sage, tea leaves
- To help grayness fade away again, mix 2 heaping tbsp each of dried sage and tea (either black or orange pekoe) in a heavy ceramic mixing bowl. Fill half full of boiling water, cover, then put in the oven for a couple of hours at 275F. You can also place the bowl in a large pan of boiling water on the stove top for several hours. Remove, stir well, strain. Rub a small quantity of the infusion into the roots of the hair 4-5 times a week until the gray begins to fade, then for maintenance only once or twice a week.
