Melanin, a hormone that adds pigment to your hair, overtime breaks down, resulting in white or grey hair. And it is not just age which determines the body's capability to synthesise melanin, external factors such as hormonal imbalance, vitamin deficiency, smoking, genetic condition, etc., also make a difference.

Now, let's take a look at the DIY mask for grey hair. Main ingredient included in this mask is potato skin. You heard us right! Potato, particularly sweet potato, can make magic happen to your hair.

How, you ask? Let us enlighten you. Potato is loaded with protein, calcium, fibre and vitamins A, B, C and E, which not just mask grey hair, but also prevent hair shedding and thinning.

The starch in the potato peel acts as a natural colourant, which effectively reverses grey hair and adds a lustrous shine to your locks.

Note - The peels work amazing in staving off grey hair, but only temporarily. However, it involves no side effects, unlike toxic chemicals in hair colours, and when used consistently, it boosts hair growth and adds an enviable shine to your mane!
