Five Things That Can Turn Your Hair Gray

Whether you’re years away from gray, have plucked a few strands, or diligently color every 6 weeks, here are five things that determine a silver hue (luckily, two are within your control).

Age. Hair goes through growth cycles every 3 to 6 years, says Paradi Mirmirani, MD, a dermatologist in Vallejo, CA. And as you make new hair with each cycle, it’s more and more likely that something will go “wrong” with the pigment. Some people can go through seven or eight cycles before they notice any stray grays, and Mirmirani says most of her patients seem to develop them sometime in their 30s—but she’s seen it happen in people as young as 8 or 9. The good news: Of all of the unpleasant side effects of aging (wrinkles, anyone?), this is one of the easiest to cover up.

Genetics. You probably got your natural hair color from Mom or Dad, and now you’re likely to follow their pattern for graying as well—genetics plays an important role in when you start to lose your pigment. “If both of your parents are prematurely gray, then you’re more likely to go prematurely gray than your friends are,” says Carolyn Jacob, MD, a cosmetic surgeon and dermatologist in Chicago. And people with jet-black hair tend to go gray faster than blondes or brunettes, she says.

Smoking. While there hasn’t been any large, definitive research, several small observational studies have found a link between smoking cigarettes and developing gray hair, Mirmirani explains. The phenomenon may be related to the free radicals that are produced while smoking, which we already know can contribute to other not-so-great things, like wrinkles and yellow teeth. “Given all of the various harmful effects of smoking, I think hair graying is probably amongst them,” she says.

Stress. Wondering if your job (or your kids or your mother-in-law…) can really give you gray hair? Day-to-day stress probably doesn’t affect your hair color, Mirmirani says, but major anxiety might. While the exact science isn’t quite there yet, we do know that big, stressful events can have a physiological effect, which could possibly spur changes in pigmentation and hair cycles.

Medical conditions. While it’s very rare, certain metabolic conditions, severe nutritional deficiencies, and genetic disorders can cause gray hair, Mirmirani says. There are also some chemotherapy medications for cancer patients that can interfere with the pigment-making mechanism. Not to worry, though: People usually return to their natural color after treatment.

Natural Fibroid Shrinking Testimony


M. McKenzie – Naturally Shrinked Fibroids



“Dear Dr Akilah,

You are a Godsend! I can not believe that I suffered all these years with a uterus full of fibroids and two ovarian cysts. Every year my periods would get heavier and heavier and all the doctors would do is monitor it, prescribe me countless birth control pills and pain medication. The final straw was when my doctor referred me to an OBYN surgeon who insist on giving me a hysterectomy! That’s when I had enough and decided to put it in the Lord’s hand. The next day my cousin Linda Mae told me about you and how you helped her get pregnant in 6 months after her private Physican failed after 5 years. As you know from our first conversation on the phone I was a bit skeptical but I was so desperate that I was willing to try anything.

A couple of weeks after our first consultation I noticed a big change in my periods. I wasn’t bleeding heavy and my cramps were not painful. I also noticed that the bloating in the bottom of my stomach went down tremendously. After our second phone consultation my periods went from 9 days to 4. Hallelujah! You also recommended that I get another ultrasound to determine how much my fibroids shrink. You have no idea how overjoyed I was when I got the results saying that my fibroids went from 12cm to 4cm and the two cyst that were located on my ovaries are gone!!!!!! After our third phone consultation you gave me the final program that would finish the rest of those fibroids off. That was three months ago. I just got back from the doctor and rushed to my computer because I had to send you this email! Dr Akilah I am typing this letter to you with tears in my eyes. They are not tears of sadness but tears of joy! I just had a meeting with my doctor and the ultrasound showed a healthy normal uterus that was fibroid free!

I am one of the many, perhaps thousands of women you helped keep their uterus. Bless you Dr Akilah and I give thanks to the Lord our Father everyday for bringing you into my life. You are truly an angel sent here to help us! Thank you for everything you’ve done and may God continue to bless you with the wonderful knowledge and usage of his herbs.

sincerely yours,

M. McKenzie– Great Falls, MT”
