Grey hair can come with age, stress, or just because of our genes. But whatever the reason, most of us just don't like seeing those first few grays…or having a head full of it. Even though societal norms have changed and grey hair is definitely becoming acceptable and even called “distinguished”, most women still don't feel comfortable rocking a head of grey hair. If you're one of those women, there are plenty of ways to cover up grays such as dying your hair, but all those chemicals can damage the hair by breaking it. Thankfully, there are a few different NATURAL ways to cover up grey hair, but this one is our favorite! Today we'll show you how to use sage for grey hair. That's right – sage!

  1. Start off by boiling 2 cups of water.
  2. Add 1/2 cup of dried sage leaves.
  3. Steep for 2 hours and strain the sage leaves.
  4. Pour the steeped tea onto hair and let sit for half an hour.
  5. Rinse out and repeat daily until hair has darkened and grays are no longer visible.
