Your hair color depends on the pigment cells which are located at the base of every hair follicle. AS you age, these pigment cells die out and their efficiency significantly reduces. When your body stops producing the pigments, your hair starts becoming white and colorless. But, believe it or not this process of gray hair can be prevented by protecting and nourishing your scalp and base of your hair follicles. The healthier your base and pigment cells are, the longer you’ll be free of grey hair.
According to scientific research, grey hair can be caused by factors such as:
- Hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Hormonal imbalance
- Genetic disorders
- Nutritional Deficiency
- Using hair dyes and electric dryers
Although hair dyes can be used for coloring grey hair, it is best to avoid them since they’re filled with chemical substances that damage your hair. If you want to dye your hair, it is best to do it with natural products.
Lucky for you, there is a homemade natural solution that makes your hair look amazing. The best thing about this remedy is that it’s totally natural and that it has no harmful or unwanted side-effects.
