Many women use coloring to mask white hair. However, there are more natural and less harmful tips that can help you hide them. Here’s how to get rid of white hair with just one ingredient.

The appearance of white hair, or canitia, is due to aging of the skin, and consequently, to the lack of melanin, the pigment responsible for their coloring. However, hair can start to fade at any age, which is why it is found in people as young as 50 years old. Although there are no exact causes that can hide behind this phenomenon, heredity plays an important role in its appearance. Indeed, if one of your parents had his first white hair at a fairly early age, it would likely happen to you the same thing. On the other hand, and even if there is no scientific evidence to support this hypothesis, excessive exposure to stressful situations may also be the cause, as it affects your body and inhibits melanin production.

To help you get rid of it once and for all, come and discover the recipe of this natural anti-hair haircut!
