Although you might blame kids, work, lack of sleep and long commutes, gray hair actually occurs naturally with age. You might notice a few grays along your hairline that quickly spread as the years go by. Instead of reaching for a box of permanent hair dye or visiting the salon, try a natural remedy to slowly darken your hair overtime: potato peels. The starch in potato peels acts as a natural colorant that helps slowly cover your grays over a matter of weeks or months.
Things you’ll need
- Five to six medium to large potatoes
- Large cooking pot
- Large bowl
- Old shampoo bottle
- Moisturizing shampoo and conditioner
Remove the peels for five or six medium to large potatoes. Set the flesh aside and place the peels inside a large cooking pot. Fill the pot with 1/2 gallon water. Bring the water to a rolling boil over high heat. Allow the peels to boil for 20 to 30 minutes.
