Your hair goes through a natural cycle of dying and then being regenerated. As your hair follicles age, they produce less color.
Although your genetics will determine the actual start of graying, once you’re 35 years old, your aging hair follicles are likely to produce awhite or gray hairto replace the last hair that died.
While some people celebrategray hairas a sign of maturity and wisdom, many feel that they look older when their hair starts growing gray and would like the gray to go away for a more youthful appearance.

Natural hair dye
You can make your own hair dye with various herbs. Since this type of hair dye isn’t as strong as commercially available chemical dyes, the dying process must be repeated a number of times before you see change. Suggested primary ingredients include:
blonde hair: chamomile flower tea, lemon peel, saffron, marigold flower red hair: beet juice, carrot juice, rose petals, brown hair: coffee, cinnamon black hair: black walnut, black tea, sage, nettle
Some hair dye recipes suggested by advocates of natural cosmetics include:
Torai ridged gourd(Luffa acutangula). Boil torai in coconut oil until it turns black (about four hours). When it cools down, massage a small amount into your scalp and hair. After 45 minutes, wash it out of your hair. Repeat two to three times a week.
Bhringraj(Eclipta prostrata). In a small pan over low heat, mix 1 teaspoon of bhringraj and 2 tablespoons of coconut oil. Rub the warm mixture into your hair and scalp. Wash it out after one hour. Repeat two to three times a week.
Black pepper(Piper nigrum). Mix 1 tablespoon of freshly ground black pepper and 1 teaspoon of fresh lemon juice into ½ cup of plain yogurt. Massage the mixture into your hair, leaving it in place for 1 hour and then rinsing it out. Repeat three times per week.
Henna(Lawsonia inermis). Mix enough henna powder into one cup of black tea or coffee to make a paste with the consistency of yogurt. Cover the bowl and let it sit. After six hours mix in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil and then apply the mixture to your hair. Rinse it off after 1 to 3 hours, depending on the depth of color you want.
As you age, your follicles age too. And as your hair follicles age, they produce less color. This results in less melanin and pigmentation in the hair, which then appears to be gray or white.
If you prefer your hair to have color, there are a number of solutions. Many natural home remedies for gray hair are promoted by advocates of natural healing.
These approaches have not been clinically studied to see how well they work. It’s also possible to be allergic to many of these remedies. So, if you decide to try out a home remedy tochange your hair color, consider discussing the remedy with your doctor first.
Your doctor may offer insight (based on your current health, the medications you’re taking, and other issues) about the ways that a home remedy might affect you.
