The natural colour of hair is due to the cells in the hair follicles known as melanocytes which generate a pigment which gives colour to the hair. When melanocytes stop producing these pigments, due to increasing age,decreased nourishment,protein deficiency etc your hair starts to lose its natural colour which leads to graying of hair.
Though one cannot prevent the natural cycle of whitening of hair, but you can always prevent your hair from premature graying. Home remedies are very helpful in curing premature graying of hair effectively. These are some home remdies for treating premature graying of hair naturally.
