Treat Grey Hair In A Natural Way

Premature greying of hair is a problem faced by many. There is no minimum age bar for your natural hair to turn grey. This change is more noticeable with individuals who have a dark hair color.

Today, many school going children are also victims of this. It makes some feel uneasy in public , while some lose on confidence. This feeling is natural! Simple reason being, our hair is one of the most precious part of our life as well as our look! And above all , everyone of us would love to have healthy looking hair!

Majority of adults make use of hair color to cover up the grey's. Hair colors are loaded with chemicals and I would not advice their frequent use. Painting your scalp with hair color frequently , means it to chemicals.

Even if your hair color is the most expensive in the market, I would not recommend its frequent use . Try to use it once a month or occasionally.

Touching up of grey hair can be done naturally using Henna. The scientific name for it is Lawsonia Inermis. Many of us must have already heard about it and used it as well. It has been in use to dye hair, temporary tattooing hands, etc since antiquity.

The name is misused for other skin and hair dyes, such as black henna or neutral henna, which do not derive from the plant.

Heena should be applied atleast once a month. Apart from adding silk and shine to your hair, it also treats dandruff, thus making your hair look healthy and bouncy.  

Preparation of henna mixture needs:

1) Plain Dark black tea(without milk and sugar) - strained and cooled at room temperature.

2) 3 Table spoon beetroot juice - adds color to you hair

3) 1 egg - conditiones your hair

Mix heena powder with tea to form a smooth paste. Leave it overnight.

Next day, mix 1 egg and beetroot juice. Before applying heena , massage your scalp and hair with lukewarm coconut oil. Leave it for one hour.

Apply heena uniformly. Keep it for 2 hrs 30 mins.

Wash your hair without applying soap /shampoo. Your hair may seem a little oily but will surely result in a better hair color.

Towel dry your hair.
The next day you can wash your hair normally , using a shampoo. Repeat towel drying of hair.
You will notice the change in your hair immediately. People who have sinus/cold problem may leave heena on their hair for a shorter duration. Avoid sitting in an air-conditioned room while it is applied on your hair.

Thus color your hair naturally!
