Premature greying of hairs can be a result of vitamin deficiencies particularly Vitamin B-6,B-12, ,Vitamin D or Vitamin  E while some other factors could be genetic and it can be due to oxidative stress too. 
Some other causes aligning to cause greying could be medical conditions like thyroid dysfunction or hormonal imbalances

The main cause for premature greying of hair is just like premature aging of our body. Both are results of low vitality and high level of toxaemia in the body. It can be a sign of inherited genetic weakness too. 

This can be reversed by following a completely nature based lifestyle and food habits. And the reversal will take time but it can always happen. 

1 Learn pranayam and yoga for relaxing your mind, improving your flexibility and activating your lymphatic system.

2 Get good sun exposure either in the early hours of the morning or a couple of hours before sunset. 

3 Get in touch with Mother Earth. Do some gardening with your hands or atleast walk barefoot on sand or mud. Sit in parks or lie on the ground or lawns and relax.

4 Keep an eye on your bowel movement. See to it that your bowels are always functioning normally. Eliminate larger quantities than what you eat.

5 Rest and relax well. Sleep in the earlier part of the night and sleep through the night. Wake up before or with the sun.

6 Be well hydrated. Consume lot of juicy fruits veggies and greens to hydrate yourself well.

7 Start your day with juicy seasonal and local fresh fruits. Start as late in the morning as possible. Consume around 50% of fruits 35% of veggies 10 % of grains or sprouts  and 5 % of nuts. Finish your last meal before the sun sets.  Don’t eat if you are not hungry and never over eat . Try to be on raw food atleast 80%.

8 Be happy always. Don’t let life’s negativities to bog you down. Always be positive.

Follow these principles and as you go on eliminating toxins and discarding all damaged unhealthy tissues you will start seeing a great change in your overall health. Slowly with time new tissues will build up and as your hair go into the renewal mode you will see more of black hairs coming out. 

This procedure could take a couple of years to show results..... so be patient.

If you need any assistance during the cleansing or healing crises do not hesitate to get in touch 

Be healthy be happy always

Premature greying is also related to premature aging. When cells in the body see a need to grow faster, they need more oxygen than usual for their growth, they grow faster. 

The main reason for such things can sometimes be the abnormal increases in harmones in the body. Harmones come from animal products majorly. Stop that and for sometime you will see a hairfall of all the bad hair and new growth will start over time. What has become grey may not be reversed, but the further greying can be controlled by a good lifestyle majorly with fruits. Fruits ensure longevity and health both. Raw vegetables also do it, but fruits do that job of cleanup very much. Another reason is to keep off the body from all forms of chemicals - may it be soaps, shampoos or adulterated oils. Body also can not tolerate hot water as it spends energy in cooling it. It’s best to take head bath with body temp body. Don’t expose the hair to breeze that will disturb the roots when we go out in an open vehicle like a scooter. 

Hygiene factors like this help the hair.

Use of Hibiscus petals natural pressed oil 

Castor oil and olive oil.

Keep it overnight all these oils can be combined and can be used anytime anywhere.

And this may sound a bit smelly .. but do add onion juice to Castro’s oil and wash off in the morning with normal sulphate and paraben free shampoo. Parabens are the most widely used preservatives in cosmetics and personal care products such as soap, moisturizers, shaving cream and underarm deodorant, according to the Food and Drug Administration. So kindly purchase as good shampoo for regular use . And get your vitamins checked time to time. 

Vitamin E in vegetables like pumpkins and avocados is really beneficial to restore hair health
