Grey Hair Dye Recipe

My neighbor put me on the search for natural hair recipes to get rid of grey hair. This one had the most positive recommendations and reviews so I figured I’d share it on the blog. Enjoy!

What You Need: 1/2 cup of dried sage, 2 cups of water

Directions: Simmer 1/2 cup dried sage in 2 cups water for 30 minutes, then steep for several hours. Apply to hair and leave on until dried. Then rinse and dry. Repeat weekly, until desired shade, then monthly to maintain color.

*The process must be repeated weekly for at least a month before you notice any changes.

Below are a few reviews of the recipe…

“After using the sage the normal coloring returns to the hair. It is not a ‘color-change’ shocker, and it softens and allows me to control the curls, and the amount of grey. I have used this through the years and it has never damaged my hair. I stop using it and the grey gradually returns and it is even prettier than the time before.”

“My sister was totally grey headed and after a month of daily using this solution, she had her normal light brown hair. which she had not seen for over ten years, and she dabbs it on once or twice a week now to keep her normal color, and she is 40. I am 48 and do not want to be grey just yet.”

Wow. I am going to spread the word on this recipe. I use Henna for coloring. But, I guess I will put this in a safe place for the next 15 years;-)
