Getting a gray hair can be triggered by a number of health conditions but also poor diet.
For example, it can be caused by hormonal fluctuations, smoking, pollution, stress, use of unsuitable hair products, chronic colds, sinusitis, and thyroid disorders.
Also, gray hairs may appear as a result of low amounts of melanin in your body.
When this happens, the marketing thought us that we should reach for the chemicals the big brands sell. Yes, I’m talking about dyeing your hair.
You know, us…we want to explore the natural route and avoid creating a toxic environment for our skin and body.
That is why today we are sharing with you a natural mixture that you can easily make with just two ingredients.
