Greyish moods!

Premature graying of hair is a problem which makes you feel depressed and miserable. What makes your hair gray at a young age? Mostly it is a hereditary problem , but there are also other problems that could cause premature graying.

Harsh chemicals

When your hair loses its natural shine it means it is deprived of its nutrients and slowly your hair turns gray. Stop using too much of chemicals in your hair as it quickens the graying process.


Lack of essential nutrients also can cause grayness. You eat lot of junk foods which are high in fat, sugar and calories and do not have any nutritive value. You deprive your body of the nutrients it needs and thereby your scalp and hair are also affected. When your hair does not receive any healthy flow of minerals, vitamins and zinc needed for lustrous hair, the result is dull hair for many and graying hair for some.

Regular care.

Regular care can help you fight premature graying. There are lots of natural treatments available and you should be persistent in using it before you see any results. Do not waste your money going to parlors as they charge you exorbitantly for something you can do yourself.
