There is a common fallacy that gray hair is something that everyone is just “stuck” with. But this isn’t true. It can actually be prevented and reversed with two common ingredients found in the kitchen. Read on for more information on how you can use coconut oil and lemon juice to keep your hair the same lasting youthful color that it has always been.
In a small bowl that is microwaveable, add a quarter cup of coconut oil. Then, microwave it for one minute. The oil should be warm to the touch. Be sure not to overheat the oil because it could cause burns if it is too hot. Next, cut a lemon in half. Squeeze the juice of the lemon into the oil.
There should be at least three tablespoons of juice. Stir it up well. If you have long hair, you can double or triple this recipe to be sure that you can have an adequate amount of it. Apply this mixture to your scalp and hair. Leave it on for about an hour before washing it out with regular shampoo.
This hair treatment should be done once a week as soon as the gray hair starts to show through. It works by healing the cellular damage that is caused by aging. Both the coconut oil and lemon juice are full of important vitamins that soak into the hair to heal it. And as an added bonus, this treatment also reverses dandruff that is caused by the scalp being too dry.
