Is There A Way To Permanently Remove White Hairs? (White hair removal)
Electrolysis is the best and the only reliable method to permanently remove white hairs. The electric current passes through the shaft of the hair and destroys the growing cells of the hair follicle to that the hair does not grow again. Electrolysis does not depend on the pigment of the hair (unlike lasers) and permanently removes of the hair irrespective of the colour of the hair (grey, blond or white) or the color of the skin (dark, tan, white or brown). It is the only FDA (Food and Drug Administration, USA) approved method to permanently remove the hairs (be it white or black) and has been used for the past 100 years with perfect efficacy and results.
The modern methods of hair removal using lasers all rely on pigment. If a hair is white, the laser cannot interact with the hair follicle and will have no effect. Laser hair removal requires pigmentation in the hair follicle, thus laser hair removal is completely useless for white hairs (also blond and grey hairs) and also lasers are harmful on certain types of skins as well like dark skin, brown skin or tanned skin. Some laser experts try to fool you by saying that they will dye the hairs and use laser hair removal, but that is totally useless, as the hair is dyed only on the shaft and not in the root. And the part that is dyed is shaved off as in any laser hair removal procedure, the roots of the hairs still remain white, on which the laser does not act. The principle of working of all the laser machines is heat produced by absorption of the laser energy the dark melanin pigment. If the dark melanin pigment is absent as in white hairs or if the skin is dark as well then the laser light will not act on the hairs but will burn the skin. White hairs have no pigment, therefore does not get affected by a laser energy. Even if the hair is dyed, there is no effect.
Electrolysis of the hairs is though a tedious process but it is the only method by which white hairs can be removed.
Thus Electrolysis of the hair is the only method of permanently removing the white hairs.
The most effective way to permanently remove white hair is with electrolysis treatment.
This will permanently remove the hair regardless of color.

Pathophysiology of the Aging (Whitening of hairs)
Facial Hairs in Females in Aging
The facial hair growth increases as women as they age, specifically after women go through menopause. As women age their hormone levels change, there is decrease in estrogen/ progesterone levels and increase in androgen levels after menopause. This causes side effects such as reduced sex drive, moodiness, drying of vagina, insomnia and increase in facial hairs and thinning of head hairs. After menopause as the levels of estrogen / progesterone start to decrease the levels of androgen begin to dominate and leads to increase in face hairs growth in chin and neck area as the hairs present in those area have receptors for androgens. These hairs become male distribution that is hairs at jawline starts to grow thicker and also the hairs become white due to aging. Weight gain at menopause also contributes to growth of face hair growth as it causes less estrogen production and more androgen.
Hair color change. This is one of the clearest signs of aging. Hair color is due to a pigment called melanin, which hair follicles produce. With aging, the follicles make less melanin, and this causes gray hair. Graying often begins in the 30s. Scalp hair often starts graying at the temples and extends to the top of the scalp. Hair color becomes lighter, eventually turning white. Body and facial hair also turn gray, but most often, this happens later than scalp hair. Hair in the armpit, chest, and pubic area may gray less or not at all.
Graying is largely determined by your genes. Gray hair tends to occur earlier in white people and later in Asians. Nutritional supplements, vitamins, and other products will not stop or decrease the rate of graying, though they can delay the premature whitening of hairs due to stress or unbalanced diet.
Hair thickness change. Hair is made of many protein strands. A single hair has a normal life between 2 and 7 years. That hair then falls out and is replaced with a new hair. How much hair you have on your body and head is also determined by your genes. Nearly everyone has some hair loss with aging. The rate of hair growth also slows. Hair loss usually develops gradually. It may be patchy or all over (diffuse). Normally, you lose roughly 100 hairs from your head every day. The scalp contains about 100,000 hairs.As you age, your body and face also lose hair. Women's remaining facial hair may get coarser, most often on the chin and around the lips. Men may grow longer and coarser eyebrow, ear, and nose hair. Rampant tufts of hair springing out of dark nasal and ear cavities and eyebrows. The exact cause of the cause of the this excessive growth of hairs in places like ears, nostrils and face is not known, but may be related to hormonal imbalance.
Some types of hair develop anagen sensitivity as we grow older, the long term exposure of hair follicles to testosterone will disrupt and lengthen their growing period. That’s why nose, ear, and eyebrow hair become thicker and longer as we age.
Hair strands become smaller and have less pigment. So the thick, coarse hair of a young adult eventually becomes thin, fine, light-colored hair on scalp and thick and coarse on face, ears and body. Men may start showing signs of baldness by the time they are 30 years old. Many men are nearly bald by age 60. A type of baldness related to the normal function of the male hormone testosterone is called male-pattern baldness. Hair loss may be at the temples or at the top of the head. Women can develop a similar type of baldness as they age. This is called female-pattern baldness. Hair becomes less dense and the scalp may become visible.
