White or grey hair for an adult is acceptable but if our child’s hair starts greying it is a matter of concern. Not only the child may become conscious of his/her premature greying but may also start losing his/her confidence, as it is about self-image. So what could a parent do? Precaution and awareness is the key here. But the question is how does a parent watch out for premature greying in their child? There are some home remedies that help in reducing premature greying in children.
# Curry Leaves
Curry leaves are known to be one of the best home remedies to cure premature greying in children. Heat the hair oil in a pan and add curry leaves to it. Once the curry leaves turn black, remove from fire, filter it and let it cool. Once it’s room temperature, apply this mixture on your child’s hair.
# Amla & Coconut Oil
Amla or Indian gooseberry is another good source to treat premature greying in children. Take coconut oil in a pan and add amla pieces to it. Let it come to boil. Remove from fire, filter it and let it cool down. Apply this concoction to your child’s hair and leave it overnight. Wash it with lukewarm water the next morning.
# Margosa Herb Oil
Margosa herb is another natural remedy that helps in reducing premature greying in children. You may massage your child’s head with this herb oil and leave it overnight. Wash your child’s hair with lukewarm water.
# Sour Buttermilk
Just like you apply curd to your hair you could apply sour buttermilk to your child’s hair and leave it for 15-20 minutes and then wash his or her hair with lukewarm water.
# Blend of Sesame & Carrot Seed Oil
This is another effective treatment for premature greying in children. You may blend four tablespoons of sesame oil with half tablespoon of carrot seed oil and apply this mixture on your child’s hair. Leave it overnight and wash it the next day with lukewarm water.
