Time takes its toll and even the best of us get to feel its inexorable passing, so the sooner we accept this painful reality the more we’ll enjoy each single day. This doesn’t mean that we should do nothing about some of the immediate effects of aging and when it comes to hair, stopping premature graying is within our power. Eventually we might have to consider more permanent solutions such as dyeing the hair or even wearing a wig, but premature hair graying is called so for a reason.

Sometimes young people witness in disbelief the whitening of hair and sooner rather than later, the white hair becomes the dominant one. Prevention delivers great results and demands minimal sacrifices, as there is no pain in having a healthy diet full of vitamins and minerals. It goes without saying that we need to pay extra attention to the type of shampoo we use on a daily basis to avoid those rich in chemicals. A mild herbal shampoo for instance can work wonders in fighting premature hair greying.


Amla should be used regularly to blacken the hair and it also has the positive side effect if thickening it, in a similar manner to chamomile. Lemon water is another versatile product that we can easily make at home and it is just as beneficial as a drink as it is for washing the hair. These are just few natural remedies that are proven to work against premature hair graying, but used in conjunction they get the job done.

While you can’t stop nature from changing your hair color to gray, you can reverse the graying with some simple home remedies.
