Grey hair is a common problem that many faces, especially as they age. But did you know that Ayurveda, a traditional Indian medicine, can help you stop grey hair? Ayurveda is an ancient practice that is gaining popularity in the west due to its holistic approach to health and wellness.

Ayurveda treatments focus on the individual's mind, body and spirit and aim to bring balance, prevent disease, and promote overall well-being. With this in mind, Ayurveda has a variety of natural remedies that can help stop grey hair and keep it looking youthful and vibrant.

Ayurveda can offer a comprehensive approach to preventing grey hair, including lifestyle and dietary changes and herbal remedies. So if you're looking for an effective and natural way to stop grey hair, consider trying some of the below well-known grey hair treatment in ayurveda.

What Is Ayurveda?

Ayurveda is an ancient practice that uses natural remedies, yoga, herbs, and oils to promote health and wellness. While western medicine focuses on treating disease, Ayurveda aims to stem the disease from occurring in the first place by promoting overall well-being and bringing balance to the body by addressing the mind, body, and spirit.

It encourages daily routines and practices that support a balanced lifestyle, resulting in better health, less stress, and a more positive outlook. Ayurveda has been practiced for centuries in India and Southeast Asia. It is derived from the Sanskrit word "Ayur," meaning life, and "Veda," which translates to knowledge. In its entirety, it is known as "ancient knowledge of life" or "science of longevity."

Benefits Of Ayurvedic Remedies For Grey Hair

Ayurvedic remedies for grey hair have many benefits, including being natural, non-invasive, and having no side effects.

Using Ayurvedic medicine for grey hair treatment will not only control greying of hair; it will also promote healthy hair growth, restore the hair's natural pigmentation, reduce hair loss, prevent breakage, and nourish the hair & scalp.

Ayurvedic remedies for grey hair are loaded with antioxidants that can help fade away grey hair and strengthen the follicles—restoring the natural lustre and vibrant hair color.

Ayurvedic Diet And Lifestyle Changes For Grey Hair

The first step in Ayurvedic remedies for grey hair is a healthy diet and lifestyle. Eating foods that boost hair growth and prevent grey hair is the most effective way to stop grey hair. A diet rich in iron, protein, vitamins, and minerals will support healthy hair and prevent grey hair. Iron plays a vital role in promoting hair growth. It also helps promote natural hair color.

Ayurvedic diet and lifestyle changes for grey hair include consuming foods rich in iron, such as spinach, broccoli, whole grains, dried fruits, and soybeans. For those trying to stop grey hair, consuming vitamin B from food sources can significantly boost healthy hair and prevent grey tresses. Other vitamins that can promote healthy hair include Vitamin C, E, A, and Vitamin K.

Minerals that can promote healthy hair include zinc, calcium, magnesium, and iron. Ayurvedic remedies for grey hair also recommend incorporating regular exercise, meditation, and stress-relieving activities into one's daily routine. These practices are known to promote general well-being, and increase hair growth, and hair thickness.

Ayurvedic Herbs For Grey Hair

Ayurvedic herbs can be used in various ways, including a hair mask and oil. 

Shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb that promotes healthy hair and prevents grey hair. It can be used in a hair mask or as an Ayurvedic oil. It is recommended that you mix Shatavari with coconut oil for use as a hair oil.

Bhringaraj is another Ayurvedic herb that promotes healthy hair and prevents grey hair. Mix it with other moisturizing oil like an olive to make it an effective hair oil.

Ayurvedic Home Remedies For Grey Hair

Include the consumption of certain foods and herbs. Biotin is a vitamin one can take as a dietary supplement for healthy hair and to prevent grey hair. Vitamin E and Folic Acid are also recommended for healthy hair and to prevent grey hair. While these vitamins can be taken orally, the best way to ingest them is through topical application. 

Vitamin E and Folic Acid can be applied to the hair and scalp as hair oil. Biotin can be used as a hair mask to promote healthy hair. Before you consider taking any of these supplements, please consult your doctor.

 

Ayurvedic Remedies For Grey Hair

Ayurvedic remedies for grey hair include the following:

Shatavari

Shatavari is an Ayurvedic herb that can help boost blood circulation and improve the health of your follicles. It is widely known to prevent premature greying. Add it to your hair mask or use it as an oil massager.

Bhringaraj 

Bhringaraj is a herb commonly used in Ayurvedic medicine for grey hair and various health conditions, including hair loss, dandruff, and skin disorders. It slows down the greying process and protects the hair's natural color.

 Aloe Vera

Aloe vera can help moisturize your weak and damaged grey hair follicles and nurture them back to life. Mix it with olive oil or apply it topically as a gel.

Takeaway

As you age, your hair follicles get weaker and produce less color. Reduction in melanin and pigmentation results in white or greying of hair.

If you prefer coloring your hair, you have many options. However, if you decide to go the ayurvedic way, remember to follow a strict regime consistently. Since the efficacy of these methods has not been clinically investigated, one might be prone to allergic reactions.

You can take a hair test at Traya Health for a more holistic approach. Our experts can help you identify the roots of your concerns through your inputs and provide a personalized diagnosis backed by science and years of experience. We also offer a hair health coach for you to stay consistent.

FAQs

Q1 - Can Ayurveda Cure White Hair?

Ans - There are a variety of Ayurvedic remedies that can help reduce white hair including the ones listed above. While these remedies can reduce white hair, they may not turn it black. If you want to turn your white hair black, try some of the below Ayurvedic options to promote faster hair growth and stronger hair.

- Amla Juice
- Honey and Turmeric
- Coconut Oil Massage
 - Yogi Tea

Q2 - How Can I Permanently Cure Grey Hair?

Ans - You cannot. However, you can slow down the greying process by trying a combination of ayurvedic remedies, lifestyle changes along with proper diet & nutrition. However, one solution cannot work for all.

If you are concerned about your grey hair, take a hair test at Traya Health, and our experts can help you identify the cause and provide a solution.

Q3 - Can Grey Hair Turn Black Again Naturally?

While there is no proven theory, ayurvedic remedies are known to reverse grey hair and improve scalp health to some extent. You can give one of the below remedies a try:

- Mix 1 tbsp of turmeric powder with 1 tbsp of lemon juice. Mix the two ingredients to create a paste, and apply it to your hair. Keep the mixture on your hair for at least 30 minutes, then wash it out. 

- Mix 1 tbsp of cinnamon powder with 1 tbsp of honey. Mix the two ingredients to create a paste, and apply it to your hair. Wash it out after 30 mins of application. 

- Mix 5 drops of orange oil with 2 tbsp of coconut oil. Mix the two ingredients to create a paste, and apply it to your hair. 

Keep the mixture for 20 to 30 minutes before washing it out.

Be patient and consistent with these home remedies.

Q4 - Can Ayurveda Reverse Grey Hair?

Ans - No scientific evidence suggests that Ayurveda, or any other traditional medicine system, can reverse grey hair. Grey hair is a natural part of the ageing process and is caused by the loss of pigmentation and melanin in the hair follicle. Once the hair follicle stops producing pigment, the hair that grows from it will be grey. 

However, some people may try using Ayurvedic medicine for premature grey hair or other natural remedies to improve their hair's overall health and possibly slow the greying process. If you are worried about the appearance of grey hair, take a hair test at Traya Health. We can help you identify the reasons behind your grey hair and can also provide effective science-based solutions to your diagnosis.
