Restore Your Gray Hair Back To Its Natural Color With Two Simple Ingredients

Many of us long to reverse signs of aging and prolong our youthful appearances. A huge sign of aging can be gray hair. Gray hairs appear when your body’s melatonin production slows down. Melatonin is responsible for producing our hair’s color. Other factors can play a role in increased graying, such as stress, smoking, diet, genetics, and illnesses.

Most of us go to the salon or pick up boxed dye to combat grays, a process we have to repeat monthly in order to keep gray hairs hidden.

With repeated dying, often times we damage our hair with harmful chemicals in the process. Not to mention that dying your hair every month can be costly. 

An alternative to repeated dye jobs is using simple ingredients commonly found in your kitchen to make an all-natural hair mask. Organic coconut oil and lemon juice can help to slow the graying process. Coconut oil is a natural moisturizer. It conditions hair, hydrates the scalp, and promotes healthy hair growth. Lemon juice is high in vitamin C and can help to balance the chemistry of the scalp by removing excess oil.

When these ingredients are combined in a hair mask, they can improve hair’s overall health while diminishing grays.


Organic Coconut Oil (enough to cover your whole head of hair)

3 Teaspoons of organic lemon juice (preferably freshly squeezed)


Create the hair mask by blending together the coconut oil and lemon juice until it’s an even, creamy consistency. Coat your hair with the mixture and the work the remaining into your scalp through massaging. Leave the mask on your hair for up to an hour then rinse hair with your normal shampoo. This hair mask can be repeated up to two times a week.
