1. Using Black Tea
Black tea is one of the best natural dyes available in the market. This dye gives a great black tone to your white hair and its preparation is also very simple.
- Take 2 tablespoons of black tea and boil them in the water.
- When the leaves rinse the color, turn off the stove and leave the mixture to cool down at room temperature.
- Filter the water to remove leaves and apply it softly to your beard.
- Leave it for at least an hour and then wash it with cold water.
2. Using Back Organic Sesame Seeds
Preparing hair dye from Sesame seeds to color white hair into black is not a new idea. In India, people have been using these seeds for centuries to treat their white hair.
The solution of these seeds also helps in reducing hair loss.
- Take a bowl, fill it with water, and add some Sesame seeds to it. Wait until the seeds soak in water and turn soft.
- With the help of a food processor, mash the seeds completely and turn them into a paste.
- Apply the paste to your white beard and gently rub it for five minutes.
- Leave it on for an hour and then wash it with water.
3. Using Henna
Henna is a dye prepared from the plant Lawsonia inermis, also known as the henna tree, the mignonette tree, and the Egyptian privet.
This dye is very popular in the east and has been in use for centuries for dying purposes. But henna gives us an orange color. To turn this orange color into black naturally, we’ll need black tea, coconut oil, vinegar, curd, shikakai or lemon juice mixed in an iron bowl.
Here’s what we recommend:
Brew some black tea and then add some egg yolk and lemon juice to it. You can also add instant coffee powder to the mixture for better results.
Here’s another method:
- Take 1 cup of henna, 1 tablespoon of shikakai, 1 tablespoon of lemon juice, half a tablespoon of coconut oil, 2 tablespoons of curd, and vinegar and mix them well in a bowl and compress them to make a paste.
- Remember to use an iron bowl because an oxidation reaction takes place in the bowl that gives the mixture its black color.
- Apply it across your hair completely.
