At some point you just let greying hair be but if you feel you're greying prematurely you may want to cover the grey hairs up.
The older one gets the less melanin hair produces. Grey or colorless hair is the result of age. As we get older hair also gets more dry and wiry, it's less malleable and supple than the hair you grow in your youth.
Below are a few options for solving "The Grey Problem". You can purchase ingredients using the Amazon links at the end of the blog.
1. Dye hair with Henna and Amla
Handling henna is very messy. So make sure to have plenty of paper towels around. In addition, to avoid dying your skin, paste vaseline around the outer edge of your hairline like you would if you were going to relax your hair.
2. The Black Tea Remedy
Black tea is a quick and dirty remedy for covering grey hairs.
3. Sage Water Rinse
Sage restores hair's natural color and prevents premature greying.
If you make your own hair products you can use sage water instead of plain water in all your recipes as an anti-grey antidote.
Rosemary essential oil is the best essential oil for reducing the rate at which hair grey. You can add a few drops in your products, e.g. your regular shampoo and conditioner; it is also one of the key ingredients in Neno Natural's Hair Growth Stimulator.

Onion works for hair growth as well as grey hair. Just juice an onion and put the juice in your hair. Sounds stinky and gross right? Well most of the things that are good for us usually taste or smell bad. Onion will actually prevent grey hairs from returning as a property called catalase which occurs naturally on the scalp is maintained by the use of onion.

I use henna, amla, & indigo. You don't mention that you have to let henna sit for 12 hours for dye release to complete before you use it. Then apply it to freshly washed & towel dried hair,wrap your hair in plastic wrap & leave it in for 4 hours,shampoo out,then mix & apply indigo with a little salt added,wrap again & leave in for about an hour. Shampoo out,condition & voila! Jet black hair with no gray !! I got all that info & detailed instructions ...and my henna & indigo from here : hennaforhair.com. Heard about that site from natural hair message boards
