Hair turning grey before the age of thirty is early or premature greying of hair. The causes could be genetic or hereditary, anemia, vitamin deficiencies , thyroid disorder or smoking etc. Graying of hair beyond the age of thirty is normal ageing process. However in some, hair can grey at alarming rate.
To help you out with your concern, you may follow these
Improve your diet, take well balanced diet XXXXXXX in vitamins, copper, iron, selenium etc

You may take hair supplements containing amino acids, vitamins like b12, pantothenic acid, biotin and minerals like copper iron selenium. Pantothenic acid is said to have a preventive action in greying of hair.( you may take tablet follihair new or keraglo XXXXXXX etc)

Do not expect early or overwhelming results as greying of hair is difficult to treat or prevent.

The best option is to color the hair. XXXXXXX is safe to use. Growing a XXXXXXX plant and using its leaves would be too cumbersome. instead go with XXXXXXX powder availabe in market. There is no problem in mixing lemon juice or coffee in XXXXXXX It is not going to harm your hair. Many mix beet root juice or Catechu( kattha in Hindi) to get a darker color.
You may apply sesame seed or sesame seed oil on hair. It is safe. However do not keep oil in hair for prolonged period as sesame oil is thick and will attract dirt may cause dandruff and hair fall. keeping it overnight is ok.
As far as diet is concerned, intake of Amla, curry leaves is said to prevent greying of hair. Diet XXXXXXX in vitamin B12 like XXXXXXX leafy vegetables, copper (like almonds, sun flower seeds, mushrooms, lentils), selenium ( sea food like salmon) will also help to some extent.

Hope I have answered all your doubts. Should therebe further query, feel free to write back.
Take care.
