Let’s face it, no one looks as charming as Jim Sarbh or Milind Soman with grey hair. Everyone freaks out when they see a few strands of grey hair for the first time on their head, no matter what the age.
People often associate greying hair with age. So, naturally, for most men and women in their twenties, spotting a bit of grey hair on their heads makes their world come crashing down on them.
Now, it is absolutely normal for anybody to have one or two strands of grey hair. However, if you spot a bunch of them, chances are that there’s something wrong.
If you are one of the many people who have fallen victim to this modern-day vice, read on to find out how do you stop premature ageing:
1. Eat Right
You’ve got to have a balanced diet, preferably one that has some key nutrients in abundance. Vitamins B12 and C are key for great scalp health and really goes a long way to stop premature greying.
2. Sleep well
No matter what you do, you simply cannot avoid living a stressful lifestyle. The only alternative that remains is to get proper rest. We suggest following a set sleeping pattern, one that has at least 6-7 hours of sleep.
If you get the time to hit the gym regularly, kudos to your dedication and time management skills. However, since it is nearly impossible for the rest of us to do so, it is ideal if you workout anywhere and anytime you get a chance.
Try taking the stairs instead of the escalator. Or walk instead of taking a rickshaw for a short distance to the nearby market.
4. Quit Smoking
Nearly all your health problems can be linked to this one. We know how hard can it be to really kick the butt, but trust us when we say this, that it is completely worth it. Smoking causes some really drastic hormonal changes that are really detrimental for your hair. Apart from greying hair, it can also cause dry and itchy scalp, or worse, premature hair fall.
5. Oil Your Hair
We all love a good oil massage, especially when our mom used to do it for us with all that zeal and passion. Unfortunately, most of us don’t have that luxury anymore, thanks to our hectic schedules and super busy lifestyles. So, it helps if you think of massaging your hair more as a necessity than an option. And let’s not forget, how relaxing and rejuvenating a good hair massage feels like.
6. Avoid Harsh Hair Products
You really need to be cautious when you are choosing a shampoo. Not only there are chances that your current shampoo, as well as conditioner, does not actually suit you, they may be really harsh for your scalp and hair. Try sampling a few options before finally settling for one. Or, consult a dermatologist to find out what works for you.
