Brew a few cups of a strong potion, allow it to cool and then pour it all over your hair. Let this liquid stay on your hair for as long as possible. 20-30 minutes minimum. And then wash off using just plain water. The effects are cumulative so just repeat the process at least 2-3 times more or till you get the desired hue.
