Hair turning white over night!

HAIR MYTH: HAIR CAN TURN WHITE OVERNIGHT.

Not true. Hair can turn white quickly … but not that quickly. Hair colour pigment (melanin) can stop being produced within a short time because of such things as stress or ill health. If this happe…ns to many thousands of hairs at the same time a person’s hair can turn from being coloured to grey or white within a few weeks or months.

The Science Bit:

Once hair has grown out of the hair follicle the only things that will affect its colour are hair colouring products or environmental effects such as ultra-violet radiation from the sun bleaching the hair. Melanin within the cortex of the hair cannot simply disappear without chemical intervention.
