Whenever cloning would happen…say 10,20,30 yrs from now, If I will have gray hair…and a veryyyy little black hair…and if the black hair is multiplied, then after those mulitplied black hair are plugged back onto the scalp…will they all grow black or gray?
The cloned hair would take on the characteristics of its original hair because its growth and color pattern will be determined by its gene. Based upon the way the cloning is carried out, if the hair is your own, there is no present understanding of the ‘expression’ of that hair. Color seems not to be high on the cloning agenda. If the genes dictate that the hair will start out black and turn gray through a preset time, then the hair will follow that pattern. However, environmental factors may affect the gene expression earlier or later than anticipated, but we are too early in the learning curve to answer a question like this. Thus, your hair growth and colors will depend on both genetic and environmental factors.
