As you know premature graying can be in your heredity or it can be due to lack of vitamins and minerals or due to some underlying health condition. And at times there may not be any reason. However, you should not feel depressed and have low self esteem. There are many other people having same problem and you are not the only one. Eat a healthy balanced diet consisting of essential vitamins and minerals. Take one tsp of Indian gooseberry powder and mix it with one tsp of honey. Eat regularly in the morning. Also apply oil containing Indian gooseberry powder on your scalp. Increase the intake of protein containing food such as eggs, whole grains, cereals, lean meat.
