Replace chemical hair dye with natural polish

  8 April 2024 05:00 - Gray hair is a sign of aging that not only occurs in elderly people, but also those in their 20s. The cause does not only come from aging, but arises from stress, genetic factors, lifestyle and certain medical conditions.

Human hair gets its color from a pigment called melanin. Melanin consists of two types, namely eumelanin (gives dark color) and pheomelanin (gives light color).

When a person enters a certain age, usually around their 30s or 40s, melanin production by melanocytes begins to decline. This condition causes hair color to change from black to gray or white. This happens because melanin is no longer produced in sufficient quantities to provide hair color. As a result, hair begins to lose its natural color and appears gray .

Providing a quite disturbing appearance, it's no wonder that a number of people are looking for ways to get rid of gray hair. Usually they choose to use polish products sold on the market. Using polish products can cover gray hair, but using them too often can make your hair dry, break easily and become damaged quickly.

Instead, you can use polish made from natural ingredients . Like what beauty vlogger @deebasbeautyremedie did. In uploading videos on his YouTube channel, he uses black coffee powder and corn flour. Both ingredients have benefits for removing gray hair.

Reporting from, Sunday (7/4) this natural ingredient contains caffeine which can stimulate hair follicles and increase blood circulation to the scalp. The caffeine content is believed to help in healthy hair growth.

The nutritional components in coffee, such as antioxidants and B vitamins, can help strengthen hair roots and prevent hair loss. The antioxidants in black coffee can protect hair from free radicals and other environmental factors. So antioxidants can indirectly prevent the appearance of gray hair.

Meanwhile, corn flour has the property of absorbing excess oil on the scalp. This prevents an imbalance in oil production which can cause hair problems such as dandruff. Not only that, corn flour also has soothing properties so it is claimed to reduce irritation on the scalp.
