There are hair issues, ones that get you all angry and riled up simply by existing like humidity, oil and a lot of frizz. Then, there are hair issues that cannot be simply discussed in public – grey hair! They say grey hair is sexy, but let’s just leave the cliché for men and those on the television screens. For us mere mortals, grey hair is a big dread.
For every female, especially teenager or adult, grey hair is a bane of life. It’s very annoying and yet so common. Also, it makes you look so much older than you actually are. What if someone calls you aunty just because you have a patch of grey hair sprouting out on your head while you go out? However, if you can flaunt grey hair with a confidence, it won’t be much of a problem, but still you should know how to tackle them.
1. Color your grey hair
The easiest way to deal with grey hair sprouting up is to color them. Make sure you use an ammonia-free hair color so that your hair doesn’t suffer any damage at all. You can opt for global rather than highlights if you want a more classy and sophisticated look. Get highlights if you want to be fun. Always choose dark shades of black or brown for global or a color that matches your natural hair tone. You can opt for reds and purples for highlights.
2. Natural remedies
If you want to avoid coloring your hair with artificial colors, you can go for black henna and amla mixture for your hair. The amla is known for its white hair reduction capabilities and the henna will cover your grey hair. The mixture is also great for preserving the silky texture of your hair. Remember if you use henna on your hair, then you will not be able to use over-the-counter hair colors.
Oiling your hair on a daily basis is extremely essential for maintaining a healthy mane and preventing grey hair. Make a mixture of coconut, almond oil and lemon juice and apply it on your hair to prevent formation of grey hair. You can also eat sesame seeds or apply sesame oil on your hair to prevent graying. Add coconut oil to chopped gourd and boil the mixture. Cool it down and fill up a bottle. Massage the mixture on your head daily to prevent graying as well.
4. Changes in your diet
Increase intake of dark green vegetables and yellow fruits. You need an adequate supply of vitamin B, which these foods are rich in. Take vitamin B12 supplements if you like or introduce sardines, tuna, salmon, beef, cheese, lamb and eggs along with milk in your diet plan to make up on less vitamin B in your body.
Make sure you follow these tips regularly and you will definitely see a significant decrease in grey hair and all too naturally with the exception of the coloring tip with off-the-counter colors.
