Gray hair is a mixture of your natural color and white hairs. Hair color is decided by melanin structure and by genetics. The lessening of melanin production causes grayness; as you age it is almost inevitable that your hair will lose its color or, if your mother or father went white or gray when young, the chances are that you might also.
