Curly Pixie with Naturally Gray-White Hair

Pigment cells in your hair follicles produce melanin, the chemical that gives your hair its color. These cells begin to die as you become older. Because new hair strands lack color, they grow lighter and eventually turn gray, silver, or white. But science didn’t say we can’t sport an excellent haircut if your hair turns gray. Please take a look at this inspiration and rock it!
