My life bring up more challenging situations while the grey hair started to be clalr at age of 23, It does affect your appearence especially dealing with women. I did try color a few times, but I didnt feel good about cheating on my reality. I end up accepting myself as I look. It turns that people look at your confidence on yourself while you are turning gray, and find you interesting. But there is old school that is ashamed of the gray especially people from oriental background. They do not find you attractive with it at all. But who cares!

I am 60 and fighting grey. Grey hair has been reported to be caused by free oxygen radicals destroying melanin in the hair. So taking antioxidants is a great help at keeping grey at bay. A good source is vitamin C. I drink orange juice on a regular basis and believe me it helps. I have a picture of one of my grey hairs I have pulled out with a dark root, so it is reversible, and always when I stop drinking orange juice the grey increases.

Actually grey hair caused by lack of vitamins or certain problems with thyroid or pituitary glands is reversible.

When your hair is grey it cannot turn to normal again so i wonder how at the age of 17 there were no gray hair

Vitamins in diet, or lack of vitamins in diet?

Thanks for that! My Grandma had a skunk strip by the time she was 25, so did my mom and my older sister. I'm 23 now and I already have a couple dozen showing up. Genetics!

Calm yourself! It isn't really a stupid claim! If your granny turned grey young, and her mother and your mother did also, chances are that you probably will too! Genetics! Idiot!

Premature grey hair can be prevented by egg Oil. Massage your scalp twice a week with egg oil (eyova) and leave it on overnight. Egg oil contains anti-oxidant xanthophylls like lutein and zeaxanthin which arrest premature aging (graying) of hair and even reverses early stage grey hair.

Some sources say melanocytes eventually stop producing melanin, the substance that gives the hair its black colour. As you age this happens. Also, they say that premature graying may be caused by Thyroid problems or hormonal problems. They recommend eating foods containing Vitamin B12, iron, copper and iodine. This can help prevent premature graying.

You must have scientific test done to back this stupid claim you just made!!

I started getting grey hair when I was 15. Then at 17-18, the grey hair was gone! It was due to vitamins in diet and usage of harsh shampoo. Now I am 32 and I only have 5 to 6 grey hair... Most people at my age have way more grey hair than me.

Also.. Running a lot depletes our magnesium stores and this can lead to premature greying.. My greys really kicked in when I trained for a marathon and I didn't read that particular advice until it was too late.. now I make sure I take a magnesium supplement if I am doing lots of training/exercising. On top of eating as healthy as I can etc.

My hair is still predominately brown, I celebrate my 75th birthday next week. Honey is the answer, I have it daily on my breakfast cereal and have for decades. My younger brothers are both grey. The other factor is being born in the 1930's after all look at Joan Collins

Perhaps with the exception of smoking and stress that might cause you to go grey a little earlier, there is no proven link between eating a good diet and going grey later. It's genetically determined. Be very careful with Chinese herbal remedies - they can make you seriously ill. If you are that concerned, visit a hair salon and ask if they can make up a dye to match your natural hair colour.

Some interesting tips not so sure about the high protein etc. especially with dangers of vLDL and hypertetension but if all else fails then shave it off and go commando (on top!)

How do I go grey naturally, that is the Question.... I have been researching just about every website and all I can find y is the explanation of going grey, thanks that I know...but how do I get my body to lower my melanin produce and also how the heck to I let my body start producing natural hydrogen pyroxide. I've been born and blessed with pitch black hair, tried coloring it once but came out greenish (this was done at a professional hair salon). Help please, I want to be grey
