How to Prevent Premature Grey Hair

Even though “going grey” seems to be in style these days, there’s no doubt that men and women alike are trying to rid themselves of this grey hair “plague”. Let`s try to figure out why you have grey hairs in the article.

Grey hair is preventable, or at least measures can be taken to lessen or even completely eliminate its presence in your life. First it’s important to understand just why you have grey hairs in the first place:

Hereditary: Genes are perhaps the most dominant factor when it comes to whether or not you will have grey hair. Grey hair almost always comes naturally to everyone, but at what time you start having grey hairs is all dependent on hereditary. If your father went grey prematurely and you’re a male, there’s a good chance that you’ll be going grey early too

Smoking: Smoking is thought to also be a large contributor to the grey hair epidemic. If you are a smoker who smokes ½ pack to a full pack a day, chances are you will suffer from premature grey hairs faster than one who does not smoke

Stress: Stress is also a known factor when it comes to grey hair. Try to reduce the stress in your life by meditating, exercising, eating right, and taking time to yourself every day to do what you enjoy.

How to Stop Grey Hair

There are a whole lot of gimmicky products out there that promise to help get rid of your grey hair, but chances are unless it is some sort of dye, your hair will continue to turn more and more grey. Apart from dyeing or “spray canning” your hair with color or going for colored plugs, here are some natural ways to keep your hair color intact:

The Curry Leaves with Almond Oil Mix: Boil a few curry leaves in equal parts almond oil, and then massage this mixture into your hair every other day once the mixture has cooled. This treatment will stimulate and rejuvenate your hair, two things that are necessary to restore your previous hair color

Black Tea Hair Rinse: Black tea, when mixed with a few dashes of table salt, is thought to actually prevent your hair from going grey. If you are looking to retain your current hair color, try this treatment. You should notice this rinse turning your grey hairs even lighter so that they are less noticeable.

Coconut Oil and Lemon Hair Treatment: This is perhaps the best remedy when it comes to preventing the premature graying of hair. Take 3 full tablespoons of coconut oil and then add in a few drops of lemon juice into the mixture. Massage this mix into your scalp and leave it there for at least half an hour. Once a sufficient amount of time has elapsed, wash your hair with shampoo.

Emu Oil and Vitamin E: Mixing equal parts emu oil with equal parts vitamin E will help promote your hair growth as well as prevent premature greys. Massage this mixture into your scalp, leave it on for at least 10 minutes, and then rinse with a hydrating shampoo. You should be not only noticing your hair thickening, but you should be noticing fewer grey hairs within a few short weeks.
