I am living with hypothyroid and have premature gray hair. How can I stop my hair turning gray?

Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid glands do not produce sufficient thyroid hormones. It occurs more commonly in women than in men. Some studies reveal that hypothyroidism could cause premature graying of hair.

Some home remedies for hypothyroidism are as follows:

  • Minimize on your salt intake.
  • Avoid oily and spicy foods.
  • Avoid peaches, pears, strawberries, cauliflower, African cassava mustard greens, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, spinach, radishes, rutabaga, and millet.
  • Drink plenty of water, at least 16 glasses per day.
  • Add one tablespoon of virgin coconut oil to a cup of milk and drink it every morning for a month.
  • Some home remedies that you can use for gray hair are as follows:
  • Grind one tablespoon of the pulp of Indian gooseberries with one tablespoon of limejuice. Then massage this mixture into the hair before going to bed. Wash your hair the next morning.
  • You can soak shredded ginger in honey and leave it overnight. You can then eat one tablespoon of this mixture every morning.
  • You can also try massaging the butter that is made from cow's milk into the roots of your hair. Do this massaging twice a week to prevent premature graying.
  • Eat a proper, balanced diet that includes protein-rich foods such as eggs, nuts, pulses, and milk.
