Recently, I noticed about 5 strand of hair that has a white tip but black roots. Thats after 6 months of taking BSM daily, vitamin D3 etc.
I have been taking BSM for close to a year. I use it as my sugar, a spoon in my coffee, in oatmeal. As a sweetener in most things I would use sugar in. My hair is very fair and to be honest, I'm not sure because I break down and use color every once in a while. But I do think it has toned down the grey. Stays a dark blond with sunny highlights.I hope for a bit more dark as time goes by. I still think it is very good for me to have stopped the sugar.
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 have noticed some improvement too after about 6 months of taking a multivitamin containing huge amounts of B vit group. Three month into it, I also added BSM after reading positive feedbacks on this website. Once or twice a day, BSM taken with milk and brewers yeast. So, yes, I added more vit B in the form of brewers yeast. Now I can see auburn highlights so clearly around my face (on the temples and just above my forehead). My natural colour is ash blond and these auburn highlights look quite different from my natural colour but it is still better than having these patches grey. My grey strands, however, are still there on the rest of my head. I found a few strands with brown roots but the white rest. So it is definitely helping but slowly. I have recently added black sesame seeds (like 10 days ago). One table spoon a day. One chinese doctor advised me taking them as in China these are known to promote black and healthy hair.
I moved to China in the age of 24 coz of work requirements, before that I had absolutely no issues with my hair, in fact they were great. By 26 my eating habbits were totally changed and I wasnt eating home cooked food and religious factors stopped me from various foods. At that time I noticed few grey/white hair appearing in the beard and head. They were few so I didnt care much but when I was 27, I started seeing a lot of them.. i believe it was a little early for me as I had no genetical problems for hair in my family.. I did a little research on google and tried using coconut oil/vaselene/medicated shampoo and almost everything but I realized that its only helping in a minor shine and conditioning for a temporary time and hair grows from inside out not outside in.. so it wasnt helping much and didnt convince me.. then i read about Blackstrap molasses on the web.. I tried to find it but finally I had to go to HongKong to get it. I have been using it for almost 3 months now regularly and by the way its not unsulphered.. its organic (pure blackstrap molasses).. in the first month..nothing happened, 2nd month.. some white hair started falling..3rd month.. I started seeing white and weak hair falling down regularly and some white hair r getting brown back to its original color only from the tip not from the roots..the pure white hair are also catching brown color very slowly.. my beard is still unchanged coz i think hair is very thick there and i shave almost everyday..so after 3 months there are some results finally.. lets say out of 30% white hair i am left with 22% (not a great achievement anyway)... I never used hair color.. I would just say that if you plan to use BSM then be patient.. results are definite but u have to wait for a long time.. I think after 6 months I will start getting it back more quickly..i m not sure about beared but lets see..the other effects of BSM is that i have gained weight a little..but there is another thing i noticed.. I havent even caught cold from the time i started using BSM.. I m catching no flu..although i travelled to cold places in different countries..i interact with sick ppl too sometimes..but i think its coz of BSM..and also i avoid restaurants.. i prefer eating at my apartment.. i try to keep balance in diet..meat/veg/fruits/milk..I include them everyday.. i dont use any special shampoo now.. i just use a herbal one.. mild shampoo without much chemicals..
its worth trying..good luck!
anyone has same results especially for beard.. plz share [email protected]
Last year at 50-yrs old I began seeing silver hair and wanted to nip it in the bud, and found this site on gray hair. The benefits of B/S Molasses(BSM) purchased at a health food grocery store has been that my new hair growth is my natural color. I began taking BSM January of '09 and a "warbonnet" of 2" of natural black hair is quite visable as of July '09. I intend to keep faithfully using this habit.
At first I experimented with coffee then switch to 3/4 cup of filtered water microwaved (hot enough to melt the molasses), 1 Tbl BSM, an allspice mixture (cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg) measured to taste, and 1/4 cup Vanilla Soy Milk. [all measurements should be adjusted to drinking container size] I add the BSM & spices together in the hot water to dissolve then add the soy milk to cool down to drink, and to me this taste like pumpkin pie. As to the allspice measurements I premix together in a spice jar and add according to taste. In the beginning I sprinked to get the right flavoring and viola! found it. During the cold months I wanted more flavoring and as a warm drink, now that it's warm using less flavoring for an iced drink. This is a versatile receipe limited only to your imagination -- enjoy.
