Here are the top natural remedies for grey hair that are known to quickly reverse premature graying hair without the need for any toxic and unnatural looking hair dyes...
To get rid of grey hair you need a combination of internal and external treatments. Internal treatments are the most important, simply because if you do have gray hair then you actually have more sinister and life threatening things going on inside of you!
The main cause of grey hair is a lack of the essential nutrients, especially vitamin A and B group vitamins, along with the minerals copper, iron and zinc. Copper in particular is not only necessary for hair pigmentation, it is needed by the body to maintain the health of the artery walls and without it you end up with what’s known as elastic fibre breakdown. When this occurs the arterial walls become weak, eventually causing an aneurism (the ballooning of an artery or blood vessel). This is a life threatening condition as it can burst, resulting in either severe stroke or death. 1
A good case in point is Albert Einstein. If you ever saw pictures of him in his later years you would instantly recognize his bright silver grey hair.
Einstein died of a ruptured aneurism!
So your first course of action for successfully treating gray hair is to start taking a good liquid colloidal mineral supplement such as these. Colloidal minerals contain ALL the minerals your body needs in a highly absorbable form.
You may need to take extra colloidal copper as well until your grey hair recedes. Colloidal copper also makes an excellent external treatment for reversing grey hair. Simply soak a couple of cotton balls with colloidal copper, apply to the scalp and massage/rub in.
Be sure to also supplement with black strap molasses as this is rich in essential vitamins and minerals (many people swear by this supplement as a natural remedy for grey hair), along with the very powerful Fo-ti herb, which actually translates to "black-haired Mr. He" (black haired man) in Chinese. This herb has been reported to reverse grey hair very quickly for many people (you can read some positive testimonials here). With Fo-ti, you can either take supplements, buy it as a tea, or actually buy the root and make your own tea everyday.
In addition to these, cereal grasses such as wheat and barley grass are an excellent source of vitamin A and the B group vitamins along with copper, iron, silica and zinc and should also be supplemented with everyday.
You can click on the links on this website or visit your local health food store to purchase any of these supplements.
And finally, remember this important point about curing your grey hair... if the bad stuff’s going away on the outside, it’s definitely going away on the inside as well!!
As your gray hair recedes you will find your natural colour grows from the roots outward. This can make your hair look a bit strange at first but stick with it and eventually your hair will return back to its original colour.
The most important thing is to not worry about what other people think.
I remember quite a few years ago working with a guy who was very paranoid about his greying hair. I suggested he start taking a liquid colloidal mineral supplement and cereal grass - which he did. As his hair colour began to return to normal the people he worked with started to make fun of his hair, calling him “Mr Grecian 2000”. The sad part is he actually listened to them and stopped taking the supplements. (All of a sudden he decided he looked better with gray hair). I tried to tell him that by curing his grey hair he was also curing the damage that was going on inside his body, but unfortunately, he didn’t listen.
I often wonder how healthy he is today or if he's even still alive.
So now you know how to treat and cure your grey hair permanently. But if you really don’t like the idea of having different pigmented hair until your original colour returns, here are some topical home remedies to help speed up the process and hide those unwanted grey's…
Onion Juice Mixed With Lemon Juice is a Powerful Remedy for Grey Hair:
Onion juice is rich in the enzyme catalase and has been used for centuries as a topical treatment and home remedy for grey hair. In fact, herbalists have been advising their patients to rub onions on their scalps to cure grey hair long before any hair dyes were ever invented!
Back in 2009, Bradford University in the UK discovered that a build up of hydrogen peroxide in the hair follicles and scalp caused thinning and grey hair. They also discovered that the catalase enzyme neutralizes hydrogen peroxide and reverses grey hair.
So rubbing onions and onion juice mixed with lemon on your scalp everyday is a very potent natural remedy for grey hair (the only down side is of course the smell). Wheat grass and barley grass are also rich in catalase so mix up a paste and rub this onto your scalp everyday as well.
Gooseberries as a Gray Hair Cure:
You actually drink gooseberry juice every day along with mixing up a combination of dried gooseberries and coconut or almond oil, which you then rub and massage into your scalp every night. The best type of gooseberry if you can find it is the Indian gooseberry known as “amla”.
Curry Leaves are an Easy-Made Home Remedy for Gray Hair:
This hair tonic is known to help promote darker pigmentation of hair due to its high level of B group vitamins and is best combined with coconut oil for a more potent mix. Throw a handful of curry leaves into an average size pot of boiling water. Add 1 to 2 tablespoons of coconut oil and boil for 6 to 8 minutes, or until the leaves turn black. Remove and leave to cool for 20 minutes before straining the oil into a container. Massage your scalp and hair with the oil 4 to 5 times a week, preferably before bedtime. Leave on overnight and wash off in the morning.
Henna - Another Very Good Natural Remedy for Grey Hair:
Mix up some castor oil and lemon juice until it goes frothy then add some henna. Apply the mixture to your hair and scalp and leave it on for at least an hour before washing and shampooing your hair. Repeat every day.
Rosemary and Sage - Excellent Home Remedy for Gray Hair:
Take half a cup of rosemary and half a cup of sage and boil in water for 30 minutes. Allow to cool for 2–3 hours then apply to hair and scalp. Leave on until it dries then shampoo off with natural shampoo. Repeat every week and eventually all grey hair will be gone.
Amaranth for Grey Hair:
Amaranth is a nutrient packed vegetable that looks similar to spinach. It works a treat on reversing grey hair by restoring the hairs natural color. Simply apply the juice from some fresh amaranth leaves onto your scalp and gently massage in. Leave on for 30 minutes before washing off.
Oil and Olive Oil Are Also Excellent Grey Hair Remedies:
Black seed oil and olive oil have both been used for thousands of years to treat and cure gray hair. The other big benefit of using black seed and olive oil is they make your hair look shiny and healthy and also promote the growth of new hair follicles. Simply mix up an equal amount of olive oil and black seed oil and massage into the scalp. Wash out with warm water after an hour. Repeat daily. You can also take black seed oil internally for extra benefit. A teaspoon twice a day will do the trick.
This last home remedy for grey hair is very important. Make sure you stay away from all chemical shampoos, hair colourings and dyes. These nasty products not only damage your hair and scalp, they can literally kill you with their toxic poisons! So only ever use completely natural shampoos and conditioners (you need to get good at reading labels).
Also avoid all processed foods and coffee as these leach valuable nutrients such as copper, iron and zinc from the body. Instead, substitute coffee for green tea (it’s no coincidence that you rarely see a Japanese person under the age of 60 with grey hair and they also happen to be the biggest consumers of green tea in the world) along with eating plenty of organic fruits, vegetables and herbs such as garlic.
Finally, avoid smoking and stress. Not only are these two of the biggest killers in the world today, they actually contribute to grey hair more than anything else!
