Our hair starts turning grey because melanin is being produced less as we grow older. But this can be inconvenient if we are too young to have greys, especially in out private body parts. One of the solutions is to dye hair, but is can be also aggressive and unhealthy since dye contains dangerous chemicals. The other solution is to do it natural way, and we have the recipe: Onion Juice Mixed with Lemon Juice.
How to prepare it:
Peel the onions and chop them into small pieces, then squeeze the juice lemon by using a blender, grater or a juicer. Mix altogether and massage into your scalp or cover the bald patches. Leave it on for at least 15 minutes and then wash your hair with a shampoo.
This natural remedy really works, mainly due to powerful enzymes in onion. This recipe had been known long before hair dye was invented.
What could you additionally do to slow down the greying process?
Boost vitamin intake
The lack of vitamin B12 causes hair follicles to produce less melanin. By increasing intake of vitamin A and B you can help the melanin production. Add food rich in these vitamins, like bananas, leafy vegetables and fruits, also cauliflower, tomato, yogurt and cereals. Eggs and meat are rich in these vitamins as well.
Use Henna on Your Hair
Instead of using ordinary hair conditioners, try using Henna. Apply it one hour prior to taking bath. It strengthens your hair and decreases the greying and whitening process of hair.
Include Iodine Rich Food In Your Diet
Iodine is very important for our body and all vital functions. Seafood is rich in iodine, and iodine can be found in carrots and bananas also. Start using sea salt instead of regular salt.
Lower stress and unhealthy habits
Stress can also cause premature hair greys. Try reducing stress levels at minimum level and if smoking and drinking, try quitting since it is harmful to your health at whole.
