Gray hair can be disguised with natural ingredients that have minimal side effects.

  5 Maret 2024 09:00 - Apart from a sagging face and wrinkles, one of the signs that someone is aging is the appearance of gray hair on the head. Gray hair itself is a sign of aging which is characterized by the appearance of white strands of hair on the head. This condition is generally experienced by someone aged 30 years and over and will increase as they get older.

This happens because as a person gets older, the production of melanin in the hair follicles begins to decrease, so that the strands of hair that grow will not have perfect pigment. This is what causes gray hair to have a grayish white color.

Even so, in fact gray hair is not only experienced by elderly people, you know. But someone who is still relatively young can also grow gray hair on their head. There are many factors that trigger this condition, such as genetics, hormonal changes, lifestyle, frequent hair styling using heating tools and chemical dyes, and the effects of stress.

Even though it is a common thing experienced by everyone, the appearance of gray hair is quite disturbing to your appearance. It's not surprising that many people are looking for ways to disguise gray hair by turning it black again. But don't use chemical dyes, because chemical dyes will have a bad impact on hair health if used for a long time.

The content of black tea is for healthy hair, including to disguise gray hair.

Black tea has many benefits for hair health. This is thanks to the high antioxidant and caffeine content in it. This content is claimed to maintain healthy scalp and hair growth. Reporting from Healthline, the caffeine in black tea is also believed to be able to reach hair follicles and prevent DHT, a hormone that plays a role in hair loss in people suffering from baldness.

Apart from that, black tea can also increase melanin and keratin in the hair strands so that it can restore the hair's natural pigment. Apart from that, this tea is also effective in covering gray hair that has grown. In fact, its antioxidant content can reduce stress, which is one of the causes of hair loss and delays the growth of premature gray hair.
