A thick healthy beard is a major factor that shows off your manliness. Having a beard has a ton of benefits for your skin too. It can smoothen up your facial skin, protect your face from dust, and hide those embarrassing pimples you have.
However, as these day men experience premature greying of beard even before their 30s, most prefer to go for a clean shave. So if you are a bloke experiencing the sudden appearance of some grey whiskers, here is a technique that will help you to get rid of that problem. Before we start, let’s try to identify your biggest beard killer.
Reasons that lead to premature greying of beard
1) Too many worries and stress
When you are undergoing a lot of worries or too much stress in your life, your body will start showing it off too. No matter how much you try to hide it from the world unless you change your routine and reduce your worries it won’t go away.
2) Dehydration, lack of nutrients and inadequate sleep
Unless you take a balanced diet, at least once per day and drink adequate amounts of water combined with good night sleep, your beard won’t be looking healthy at all. Dehydration will only lead to the accumulation of toxins within our bodies leading to a grey beard.
To flush out those toxins, we need a lot of water. If you want to find out whether you are taking in adequate amounts of water or not, take a look at the color of your urine. If it’s too much yellowish, that means your body lacks water.
3) Overconsumption of alcohol
Alcohol is one of the biggest beard killers when taken in immense amounts. So unless you want to look much older than you are in no time, reduce or better stop alcohol consumption for some time. Your beard and your liver will thank you for this in the long run.
4) Vitamin deficiency
In order to keep a healthy beard, the body should produce adequate amounts of melanin. But if you are not taking adequate amounts of vitamin B12 and copper, iron, iodine, and minerals, your melanin production won’t be up to the mark. This will have a deteriorating effect on your beard.
5) Hereditary factors
This is one reason for getting a premature grey beard. If it’s the case, there won’t be much to do about it other than hoping for the best. I too underwent the grey beard problem when I was in my early twenties. As a result, I tried almost every remedy I could lay my hands on to cure it.
However in the end after following everything possible and doing tons of mistakes, I found out few remedies that worked the best, and now I’m going to tell it to you, so pay close attention.
Remedies to get rid of the premature grey beard
Step 1. Prepare the curry leaf drink
Curry leaves (Murraya koenigii) are one of the best remedies to reverse the premature greying of beard. Take about 20 cleaned curry leaves and put it into 300ml of lukewarm water. Next, boil the Luke warm water until the mixture’s volume reduces roughly to half. Next, let it cool down and drink after step 2.
Step 2. Curry leaf and coconut oil massage
Take a tablespoon of pure coconut oil and add some curry leaves to it (about 5 or 6). Transfer it to a suitable vessel and let it boil. While boiling pay close attention to it, as soon as the curry leaves start turning brown emitting a smell, stop boiling and let it cool down. If a smoke arises from curry leaves while doing this then it’s too late, and the leaves are fried, so start it again.
Once it cools, wash your face with hot water and wipe your face with a towel. (The reason for doing this is to open up the pores of your skin so that the absorption will be quick). Crush the curry leaves with your fingertips and mix it well with the oil and apply it to all the grey hairs you have. Massage gently for at least about 3 minutes.)
Next, take the curry leaf drink you made during step 1 and drink it (as mentioned earlier). Be sure to leave the oil on your face for half an hour at least, and wipe it off with a tissue. Continue this procedure for at least a few weeks to get the best results.
Step 3. Start doing something new and cut down your stress
Sit in a quiet place and ask what is wrong with yourself, and take steps to cut off that cause from your life. It can be your job or a certain situation, or it can be an intimate person in your life. Whatever it is, remember that we all deserve respect and comfort and none of us should suffer mentally.
Whenever you feel too much-worried, stop thinking about that whole scenario. Go out for a walk, mow the lawn or clean your garage, etc. Also, try meeting new people in person, visit some new surroundings. You can also try a new hobby like learning a musical instrument or joining a yoga class or a parkour gym.
This is because doing physical activities will boost your confidence. This will solve most insecurity problems in our life that leads to depression and stress. Finally, quit existing and learn to live your life according to the way that you want.
So remember, if you want to stop premature greying of beard, you first have to identify your beard killer. Secondly, intake your curry leaf drink daily for a few weeks while doing the curry leaf and coconut oil massage. Thirdly, remove yourself from situations that make you worry too much and learn to break free from monotonousness.
