Greying hair has become an increasing problem among young and older generations. Though age is a natural process of growing white and grey hairs, studies show that apart from the age factor, several causes can stimulate melanin loss in the hair at a young age. So, if you are bothered by streaks of white hair, opt for grey coverage hair colour treatments at the parlour and enjoy beautiful black luscious hair, as professional grey cover-ups are the niche services salons provide. Also, try choosing an organic colour for your hair that ensures good grey coverage while nourishing and protecting your hair from damage. At Chilli Couture, we provide the best way to cover grey hair using only organic, non-toxic colours that are suitable for your hair and also good for the environment. Our motto is to care for your hair and our planet with our range of eco-sustainable products

Now, let’s move on to the factors that cause premature greying of hair and its prevention. 

Grey hair: Causes & Explanation 

Several factors can affect the overall health of your hair and contribute to premature greying. So, to prevent further damage to your locks, read the causes mentioned below and try avoiding them. 

  1. Melanin reduction due to age factors: Melanin concentration in the hair decreases when a person ages, as the cells responsible for melanin production die. Thus, causing further greying of hair. It’s an entirely natural process that happens to everyone and is possible to delay by following some preventive measures discussed later in this article. 

  1. Family genes: Genes have a significant role in our health and well-being. Discoveries show that genes are crucial for the development of melanin. So, if your parents, grandparents, or other family members’ hair began to grey at a young age, you are more likely to do the same. Hence, defect in family genes tends to cause premature greying of hair. 

  1. Food habits: Biotin is a necessary protein that aids in healthy hair growth and is created in our bodies naturally from healthy food habits. Hence, good hair is something you can achieve from a balanced, nutritious diet that is high in zinc, vitamin D, vitamin B, and omega-3 fatty acids that will help you avoid premature hair greying. Also, taking Biotin supplements along with a balanced diet can help you achieve and maintain luscious, black locks. 

  1. Poor Lifestyle habits: Unhealthy choices, including drinking, smoking, and staying up late to sleep, are bad for everyone’s health. So, to prevent early greys, we must endeavour to eliminate any poor lifestyle habits and must replace them with good ones one at a time. 

  1. Stress, a toxic friend: Everyone is stressed nowadays because of grades, exams, employment, promotions, marriage, finances, etc. Increased stress levels can cause hormonal imbalance, resulting in premature hair greying. So if you want to maintain a healthy mane, try to keep your worry and anxiety at bay. 

  1. Pollution and environmental factors: The health of your hair is impacted negatively by pollution and other environmental factors like UV rays, hard water, snow, etc. Therefore, we should take good care of our hair and preserve it from all the harsh elements. 

  1. Underlying medical conditions: Sometimes, underlying medical conditions can cause grey hair production. Any long-term illness makes your body incapable of producing nutrients for your scalp, resulting in premature greying and hair loss. 

  1. Excessive sun exposure: One of the causes of premature greying could be constant sun exposure, as sunlight emits harmful UV rays that damage your skin and hair. Hence, cover your head with a scarf or hat and apply hair sunscreen before going outside in the sun. 

Measures to prevent grey hair 

Now that you know the causes of premature greying of hair, here are some steps you can follow to delay it. 

  1. Eat a balanced and nutrient-rich diet. 

  1. Let go of smoking and drinking.  

  1. Exercise regularly and get good sleep 

  1. Try reducing stress 

  1. Avoid excessive sun exposure, and never forget to apply hair sunscreen 

  1. Try installing a water filter for your shower to protect your hair from hard water. 

  1. Consult a trichologist for an expert opinion and preventive measures. 

  1. Use hair serums with Darkenyl compound to prevent premature greying. 

Types of grey coverage product  

Nowadays, applying hair colour is the best way to cover grey hair. There are several options to choose from while colouring your hair. Colours like mahogany, praline, dark brown, pitch black, etc., are some great options. But first, let us know the types of grey coverage products that are available:  

  • Semi-permanent colour 
  • Permanent colour 
  • Lightener 

Based on the above options, you can choose the colour you want to apply to your hair according to your liking. 

Chilli Couture: Hair colour treatments and spa 

Are you stressed with your grey hair? No worries, we have got your back. Our organic hair styling salon in Perth guarantees the best possible luxury hair treatments by our team of professionals. All our hair colours are organic and chemical-free, not damaging your hair or our environment, as they are 100% eco-friendly. Also, our grey coverage products stay on longer, resulting in fewer visits to the salon. But ensure that you get occasional root touch-ups to hide the visibility of grey roots.  

If you have a few grey hairs here and there, try going for a semi-permanent colour that will cover up your occasional silver streaks. But, if you have high amounts of grey hair, try opting for a permanent hair colour that will stay long enough. Our last option to prevent grey hair visibility is through disguise, like highlighting specific areas to mimic the grey colour as a highlight. So, it will look like you got a balayage without getting one.  

Grey hair is not the end of the world 

Grey hair can be irritating, but sometimes it is better to embrace it with open arms and make it your best pal. Further stressing out can only make things worse; instead, treat yourself with luxury hair spas and treatments and apply a hair colour that best suits you. Indeed, greying of hair cannot be reversed, but that should not stop you from styling it. Even grey locks can be your unique style statement. So, embrace it.
