Brief Answer:
D-Free lotion

Detailed Answer:

Use D-FREE lotion overnight on the scalp and wash it off first with an anti-dandruff shampoo and later with a good moisturizer shampoo. Repeat this twice a week for a month. After a month you just need to wash your hair twice a week with normal ph balanced shampoo.

I think grey hair issue has no permanent solution. It is better to color it of your choice. There are many factors leading to greying of hair importantly genetic which cannot be modified. A person's melanocytes will start regressing from age 30 and depends on region to region on a human body, the first is the scalp hair and the last is the pubic hair.

Hope this helps.
