Molasses forms during the third boiling process when sugar cane or beets break down to create a thick, black gooey substance. While molasses is mostly used in baking, it can also help you strengthen your hair as well as darken the color. It has also been reported to cure gray hair when taken orally every day, according to Earth Clinic. The process for coloring hair is quite simple if you know how much molasses to use and how to remove it afterwards.
Brush or comb your hair to remove all tangles.
Mix 1/4 cup of molasses with the same amount of olive oil. Use your fingers to apply the mix to all of your hair, from root to tip.
Allow the mixture to penetrate your hair for a half hour, causing the color to become darker and more rich.
Rinse the mixture from your hair thoroughly, rubbing the hair with your hands until the water runs completely clear.
Comb or brush the hair again and style as usual.
