      Sir, The hairs which are grey cannot be turned into black. But the new grown hair will be black depending on the age factor and health of the individual.

    • Dr Malini Bhat says:

      Sir, The grey hair won’t become black by the use of this oil. Applying this oil will prevent premature greying of hair.

      Knowing the reason of greying of hair and giving treatment for the same will subside it.
