Introduction: What Causes Grey or White Hair?

Grey hair can be a nightmare, especially for women. This is a universal and widespread problem that occurs when melanocytes around the hair follicle reduces the amount of melanin it produces (or stops completely). The hair is mainly made from a protein called keratin, and as the hair grows, the melanocytes around the hair follicle inject melanin into the cortex of the hair shaft, which results in its dark color. Keratin without melanin is a yellowish grey color, so when the melanocytes slow down, the hair begins to lose its color.

There are several causes for this decrease in melanin production. Some are natural—such as genetics, age, and natural chemical changes in the body. Other causes are due to extrinsic factors that may be treatable, such as diet and stress. Many chemical hair colors contain ammonia, which is an industrial bleaching agent and severely harms the hair in the long run. Always avoid chemical based shampoos and use herbal ones instead. Other extrinsic causes can be more difficult to avoid, like pollution.

Finding a Natural Cure, or Using Ayurvedic Medicine

Grey hair is normally associated with old age, though it can also be seen in young people. My son began finding his first grey hairs at the age of 19, while my great-grandmother did not have a single white hair when she died at the age of 85.

My great-grandmother practiced traditional Indian, or Ayurvedic, medicine, and the remedies collected here are from her. They worked wonders on my son, especially the focus on his diet. I am 50 years old, and for me the results are evident but not as prominent, as I am irregular and careless with the remedies.

For those who are not familiar with Ayurvedic medicine, it uses nature to supplement the body's deficiencies and strengthen the immune system. As the saying goes, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. It is always best to turn to nature for remedies before going to a doctor, because modern medicines generally cure one problem but, like a metastasis, cause other, sometimes graver, side effects. It is my endeavor to provide all-natural resources so that you can avoid such adverse effects.

These natural remedies are far better than the chemical dyes that leech into the skin and may cause cancer.

My son began finding grey hairs very early, during his teenage years. Now, his hair is healthy and black after a few Ayurvedic diet changes.

In this article, you will find:

  • Natural dyes that impart color to the white hair and need repeated applications.
  • Remedies that boost the production of melanin pigment and keratin protein in the hair, which causes the color of the hair.
  • Diet and massage tips to further boost the production of melanin and keratin.

There are many options, but many include rare ingredients that are difficult for the common man to find fresh in the store—for these, I have included where you can find them online. I recommend reading through them and finding the one that works best for you.

If available, choose black sesame seeds for these remedies. Because they have not been hulled, they retain more nutrients than white sesame seeds. However, both are rich in trace minerals and vitamin B. This remedy will reduce hair loss and turn white hair black.

Ingredients:

  • Sesame seeds
  • Water

Directions:

  1. Soak the sesame seeds in water to make them soft.
  2. Use a food processor to mash them into a paste. You can also do this with a mortar and pestle, but the food processor is much less effort.

Both sesame and shankhapushpi (Latin name: Convolvulus pluricaulis; also known as English speed wheel) are excellent for hair. The shankhapushpi plant has white or light-blue flowers, and is found 1800 meters above sea level. It is used to cure thyroid problems, epilepsy, and coughs, and it is said to improve memory.

The regular massage of either sesame or shankhapushpi oil helps turn white hair black by stimulating melanin and keratin production. Here are a few other ways of using these plants besides the sesame seed recipe above:

  1. Boil the roots and leaves of sesame plant and wash the hair with the extract to turn white hair black.
  2. Another option is to buy the readily available black sesame oil. Boil it, and, when it returns to a temperature that is warm but not hot, massage it throughout your hair to slow premature greying. This will also keep the hair soft, black, and dense.
  3. Prepare shankhapushpi oil in the same way (by boiling it and allowing it to cool to a comfortable temperature). You can also use oil from the dwarf morning glory (Latin name: Evolvulus alsinoides). The regular application of these oils turn white hair black.

Diet Choices That Impact Hair

Your skin, hair, and health all reflect the nutrition you are getting. If you are young and are already seeing grey hairs, your diet could be the cause. These two diet remedies to regain black hair are best for young people.

Eat healthily so that your hair gets all of the nutrients it needs.
Eat healthily so that your hair gets all of the nutrients it needs.

For a healthy and balanced diet, you must be sure to:

  • Consume Vitamin-Rich Foods: In order to prevent and delay the graying process of hair, make sure to get sufficient amounts of vitamins B and E daily. Cashew nuts, almonds, walnuts, fresh fruits, and vegetables are all good sources for these vitamins. Also decrease your sodium intake, because sodium speeds up the appearance of grey hair.
  • Drink Lots of Water: A lot of toxins get deposited in the body when the endocrine system malfunctions. This leads to many health problems, including premature aging and grey hair. Drink up to 10-12 glasses of water daily to flush out these harmful toxins.
  • Avoid Junk Food: Hair can become grey due to malnutrition and overconsumption of fast food or junk food. Instead, eat natural foods that are high in iron, calcium, vitamin B, and vitamin C. Options include fresh fruits, lemon juice, vegetable soups, etc.

14. Indian Gooseberry and Bhringraj Remedy

Eat this daily for longevity, black hair, and sharp eyesight. It is best to mix and boil these remedy in a clay pot; since you are consuming the contents, you do not want them to oxidize, as they would in a metal container.

Ingredients:

  • Indian gooseberry (Latin name: Phyllanthus emblica; also known as amla)
  • Bhringraj juice (Latin name: Eclipta Alba; also known as bhangra)

Directions:

  1. Make a thick powder of Indian gooseberry and place it in a plate of Chinese clay.
  2. Cover it with the bhringraj juice so that the Indian gooseberry is completely soaked.
  3. Boil the contents, then dry them.
  4. Take three to five grams daily with fresh water.

It is also possible to buy powdered bhringraj, which makes it extremely easy to add to your diet. Just add bhringraj, Indian gooseberry, and triphala (optional) to water and drink!

 

15. Triphala and Bhringraj Remedy

Like the previous remedy, this nourishes hair and sharpens eyesight. Triphala means "three fruits," namely the Indian gooseberry, bahera (Latin name: Terminalia bellirica), and hurd (Latin name: Terminalia chebula) that it's made out of. It comes in a powder and is one of the most important Ayurvedic medicines. It's easily available in the market.

Ingredients:

  • Triphala
  • Indian gooseberry (Latin name: Phyllanthus emblica; also known as amla)
  • Bhringraj juice (Latin name: Eclipta Alba; also known as bhangra)

Directions:

  1. Boil the triphala and Indian gooseberry in the Bringraj juice.
  2. Dry the resulting mixture.
  3. Take two to three grams of the resulting powder with water in the mornings daily.

A Massage to Stimulate Melanin Production

You can stimulate melanin and keratin production by massaging your scalp.

16. Oil Massage Delays Hair Graying

For an oil massage, you can use almond, olive, mustard, coconut, Indian gooseberry, or mango kernel oil. Whichever oil you choose, be sure to buy it fresh and organic, and to use that particular oil over time to get better results.

Directions:

  1. One hour before washing your hair, massage the oil into your scalp, then comb it through the rest of your hair.
  2. After an hour, wash your hair normally.

Other Remedies

  • Massage butter oil into your scalp and hair daily before your shower.
  • Eat sesame.
  • Regularly wash hair with a gram flour and milk/curd mixture.
  • Rub hair regularly with onion paste, and it will turn black.
  • Take a multivitamin containing minerals like zinc and copper, which prevent premature graying.
  • Rub crushed raw or unripe papaya into hair for 10 minutes to cure dandruff and hair loss.
  • Mix Indian gooseberry powder with lemon juice and rub the resulting paste into hair regularly. The white hairs will become black.
  • Add black pepper and a spoonful of lemon juice to half a cup of curd. Rub it into hair, then wash after 15 minutes. The hair will become black with regular application.
  • Rot leeches in red wine for 45 days, then apply the liquid to your hair to turn white hair black.

N.B. Any one or all the above remedies can be used at the same time.

Questions & Answers

  • Are these remedies also effective to turn a white beard black? Is it advisable to massage onion paste on the beard?

  • What is the best color restoration remedy for a white beard?

    The curry leaves remedy is the best for a beard.

    All remedies are equally effective as per the age. The options are given because all the constituents may not be available at all the places.

      Dear Zubair A. Curry leaves could be eaten, but apply a paste of curry leaves on hair. Use remedy 4. Coconut Oil and Curry Leaf Remedy, as explained above.

      Thank you for this very comprehensive and detailed method for treating white hairs! :)

      I've been looking around and I have been considering using curry leaves for the gray hairs I have.

      However, in your article, you say that it is best for younger people. Do you mean like teenagers? I am 32, am I too old for that method?
