More than 50% of men will experience some kind of male-pattern baldness before their 50th birthday. Hair loss can be an even bigger blow to your confidence if you’re still in the dating scene. This is completely normal but keep in mind, you’re probably more concerned about your hair loss than the person you’re on a date with!

You might worry that you will no longer be attractive or appealing to possible partners because of your hair loss. Stop thinking that way and instead look at all the balding men out there who are playing the field, dating, happily single or married without any issues. There are plenty of men out that have experienced hair loss and are still considered attractive and desirable. If bald celebrities like Bruce Willis, The Rock, LL Cool J and Jason Statham can still be heartthrobs, so can you!

One of the things women say they are most attracted to in a man is confidence. What’s important is to own who you are and be confident with yourself even if you are going bald, a little out of shape or not the best dresser. Don’t hide under beanies, caps and hats; be self-assured in what you have to offer and who you are.

If you’re worried about dating while experiencing hair loss, take a step back and remember there is more to you than just this one thing. What is it you liked about yourself or that your friends always remarked on before you started losing your hair? Your fabulous personality isn’t going anywhere. While your hair loss may seem like the most important thing about you at the moment, for most women, it’s not. Your smart, funny, considerate self is what will draw a partner to you and keep them there, not your hair!

Hair loss is not the end of your dating life, however, if you’d like to get a free consultation to address your hair loss issues, call us today at (800) 966-9505.

5 Spring 2017 Hair Trends to Look Forward To

These hair trends are going to be big this upcoming Spring! Get some inspiration for a new look for the new year:

Flat Iron Waves

While you may be used to bouncy or beachy waves, we're picking up the flat iron instead of the curling iron and saying hello to flat waves! Created by a straightener, these waves are a little subtler and will give you a more casual look.

 

Going Sleek

Here's another 'do that will have you breaking out the flat iron! Super sleek hair is in, so try styling your hair to make it straight and opt for a center part for this look. It'll work best if your hair is healthy and shiny, and also make sure you use heat protectant whenever you take a straightening to your gorgeous locks.

 

High Ponytail

Pull your hair up into a high, glamorous pony. The high ponytail will give you an elegant look that's easy to pull off with every outfit. Just make sure you don't pull too tight, or you could risk irritating your scalp and thinning out your hairline.

 

The Grown-Out Shag

It's safe to say that everyone was surprised by the shag being a big hit in 2016, and the new year isn't interested in erasing that. On the contrary, 2017 is the year of the grown-out shag. Let those layers and bangs grow, with hair brushing just past your shoulders and long-enough bangs that can split attractively down the middle.

 

Cher Hair

Lovers of long hair and extensions, your ideal look is here! Created with ultra-long hair extensions, this trending style has been seen on hot celebs like Rihanna and the Kardashians.
