View Full Version : Help for premature grey hair?
12-22-2006, 07:54 PM
It's been months since i posted on here.My mom died earlier in the year from cancer,and several months ago I noticed that I"m getting several strands of grey hair,but I"m not even 30 yet.Premature grey doesn't run in my family so I'm thinking it could be from stress. Does the raw food diet reverse premature grey?I've read a few things here and there;Victoria Boutenko mentioned a reversal of grey hair after downing green smoothies. Are there any particular foods or supplements that would be helpful?

Well I don't-it's not for me-not while I'm young anyway.

I once saw grey hair on a 6 year old, no kidding.
I bet eating SAD had something to do with it.

My son was born with a couple of grey hairs. I am not young and I found it interesting that my co-worker and I agree today that we can't wait until we get more gray hair. We think it will look good on us. . . plus we've earned them. I was joking that I need the frost for some of our other co-workers. Generally I believe that most people look best with the color that they are given although enhancement can be wonderful and there are those who can wear any color they like and look great.
I have heard that some do turn grey overnight from stress and also that tests have been done of people who died of a broken heart and that the heart was actually split.
If raw can shrink tumors I am sure it can reverse gray hair although I have read on here that some people get a different hair color from being raw. . . . usually lighter.

I had my first gray hair at age 17. Only had that one for years. I'm 47 now and have a few more. Not a lot though considering how many some people have at my age. My hair is light enough that they blend in rather well although in my family the gray ones tend to "curl up and die". In other words they get a thicker, coarser, kinkier texture to them so that makes them more obvious. I get dye at the health food store and I mix up a small amount at a time, mainly covering any roots that might be showing or any gray that is showing through. Then I add a few streaks to blend it all in. I use a color much like my natural color (but slightly lighter) so it is not at all obvious. I've even had hair stylists ask me if it is my natural color. Apparently they can't tell.
Sage tea is purported to reverse graying. I've never tried it though. Apply it to the hair. Don't drink it.

I haven't noticed my gray going away, but I just turned 43, so it's normal for me. I've been taken for much younger, though.
Thanks lifeAgift for reminding me to take the henna out of the freezer ;) I've been too busy with work and church to henna for the past few weeks, but with the long weekend I have time now.
Gorillas in the wild get gray hair (they're called silverbacks), so don't expect that eating naturally will prevent it.

I have heard that eating raw will change premature gray hair, but not if you're genetically prone to it. Brian Clements from Hippocrates has greatly reduced his gray hair and my Dad, when he was eating raw, his hair definitely got darker. Mine is from stress. I have noticed it has gotten less wirey(sp?). But also noticed the curl has somewhat gone away. Maybe just heavy toxins being released through the hair. Just going through whatever process my body needs to do. Loving the raw life :cool:
