While some embrace grey hair like it’s no biggie (and actually pull it off quite well), it is a complete horror story for others. If you belong to the latter group, you’re not alone. Grey hair is not on everyone’s beauty checklist and it’s common to seek home remedies to darken hair as soon as you spot your first grey. So, if you are looking for magic ingredients that can darken your hair and help you get your natural hair colour back, look no further. Here are three natural ingredients that will turn your grey hair black and beautiful.

Black tea

Packed with tannic acid, black tea does full justice to its name. It darkens your hair over time naturally and makes it stronger and longer too. Make a strong black tea hair rinse by boiling five to six spoons of it in water. Run it through your hair once it’s lukewarm and let it sit for half an hour. Shampoo and repeat weekly. Brew some coffee beans with it for a nice brownish hair colour.

Onion paste

Yep, it will be stinky business, but hey, itl reverses greying, so it’s definitely worth a try. Onion has sulphur and is a must-try for a healthy and black mane. Grind one onion and add two tablespoons of olive oil and a few drops of lemon juice to it. Mix well and apply evenly on your hair. Leave it on for 20 minutes before washing it off. Repeat once a week.


You must have heard about this hair hero from your mom or your grandma and here is why they always had good things to say about this wonder ingredient. Not only does it turns your grey hair black, but also slows down the ageing clock and prevents premature greying. Use shikakai and amla powder to make a paste that can be used as a shampoo. Do this on a weekly basis to get dark and youthful hair.
