5 Best DIY Recipes For Natural Black Hair
We Indians are obsessed with black hair. A single strand of gray hair causes a moment of great panic state. I still remember how I wept when I saw my first gray hair strand, thankfully it is now reversed and I have that strand black again.
But not all see a similar miracle like I saw, and people need to take good care of hair to maintain the black hair color. Of course hair graying with age is something that somehow cannot be prevented, though it can be delayed, but these days the polluted environment, lack of nourishment and strenuous life styles are leading to premature hair graying.
To combat this, a healthy diet is a must and some extra hair care is required. Today I shall share some DIY recipes for natural black hair.
Black Tea remedy
To use Black tea to keep hair naturally black, boil two teaspoons of tea leaves and let it brew for few minutes. Now and let it cool till the water becomes darker. Apply it all over your hair. Rinse it off with water. Avoid using shampoo with the tea water.
Potato Peel Rinse
To prepare a potato peel rinse take around five potatoes, wash them and peel them. Now put the peels in a cup.
In a pan pour two cups of cold water and add the peels to the water. Bring the water in the pan to a boil, now lower the heat and simmer for five minutes.
Turn off the stove and allow it to completely cool down. Now strain the liquid in a pan. Add in a few drops of any essential oil of your choice for aroma. Use this liquid as a hair rinse after washing your hair and keep your hair naturally black.
Henna is one of the oldest ingredients used in hair care. For henna pack I will suggest to collect fresh henna leaves from henna plant rather than to purchase the commercially sold henna.
Now make a fresh paste by grinding the henna leaves. Add three teaspoons of amla powder to the freshly ground henna leaves and add one teaspoon of coffee powder. Now add a small amount of curd and mix all the ingredients thoroughly well.
Apply this pack on hair and scalp. Leave it until dry and then wash it off with a mild shampoo.
If you have no access to fresh henna leaves, then best bet is to buy henna powder from any of the herbal brand.
