While there is no way to stop hair from greying as you age, there are ways to slow down the greying process and cover up grey hairs once they appear. By using both natural remedies and hair dyes, you can keep your hair its natural colour for much longer. Specially formulated dyes and treatments work with your body to conceal or slow down the process of grey hair.

  1. 1

    Take vitamin and dietary supplements such as iron and vitamin B, and eat foods high in copper, like sunflower seeds, almonds and crab. Maintaining a healthy diet keeps hair looking younger longer.

  2. 2

    See a stylist about managing grey hair once it begins appearing. Specific treatments are available for greying hair; a full dye may not be necessary, which will help cut down on the amount of chemicals in your hair.

  3. 3

    Maintain a healthy diet. Smoking, excessive caffeine and alcohol, and spicy, acidic and greasy foods all have been linked to prematurely grey hair. Eat a balanced diet that will promote overall health and your hair could go grey later.

Tips and warnings

  • Talk to your doctor or physician before taking any dietary supplements or adding vitamins to your daily regimen; some forms of supplements can react with prescription medications or cause allergic reactions.
