Bring Back Your Hair’s Natural Color With The Help Of This Mixture

lemon, coconut oil, hair

On the base of the hair follicles, there are these things called pigment cells. These cells produce pigments which act as the determinant of the hair color. If they produce an insufficient amount of pigments or no pigments at all, the hair will become colorless and thus, it will turn into white.

How can you prevent this dilemma? By nurturing the scalp and preserving the hair follicle's base. If the base is healthy automatically the pigment cells are healthy, too. This way you can save yourself from gray hair for a longer time.

There are a lot of factors that can contribute to loss of hair pigments. And some of them are genetic disorders, hormonal imbalance, nutritional deficiency, malnutrition, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, chemotherapy, radiation, electric hair dryers and concentrated hair dyes.
Although hair dyes help you cover your gray hair, it actually damages it due to its chemical contents. Therefore, the best way to care for it is a natural way.

Here, we are introducing you to a homemade remedy that will not only bring back your hair's natural color but will also make it look stunning. You only need two ingredients...

Lemon and Coconut Oil

Lemon is a good source of vitamin B and C and phosphorous which are responsible for nourishing the hair and treating the cause of its graying. On the other hand, coconut oil is rich in anti-oxidants and contains anti-microbial properties, medium-chain fatty acids, and lauric acid. All of it helps in conditioning the scalp and in strengthening and re-growing the hair. Also, they decrease protein loss and reverse the hair's graying process.

  • 50ml of Organic Coconut Oil 

  1. Mix all the ingredients in a container. 
  2. Apply it onto the hair. 
  3. Massage it onto the scalp. 
  4. Leave it for at least an hour. 
  5. Wash it with a mild shampoo. 
  6. Repeat once a week for an amazing result.
