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. While dyeing hair will cover up those problems, it won’t rectify them. Below are some tried and tested ways which will not only cure the grey hair you already have but also prevent it from coming again. Read on to know what these remedies are.

Quit harsher shampoos

If you’re using an over-the-counter anti-dandruff shampoo daily, about time you stopped it. Pick a milder, organic shampoo instead. The harsh chemicals in the shampoos and conditioner are known to affect the product of the pigment and cause hair fall too.

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. This strengthens the nerves of your fingernails that are connected to your scalp; thereby rubbing them stimulates blood flow to prevent pre-mature graying of hair and increasing hair growth.

Yoga is one of the most beneficial things you can do for your body. Not only does it keep your body fit, but it also de-stresses your mind and adds a youthful glow to your face. Asanas like Halasana, Trikonasana, Bhujangasana, Matsyasana, and Adho Mukha Savasana increases blood circulation at your head, thus promoting new hair growth.


09/12Heat protection

Heat protection

This is a preventive as well as a curative measure against hair whitening. Excessive heat and sweat make the scalp dry. The hair follicles become weak and start to age and the process is accelerated with exposure to heat. As a result, the hair goes gray and white. But heat protection doesn’t just mean exposure to heat while styling hair. Use caps and umbrellas whenever you step out in the sun. Avoid hot water bath. If you have already damaged your hair due to heat, apply nourishing hair packs to reverse the damage. The scalp gets moisturized with regular use of such cool conditioner hair packs. Once the normal pH level of the scalp gets restored, white hair follicles wither away. It further promotes new hair growth.

Eat Vitamin B12-Rich Food

No amount of expensive hair products would do good to hair as opposed to nutritious food. Vitamin B12 maintains the scalp health and heals hair against whitening. Eat fresh fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin B12 (yeast, cheese, avocados, oranges, plums, and cranberry) to develop a healthy diet. Soon the results show up, and hair growth is promoted. White hair strands get overshadowed with new growth, and finally, they fall away.
