5 Natural Remedies to prevent premature Grey hairs - Aish

Splendid Pri! Volunteering ourselves in such wonderful platforms does give us satisfaction and appreciation to both our heart and soul. Thanks for making me involve in such voluntary paths. 

Going to our hometown is not just to feel the nostalgic memories but also to receive the reminiscence from our grandparents. While reviving our childhood memories, we get to learn more about the lifestyles still followed by our grandparents. One such lifestyle that never cease to impress us is the essence of hair. Without any chemical shampoos, artificial colors, straighteners or curls, there are still people around us living with natural remedies. 

How many of us feel that in this fast-moving world with stress and anxiety, we are losing our hair with hair fall, shades of grey, dandruff and other irritations in a very young age? 

When we touch 30, we feel that we are growing old, not mainly by the changes in our face but by the slow buds of white lines on our hair. Nowadays young minds with lots of pressure and stress commence using hair dyes, colors and other means to cease the white lines. Many thinks to act fast due to time factor, young age and fast pace, but are slow to understand that such hasty actions always have effects. To avoid the plenty of side effects from such chemical and artificial colors, why not we try simple, quick and homemade natural methods to not only sustain our hair color but to give the required nutrition and strength to our scalp and hair.

5 Natural Homemade remedies to prevent premature grey hairs 

1. Basil leaves + Curry Leaves + Coconut Oil + Fenugreek seeds 

  • Take 8 to 10 Basil (Tulsi in Indian languages) along with a bunch of Curry leaves and a half teaspoon of fenugreek seeds.
  • Blend the ingredients into a paste and keep aside.
  • Heat the coconut oil and add the paste to it. 
  • Place it aside to cool down. 
  • Take a strainer and extract the oil separately from the solids. 
  • Pour the oil in a bottle and use it every day, while, rinse your hair with the solids and Shikakai (Acacia Concinna), which is rightly available in any Ayurveda stores to sustain the color.


The medicinal extracts in Basil help in preventing the scalp infection while the Vitamins and essential calcium in Curry leaves enliven the hair. 

Fenugreek seeds acts as an emulsifier, making it useful as a stabilizer as well as thickening agent while the natural antioxidants and nutrients found in coconut oil boost hair growth and regrowth.

2. Triphala Churna + Oil 

  • Heat 2 teaspoons of Almond Oil / Coconut Oil.
  • Add a teaspoon of Triphala powder to it and stir well.
  • Allow the oil to cool, then apply it on hair and wash it well with Shikakai (Acacia Concinna), which is rightly available in any Ayurveda stores.


Triphala is the herbal blend of the three different fruits (Emblica Officinalis the biological name for Gooseberry, Terminalia Bellirica known as Bibhitaki and Terminalia Chebula known for Haritaki). These powerful ingredients have anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties that help in preventing premature grey hairs.

All these fruits are rightly available in any ayurvedic stores or we get the blended powder in the name of Triphala Churna.

The fatty acids and the Vitamins in the Almond oil nourishes the scalp and treats hair damages.

4. Tea decoction + Black Sesame seeds

  • Blend the black sesame seeds and add it with the tea decoction.
  • Apply it well on the scalp and leave it for 1 to 2 hours, then rinse the hair well without any shampoo.


Tea decoction is made by adding 2 teaspoons of tea powder to the boiling water. This acts as keratin boost and it gives the melanin which restores the natural pigment of the hair. 
Black sesame seeds is the rich source of protein and Omega 6 fatty acids that help in preventing the white lines of hair.

5. Castor Oil + Coconut Oil

  • Mix Castor oil and Coconut oil in a bowl and apply it on the hair for about an hour or two.
  • Then Rinse well with Shikakai (Acacia Concinna), which is rightly available in any Ayurveda stores.


The Omega 3 fatty acids in the castor oil prevent the gray hair and helps the scalp to boost circulation of blood.
