How to Delay Premature Greying of Hair

Your hair responds to ageing as much as your skin does. Having grey strands in your 40s is natural. However, it can concern most people to have grey hair at a young age.

Premature greying of hair is one of the leading concerns among men and women, especially in India, where grey hair is often associated with old age.

However, the condition can be managed and improved. This blog discusses premature grey hair, factors that may worsen the condition, and some effective premature grey hair solutions.

What Does Ayurveda Say About Grey Hair?

Ayurveda’s approach roots in the three doshas - Pitta, Vata, and Kapha. According to Ayurveda, premature hair greying happens because of the vitiated Bhrajaka pitta, a subtype of Pitta dosha. This inhibits the production of melanin in the hair and results in premature greying.

Other Causes of Premature Grey Hair

While some individuals have a genetic tendency to grow grey hair at a young age, other factors include anaemia, prolonged exposure to UV rays, and excessive use of harsh chemicals on hair.

Natural Home Remedies for Premature Greying

While tons of hair dye treatments are available on the market, they have their fair share of side effects and negative implications. So, if you are looking for a safe yet effective premature grey hair remedy, here are three natural home remedies that can prevent premature hair greying and, sometimes, may even reverse the damage.

Lemon and Almond Mask

Myths surrounding grey hair

  • Myth - Plucking grey hair strands will make them pop‌ and they will multiply at a faster rate. 
    Truth - This is far from the truth. There’s only one hair per follicle, which means if you pluck a grey hair, you will get a new grey hair in its place.
  • Myth - Grey hair is a sign of old age.
    Truth - Grey hair can crop up for a number of reasons ranging from genetics to lack of Vitamin B12, nasal concerns, or health concerns relating to the pituitary or thyroid glands.
