It’s a matter of fact that as we grow older, grey hairs start to set in. For most people, it doesn’t happen until much later in life, but for some, premature grey hair can happen quite early in their lives. We all know greying is natural however losing your natural hair colour can really knock out your confidence.
This happens when the production of melanin, the pigment responsible for the colour of our hair, falls. Heredity is a major reason for hair greying. Whilst there’s no cure for going grey, we’ve got some great tips that’ll teach you how to stop grey hair setting in too soon.
How to prevent grey hair
Making certain lifestyle changes can help delay the greying of hair. Experts say that smoking can cause hair to look dull, discoloured, and brittle. Dyeing and bleaching should not be done excessively, and, if at all, with herbal dyes, at a trichologist facility. It is also important to use the right home hair care product. The award-winning ADV Age-Defying Shampoo provides hydration and helps prevent scalp aging.
What foods to eat?
Make sure your diet contains important vitamins, along with minerals like iron and zinc! Generally, deficiency of vitamin B-complex causes premature greying of hair. Blueberries & nuts especially sunflower seeds are rich in them! Salmon and tuna are good sources of protein and omega-3 fatty acids which also aids in preventing premature greying. Fun fact: Black strap molasses can even facilitate the production of melanin!

Blending of buttermilk and curry leaves is an age-old remedy for treating premature grey hair. Other than being an amazing source of probiotics that improves digestive health, it is also a rich source of lactic acid that acts as a natural condition for our hair. It increases the smoothness of hair and makes it more manageable. It also helps in preventing premature greying of hair.
Rosemary and Sage Treatment
Rosemary and sage are widely used for treating various skin and hair conditions. Rosemary works effectively in promoting hair growth and checks hair fall. It improves the pigmentation process of hair, thereby preventing premature hair greying. It also helps in treating dandruff and itchiness of the scalp. Sage also helps in preventing the premature greying of hair, and it it’s a great alternative from counter products.
Argan oil is also an effective solution to aging hair when used in combination with botanical based shampoo. It is important that your daily hair cleaner contains no sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), gluten, artificial colors, unpleasant additives, parabens and DEA. The nutrients in the argan oil encourage melanocytes to begin producing. The melanin protein is mainly responsible for your natural black pigment. Use a trichologist-certified variant, like the AVD Argan Oil, which contains various beneficial natural ingredients.
