Grey Hair: Genetic or Environment?

A recent study suggests that a woman’s genes are much more likely to cause grey hair than stress or eating habits.   Scientists by Unilver studied groups of twins both identical and fraternal to see if there were any differences in their greying pattern.   The study found little differences in greying patterns with identical twins, however, there were significant differences in greying patterns with fraternal twins.  Lead researcher Dr. David Gunn said “The research indicates that irrespective of how stressful a woman’s life is, there are greater forces at play which are more likely to cause her hair to grey.” 

I was definitely worried that my crazy lifestyle would put shiny silver in my beautiful brown locks.  Now whatever happens happens.  I can simply blame it on my parents!
