The cause of gray hair going coarse and wiry is due to genetics and hormonal changes in your body.

These hormonal changes in our bodies cause loss of pigmentation and also causes our oil producing glands to become less productive at producing the natural oils our hair needs.

Without this needed natural oil your gray hair will become wiry, dry, frizzy and even brittle.
