Do you often search on Google- 'How can I blacken my hair naturally at home ?' Or ‘How can I make my hair permanently black?' Grey hair are not a synonym for old age anymore. Pollution, chemical-based products, nutritional deficiencies, stress, and hormonal imbalance adds fuel to the fire of early whitening of hair. Instead of plucking those silver lines, try our grey hair reversal natural remedies.

Premature grey hair treatment at home

To reduce grey hair naturally, try these simple home remedies for white hair. Who needs custom hair products when we have nature with us?

1.Henna Pack

Dry roast amla powder until it turns black. Let it cool down. Boil water in the vessel. Add cloves and tea leaves to it. Let it simmer until it reduces to half. Strain it and let it cool down.

You can re-adjust the consistency as well.

How to apply

Apply it on your scalp 30-40 minutes before shampooing. Regular use of this pre-wash will further slow down the process of greying at the young age.

Alternate remedy

You can also apply freshly squeezed onion juice to your scalp twice a week.

Tips: Natural Way to stop grey hair

Although these remedies will give you good coverage, you should follow these do's and don'ts for a permanent solution to premature grey hair.

  • The deficiency of Vitamin B-12 is one of the major reasons for premature greying of hair. Adequate consumption of vitamin B12 supplementation can help reverse white hair and restore original hair color. Vitamin B 12 for hair is believed to be one of the top nutrients to reserve early greying of hair. Cold pressed oils like sesame oil is very rich in Vitamin B12
  • Protection from the sun- Grey hairs are not a reflection of wisdom anymore. Harmful UV rays of the sun damage our hair follicles and give them a dull appearance. Use hair sunscreen and cover them with a hat or scarf before stepping out.
  • Say NO to chemical products- Bleaching, hot tools, and harsh shampoos weaken them and make them incapable of producing their color pigment. Use a mild shampoo and air dry your hair to maintain its health.
  • Live stress-free- Stress and depression bring a hormonal change in your body which causes premature greying. Regular practice of yoga and meditation can put pause to premature greying of hairs naturally.
  • Quit tobacco and reduce caffeine- Smoking affects the melanin production process of hair and leads to early greying. Likewise, excessive intake of caffeine causes hindrance to the health of hair.

Did you know

Moderate consumption of caffeine aids in healthy hair growth.

Can grey hair naturally turn black?

It is not possible to turn grey hair black again. Many companies and even promotional blogs may promise you the reversal of white hairs, but it is nothing more than a marketing tactic. Change in diet and herbal remedies can slow down the greying rate of hair, but by any means, they cannot restore the melanin lost in your hair follicles.

What food makes hair black?

Certain foods are rich in the nutrients required for black hair. Add a punch of power into your daily diet to get jet black hair. Foods that can turn your white hair black are:

  • Ginger
  • Ashvagandha or Indian ginseng
  • Black sesame seeds- 1 tablespoon 2-3 times a week
  • Amla juice- 90 ml daily
  • Wheatgrass juice- 60 ml daily

How to dye grey hair naturally?

Nature has given us several ingredients to color our grey hair naturally without using chemical dye. Henna and Indigo are the most popularly used natural dyes to color your hair naturally. You can follow our DIY hair dye recipe for the good health of your hair and scalp.
