Premature greying is well and truly an epidemic now. Time to fight it.
There was a time when only older people used to grey. One could look at a person with grey hair and immediately know they were in their 50’s. What a simpler time that was. Times have changed though. In today’s day and age, due to high-stress levels and pollution, grey hair can be seen among people as young as 16. It has become a legitimate concern for people and one that needs some amount of care.
Causes of grey hair
Everyone remembers that moment when they spot their first grey hair. While some people don’t bother, for the majority this moment is met by a combination of panic and contemplation.
There are some causes that are unintentional and not the person’s fault – genetics, Vitamin B12 deficiency, stress, thyroid issues etc. There are causes though, that are a direct result of our actions. Years of negligence and flippancy reflected through our hair.
Chemicals are not our friend
One of the most common causes is the haircare products we use - Shampoos and hair gels filled with harsh, inorganic and harmful chemicals. The biggest irony of the situation is that these do way more damage than good. While we use expensive hair products to look good in the present, the long term results are, well, pretty grey.
Hydrogen peroxide, which is in many hair dyes, is one such harmful chemical. Excessive use of products that contain hydrogen peroxide will eventually cause it to turn white. It’s just that it happens a lot faster than traditional greying caused by old age.
Not only do the harsh chemicals cause hair to grey, they also cause hair fall. Sometimes even more than 150 strands a day, which is fairly unnatural. All these are problems that need to be addressed. The quicker the better.
Make the switch to hair products that are free of harsh chemicals, parabens, silicones, SLS and petroleum by-products. We hardly take the time to read the list of ingredients in the products we buy. The Big cosmetic companies have caught all of us in this bubble of marketing and people hence pay big bucks for the big brands without knowing what they contain or the effects they have in the long run. It’s important that we pay attention and choose wisely.
Vedaearth cares for you
Imagine a scenario where three people from different generations are sitting together and all have the same shade of grey in their hair. That visual is demoralising and quite frankly, depressing.
You deserve better. Out hair oil is all you need to get rid of the anguish of looking 20 years older than you are. Our tested formulation made of Rosemary, Coriander and Palmarosa not only reduces greying, but also reduces hair fall. You deserve to look your age.
Hair is a big part of one’s personality. Everyone deserves hair that is equally healthy as it is beautiful. Be careful about what you put in there and make sure your hair flourishes, just like you.
