Hello Shrnivash,

The main cause when we deal with premature greying of hair is when we get exposed to pollution and chemical products. Yes, our digestion and bad eating habits are also part of the same. The main thing to take care of, diet is to increase our protein intake.

Hair is made out of protein named keratin, with eating the right kind of food items, we can increase the protein intake and deal with the same. Even the presence of melanin decides the pigmentation of the hair, which helps in treating the cause very well. So here are a few things which need to be corrected.

So let us focus on what lifestyle changes we can make:

Eat:

  • Eating food which has a high amount of proteins are legumes, green leafy vegetables, nuts like almonds, walnuts etc.
  • Seeds like chia, pumpkin and flax seeds are also necessary.
  • Coconut water and even eating shredded coconut is found to be very beneficial for hair health.

Regular massaging of hair is important to take care of the pigmentation. Here are a few hair packs which you can try to deal with hair problem.

1. Methi seeds, methi seeds powder two tablespoons mixed with rose water helps in getting the hair's natural colour. Before applying methi seeds pack make sure you apply the oil at night, so the pack does not stick to hair.

2. Onion juice paste is another beneficial thing for hair health. This will ensure to deal with the same issue.

3. There is one more way of coconut oil massage, where you warm the coconut oil and add curry leaves to it, let it splutter. This will help in naturally colouring the hair.

Exercise:

Here is some exercise which you can start for your hair and scalp health.

  • Rubbing your nails with each other helps in the treatment of the hair health as it boosts the blood circulation to the scalp, hair and nails have the same type of protein involved.
  • Chakrasana is another asana which would be recommended for healthy hair.

Meditation:

While massaging your hair what you can do is close your eyes, and visualise your hair getting its natural colour back, making it healthy. You can take a deep breath, start healthy music in the background you can feel the blood circulation getting a boost. This will help in relaxation and ensuring healthy hair health.

Sleep:

Having a sound 7-8 hours of sleep is helpful in treating anybody problem, a healthy sleep leads to a healthy mind and body.

Hopefully, this will help you

Thank you

Dear health seeker shrinivas. 
The cause of premature greying can be told as 'lack of pigmentation '".that is just a symptomatic diagnosis, and not one that touches the root cause of the troubles. We must track that is responsible for the absence of pigmentation.
Among the many reasons that one could attribute is"worrying" but I know many young boys who worry the least and yet have grey hair.
Lack of sunlight is said to be the cause of lack of pigmentation. But we do observe that in many people those portions of the body exposed to sunlight, the hair had become grey and the hair in the covered portions remains black having thus observed, we may say that greying in cases is a protection provided by nature; the white hair reflects heat away and doesn't permit it to reach the scalp so much. as the black hair that absorbs heat. One could remember that there has been a habit of providing a white cover to umbrellas having a black cloth. The white cloth reflects away much of the heat and the black cloth takes the rest of it and thus provides a good cool shade.
In my experience, I have come across cases of premature greying turned black by the use of the juice of Indian gooseberry (aamalakam,aamla) or of the flowers and leaves shoe flower or hibiscus or jabakusum.
Both hibiscus and aamala when made into a paste and left over the hair turn them black perhaps due to the iron content in them or of some minerals content
An oil containing aamala, hibiscus curry leaves, hinna (mehndi) bhringraj, in coconut oil be prepared and applied will turn hair black again.
The use of shampoos and soaps for cleaning the hair is a bad habit and certainly responsible for falling off the hair. The use of these should be totally avoided instead use some herbal powders. Like Sheekakai, besan, reetha, and gooseberry, etc.
Hair health can not be viewed in isolation other than the overall health of the body for which consume lots of fruits and vegetables raw and cooked.  To the extent of 70%and rest from carbohydrates, beans, nuts,   coconut, Avoiding denatured, foodless foods, chillies spices and condiments and processed foods.
Also, avoid tea, coffee cola drinks animal products, food supplements.
  Your health issues of greying hair will be solved
