What Causes Grey Hair?

A potential cure for grey hair has been much in the news lately, after researchers determined that it was hydrogen peroxide building up in our hair that causes it to turn grey. Oxidative stress causes hydrogen peroxide to build up in our hair follicles, slowly to build up within the hair itself and bleaching the melanin in each hair to grey from the inside. The research team reports that a new form of psuedocatalase, a drug used to treat vitiligo, shows promise as a reliable treatment to reverse greying hair.

Aging sees many of us accumulate gray hairs, but premature grey hair is a possibility as well. In this case, genetics may be at fault; however, stress and nutritional deficits may likewise be the cause of a growing grey hair problem. This matches up with the theory of oxidative stress and hydrogen peroxide, since stress and poor nutrition will increase our body's levels of oxidative stress.

Reverse Grey Hair Naturally

Antioxidant supplements as well as foods and herbs such as green tea or oregano leaf can reduce your body's oxidative stress, to potentially slow or cure grey hair. Mineral and other nutritional deficits can also be addressed, and for our readers blackstrap molasses has been the most reliable dietary aid to prevent grey hair.

Amla Berry   2  0   

Posted by Saf (Birmingham, UK) on 11/20/2006

[YEA]  Hi I'm writing about the posting pasted above. I've been researching into Amla powder. Amla is also known as the 'Indian Gooseberry' (Emblica offinalis) and has been used in India for hair for hundreds of years. It has a very high content of Vitamin C. I would say that it's more of a preventative measure than a cure for grey and falling hair.

Anjuli suggested Lemon and Coconut oil. If you wish to use these, you could definitely mix the Amla powder (available at Tesco supermarket in the UK as well as many asian/Indian grocery stores), into the oil mixture. Some of it will dissolve and there will be a grainy residue.

A lot of vegetable oils are very good for both the Skin and Hair. They are saturated with vitamins and nutrients. You can mix them together too and also use the purest essential oils. I find the following oils very good for the hair: Olive, Shea Butter, Mustard Seed, Coconut, Jojoba, Sweet Almond Oil and Thistle Oil.

Essential oils that you can mix into the blend of oils include Ginger, Rosemary, Lavender, Cedarwood, Benzoin, Sandalwood, Ylang Ylang. Only ever use the most purest essential oils.

If you add 5% Vitamin E Oil to the blend it will help keep it from going rancid for longer. Store the oil away in a cool place away from sunlight.

You can mix amla power into the oil when you dispense a little to use it.

Use the oil as an overnight conditioner by massaging well into the scalp and and hair. Wash it out in the morning. If you can't do this then massage it into the scalp and hair and leave it in for as long as you can even if it's only 15 minutes before a shower.

When it comes to washing out the oil. Massage shampoo into your hair first and add a tiny bit of water. If you wet hair first, it will be difficult to get the oil out.

A recipe for intensive oil treatment: 24.5ml Thistle Oil, 24.5ml Olive Oil, 3ml Vitamin E Oil, 0.5ml Vitamin A Palmitate, 50 drops of Rosemary Essential Oil, 30 Drops of Grapefruit Essential Oil and 20 drops of Ylang Ylang.

Or you can replace the above Essential Oils in the recipe by using the following instead: 15 drops of Ginger Essential Oil, 60 drops of Lavender Essential Oil and 15 drops of Cedarwood Essential Oil. Although the oils will improve the condition of your hair and stimulate the hair follicles and your scalp there is no guarantee that they will make new hair grow or get rid of gray hair. It may however help prevent an early onset of hair loss.

Hope this helps. Good luck and God Bless.

Souad, due to my hair loss I can't use the conventional hair dyes, however I found taking unsulphured blackstrap molasses 2 teaspoons twice a day for the last 3 weeks has turned all of my grey hair to dark black with reddish pigment. The copper in the molasses helps to change the hair colour. You can purchase it from the UK, Goodness Direct (by the way I don't get commission for mentioning the name of the company). You can also purchase Amla from the internet. Good Luck

It is possible to reverse early stage greying by regular use of a micronutrient rich oil for scalp massage such as egg oil twice a week, left on overnight. The Omega-3 fatty acids and anti-oxidant xanthophylls nourish the follicular cells.

[YEA]  The Indian gooseberry Amla is ground into a powder, once mixed with water and massaged into the scalp regularly will help keep hair from going grey. Amla powder is available at Indian specialty shops. Also a mix of coconut oil and lemon are beneficial.

Just a question about the amla powder. Do you use it after shampoo/cream rinse? And can it be mixed with the coconut/lemon suggestion you have down there also? And will it get rid of the grey you have already as new grows? Thanks and if this doesn't work, what other ones actually work? No one replies with any positive feedback?

[YEA]  500mg Ashwagandha with breaky and dinner 5-6 days a week, and I might add not for grey hair, was taken for about a year. Hubby was about 10% grey but not now - no grey. We did not notice it till about 6 months. Has not had any for 6 months and still no grey. He was also taking neem and tulsi for 3-4 weeks on and off and zinc. The zinc was taken only once or twice a week. This is the second time he has got rid of his grey hair without trying, The first time he was young to be going grey.

[SIDE EFFECTS]  Avoid Corn Syrup - Grey hair

Someone mentioned that copper is needed for your hair to keep its color, and if you do a search, you'll find that's true. Americans especially are severely depleted of copper. I read somewhere that corn syrup sucks the copper out of your body, and corn syrup is in MANY of our processed foods, so thats no surprise. Blackstrap molasses, as someone else said, is one of the best possible natural sources of copper, and is a good supplement for many other problems as well. I'm nearing 60 and have only a few grey hairs, that started appearing after I hadn't taken any blackstrap molasses for quite a few months. When I take the molasses, my hair color slowly comes back. I just add it as a sweetener to tea, or make a tea of ACV and BSM. Takes a little getting used to, but I definitely look and feel better when I take it regularly.

I dont think the Blackstrap Molasses works for grey hair - I used it twice after I read these testimonials and I have to say that I noticed 2 new grey hairs in my beard today - I never get any grey hairs in that part of my beard, but after I used the BSM I noticed more not less grey hairs.

My only explanation is that even if its unprocessed - its still has the same negative effects as sugar. if its copper that retains hair color then I will be seeking that in another non-sugar product to try it out - I'm not over 40 yet and have some grey hairs.

I used organic BSM unsulphered from Paraguay. I probably will try it for a few more days but if I continue to see more grey hairs I will stop and will post that ppl wanting to stave off grey hair not fall for the snake-oil sales pitch I see being posted so much.

Hi, I have another possible reason for grey/white hair. You MIGHT have a copper deficiency. Supplemental copper may help. My husband has served as the guinea pig for this experiment. He used to be teased a lot by family for his white-haired resemblance to wild and hairy Einstein photos. When I started reseaching causes of white hair, I found lack of copper in the diet is one. Then, I looked up foods high in copper, and discovered that my spouse didn't like ANY of them, and rarely ate any copper-containing foods. So, I got him a 2 mg. copper supplement, and he takes it daily. His hair is no longer white, but it is not that close to his natural color either yet, but it is getting there. I would estimate it to be about 70% grey yet, but it is improved enough to notice, his nape is quite a bit darker, his eyebrows are free of grey, his arm hair is darker than it was, and he told me just this morning that his chest hair is also starting to darken now. Supplemental copper is also apparently good for elasticity of the arteries to the heart---that makes you wonder if its lack might contribute to heart problems, but I haven't been able to find any indication of that online really. Still, we will take the bonus.

BSM definitely causes gray hair to grow dark. It happens after 2-3 weeks of taking BSM as your hair grow. It does not make hair getting darker! New darker color shows like roots on colored hair. When you stop taking BSM you will notice after couple of weeks more gray roots showing up again.

I was actually surprise that this remedy works so well. Regarding lack of copper: gray hair is just a symptom of it. I read that lack of copper is causing brain aneurysm and stroke in effect but do not ask your doctor if it is the truth.

Anyway gray hair doesn't mean you will get a stroke, you might be at higher risk of having one.

Helen, gray/white hair is caused by a copper deficiency. Copper deficiency according to Joel Wallace is related to heart disease and blockage (among other things) so keep doing what you are doing, not just for your hair benefits.

What brand Molasses do you eat. Mine is very high in iron (and iron is an antagonist of copper) so it didn't work.

While it is TRUE that hair goes white and grey due to mineral deficiency and mineral imbalance could be the cause. Also, if you take kelp and you are hyperthyroid you will SUFFER. Copper toxicity causes liver problems and thyroid problems.

A healthier appoach would be to take a full spectrum mineral with supporting vitamins since minerals are only part of the orchestra. My grey hairs are going away with supplements and I use very little copper or zinc.

If you use the supplement you bought; try 1 every other day so you don't get overload and cause a deficiency in your other minerals

A progesterone deficiency can also cause grey hair.

When I started getting grey hair I didn't care. Everyone in my family that I remember went grey, then white if they lived long enough. After reading this post I went to the mirror, looked and I don't have it anymore. I don't remember how long ago I started taking BSM every day but prior to that, when I had grey hair, I remember I was only taking magnesium powder and an occasional vit C. (I drank OJ everyday but when I consumed a little more cheese I took one or two of the 1000 mg C tabs for preventative reasons).

I am poor and cannot afford a variety of vitamins and/or supplements. These are available in our food. There is a problem with what has happened to our food so any added vitamins or supplements could cause an overload of something. According to a nutrition almanac BSM is a balance of nutrients in itself. Who knows how long that will be safe?

I started taking BSM because of the water soluble B Complex vitamins. Taking only one of the B vitamins for something specific can cause a deficiency in the others, contributing to major depression which I had years ago. I'm convinced that BSM must have given me what I needed to get rid of my grey hair even though it did not matter to me.

Does BSM increase blood sugar for diabetics?
Replied by Kt

07/14/2015

I think it could. This is what happened to me: I had been taking two and three TBSP of BSM a day, in addition to a little sugar in my coffee. I started to have what has been reported as diabetic nerve pain, I.e., lightning bolts shooting in my legs and feet. I reasoned why it could be happening and cut back on my sugar intake and BSM consumption to one TBSP of BSM in the morning and sometimes one before bed. I've not had anymore of that pain.

Even though my PCP said he had no problem with BSM, I think any additional sugar intake could make a difference. You just have to find the balance that will work for you.

At the same time you have to be aware of our fruits, vegetables, nuts and grains that have all been engineered to last longer. These genetically modified foods (GMO's) have permeated our entire food supply in one way or another. The way you eat them will also have an impact. In my opinion, I think that's why we are seeing such an epidemic of diabetes and kidney failure.

Hi Sasi (Melbourne) ---

Blackstrap molasses as a food in my opinion, is far too valuable to discard in favour of "health".

I have it almost daily and when forgetting, seem to feel it is needed. When I was diagnosed with sugar imbalance, I fell into a deep hole by believing I needed their medication. Through study on EC here I learned that it would kill me and possibly not the disease. More info on this, and confirmation, through GreenMedInfo online.

Blackstrap molasses is harvested usually by very poor workers in Asia who, as they harvest it, have little food and live by starvation but BMS keeps them free of disease and cancer.

To keep BMS out of the diet when it provides the so much needed minerals and nutrients, makes no sense.

Allopathic med provides no education on nutrition and is unable to advise people on their nutritional needs other than their policies which have caused waves of disease all over the world. Look alone at salt, refined, and caused so much heart disease.

My relationship in that early time of bs inbalance, has altered my relationship with food in a very negative way. But I learned through research I can rely on myself by finding a way back to health. That is a matter of personal choice. People smoke but are afraid to discard a medicine that will dry the blood till there is a heart attack described as "due to diabetes complications".

So I take that nutritious food that has also freed me of arthritis. Too much money and politics ruin everything.

Namaste, Om

HI U FOLKS, , , , , , , , wrote on this subject many years ago. BSM contains iron which is a two edged sword. It cut both ways. You don't need iron if you don't need iron, but I was going to shoot a bear in the fanny. As a diabetic, my glucose when out the roof and scared my mule. I still have a jar in the cabinet that is many years old.

For a diabetic to worry about grey hair is beyond belief. Worry about having two good legs to walk on. It's a sheet + 2 =8 thing.

Blackstrap Molasses   21  13   

Posted by Jeanne (San Diego, Ca) on 04/22/2015

[YEA]  Blackstrap molasses really fixes gray hair! This is what I've been doing:

I use Plantation Blackstrap Unsulphured Molasses. You want a molasses with the nutrients in it. Some molasses is just for baked items and the iron and other nutrients are stripped from it. Just look at the label.

I take 2-3 tbs 3 times a day. Just wash it down with milk or coconut milk or something.

I saw results in 24-48 hours. I'm a brunette, and those short gray kinky hairs around my face softened and straightened out and turned light brown. After three days, those hairs darkened a little more and really blended nicely with the rest of my hair.

I stopped taking molasses for three days and on the third day, the gray gradually began to come back.

I think you have to take this every day to keep the gray away.

It is hard to give you an answer, but authentic molasses will have a "medicinal" smell, that is, will smell like a medicine, at least in my impression. It is also very thick, and when kept into a refrigerator, it takes about 20-30 seconds for it to descend to pour it on a spoon.

Folks, stop and think about it. We all react differently to taking the same supplements or food. Our bodies processes are unique to each one of us. We don't use things the same way. That is why when you try something for Grey Hair, what works for one person will not work for the next. To try a cure for something, you should give it a fair amount of time to work, say 3 to 6 months. If it does not work, move on to another cure, after all they are all natural and not overly expensive. Good luck finding what works for you. Don't stop until you succeed.

Some people have had success taking liquid chlorophyll.

If you are allergic to dye, I would recommend using henna and indigo, in pure herbal form, to dye your hair. It's 100% natural - from a plant - no chemicals. It's also permanent and provides excellent coverage for gray and white hair. If you want a nice dark reddish brown, you can mix henna and indigo together. Or if you want to dye it black, you first dye it with the henna, wash, and then dye it with the indigo. Go to mehandi.com for all the instructions and to buy it. Be careful of other suppliers who add chemicals to their "henna."
