Reasons For Gray Hair Turning Yellow



If you’ve ever been around someone with gray hair who smokes cigarettes or cigars incessantly, then you’ve probably noticed the yellow sheen on their hair from being overexposed to the pollutants in the smoke. This is just one of the many reasons why some people have a yellowish tint to their gray hair. Listed below are other less common reasons for this occurrence.

Dermatomyositis – This inflammatory disease is relatively uncommon. It can cause muscle pain and a red or violet colored rash, which is usually located around the back, chest, eyelids, face, knuckles, nails, elbows, or knees. Muscle weakness affects the neck, upper arms, hips, thighs, and shoulders, and more often times than not, the fatigue will get worse and progress over time.

Many doctors consider Dermatomyositis an autoimmune disease, and it is more prominent among women than men. It can develop gradually over an extended amount of time or it can appear suddenly. Care should be taken immediately to get the symptoms under control. The treatment consists of the patient taking high doses of oral or topical corticosteroids, and in severe cases, physical therapy is needed to regain muscle strength.

Non-Illness Causes – Yellow hair can also be caused by numerous non-medical issues, including chemicals from home water supply and swimming pools, environmental toxins, eating food containing high levels of sulfur, styling product buildup, prescription drug reactions, and pigment changes naturally occurring with age. A topical psoriasis medication called anthralin can cause discoloration as well, since the treatment involves applying the cream directly to the scalp.

Styling tools have been known to create problems with yellow hair, since flat irons and curling irons have the tendency to burn hair, especially if the tools are used too often at varying degrees of high temperatures. When the hair is burned it will make the strands appear brown or yellow, and once this happens it’s usually impossible to reverse the discoloration. Many hairstylists also warn against using shampoos and conditioners containing selenium sulfide, since this has been shown to discolor gray hair. Tar (found in many dandruff shampoos) can also give silver hair a yellowish hue. Always check the ingredients before purchasing any new hair care products. has recently released a  book Gray Hair No More the book that will  help you to Reversed Your Gray Hair Using a Simple Fool-Proof Method and Gray Hair No More  book is a 100% guarantee that you will Reverse your Gray Hair   else  you will be refunded.
