Yoga and Naturopathy for Hair Graying

Hair follicles contain pigment cells that produce melanin, which gives your tresses their color. As we get older, the pigment cells in our hair follicles gradually die. When there are fewer pigment cells in a hair follicle, that strand of hair will no longer contain as much melanin and will become a more transparent color  like gray, silver, or white  as it grows. People can get gray hair at any age.


Preventive Measures for premature greying of hair:  Keep your scalp clean. Give space to iron and vitamin rich diet in your meal. Avoid smoking. Avoid caffeine, junk food and alcohol. Ease stress with yoga. Do exercise. Never wash hair with hot water. Never comb your wet hair.
