All you need to know about premature greying of hair, their symptoms and cure

By Skin & Hair Academy  |   October 06, 2016

It’s no less than a nightmare to notice your first grey hair strand peeking through a bunch of blacks or browns. With increasing stress and an overall unhealthy lifestyle, premature greying is a common condition in men and women alike. While opting for chemical colouring and dyeing may appear as a quick fix to this, the adverse effects of these treatments only lead to further greying.
What you need is home remedies to retard the greying of your precious lock. So, if you’re wondering how to prevent premature greying of hair the right way, read on:

Prevent premature greying of hair1. A healthy, nutritious diet: Premature greying occurs due to lack of melanin in your hair strands. Therefore, increase your intake of foods rich in vitamin B, iron, copper, and iodine that boost hair health, and retard the process of greying.

Prevent premature greying of hair 2. Coconut oil and Indian Gooseberry (Amla) massage: Indian gooseberry is rich in Vitamin C and anti-oxidants, and works beyond reducing grey hair. Apply a concoction of coconut oil and gooseberry powder/juice on your scalp and leave it overnight. Wash it out the next morning, and repeat the procedure every three days for noticeable results.


Prevent premature greying of hair3. Black tea massage: Containing copious amounts of anti-oxidants and caffeine, black tea proves to be an excellent option to reverse hair greying. All you need to do is, boil two tablespoons of black tea in a pan with some salt water, and wash your hair strands with it. For best results, repeat the process 2 to 3 times per week.


Other solutions on how to get rid of grey hair

1. Reduce stress: The first sign of premature greying is increased stress, and so, you must keep your stress levels in check in order to not aggravate the situation any further.

2. Stop smoking: Did you know, those who smoke regularly stand a chance of getting grey hair four times higher than non-smokers? If you have been smoking regularly, maybe, it’s time you reconsidered, and gave up on this habit for good.

3. Check your thyroid levels: People who’re suffering from any kind of thyroid malfunctions are more likely to witness premature greying. Bring your thyroid levels under control to get rid of grey hair.

4. Quit harsh shampoos and perfumed oils: Both products contain harsh chemicals that, although may feel great upon application, are likely to wreak havoc on your greying hair. Switch to fragrance-free oils and mild/organic shampoos to better your condition of hair greying.
Give the afore-mentioned tips a try, and see if you’re getting the results you expected. If you haven’t, consult a hair specialist and get to the root of the problem.

Hi aakash, yes, indeed, acne holes can be filled by pursuing a proper dermatological treatment such as artificial filling. in this procedure, the medical professional fills the affected area with tissues derived from your body. it takes about three-to-four months for the skin to settle in and become uniform. another excellent procedure is laser skin resurfacing in which the dermatologist uses leaser to cut off thin layers of the upper epidermis of the skin to bring uniformity in the face. consult a dermatologist before proceeding to get these procedures done. you can find a dermatologist in your area by following this link:

Hi raza, smoking isn't the root cause of premature hair greying, but regular consumption of tobacco speeds up the geying process. your friends may not have any hereditary or dietary deficiencies, which cause hair to turn grey. please quit smoking at the earliest, and consider the solutions given in the article above. you can also consult a dermatologist in your area by clicking the link here:
