hi there, I recently came across this site while doing research to reverse my rapidly greying hair. I am very interested in all the posts citing Blackstrap Molasses as a viable remedy. Most of the posts list copper as the primary effective element in this treatment. Today I went to the grocery store to purchase the recommended brand mentioned in the majority of posts, but the nutritional information lists the copper content as 0%. Am I missing something here? any advice or information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Today is the 7th week I've been taking 2 tbsp of Blackstrap Molasses every morning for my gray hair. I have black hair and I've had gray hair since in my 30's. And I don't see any change of my hair color from the roots. I had high hopes because I am extremely allergic to Permanent hair dye. It makes my scalp swell up & itches like crazy & I been using temp hair dye but the color fades fast. I was hoping to at least get a slight darker change of my gray. But no results here. I will keep taking it for couple of months longer. I'm not giving up that easy LOL!

BlackStrap Molassas does make your hair darker like it says it does, I am proof of that! I had just colored my hair "blond" and all of a sudden within about I'd say a few days after that, my hair is getting dark all over from the top to the bottom! It does take about 3-4 months for the BlackStrap to kick in but it does work if you are a natural Brunette! I take two tablespoons a day.

I am a man in my early forties with a lot of white hair (not even gray - it's stark white). As my hair is naturally black it really sticks-out. Now here is the thing: I have a brother who is 3 years older than me. I am the "healthy one" - always working out and watching what I eat whereas he drinks heavily and smokes a little, he has virtually no gray at all.
I have tried to work out why we have this difference and can think of two reasons:
1) We are both very tall but I am an inch taller and often have cold hands & feet. I reckon this means scalp circulation is also not as good.
2) My "healthy" diet of no alcohol was not as healthy as I thought. For years I was drinking diet sodas and my bro drinks beer by the case-load. Turns out beer has copper and a couple of other minerals and my diet sodas leech minerals from the body.
So now I have quit sodas some time back and am trying to get more copper in my diet. First off was BSM which may be very, very slowly working. A black spot of hair about the size of a fingernail has formed around my temple area.
Recently I have been taking a bit more powdered cocoa and the spot has turned into more of a streak of dark hair - seems to be working. Encouraged by this I am trying to eat more nuts and have even tried liver - it has to be the most disgusting thing ever but if it can help me get some hair color back I will eat it now and then.
I am also drinking a little beer these days. I have read that those who drink in moderation tend to live longer than those who drink nothing. Today I ordered some liquid chlorophyll and will add that to the diet.
I would love to hear the thoughts of the board. I hate having so much white hair at this age - it is the only thing that ages me. I really, really want to get more of my black hair back naturally.
I recently bought "ORGANIC BLACKSTRAP MOLASSES" plantation brand in a organic shop.. then only I found that 0% copper mentioned in it..I bought since I have got lot of grey hairs.. Now will it work for me... I am worried..do any one has an answer...
I had been taking organic unsulphured blackstrap molasses for gray hair for the last year or so. Instead, I found that it cured my borderline anemia and I could donate blood again. I take a tablespoon every day with soymilk. It is also working on my gray hair but much more slowly. I realise that my roots are not turning gray as quickly as before and I could wait longer before retouching my roots. Very pleased with the results as I had been trying other remedies like flaxseed oil and vitamin Bs without success. I am vegan so blackstrap molasses is definitely useful for vegetarians or vegans who have problems with anemia.

I am 25 years old and suffer from premature gray hair. This thing really makes me stresed and look older. On site I read that blackstrap molasses are used for reverse gray hair to normal. I want to know how long I am going to use it to see result, and if I stop using it will my hair turn again to gray? Has Blackstrap Molasses any side effect to the body? I will really appreciate your help.
With full respect Jorgo.

Hi! I started taking BSM about 4 weeks ago. I take one big tablespoon in the morning with warm water. I have 25% grey hair towards the front of my head and at 29 it makes me feel much older than my peers and makes me feel very depressed.
I don't see any change in colour as yet. Please can someone help to tell me how long it would take to show the results.

Hi, I'm 33 with a lot amount of grey hair. I have been trying for 5 months sort out this issue mixing a glass of milk with 1 tablespoon of molasses every day and didn't work. Should I mixed it with other liquid, soy milk rather than normal one or any juice??? Any feedback would be great. Thanks in advance.

I find the feedback very interesting being that I am a interested in natural products vitimins, minerals and herbs. I also have a lot of grey hair but am getting accustomed to it now, but sometimes it gets boring. I have been dying my hair for the past 20 years. I will certainly try the BMS for my hair.
To those who have used blackstrap molasses to restore their hair colour, how long did you take it to see the results? also what was the dosage that you took?
I had some grey hairs and chose to go the natural route and try Blackstrap Molasses to get my color back. Well, I took the Blackstrap Molasses concoction for about two weeks if that long. It caused my sugar levels to soar and my flawless face went crazy. My cheeks were covered in fine and large pimples and they itched! I'm still working to get my skin back to normal. I have family members that are diabetic and I think my body is sensitive to big spikes in my sugar level. Good luck to those using the Blackstrap Molasses method. It's not an option for me.

I just got a compliment today. A co-worker asked if I was coloring my hair. I told her it was the black strap molasses that I have been consuming regularily... I guess it does work!
I am 30 yrs old and I have some gray hairs. I always feel really not confident with myself around people. Previously I dye my hair but ever since I took the blackstrap molasses I stop dying to see the result. It has been 4 months already but I can still see some gray hair growing. It's just that some of the gray hair growth are more fine rather than thick like before. Is this a progress since most of the testimony I've read from other people, their gray hair grows to their natural color? and is is ok to pluck the grey hair? would it caused more gray hair to grow?
When is it the best time in the day to take organic black strap molasses for greying hair? I have just started it & I take it just before lunch, but is this the best time? Also is the dose one tablespoon a day? Can a diabetic take this remedy?
