This natural hair rinse will help to darken and cover your gray hair. This rinse is gentle enough to be used on any hair, including those with sensitive scalps; use as often as necessary.

Bring the water to a boil, then remove from the heat.

Pour in the rest of the ingredients, and put a lid over the pot.

Allow the mixture to steep for about two hours.

Pour the mixture into a pitcher (use one that can be thrown away). You could also use a small bucket, or anything large enough to hold the mixture, but easy to pour from.

Consider getting help doing this, since the mixture can stain if not handled carefully.

Pour the mixture through the hair over a sink or leaning over the tub.

Using a pair of disposable gloves, massage the mixture into your hair.

Wait 15 minutes, then rinse it out with cool water until the water runs completely clear.
