Does gray or thinning hair have you feeling old before your time? Do you want to know why you’re turning gray, and how to regain your natural hair color?

Today I will brief you on the very best information and supplements available, and provide you with the tools you need to turn back the clock.

How Does Gray Hair Start?

Tiny hair pigment cells within our hair follicles called melanocytes produce our hair color. When the pigment cells stop producing their pigment, new hairs grow in without their natural color. So, first your hair will look a little drab, and then gradually become grey, then white.

The University of California at Berkeley published a study demonstrating how hydrogen peroxide gradually washes out the oil cells next to the hair follicle. (1) When your oil cells get washed out, the pigment cells can’t do their job to create your natural hair color.

6 Steps to Healthier Hair

Below is a review of the steps you can take today to stop grey hair growth.

1. Avoid Refined Sugar

We spoke earlier about how the buildup of hydrogen peroxide affects your hair follicles. Unfortunately, chances are that even if you’ve been living a ‘clean’ lifestyle this buildup is not just happening on your scalp, it’s happening throughout your body. (2)

Since a hydrogen peroxide buildup depletes necessary oils on your scalp, can you imagine ways it might be depleting your entire body? It could eventually create a terrain – or landscape – that begins to favor disease over health.

When our system is overrun by refined sugars, systemic infections are prone to occur from candida overgrowth in the gut. Bacterial overgrowth compromises the immune system. (3)

A compromised immune system wreaks havoc on your body, including putting stress on your Thyroid. This, in turn, increases your likelihood of infection. Are you seeing a process here, a chain reaction?

One way you can optimize your system is with a natural antibacterial defense such as Oregano Leaf. This will counteract the process, provided you also cut back on refined sugar.

2. Get Plenty of Sleep

The Mayo Clinic says that a lack of sleep can make you sick, and suggests 7 to 8 hours of sleep for adults and a minimum of 10 hours of sleep for school aged children. (4) If you’re in a healing mode — as you will be once you begin to change your lifestyle — we suggest even more.

Great, you say, if you could only sleep! Ah, changing habits is hard, isn’t it? You might first think about your diet, and how much refined sugar or other stimulants you’re consuming.

A great first step towards changing your habits would be to take heed of all of the news today about shutting off your devices at least two hours before bedtime, and allowing yourself the time to wind down.

In fact, a 2017 study by the Stanford Center for Longevity, which called sleep the Fountain of Youth, recommended that adults refrain from all forms of stimulation two hours before sleep. (5)

Training yourself to resist the phone, computer, or other mental or physical activity for two hours might take a lot of self-discipline, but it will be easier if you can remember why you’re making these changes.

Once you give your body the sleep it craves, it will have the energy it needs to reverse gray hair. Incentive enough?

Aim for 8-10 hours of sleep per night.

3. Ban Processed Foods from Your Diet

You probably won’t be surprised to hear that unhealthy foods and other things you put in your body play a big part here. The main culprits are refined sugars, processed food, bleached white flours, overuse of alcohol, and/or consistent smoking habits.

Oh, processed foods can be tempting! Quick and easy they may be, but the artificial colors and sweeteners in processed foods do not benefit your health. Soft drinks and foods containing Monosodium Glutamate (think chips, sausages, and soups) do not reverse gray hair or help you develop a healthy mane because they lack the nutrients your body needs.

Want some new results? Try some new foods. Fermented foods, for example, are a proven solution to reverse graying. Incorporating foods such as Kefir, Kombucha, Sauerkraut, Pickles, Miso, Tempeh, Natto, Kimchi, Raw Cheese, and Yogurt will fill your gut with good bacteria and help your body get back on track.

Reading the labels is a smart way to know what you are putting in your body.

4. Find a Way to Quit Smoking

A 2013 study  showed a significant correlation between smoking and gray hair before the age of 30. (6) If you’re a smoker, you’ve probably also read compelling evidence that smoking is an assault on your body.

But, as we all know, smoking is highly addictive, so don’t despair if you haven’t been able to quit yet. Keep learning about different methods people have successfully used to quit — and if you can’t find one that works for you, consider putting together your own approach.

Whatever you do, don’t beat yourself up about it, treat it as a serious addiction, and look for a serious solution that works for you.

It is always a good idea to quit smoking.

5. Reduce the Stress

 According to Sandra Gilman, Trichologist and Director for Education at The Elan Center for Trichology “If the person is predisposed to gray hair, stress will make it appear sooner.” Stress can definitely reveal itself in your hair, and gray or white hair caused by stress is reversible.

Lifestyle stressors include a number of factors that can change the pigmentation of hair. Scientists have divided them into intrinsic (internal) and extrinsic (external) factors:

Intrinsic factors:

●     Genetic defects

●     Hormones

●     Body distribution

●     Age

Extrinsic factors:

●     Climate

●     Pollutants

●     Toxins

●     Chemical exposure

So we’re not saying that lifestyle is the only culprit, but let’s face it:

Now that your body has gotten your attention with the gray, let’s take a look at what you can do for it before it ramps up the noise.

Of course, reducing the level of stress in your life is not an easy task. But dealing with excessive stress has become a key focus today. Many people agree that they need to find more relaxation and calmness in their life.

There are many ways to reduce the stress. You can weed out personal habits that ramp up the stress, or start some new, healthy habits such as meditation, walking, spending time in nature, visiting with friends, or a hobby. Just find something you enjoy, and begin.

6. Cut Out the Dye

Another lifestyle choice we suggest you make is to stay away from dying your hair. Most hair dyes are loaded with very harmful chemicals that will eventually impact your health in ways that make gray hair seem desirable by comparison.

So what’s the Problem with Gray Hair?

Let’s face it, gray hair doesn’t make most of us look as dapper as it does George Clooney. In fact, it can make us look a little drab. So if you want to restore your natural hair color, we have some solid truth to offer. Simple truth. Truth that may not surprise you:

Premature graying = Your Body’s Cry for Help

 May we put it more bluntly?

Premature Graying = Premature Aging

 As hard to swallow as that truth may be, it is indeed the truth. So now it’s time for the good and the bad news:

The bad news is that if you don’t begin to make some changes, grey hair might be the most comfortable cry that your body gives you.

But wait, there really is good news! If you eat right, exercise, and take quality supplements you can regain and maintain a healthy looking appearance.

Think of it like this: just making first efforts on reversing your grey hair can be a major step forward towards real health.

Cutting out dangerous chemicals is a healthy decision for your health.
