How to Protect Your Gray Hair From Turning Yellow

Caring for premature gray hair is different than with your natural color. The texture is different and its lack of pigment makes it more susceptible to environmental factors. If left ignored, the appearance of gray hair can worsen, leaving us looking even older than our age. You can avoid this by being aware of the negative environmental factors and take good care of our hair. In doing so, the effects of the environment on our gray hair will be dramatically reduced.

Your hair is made up of colored molecules, mainly blue, red and yellow. As we grow older, this pigment slowly dissipates, leaving behind gray hair. This is the main reason why hair turns gray. Once this un-pigmented hair is exposed to the environment, it becomes susceptible to picking up traces of other colors. The most common factor that can change the color of gray hair is prolonged exposure to the sun.

You already know that hair will grow lighter from the sun. This is due to a deposit of extra yellow pigment into the follicles. Exposure to high levels of chlorine, smoking and certain pollutants will have the same unnatural looking effect. When your hair is gray, the result will be hair that is yellow in appearance due to the extra pigment. Luckily, there are some steps you can take to prevent this from happening to you or you can call it as a white hair treatment.

The most obvious and effective way to prevent this yellowing of your gray is by protecting it from the sun. If you plan on spending a good deal of time outdoors, make sure your head is covered with a hat or shawl. A clarifying shampoo used monthly will also help with the other factors that cause yellow hair by removing the harmful residue.

There are also specialty shampoos that you can try which have been developed specifically to prevent the yellowing of gray hair. Blue shampoo is probably the most well known and one of the best at preventing gray hair from yellowing. These work by adding a tiny amount of blue pigment to the hair to counteract the abundance of yellow. Take caution and use this type of product sparingly. Not only do many blue shampoos dry out your hair, they can also cause your hair to have a slight blue tint if used in excess.

You can help to fight the drying hair by using a good conditioning product like Pantene Pro-V Silver Expressions or Clairol Shimmer Lights. Both of these products work well at restoring moisture to the hair and leaving it vibrant and soft.

If you can, install an inexpensive shower head filter in your bathroom. This will cut down on the amount of chlorine in the water you are washing your hair with, further protecting it from damaging yellowing agents. Quitting smoking will also be a big help. You can find out more on

Yellow hair is completely preventable once you learn how to protect your gray against certain elements. Going gray is a life altering event for many as it is. There is no reason to make it worse with a head full of yellow hair.

Three Proven Methods to Reduce Stress Naturally

Some people can set their clock by their stress levels. Everyone battles with the occasional blues, but must all be condemned to bouts of paranoia, fearful moods, and days of despondency? Severe stress is not normal, nor is it invincible. You can wrangle with it, control it, manage it so it doesn’t gain the upper hand. Here are three simple, easy techniques to manage stress in your life.

1. Exercise.

The greatest threat to health and wellbeing is not cancer, is not HIV, is not Alzheimer’s Disease. It is sitting. Martha Grogan, a cardiologist at the prestigious Mayo Clinic, says, “For people who sit most of the day, their risk of heart attack is about the same as smoking.” Why not move? Why not dance, clean, run, swim or garden?

Cardiovascular exercise releases endorphins, hormones that act like natural painkillers to mute pain and ease tension. A healthy body allows you to do the things you love, be it kayaking or gardening. Physicians recommend exercising for at least 30 minutes daily, but remember, as Genevieve Healy says, “30 minutes a day at the gym may not counteract the detrimental effects of 8, 9 or 10 hours of sitting.” So power down the screens, and power up your life.

2. Get a massage.

Seriously. Who doesn’t want a massage? But not just any masseuse will do. For maximum stress relief, look for a licensed therapist with proficiency and experience in stress relief. These therapists use their physical legerdemain to unlock your peace and relax your mind as well as your muscles. According to the Mayo Clinic, massage has been shown to help:

• Improve sleep habits;
• Relieve digestive disorders;
• Fix nerve pain;
• Decrease headaches;
• Improve muscle recovery.

So try out a sweet Swedish massage or a thorough deep-tissue massage. Talk to your doctor if you have questions.

  1. Meditate.

Meditation, contrary to popular thought, is natural. Watching football on television, playing smartphone games, and otherwise spending all free time engaged is most certainly not natural. So unplug. Unwind. Meditation is not the sole domain of Tibetan Buddhist monks. Focused or transcendental meditation has been shown to increase focus, decrease stress, improve memory recall and bolster creativity. Scientific studies have linked meditation to decreased heart rate, blood pressure, oxygen consumption and respiration. All it takes is 5-10 minutes a day of tai chi, yoga, relaxation exercises or focused meditation.

Stress need not be your god. But not everyone knows how to actively and successfully manage stress. Guidance and from an experienced professional can help you cope with, even eliminate, your stress. Check out The Inside Out Effect. It’s a holistic therapy practice helping people find happiness and health.

A Holistic Approach to Addiction Treatment

Holistic treatments for addiction can provide additional assistance during the recovery process. While holistic approaches are not enough on their own, under normal circumstances, they are great additions to a program.

What Are Common Holistic Treatments?

Holistic treatments for addiction include animal therapy, as well as acupuncture, aromatherapy, biofeedback, creative arts and coloring therapy, herbal therapy, homeopathy, imagery, journaling, massage and other types of bodywork, meditation, music, nutrition, and yoga. Some people also believe in floral therapy and light therapy.

What is Animal Therapy?

Also referred to as “Pet Therapy,” animal therapy is often used to help people who are dealing with chronic illnesses; it’s considered to be both healing and educational. There are several psychological and physical benefits in patients as they engage with animals, including reduced blood pressure, lowered heart rate, improved beta-endorphin levels, lowered stress levels, fewer feelings of anger and anxiety, better social engagement, and higher feelings of patience and self-esteem. Some patients are encouraged to get a therapy pet, which is an animal (that’s been trained to provide animal therapy.

Equine Therapy

Equine therapy has been used for several years, at first as therapy for people suffering from developmental problems and physical disabilities. Today, it’s still used for those reasons, as well as treating people with anxiety, eating disorders, and depression. People who are recovering addicts are known to benefit from equine therapy. This outdoor therapy uses nature to help form a relationship between the patient and the horse, which helps the patient to become more confident, trusting, and patient.

Where To Get Help

Pet Partners is an international resource for patients who are interested in animal therapy. has articles that talk about animal therapy as well we how it can benefit individuals and varying groups of people. There’s also volunteer and training information on their website. If you’re thinking of checking into an addiction recover center, consider the Morningside Recovery Center., an animal-assisted therapy foundation, is a non-profit that believes in using animals to help heal and rehabilitate ill patients. Their website has videos and books related to animal therapy, and they also have seminars and training programs.

Who Wants to Live Forever

Do you want to live forever? Well, technically it might not be possible to never die, but it is certainly possible to look young even when you are already older.

It turns out that women are not the only ones who are concerned about their looks and the way they age. When you visit places such as, you will realize that more and more men as well really care about the way they are. You might also want to ask around in your family about the way the men in your vicinity feel about aging. You will probably see that they would like to take part in anti-aging therapy if they had a chance to do so. I must say that I completely understand it and that I would like to back them on that.

There are really many reasons to make sure that you have access to anti-aging therapy. Probably one of the main reasons is to look younger, but there is more to it rather than just looking good. Anti-aging is also all about feeling good about yourself. When you look younger and when you know that some steps were taken to help you feel and look better, you are going to automatically feel rejuvenated. Do you know how it feels like? If not, then don’t panic, but know that something can be done about it if you know how to make things like that happen.

I would like you to know that you can always visit the website of UCTC to get some more information about the anti-aging procedures that they offer to everybody who is willing to undergo such procedures. It doesn’t even matter how young or old you are. You don’t have to be very old in order to take advantage of the latest progress in anti-aging technology. Even some very young people out there decide on them knowing that adding a few years to their looks can help them land a better job or to improve their social life.

How is your social life doing at the moment? Do you think that it could greatly improve if you decide to make some changes in your life? Looking young can certainly help a person not only look more confident but also feel more confident. Confident people are always happier, always having more friends and always more relaxed knowing that they can achieve any goal that is ahead of them. They are not afraid of anything and they take full advantage of the life they live. If you fancy the description of the confident people that I have just provided, you might want to do something about your life now even if you are still very young. I am sure that there are some wrinkles on your face that could be removed or some other defects that could be easily corrected. The technology to do such things is pretty advanced so I don’t see any reason you wouldn’t want to take advantage of it. Do it right now before it is too late.
