    Default Home-made hair mask that darkens hair

    Hey guys,

    I read somewhere that home-made hair mask with olives (black ones) can darken the hair.
    I have dark brown hair and I want it darker without color it.

    Does anyone know good recipes?

    Try mixing some molasses in with your conditioner. It's very moisturizing and adds a lot of shine and a hint of deep, rich color.

    It will not make your hair sticky at all.

    MOLASSES! What a fabulous idea. The smell would be heaven.

    It works great for me, McJag. Two parts conditioner to one part molasses.

    Use honey for blondes, redheads, and lighter browns.

    I've read that tea can also be a rinse for darkening hair...but it will definitely stain everything else too - towels etc.

    black tea will stain hair, molasses works well, cloves can also be used ... I've heard coffee will also stain hair, but I haven't tried that one.
