While gray hair appears in the vast majority after the age of 40, for many people the process begins much earlier

Legend has it that in 1793, the night before she was beheaded, Queen Marie Antoinette’s hair lost its color and turned completely white.

Although the tale about the last hours of France’s last queen lacks historical evidence, the idea that stress can cause hair to prematurely gray is a good one in science.

But American researchers are reporting good news for young gray hairs.

According to a new study from Columbia University in New York (USA), published in the scientific journal eLife: When the source of stress is removed, hair can return to its natural color.
