I came across this homemade recipe for covering grey hair. Link is as below:

Z:\Files\Personal Files\Covering Grey Hair - Homemade Hair Dye Recipe.htm

Can anyone tell me where I could buy dried sage herb and rosemary herb (not the oil, but actual herb). I live in NJ, USA and my local supermarkets don't carry them. If any1 knows of an online store or something where I could buy it, plz let me know. I would like to try out the recipe in the link above.

Mountainroseherbs (dot) com has both of the herbs you need. Besides having an impressive selection of herbs, they also have clays, oils, and other stuff too. And teapots!!

Sage and rosemary are also very easy to grow in pots on your windowsill. I grow all my own herbs. It's very convenient and cost-effective. Check your local garden centre for seedlings or seeds. If you need dried herbs, you can dry fresh cuttings in a warm oven, food dehydrator or direct sunlight.

P.S. Your link doesn't work. It doesn't seem to be a full URL. I'm interested in reading the recipe. Could you post it again? Thanks.

Hi People,
I don't mean to burst anyone's balloon but I have personally tried the natural gray/grey hair coloring recipes listed. The rosemary and sage brewed together is a bit pungent while cooking and also when applied to the hair. I faithfully applied the herbal rinse daily to my hair and after about a month instead of restoring my gray's back to their natural color...I found my gray's to be actually turning green. The bottom line for me personally was this method was time consuming, costly, and it honestly didn't work at all.

My guess is not to mix the two herbs.

Unfortunately home recipes, while they might work for some, are not always proven for all and can do strange things to your hair. Always do a patch test before trying anything unproven. It will save you any heartaches.
