Due to the lack of melanin hormone in the hair, the colour of the hair becomes white or brown. Melanin is a pigment producer that produces melanocyte cells, which bring out the natural colour of hair and skin. The less melanin in our body, the lighter the hair colour. Melanin is less in brown hair, whereas there is no melanin in white hair at all.

With age, the melanin in your hair decreases. At the same time, some people may have less melanin due to health and genetic reasons, due to which their hair looks grey or white. In such cases, you may wonder if there is any medicine that could darken the hair and make it black again. In this article, you will find the answer to this question.
