When I spoke to my 26-year-old soon-to-be-married cousin yesterday, I was surprised to learn that her biggest pre-marital concern is her prematurely greying hair. She put the appearance of greys in her hair down to the double dose of the virus she had suffered over the last two years – a milder version in the initial days and a second, more difficult bout later on. I cannot speak medically on the correlation of her illness with greying hair, however, I am familiar with how debilitating premature greying of hair can feel at such a young age and at such an important juncture in one’s life.
The scientific explanation for greying hair is a simple one – genetics play the strongest role in determining the status of grey hair2. However, other factors contribute to the greying of hair, which when controlled effectively can stop the rate at which the greying of hair occurs. These other causes include the natural process of ageing, nutrient deficiencies, hormonal diseases like Thyroid, and even smoking excessively3. The psychological effects of stress play a large role in greying as well.1
However, there is no reason for you to fret. By following these simple four steps, you will be able to manage the greying of your hair.
- TAKE A CUSTOMISED NEEDS TEST TO DETERMINE THE CAUSE OF GREYING HAIR
Every person is unique and so are their hair care needs and concerns. Hence, the first step to successfully controlling the greying of hair is to identify exactly what the root cause of the problem is. An effective way to do so is through the 3-step customised supplement test. From its very first step, this easy-to-perform online test asks you to choose your type of health concern – whether general or something catering to a special need. Then, it asks you to fill in your gender and age group. Based on these parameters, you can determine whether you need a little bit of help to build your immunity, or in the case of problems like greying hair, if you need vitamin supplements to target this problem specifically.4
- TRY UK’S NO. 1 VITAMIN BRAND NOW AVAILABLE IN INDIA – PERFECTIL
For greying hair especially, Perfectil by the brand Vitabiotics, is your best bet. The United Kingdom’s no. 1 vitamin brand is now available in India too. This beauty supplement aimed at skin, hair and nails has been clinically tested. It contains 20 micronutrients including biotin, zinc and selenium, which contribute to the nourishment of skin, hair and nails. Further, it does not contain artificial colours, preservatives, lactose, yeast or gelatin, and is gluten-free and cruelty-free. It is recommended that you take one tablet per day after your main meal to encourage a natural and healthy glow that results in beauty from within.4
- INCLUDE NATURAL INGREDIENTS IN YOUR DIET
Though Perfectil has been proven to show good results, you can always enhance the effects of taking beauty supplements by eating healthy and including certain nutrient-rich foods in your diet. These include copper-rich foods like cashews, potatoes, chickpeas, almonds, mushrooms, nuts and seeds; as well as Vitamin B-rich food sources such as curd, paneer, bananas, and carrots or a vegetable juice of your choice.3
- SWITCH TO CHEMICAL-FREE PRODUCTS
Another important yet easy-to-follow step in your battle against greying hair is to make the switch from regular chemical-laden hair products to natural ones available on the market.2 If you have the time and patience to make hair masks and hair packs with natural ingredients, you will undoubtedly benefit from them. If, however, you are unable to devote time to do this, there are a plethora of brands presenting all-natural chemical-free products.
The adoption of these four simple steps is what I advised my cousin, starting with incorporating Perfectil beauty supplement into her daily routine. I’m sure if you are suffering from a similar problem, you will benefit from doing this as well.
