Wheatgrass is a grass usually consumed in the form of liquid or powder. This grass is high in vitamins and nutrients and is ingested by many for its health benefits to the body. Wheatgrass has external benefits as well. It can be used to relieve an itchy scalp as well as restore shine and luster to hair. Wheatgrass juice can also keep hair from graying and restore color to gray and dull hair.

Purchase some wheatgrass from your local health food store. Look for it in the fresh produce section.

Cut the green leaves into tiny pieces and put them into a juicer. Let the leaves mix together until they become juice. Only a small amount is needed to receive the benefits.

Soak hair completely with water by rinsing it for about half a minute. Rub some wheatgrass juice on the scalp of your head.

Massage the juice into your hair and scalp gently with your fingertips. Let it sit for three minutes and rinse hair thoroughly.

Apply a deep conditioner to your hair to restore softness. Let it sit for several minutes and rinse out. You can store any unused wheatgrass juice in the refrigerator for up to seven days.


  • You may also ingest a small amount of wheatgrass juice for the same hair benefits. Wheatgrass juice is safe to use on your hair every day.
