Thanks for the unneeded advice…

Shoulda helped her pay tuition…

Tf? lol

Thank you!!

HBCUs aren’t doing as much for us as they should! They aren’t like they use to be 😔

Stress really may turn your hair grey
 
Sign of the times: Grey hair during ageing is the result of exhaustion and loss of melanocyte stem cells, so a similar mechanism could be at play with stress-related greying.
There could be some truth in the anecdotal belief that stress can turn your hair grey.
The appearance of grey hairs after periods of stress or skin damage could be the result of depletion of stem cells from the base of the hair follicle, according to a new study in mice.
The study, reported in Nature Medicine , may also point to new methods of treatment for skin pigmentation disorders such as vitiligo or piebaldism.
Hair and skin are both pigmented by melanin, produced by cells called melanocytes,which in turn are produced by melanocyte stem cells that live in a region at the very base of the hair follicle called the bulge.
Dr Mayumo Ito and colleagues from New York University found that when the skin is damaged or irradiated, these melanocyte stem cells help to repair skin damage by leaving the bulge and travelling to the skin to replenish the store of melanocytes in the outer layer of the skin.
However in the process, they leave the bulge without its own supply of melanocyte stem cells.
The discovery that the stem cells migrate without replicating is a surprise, says Associate Professor Rick Sturm, principle research fellow at the Institute of Molecular Biosciences at the University of Queensland.
"Normally stem cells only stay where they’re supposed to be, in the bulge region, the cells divide and the daughter cells go into the hair follicle to create the hair pigment," says Sturm, who was not involved in the study.
However in the case of a skin injury or UV exposure, as occurred in this mouse experiment, the stem cells appear to migrate out without replicating.
"When that happens, if you lose the stem cells from the bulge region, you lose the capacity to make melanin… so they get this small number of hair follicles around the injury which become white," explains Sturm.
Stress and grey hair
The researchers discovered a key receptor involved with this stem cell migration, called Mc1r, which is triggered by stress hormones such as adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) and melanin-stimulating hormone.
They say this may explain why stress is linked with an increase in grey hairs.
"Stress hormone (ACTH) promotes melanocyte migration from hair follicle to epidermis in mice and we thought it would be interesting to speculate that excessive stress might promote this migration too much at the expense of preserving melanocytes within the hair follicle," says Ito.
Grey hair during ageing is the result of exhaustion and loss of melanocyte stem cells, says Sturm, so a similar mechanism could be at play with stress-related greying.
"Certainly stress can affect the stem cells and one way to lose or go completely grey is to lose your stem cells quicker," he says.
The discovery could also lead to treatments for conditions such as vitiligo — depigmentation of the skin — and to prevent hyperpigmentation, which is too much pigment in the skin.
"If we can know more about how melanocytes migrate from hair follicle area to the epidermis, we may get the ability to promote this process for the treatment of hypopigmentation disorders," says Ito.
"Our results suggest that melanocyte migration from the hair follicle to the epidermis may partly contribute to skin pigmentation, thus inhibition of this migration process may be a novel approach to prevent UV induced hyperpigmentation, or post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation commonly seen after surgery."
