Nobody wants to look old, but the old age comes nevertheless. And with it comes the sure shot signs that indicate that the person is way past his/her prime. One of the most common indicators is the greying of hair. Hair fall is common as well, but mostly in men. Women suffer from greying hair faster than men do and there are some genetic things other than the lifestyle choices that can cause the hair to change their natural colour way before the old age approaches. But there are some sure shot ways to tackle this dreaded occurrence which we are going to mention below.
1. Protein intake
If there was a list of top nutrients that a human body needs most, protein will surely be there on the top. It not only builds necessary muscles, it does wonders for the hair as well. So if you happen to be in your 20’s or the 30’s, start taking in more and more protein to maintain beautiful hair.
2. Quit Nicotine
Smoking is a poison, that fact is well documented and well understood by almost everybody. But there is this thing about smoking that other than shortening your life span, it makes living the ideal-life harder when it comes to the looks. If the skin disorders caused by the tar isn’t the reason enough, know this, smoking accelerates the greying of hair. So, to stay beautiful for a prolonged period of time, quit, right now!
3. Alcohol and Caffeine
Caffeine however, can be taken in moderation. It does more good for you than harm if you take two or three cups a day. But go beyond than that, and you will be inviting a lot of unwanted occurrences and one of them is the premature greying of hair. Alcohol on the other hand not only kills your liver cells, it messes in a bad way with the natural health of the hair. So be moderate or quit this addiction.
4. Junk food
Avoiding junk food is not only good for your physical health, but it also does wreak havoc on the hair growth. Try it, go all healthy when it comes to diet for about a month and observe the changes. Those extra calories you put on due to over consumption of fast food are other reason to say goodbye to McDonald’s and roadside fried snacks; you can have a cheat day every now and then though.
Are you drinking enough water? In these stressful times, literally nobody has the time to keep check on the body. What they actually like to drink is alcohol, which in turn is a bad dehydrating agent. So, you need to drink as much water as you can in order to make sure that your hair does get their share of some healthy hydration.
6. Kill Stress
Stress is one of the main roots for several physical and mental ailments. Getting rid of it will not only make you more productive on a daily basis but it can also do wonders for your health. Healthy hair just doesn’t want to stay healthy if the brain they live on is not.
7. Vitamin B
Taking the B group vitamins such as B6, B12 can bless you with a beautiful and strong head full of hair in no time. The sources for this particular group of vitamins are easily accessible. Green leafy vegetables, dairy and chicken are filthy rich sources of these vitamins. So, go ahead on the way to decades of healthy and naturally beautiful hair.
Greying hair will occur, no matter what. These tips are only going to slow down the process. But somehow, getting old gracefully is still possible. What’s in the colour right?
