Here are some preventive remedies that will delay greying of hair

Even though white or grey hair is a sign of ageing and usually occurs as we grow older, we often come across younger people having a strand or two of grey hair. Needless to say, it’s embarrassing. Now you always have the opting of dyeing or hair or colouring it instead but while these may help temporarily hide your problem, they won't help get rid of it. What you need is a way to get rid of grey hair for good. Here is a list of some tried and tested methods to help you out.

Curry leaves

Take a handful of curry leaves and add it to three tbsp of coconut oil. Boil this mixture for a bit and then drain the mixture. Let the oil cool down, then apply it to your scalp and hair and massage well. Leave it on for at least half an hour or if you're comfortable with it, leave it on overnight. Rinse with shampoo and conditioner.

Rub nails

Fold the fingers of both your palms and bring them together. Rub the surface of fingernails of both hands vigorously leaving out the thumbs.
