Why do hair turn white ?

This is a natural part of growing old. When someone grows old, the hair starts becoming grey, sliver or white, each hair on our head is mad of two parts A SHAFT: This is the coloured part we see growing out of our head.
A ROOT: Is the bottom part, which keeps our hair anchored or glued under the scalp. The root of every hair is surrounded by a tube of tissue under our human skin. We call it the hair “follicle”. These follicle as pigment cells in them and these cells produced a chemical named “MELANIN” which gives the
hair it’s colour. But sadly, the older we grow, all pigment cells in our hair gradually die and when this happens the hair no longer as much “MELANIN” then it starts becoming even more transparent.
