Have a Few Greys? Here’s Why & How You Can Reverse Premature Greying
Whether you are 25 or 30, you might have encountered a grey hair or two and it is bothersome. Here’s what you need to know about what could be the cause, and our recommendation on how you can reverse premature greying.
While going grey is part of life, getting them earlier than people who are of the same age as you is definitely a bit disheartening and confusing. Read on to learn why some of us get to experience greys earlier than others.
The main reason for grey hair surfacing at an early age has to boil down to genes. If your grandmother or mother have grey hair at an early age, chances are you will experience them in your early years as well.
2. Vitamin Deficiency
Lack of vitamin B-6, B-12, D, E and biotin can contribute to premature greying of hair as it affects the hair’s pigmentation. With the right vitamin supplementation, you might be able to reverse premature greying.
If your diet consists of high intake of sugar, salt, processed food and cold drinks, you might want to cut down on these. An imbalance diet can increase the risk of free radical generation in the body that speeds up growth of grey hair.
Studies show that people who smoke are more likely to experience greying before the age of 30 compared to non-smokers. The toxins in cigarette smoke have negative impacts on the hair follicles that cause grey hair earlier than expected.
5. Chemical Hair Products
Chemical hair products such as shampoos and hair dyes contain ingredients that are harmful to the scalp and hair which result in decreased melanin, leaving your hair white when used for a long period.
Hence, it is important to use the right hair products to care for our scalp and hair.
