Grey Hair Dye Recipe

dt_9083287a

I make a strong ‘tea’ of Sage and a bit of Rosemary, strain it and refrigerate it, and before I wash my hair, I spray it on the base of the grey patches of hair, even have massaged it in. leave it for 5 – ten minutes and then wash as usual, and care for my hair as I normally do. After a few weeks of this (I do this almost daily), the grey is disappearing.

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 pretier 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.

Rosemary & Sage Tea Colorant

To make a strong rosemary & sage tea use equal amounts of rosemary & sage to 1 cup of water, combine ingredients and steep for 10 minutes, strain and use liquid for the colorant.

NOTE: These processes must be repeated daily for a few weeks before you notice any changes.

    I have been using this method, for several years, to cover an almost full head of grey hair. My childhood hair color was very blonde and now I am a champagne blonde. My hairdresser loves the color and I get tons of comments on how nice the color is. Am now age 68.
    I used it daily for 30 days and now once a month–works great, try it.
