Coconut Oil and Lemon Juice: The Best Remedy for Gray Hair


Gray hair is usually associated with aging so most people try to do everything in their power to cover the hairs or minimize the visibility of the graying. There are other contributing factors as well; for example, exposure to chemicals, unhealthy diet, hormonal imbalance, smoking, etc.

This is why a lot of us spend small fortunes on store-bought products and dyes claiming to have the ability to solve this problem. However, most of them are ineffective and offer only short-term solutions and we end up damaging the hair instead of helping it. This is why it is safer and cleverer to turn to alternative medicine.

Homemade Mixture against Gray Hair



2 tsp of coconut oil

3 tsp of lemon juice

Preparation: Mix the ingredients well to get a homogeneous mixture.

Application: Apply the content onto the scalp by massaging it into the skin and then comb the hair so that the remedy reaches the ends; leave it on for an hour before you rinse it off with shampoo.

Repeat the procedure weekly.

Why Is This Remedy Effective?

  • The medium-chain fatty acids in coconut oil and the lauric acid have strong antimicrobial characteristics; the oil will also make the hair follicles stronger
  • Lemon juice is abundant in vitamins B and C and when mixed with coconut oil, it can strengthen the hairs and avert premature graying
