The Little-Known Spice to Delay Grey Hairs
In this nutrition bite, we reveal a simple spice with an impressive superpower; the ability to help reduce grey hairs!
No matter what hair color you have, we can all agree that the best color for you is the one that makes you feel your best!
Many people are happy rocking a silvery mane, while others would rather restore the color they called “natural” before the grey. Both choices are jussst fine!
If you would rather keep your crowning glory away from the grey side, this little-known spice could be all you need. The bonus is it helps to lighten scars AND improve digestion as well. (Nature’s just magical, isn’t it?)
What hair-loving spice is this?
Ajwain is a pungent little Indian herb. The fruits of the Ajwain plant, called Carom seeds because they look like tiny seeds, are a spice commonly used in Indian medicine and cooking.
Many say Ajwain seeds taste like an earthier and mintier version of thyme. They contain a surprising amount of protein and are a good source of fiber.
What we’re really interested in is this spice’s ability to minimize premature greying hair.
These tiny nutritional powerhouses help strengthen cells and can help with hair loss and slow the growth of grey hair.
Here are a few of our favorite methods of using this precious spice.
5 Ways To Use Ajwain To Benefit Your Hair Health
1. Drink It As A Tea: Boil a generous pinch of Ajwain seeds in water and let them steep for at least 5 minutes. Drink this daily until your grey hairs improve.
2. Drink It As An Infusion: Mix two tablespoons of Ajwain seeds in a cup of water and leave overnight to soak and drink it the next day.
3. Use It As A Hair Wash: Boil Ajwain seeds as you would a tea. Once cooled overnight, use it as a daily hair rinse in the bath.
4. Spray It On As A Leave-In Treatment: Again, boil Ajwain seeds in water and let them cool overnight. Strain and add to a spray bottle and spritz onto clean, dry hair as a leave-in treatment.
5. Massage It In As A Hair Oil: Boil coconut oil, a small onion bulb (yes, you read that right) and Ajwain seeds together. Once cooled and strained, massage this mixture into your hair and scalp. You can leave this on for at least one hour before rinsing off up to twice a week.
The active compounds in Ajwain seeds are what help this spice work its magic on hair. It acts as an antimicrobial which keeps hair follicles clear, decreases hair loss, and increases blood circulation and nutrient absorption, all of which make for stronger and healthier hair!  AND this all helps with dandruff, too. Move over chemical-filled shampoos!
Whichever way you use Ajwain seeds, know that like with any hair care product (and most things in life, honestly), consistency is key to seeing results.
