Acquired graying may be senile and premature. Senile bloom develops after 40-50 years of age, and is accompanied by other changes in the skin - a decrease in elasticity, dryness, thinning, wrinkling. Dark-haired blonde people turn gray earlier. It was established that in senile graying hair accumulates hydrogen peroxide, which is at a young age neutralized special enzyme catalase. Over the years, the activity of catalase is reduced, which causes the accumulation of hydrogen peroxide bleaching the pigment melanin. Furthermore, the hair turning gray because the reduced activity of stem cells, which are formed from melanocytes. Older myelocytes gradually die off, and new ones are formed. Today, it is believed that this protective mechanism which protects the human skin cancer (melanoma), which is formed from melanocytes.
