Best Answer

Going gray is part of life. As we get older the pigment (color) cells in the roots of our hair -- our hair follicles -- gradually die. As the color cells die, the hair loses its color and it becomes transparent. The age that we start going gray is determined by our genetics. Some people go gray very young.
