Hi m south indian. Why doesn't shaving my head restore my grey hairs with black ones? The black hair cell died?

Gray Hair: Hair turns gray because of age and genetics, in that genes regulate the exhaustion of the pigmentary potential of each individual hair follicle. This occurs at different rates in different hair follicles. For some people it occurs rapidly, while in others it occurs slowly over several decades. Once the pigment is depleted, the hair will be gray or white and will never have pigment again. ...Read more

I am from south india and I am a 28 year old male. Does the turning of some of my hairs on my head into grey color has got something to do with my ocd?

Depends: Having ocd won't turn your hair grey, but u certainly could become obsessed with greying hair. If part of your ocd is hair pulling, this is a different question. Repeated plucking of hair from the same follicle can change the hair that follicle grows, including loss of pigmentation, which is what causes greying. In addition to anafrinil, are you in therapy? Exposure therapy works well for this. ...Read more
