- Amla Juice or Juice of Indian Gooseberry
Amla or Indian gooseberry being the richest source of Vitamin C and Iron is excellent for a variety of hair problems including premature graying hair. While, you can consume the fruit in a variety of ways, the best way to reap its anti-aging and hair revitalizing benefits is to drink its juice diluted in warm water on an empty stomach.
In addition to consuming the juice, you can also apply amla oil and amla pulp on your hair and scalp before shampooing.
Last, I would say to stay away from chemically laden hair products. These can include shampoos, hair dyes, hair colors, bleaches, or hair straightening and smoothening products.
Resist the urge to color gray with hair dyes as the chemicals in such products will not only damage your hair and scalp, but can also harm your health with their toxic poisons.
Also try to eat as healthy as possible. Avoid processed foods, alcohol, and caffienated drinks. These leach valuable nutrients such as copper, iron and zinc from the body.
Finally, do your best to include regular exercise and some stress management activity in your life. Avoid smoking and stress at all costs . Not only are these two of the biggest killers in the world today, they actually contribute to grey hair more than anything else.
