“If the world is ending, a woman will want time to fix her hair” by Robert Jordan.Beauty of a woman is enhanced by her hair.Generally in poems or stories the writerdescribes the beauty of a woman character by her long, black hairs, remember the story of Rapunzel. What if Rapunzel was having grey hair? Shocking? We can’teven imagine about it. Premature graying of hair is a nightmare for any girl.After 40’s to have gray hair is quite natural. But at the age of 20’s to have grey hairs is just not digestible.
I have heard about few herbal remedies which can help to reduce the premature graying of hair. Most of these elements are known to us and easily available at our home.
Following Ways To Prevent Premature Graying Of Hair:
Indian Gooseberry Or Amla
Amla is a very well known fruit in India. We can call it a hair friendly fruit. It is very effective for premature graying of hair and hair fall too. It is one of the richest sources of antioxidant vitamin C. If it is incorporated in our regular diet, it will ensure not only healthy hair but a complete healthy body.Amla should be used from childhood so that you can have healthy hair. In case of graying undoubtedly it is very helpful.

Gooseberry powder or crushed gooseberry can be mixed with lemon juice and then apply it to your hair.Mix gooseberry powder with fenugreek powder and then add it to coconut oil.Put this oil on low flame. Heat it for a while, let it cool down for sometime. Then strain this oil and apply it.Use amla in any of the above mentioned ways and see the results It will definitely blacken your hair.
Again another solution which is well known for treating gray hair is Henna or Mehandi.Applying Henna to your hair will not only blacken but also strengthens your hair.It will provide nourishment to the hairs.

Now a day’s herbal Mehandis are available in market in which various things are mixed with henna but it’s always preferred that it’s prepared at home.

This will not only add color to the hairs it will bring shine and bounce too.
Morning Walk- Barefoot
We all know how beneficial morning walk for our health is. But grannies used to say walk early morning in the park barefooted. Walking barefoot at early morning is good for eyes and it prevents premature graying of hairs also. So try this out.
A balanced diet is very essential for a healthy body. One can have healthy hairs with a healthy body only. Intake of all vitamins A, B, C, E, and K does wonders for hair growth. Add more of fresh fruits and vegetables in your diet. Swap aerated drinks with fresh lime or carrot juice. Instead of Pizza and Burger opt for fruit salad or yummy spinach salad.
Now it’s the turn of Iron. Vitamins should be accompanied by Iron. The diet should include sufficient quantity of Iron. According to the researchers women have a tendency of low hemoglobin level. It’s only because of low intake of Iron in their diet.Even if you are a vegetarian you can find various food items which are good source of Iron.Rather than taking supplements its better to add them in regular diet.
Our body needs care. Its just like a tree. If seedling is taken proper care it will become a fruitful tree. If we take care of body properly, lead a healthy lifestyle then we can control lot of problems. Remember lustrous, black hair remains in a healthy body.
