Premature greying of hairs.

Going grey is inevitable but some of us are genetically predisposed to go grey much earlier than others. A diet lacking in vitamin B has been found to accelerate greying. So you may bump up your intake of vitamin B to get rid of this premature graying or at least to delay the process of such premature greying. Besides, avoid washing dry hair everyday as it does not need it. And when you do wash, dilute your shampoo. Try to follow these few tips which I am sure would definitely help you.

I will remind my self as well, but also genetics too has a role. There are times when it is hereditary and nothing we can do to change it at times as genetics plays a role too.

Yes, genetics has definitely a role. But apart from it, there are many other factors which we may try to get rid of. We all know genetic factors can never be changed.

i started to quit coloring my hair because i got tired of buying the same old color. If it grays prematurely. I don't think I care because I am already 35 years old. If it turns gray it will probably be salt and pepperish and really pretty. I am a year older than Taylor hicks

I think you right in your decision. There is nothing to worry if you have grey hairs.

I have a freind who is now 39. She started greying at 22! She has been coloring her hair ever since! I do have some grey hair but it doesn't bother me right now. I am 49. Since 24 I have been plunking grey hair out of my eyebrows. In the last few years I have seen a few grey hairs by my temples.I have been lucky I guess! What you said about what could cause pre-maturing grey,this is the first I have heard of it! It could be possible.

What I have mentioned are all presumptions by different experts in that particular field.

Well, I've definitely never heard that diluting shampoo will help to delay the development of gray hair. I know that I have a few hairs that are starting to turn gray, but it is something that I am willing to accept because of the fact that my mother has some gray in her hair as well. However, I really do think that it will be several years before my hair turns completely gray because she isn't completely gray yet.

Good idea. Thank you for letting me know that I need to take more vitamin B. I don't want to end up with a full head of grey hair in my early age. Hmm. Dilute my shampoo before washing my hair. How do i go about doing that? do i add water to my shampoo container?

Yes,i agree. Vitamin is very important to help in the hair greying. I personally experience this before. Previously,i had a lot of grey hair. But 1-2months after i took vitamin B, the condition became better and improve. And i shared this with my sister who has the same problem and this help her as well.

Yes, it seems to be a genetic thing. I remember the first one I saw on my head. My girlfriend was staying with me and we were getting ready to go out. I was in the bathroom doing my hair and make-up when I saw the grey thing. I let out this blood curtling scream. My girlfriend, thinking I had incountered another of the huge, obnoxious spiders we had been finding in the tub, comes dashing into the bathroom out of breath. My eyes were about to pop out of my head. She and I laughed. I agree there are some healthy ways to for go getting them for awhile.

I had a girlfriend who started going gray in high school and by the time she was 25 she was completely white-haired. I always thought it looked hot on her. She is such a pretty lady anyway, but the white hair just really adds to her looks. It does not make her look old at all. I remember when I was a kid watching Mission:Impossible on TV and Peter Graves was so handsome and he had a head full of gray hair like my friend. I just think gray hair on a young person looks really beautiful! Now, in my family, my brother grayed a little prematurely but not too much, and the rest of us have all kept our hair color pretty much late into our 50s so no premature gray here. Even in their 70s and 80s my parents never went completely gray. My biggest problem is facial hair. I know that as we age, women lose some female hormones and gain in testosterone, the male hormone, which is why we gain facial hair where we once had none but it is a major annoyance. I tend to develop nearly a full beard and moustache if I don't keep on top of it...and they are wiry hairs like my gray hairs...not soft like I would like them to be. I tweeze as much as I can and at one time did go through electrolysis (which did not work, by the way) but I just cannot keep on top of them. I am now looking into getting an electric shaver. My mother at one point started shaving with a disposable razor but it just left her chin looking sore and in need of healing so I have been reluctant to start shaving at all. Still, the tweezing is painful so I do have plans to get an electric shaver and hope that it is kinder to my face than my mother's old disposable was to hers.
