Gray hair is one of the outward indications of aging that bothers a lot of people. But there are some natural options for avoiding it. The combination that some studies have reported effective is 100 mg of pantothenic acid (vitamin B5), 200 mg of PABA, and 50 g. of brewer’s yeast. It won’t be an overnight result, and it may not restore your hair to its original color 100 percent, but it may help restore some color over the course of a couple of months. Keep in mind, though, that it doesn’t impart a lasting effect, and the gray will return if you discontinue taking the supplements.
If this doesn’t work for you, you might try experimenting with some of the other natural ways of changing hair color, such as lemon, sun exposure, and henna. There also seem to be more herbal-based, non-chemical products available than ever before, so chances are good that you can change your appearance without endangering your health.
