The pigment cells positioned at the basis of each hair follicle are responsible for the color of your hair. As time goes by, these pigment cells start dying and their efficiency is being reduced. Once the body stops with the process of pigment production, the hair loses its color and turns white. Nevertheless, gray hair can be prevented, and you can achieve this by nourishing your scalp and thus protect the basis of the hair follicles. The healthier the basis and the pigment cells, the longer you will be able to maintain the natural color of your hair.
Many factors can contribute to the occurrence of gray hair, some of them being the following:
Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism
The use of electric dryers and concentrated hair dyes
Even though hair dyes are beneficial when it comes to covering and coloring the gray hair, they are loaded with chemical substances and thus damage your hair. This is why it is always best for you to use natural products only.
Fortunately, we have found out this homemade natural solution that will help you make your hair look great. You just need to combine two highly beneficial natural ingredients: lemon juice and coconut oil.
