Remedy for premature graying of scalp hair.

Detailed Answer:
Hello. Thank you for writing to us

I am Dr. Kakkar(Dermatologist and Venereologist). I have gone through your query and I have noted your concern.

You may take Calcium Pantothenate 200 mg once daily and/or Para Amino Benzoic Acid (PABA) 100 mg, orally for at least 6 months e.g PABATAB BZ tablets.
In addition I suggest you to use Melitane 5% gel, once daily (overnight), on scalp skin for 3-6 months e.g Altris gel or Melnora gel.
Response is slow and may not be complete. The goal of treatment is to arrest further progression of premature graying of hair.
These are prescription medications and i suggest you to kindly talk to your local practitioner for a prescription regarding the same.
