Getting gray hair is inevitable and while it might seem like something that’s very far off from now, there are steps you can take to prevent it from happening right now. You’ll thank your self for it in the long run.
1. Change your diet

Foods that are rich in copper, folate, and B-12 can keep the pigments in your hair that keep them colored going longer, and faster. These foods include but aren’t limited to seafood, kale, mushrooms, nuts, and avocados. These foods are good for your regardless of your hair so it’s good to have them in your diet overall.
2. Highlight don’t dye
When you see a gray hair it can be tempting to dye your entire head of hair but this is one of the biggest mistakes you can make. Dying your hair increases the odds of getting more grey hairs as dyes make your hair very weak and mess with the natural pigments of your hair. It’s best to highlight the areas of your hair that are grey instead of your whole head.
3. Don’t be afraid to tweeze
You’ve probably heard the old adage that pulling out one grey hair will cause three to grow back in it’s place but this is far from true. Pulling out a grey hair is one of the easiest ways to get rid of the problem. It won’t cause your grey hairs to multiply and it’s an easy solution for those who are looking to deal with 1 or 2 strands of grey hair.
4. Hot oil massage
Massaging your scalp with a warm oil like olive oil or coconut oil will really help with keeping the blood flowing to your head. Circulation is very important in preventing grey hair. The oil will also stimulate and hydrate your scalp which is also important for preventing grey hair.
