Hair is not just an appealing feature of our face but also our overall personality. And graying of hair is probably the next big problem after balding. Of course, graying or whitening of the hair is largely influenced by the person’s age. It also depends on various genetic and hereditary factors. The hereditary factors sometimes lead to premature graying at a very young age itself. Some people are seen with grey hair even while they are in their early 20’s. Nevertheless, graying of the hair is also caused by a lot of other factors. But the worst part is, grey hair

Causes for graying of the hair

Hereditary is one of the main causes of graying of the hair. Prolonged psychological problems like stress, tension, and anxiety can also cause graying of the hair at a very young age. Likewise prolonged or severe illness may lead to the graying of the hair. Excessive smoking, drinking is another reason for grey hair. Wrong dietary factors can also cause graying of the hair. This includes drinking coffee or tea several times a day, excess oil and fat in the diet, intake of spicy and acidic food. Deficiency of Vitamin B12 or folic acids in the diet may disrupt the production of melanin in the body and this may also lead to the graying of the hair due to lack of pigmentation.

Diet tips for grey hair

Diet is one of the most important elements influencing the graying of the hair. Eat food rich in all the major Vitamins, proteins, minerals, and iron. Let me give you the foods that contain the essential vitamins for the hair. Vitamin A: For this type of vitamin, you may include raw vegetables and fruits, broccoli, carrot, spinach, pumpkin, sweet potato, and apricots. Vitamin B: It is present in large quantities in leafy vegetables, cauliflower, bananas, cereals, yogurt, yeast, liver, kidney, and wheat gram. Protein: All sprouts are naturally very rich in proteins; egg white is also one of the richest sources of protein, meat, soya etc are all loaded with proteins. Iron: Some of the richest sources of iron are beef, red meat, egg, spinach, leafy vegetables, sunflower seeds, and parsley. All non-vegetarian food especially the ones like fish and chicken are rich in zinc, copper, and iodine.

Home remedies for grey hair

A mixture of lemon juice and gooseberry powder if applied on the hair for a few months will help to preserve and regain the natural black color of the hair. Another useful home remedy for grey hair is to consume butter milk mixed with one or two tablespoons of yeast and wheat gram. This will reduce the graying of hair to some extent. Alternatively, you can grind a piece of ginger or extract the juice of ginger and mix it with honey and seal it tightly in a container. Just consume this mixture one tablespoon everyday in the morning and you will see a considerable improvement in the hair color. Fenugreek is also good for the hair. Eat the sprouts of fenugreek or apply the fenugreek paste on the hair every time before taking bath. Apart from the diet tips and application tips, it is advisable to have your head massaged with natural oil every week or at least once in two weeks. This will stimulate the growth of hair follicles and prevent hair fall and the graying of the hair.

Carrot contains carotene that is one of the essential elements that influence the hair pigmentation. So, drink a glass of carrot juice every day before going to bed. Carrot juice has a lot of other health benefits as well. You may do a bit of research on the Internet using the services of any of the popular providers like the Charter Bundles. Though the above-mentioned tips are thoroughly tested and researched it is always good to consult your doctor before going for any of the home remedies.
