You can try using natural ingredients as an effective alternative solution to reduce gray hair.

  11 Februari 2024 06:00 - When talking about aging, people usually think of the signs that appear on the face. Conditions such as the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and sagging skin are signs that many people avoid. In fact, signs of aging that interfere with appearance do not only appear on the face, but also on the hair.

Signs of aging that appear in the hair are marked by the growth of gray hair . Gray hair or white hair appears when the hair loses the melanin pigment in its follicles. This is caused by a decrease in the production of melanocyte cells which form color pigments. As a result, hair that was originally black will turn white or gray with age.

The presence of gray hair can vary between individuals. Apart from age and genetic factors, there are many conditions that have been found to accelerate the appearance of gray hair. Stressful conditions are known to cause a lot of gray hair to grow because the body's hormones that are triggered by stress can accelerate hair color changes.

Apart from that, the habit of smoking also makes people gray more quickly because the contents of cigarettes damage the melanin production process for hair. For those of you who want to reduce the growth of gray hair, you don't need to bother. The thing is, you can try using natural ingredients as an alternative solution that is effective in reducing gray hair while growing thick hair again .

One of them is by using a mixture of rice water and ginger, as reported by t on Sunday (11/2) from @diyglowpage Instagram. Rice water contains active substances such as para-aminobenzoic acid which is believed to help restore the original color to graying hair.
