I got premature gray hairs in my early 30s in 2019, just when the pandemic struck. It came out of nowhere. I know it may be a combination of stress, health, and genetics. I’ve been regularly dying my hair, but I don’t dye my hair for at least four months in between because I don’t want to destroy my hair. Here is a picture of my current hair as proof.
I’ve tried the following so far that hasn’t worked for at least three months or more.
- B12 Vitamins
- Hair Oiling
- Hair vitamins
- Fish/Omega 3 pills
- Iron (Although I do feel better!)
What I am currently trying
- Clarifying Shampoo
- Eating Healthier
- Been trying for a long time, but I haven’t tried different foods. In general, I lack variety, vegetables and fruits.
Many have said it won’t reverse, but there is no harm in trying. If anyone has any suggestions, I am open to them!
On a side note, there are Reddit threads that offer insight, like this one: https://www.reddit.com/r/Biohackers/comments/n0jh82/has_anyone_reversed_hair_greying/
No scientific evidence supports the claim that gray hair can be reversed naturally. The hair-graying process is a normal part of aging and is caused by a reduction in the production of pigment (melanin) in the hair follicle. This reduction in melanin production is a natural process that occurs over time and is not reversible.
However, some natural remedies may temporarily cover up or hide gray hair. For example, some people use henna or other natural dyes to colour their hair. These dyes may help to cover up gray hair, but they will not reverse the graying process.
It is important to note that natural dyes or other hair products may have potential side effects, such as allergic reactions or dryness. Suppose you are interested in using natural remedies to cover up gray hair. In that case, speaking with a dermatologist or other healthcare professional is essential to discuss the potential risks and benefits.
Some medical treatments can help restore pigment to the hair, such as hair transplantation and using medications that stimulate melanin production. These treatments can be effective in some cases, but they are generally not considered “natural” remedies and may have risks and side effects.
The Gray Movement
The “gray hair movement” refers to a trend among some women who embrace their natural gray hair rather than dyeing it to cover up the gray. This trend has gained popularity recently, with some women seeing gray hair as a symbol of strength, confidence, and wisdom.
There are many reasons why some women embrace their gray hair. For some, the decision may be based on personal preference or a desire to embrace their natural appearance. Others may be motivated to avoid the time and expense of regularly dying or exposing their hair and scalp to potentially harmful chemicals.
While the gray hair movement has gained some popularity, it is essential to note that each person’s decision to embrace their gray hair is personal. Some women may feel more comfortable and confident with dyed hair, while others may feel more confident with their natural gray hair. Ultimately, the decision of whether or not to dye your hair is a personal one that should be based on your preferences and needs.
