Home remedies to reverse the graying of hair benefit not only the locks themselves but the body in general. Simply nutritional supplements like blackstrap molasses and B vitamins are two remedies often found useful for helping the hair to return to its original color. These remedies are known to benefit many other health conditions as well!
Blackstrap molasses is the end result of processing cane sugar. Many nutrients from the plant are concentrated in this molasses. Copper, iron and magnesium are among them. Copper deficiency in particular has been linked to premature graying of the hair.1 Using blackstrap molasses on a regular basis is like taking a vitamin supplement but blackstrap may be better assimilated by the body than some supplements.
Blackstrap molasses can be added to a daily cup of coffee or milk. It can be used as a sweetener for oatmeal. For simplicity sake, some just take their daily dose right off the spoon!
A B complex vitamin provides a concentration of B vitamins to the body. These seem to be especially helpful for individuals under stress, which has historically been blamed for gray hair. B vitamins are sometimes the key to reversing grey hair.2
A chlorophyll supplement may help to restore hair to its original color. Chlorophyll supplements do contain copper. Many find this supplement helps with energy, anemia, and body odor. If premature graying of the hair is accompanied by low energy, anemia or body odor, this would be a good supplement to consider.
A correlation between smoking and premature graying of the hair has been found.3 Quitting smoking will often take years off the appearance, not only in reversing the gray but in reducing skin wrinkles and color as well.
Improving food quality often reverses many health concerns. Reducing processed foods and increasing superfoods with plenty of nutrition can restore balance to the body. Many health concerns are caused by nutritional deficiencies. Juicing is another way to get more nutrients out of food.
