The aging process brings unpleasant changes such as gray hairs on the head, but it’s not the sole factor for the condition. Genetic factors, chemotherapy, nutritional deficiencies and malnutrition can be the culprits as well.
There are many products on the market which claim that they can cover your gray hairs, but they often cost a lot and are sometimes ineffective. Even worse, they contain harmful chemicals that can damage your hair and scalp beyond repair.
Luckily, there is a simple natural mixture that can help. It’s made of lemon and coconut oil, and will make your hair look great again.
Coconut oil and lemon mixture against gray hair
Coconut oil has powerful antimicrobial properties and contains lauric acid and fatty acids which will reinforce your hair roots and stimulate hair growth. The nutrients in the oil will nourish your scalp and will remove excess sebum buildup from the hair follicles. The oil is often used in many hair products as it can moisturize your hair and give it a shiny look.
On the other hand, lemon is rich in vitamin C and other nutrients that have antioxidant properties and will prevent the graying of your hair.
The remedy can’t prevent the natural process of aging, but it will stop or prolong it while making your hair look amazing. Here’s how to prepare the mixture:
- 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice
- 50 ml. of organic coconut oil
Mix the ingredients in a bowl and apply the mixture on wet hair while massaging it gently onto your scalp. Let it work for 45 minutes to an hour, then wash your hair with a mild shampoo. Repeat the process twice a week and your hair will look better than ever!
