Greying of hair is often a great concern for people as grey hair make them look much older than they are! The problem can be caused by factors like a genetic predisposition, poor nutrition, hormonal fluctuations, smoking, pollution, stress, use of unsuitable hair products, and certain diseases such as chronic colds, sinusitis, and thyroid disorders. Potatoes and their peels are long known for darkening hair and preventing/treating grey hair thanks to their nutritious nature and grey hair staining properties.
