Hair turning grey. Using cantharis hair oil, aamla and reetha on hair. How to prevent grey hair?

I would like to enquire relating to my hair problems. My hair started turning white 3 years ago. I have earlier consulted a homeopathic doctor who suggested me to use Cantharis hair oil & to apply aamla & reetha on my hair, but i do not see any positive change in my hair yet. I would like to know what else can i do to protect my hair from turning white.

Thanks for writing to us.
If you are below 30 years of age then this greying of hair is premature and is known as premature canities. If you are beyond 30 then its just a normal ageing process.
Premature canities can be genetic and it can be due to nutritional deficiency, use of chemicals, stress, smoking etc.
Treatment requires intake of tablets containing calcium pantothenate or PABA. You may also apply melitane based product once in a day to prevent further greying. Melitane is a recently discovered promising peptide compound, helpful in preventino of the same. It also has the property of turning grey hair back to fully pigmented black hair.
hope that helped.
take care
