You might be familiar with the fact that the hydrogen responsible for brunettes’ golden hair is at the same time the main cause for premature hair graying. Scientists from Bradford University were the first ones to discover the guilt of the hydrogen-peroxide.
The body creates hydrogen peroxide in small doses during metabolic processes. Young people’s organism can decompose this substance, while at older people the process is more difficult and slowed down. Hydrogen attacks the tyrosine kinase enzyme because of that, which creates the melanin in the body.
Human hair becomes gray, as a consequence of that. The scientists believe that in the future they will be successful in finding a cure that will control the level of the hydrogen, so its decomposition would go on in old age without problems.
Scientists from Manchester University,on the other hand, succeed creating in laboratory molecule K (D) PT, which is responsible for the natural hair color. This artificially created molecule succeeded in partially recovering the hair color; 6 gray haired women aged 46-65 took part in the experiment and their melanin increased.
The results from this experiment are a huge success, because the hopes of the people, whose hair grayed quickly increases.
Although there are several factors, like the inheritable one, that influence the speed of graying, nevertheless there are some natural methods which can stop or at least delay the graying, or even recover the natural hair color. Important fact here is that the diet has an important role in this.
Efficient solutions for the recovery of the natural hair color
1. Consume 300-400 micrograms of folic acid everyday. It contains para-aminobenzoic acid (PABA) which stops the gray hair,stimulates melaninand even returns the pigment to the already grayed hair.
2. Minerals likezinc calcium andcopper can delay the appearance of gray hair because they control the biotin. Chlorella and algae spirulina are the best sources of these minerals.
3. Make a strong extract of 500ml water and 100g sage which you will apply on your head for a temporary recovery of the natural color.
4. In order to get rid of the dandruff, you canmake a mixture of lemon juice and salt and clean your scalp with this mixture. According to some studies, the dandruff speeds the graying process.
5. In a bowl put some chamomile and some hot water to get the polish. Add a tablespoon of wine vinegar and mix everything again. Apply it on your hair. Wash it after 20 minutes.
6. Mix coconut oil with curry and heat it. Massage the root of the hair with the cool mixture.
7. In a cup of black tea add a spoon of salt, and then put it on your head. Leave it on for 30 minutes, then wash the hair.
