Gray hair isn't really gray? The gray hair we see are actually transparent. Next to colored hair, the transparent hair appears to be gray.
Gray hair isn't always due to old age. Take American Idol winner Taylor Hicks for example or the comedian Stave Martin. They both had gray hair prematurely. Some people don't mind having gray hair.

Lets talk about how to stop gray hair caused by aging. You probably can't really stop gray hair but you can put up a good fight. Here's what you can do:
Check for underlying causes
Gray hair can be caused by underlying medical conditions like hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, gastric bypass, Crohn's disease, celiac disease, or by parasites in the body.
