How can one get rid of grey hair ?

I am a 35 years old man , working in the UAE for the last 13 years. I became bald almost 8 years ago. Now for the last 4 years my hair , beard, mustache etc started graying as well. 20% of my hair may be white now including my beard, mustache, hair on the other parts of my body. My wife said you are treating this by some type of henna. I am more interested to treat my hair to darken black as I am comfortably using a wig.

Thanks for your query.
Many men get 20% white hairs by age of 35-40 yrs so that is normal.If it happens little earlier it can be related to stress,nutrition or hereditary.You can cover the white hairs with help of henna or a hair dye which will last for some time.It will not become permanent dark now.If you are comfortably using wig for head hairs it is fine.For a better understanding what you exactly need please write what you want to do.
Take care.

Hi..dear Kabeer.,
Thanks for choosing HCM..,
GREYING OF HAIRS....common in middle age people..,
It is due to ...Metabolic., nutrition deficiency.,
Stress and srain., genetic, and other factors..,
It is permenant ., not reversible.,
So the alternative is DYEING of hairs and wearing of WIGS..,
HENNA is long use...will give lustreless and pale of the hairs...So wigs are safe.,
WIGS are available with several different types of caps..,
and the hair of the wig is then attached to the cap using various techniques....,
Each cap type has its own distinct advantages....,
On most wigs, hair is attached in "wefts." ..,
These are strings of hair doubled over and sewn closely together in long strands. ..,
Today's better quality available is synthetic wigs (which are all you will find at,
are virtually indistinguishable from human hair, except to the most practiced eye....,
Synthetic wigs are easier to care for and lower priced. ..,
The monofilament fiber "hair" used to make synthetic wigs has "memory"..,
maintain is easy..,But long standing it is not worthful..,
So select Human type....discuss with Ur doctor..and go accordingly..,

So for these select human type of wigs..,

You can apply a hair dye instead of henna but do test yourself for hypersensitivity before applying..u can do that by applying a drop of the dye on back of ur elbow and wait for 24-48hrs
