I am a 35 year old man with graying eyebrows. One eyebrow in particular is graying A LOT more quickly than the other one.
To be honest, although I want to address any internal health concerns, I am looking to begin a topical that might reverse the gray ASAP.
All natural would be ideal but I might consider a pharmaceutical.
Anyway, one site suggests the list below.
Does anyone have any thoughts, knowledge, or experience in this area? Might anything in this list help?
It would be sincerely appreciated as this problem is really bothering me.
Thanks in advance!
Here is the article/list:
Application of Topical Nutrients
The following are universally accepted topical solutions that are applied to improve the nutrients that the hair receives and fight against graying hair. Some of these are ancient remedies and are proven trough time.
Eugenol oil - Applied topically, the active ingredients of eugenol oil come from cloves. Eugenol oil has demonstrated to restore the dolor of the hair.
Amla oil - This oil strengthens the follicles of the hair facilitates pigmentation and hair growth.

Ashwagandha - This one increases the melanin in the hair treating the grays and giving back its color.
Superoxide dismutase - Are compounds that are often found in hair gels to protect against graying of the hair.
