Not saying that women do not feel concerned about them but they can still have so many highlighting techniques etc that it can still make grey hair less visible.

Whitening for hair is a results of low melanin in the hair shaft. Melanin is the pigment that is responsible for the darkening of skin and hair cells. Melanocytes make your hair darker and when you lose this melanin from the individual hair follicles, then the hair gets grey even, when they are shed or tweezed off, then too, the new hair follicle that erupts would be white in color. Now, what causes the shaft to lose melanin? There can be several reasons involved like genetics, stress, diet, lifestyle changes etc. There can be excessive use of chemical rich products which leads to graying of hair.
