Cool and strain this oil, and use it as a hair tonic to retard premature graying of hair. In addition, include curry leaves in your diet and drink Indian gooseberry juice. Curry leaves are particularly rich in B vitamins that help restore your natural hair color.
  • Like curry leaves, pieces of ridge gourd (torai) can also be cooked in coconut oil and the resulting solution can be used as an effective hair oil to cure this problem. Plus, it helps maintain healthy and shiny hair. Moreover, coconut oil can be combined with lemon juice to reduce premature gray hair and heal dandruff.
  • It is believed that regular intake of a teaspoon of grated ginger soaked in honey works as a useful home remedy to eliminate the problem of premature gray hair.
