Hair graying is a common problem among all age groups and it can affect the both genders. This problem is usually treated with chemical hair dyes. However, they are packed with chemicals and can damage your skin and your hair.
Fortunately, there is a natural remedy for this common issue. This effective remedy will cover your gray hairs and you won’t need any chemical hair dye. You will need one powerful ingredient- potato peels.
Potato Peels Benefits
The white potatoes are packed with iron, calcium, phosphorus, fibers, potassium, and vitamins A, B, and C. These nutrients promote hair growth and make the hair stronger. Moreover, the potato peels are also beneficial for darkening the gray hairs. The potato peels will mask the gray hairs due to the starches which act as a natural colorant. Therefore, regular use of potato peels will darken the gray hair and promote hair growth.
Potato Peel Rinse for Gray Hair Recipe
- Potato skins from about 6 potatoes (the more skins you use the stronger the solution will be)
- A pot of boiling water (adjust this according to your hair length and thickness)
- Essential oil (optional)
- Mesh strainer
- A clean bowl
First, boil the peels in a pot with water for about 25 minutes. Then, let it steep for 15 minutes and use a strainer to strain the liquid into a bowl. Discard the peels and add several drops of any essential oil. The rinse should be at room temperature so you can use it.
Shampoo and condition your hair as you usually do. Then, part your hair in several sections and pour the rinse over each section. Next, you can either rinse it with cold water or pat it dry with an old towel. Repeat this rinse process several times for a good coverage.
