Shampoo’s to Darken Grey Hair

Do you have a problem with grey hair? Well, you’re certainly not alone. Around 50% of people get grey hair until the age of 50. These problems are generally related to factors like stress, heredity, and aging. Your hair gets its color because of melanin. So, the less melanin, the lighter the hair. After a particular age, or in some cases right from the beginning, melanin production is less, resulting in grey hair.

What to look for:

As we age, our hair loses its fullness and shine as well as all the natural oils present in the scalp. So, we need to use shampoos that won’t strip down our natural hair nourishment factors and will also be gentle on our hair. Pick a shampoo that’ll moisturize both your hair and scalp and don’t overuse it since it can cause dryness and irritation.
