Out of stock - In-Stock Notification

Contains: Nettle Horsetail Shavegrass Oatstraw Henna

Short Description:

The herbal properties of this treatment penetrate only the broken parts of the hair shafts, leaving damaged hair looking healthy and full. The clear silicon creates a brilliant shine and nettle nourishes your scalp. This treatment brings out lovely highlights but does not cover gray hair. The Dark and Red mixtures contain nettle, oatstraw, henna, and horsetail/shavegrass. Strawberry Blonde contains henna, chamomile, nettle, oatstraw, and horsetail/shavegrass. Blonde contains chamomile, nettle, oatstraw, and horsetail/shavegrass.

Here is an herbal hair treatment to be applied directly to your dark hair.

The herbal properties penetrate only the broken part of the hair shafts, leaving damaged hair looking full, shiny, and healthy. The more damaged the hair, the more startling the results.

This treatment does not cover gray or change hair color. Instead, the high silicon content in the Horsetail fills in the damaged strands, taking with it the subtle colors found in other herbs. The Nettle nourishes your scalp, and leaves the hair looking and feeling full and rich. When light hits your hair, the clear silicon, with just a touch of natural earth colors causes a brilliant shine.

This hair treatment is messy. It almost looks and smells like cow slobber when it is on your hair. My girls call it Magic Slime because it is green and slimy. Oh, but it is worth it!

I’d suggest you do this when you know you will not be having company, because the odor lingers until shampooed. You might wait until your husband is not around either. He will enjoy the results much better if he doesn’t have to look at or smell the process.

A woman with medium length, medium thickness hair, will need to use 1/4 cup of the herb mix. Some with short, thin hair will only need 1 or 2 tablespoons. Because the short hair will need less of the mix, it will also need less liquid added to it. I will give you a basic recipe for 1/2 cup, which is what is needed for long, full hair. If you require more or less, you will need to adjust the amount of ingredients accordingly.


  • 3/4 cup of lemon or vinegar (use lemon for lighter highlights, or vinegar for red/darker highlights)
  • 1/2 cup of Beautiful Hair Treatment - Dark
  • 2 beaten eggs
  • 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil or mayonnaise (optional)


In a small pot, mix the lemon or vinegar with the Beautiful Hair - Dark herbal mix. Heat the mixture on the stove for about 5 minutes (don’t let it boil).

Let the mixture cool for about 5 minutes, and mix in the 2 beaten eggs. For those of you with dry hair, add the 2 tablespoons of olive oil or mayonnaise. A bit of Lavender or Rosemary ground into powder can also be added to the treatment at this time to give it a faint, pleasant scent.

Apply the treatment to your hair, ensuring you cover the most damaged parts. Keep the mixture warm by placing a plastic bag over your hair, and wrapping a warm, damp towel around your head.

Leave it on for 45 minutes or so (the longer the better). As the towel cools, you’ll want to warm it up again to get the most out of the treatment.

Without shampooing, rinse your hair, and air dry. Use shampoo the following day. However, if you added the oil or mayonnaise, you may want to shampoo before bedtime to avoid getting the oil on your bedding.

With proper care, this treatment will last a few months.

LOVE - LOVE Beautiful Hair - Dark
by Kathy on Feb 13, 2015

I bought this about a month and a 1/2 ago. I use to have to die my hair about every 6 weeks, and even though it was gentler one, it was just stripping my hair, so it ended up getting really dried on the ends. Plus it never really covered the gray really well. It had been about 8 months since I colored and of course it was really getting all gray. I usually have dark brown hair. So I tried the Beautiful Hair Dark, and what a difference. It covered the gray completely turning it to a dark blonde. Now my hair is back to dark brown and dark blonde. It looks like I paid a hair dresser to add blonde highlights. This is really a great product. Matter of fact I just ordered 2 more bags...

Works wonders!
by Suzanne on Dec 17, 2014

I love this remedy! I have used it now for about 8 years. I don't know why but, the henna in this concoction actually grabs my gray. I know it is said that it doesn't but it does for mine. Also, if you have a sauna, which I do, jump in the sauna and let your scalp soak up the heat with slobber in your hair. It works so much better! 👍

Definitely Beautiful Hair
by Sarah on Jun 11, 2014

Wow, I definitely have beautiful hair! I have medium length, fairly fine, ash-colored hair. I used apple cider vinegar plus olive oil, and I ended up with some lovely caramel highlights. I have to say, the stuff smells. I smelled like a pasture and even after washing my hair 3 times since applying it, I still smell a bit cow-like. It goes away when my hair is dry, but even being out in the rain brings it back. It is TOTALLY worth it though. I haven't been able to get my hair cut in a while, my ends were very dry and brittle. It has brought my hair back to life and I think it may have made it longer! Like it's fertilizer for my scalp lol. It's incredibly shiny and I'm fairly certain my hair has never looked so healthy before. I've had a few people tell me how long it looks since applying it. For my length and texture, I don't think I needed 3/4 cup, so I'll adjust that next time. I'm telling all my friends!

what kind of vinegar
by Amnada on Mar 14, 2014

Hi, Just wondering what kind of vinegar to use wtih this product? ACV or white?? Thanks!

    Re: what kind of vinegar
    by Bulk Herb Store on Mar 17, 2014

    It would be best to use Apple Cider Vinegar. Thanks!

Rapunzel and Happy Hair
by Carrie on Feb 25, 2014

I am interested in trying this product. Can it be used on hair that has already been chemically treated with color? Also, where can I find the articles for Rapunzel Hair and Happy Hair?

    Re: Rapunzel and Happy Hair
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 25, 2014

    Our hair treatments can be used on color treated hair, however, if you have highlights or even gray hair, it will very possibly change the gray to a golden or orange and intensify the highlights or change the color of them if using a treatment with henna in it as color treated hair are more absorbent than untreated hair. I would recommend testing it on a small section of hair first to make sure it doesn't turn any funky color! You can find the articles you are looking for by clicking on our "Articles" page and they can be found in alphabetical order. Thank you!

by Emerald on Feb 6, 2014

About how many 1/4 cup treatments does a .5 pound contain? Thanks!

    Re: Quantity?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Feb 12, 2014

    Hello, we do not measure it exactly by cup measurements, but I would think it has about 4-5. Thanks!

How to?
by Melisa on Jan 13, 2014


Would you recommend applying the treatment to clean dry hair or to "dirty" day-after wash hair? I wonder which would absorb the treatment best.

    Re: How to?
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 13, 2014

    For optimal results I would recommend washing your hair as normal and then doing a baking soda rinse. Then the next day do the Beautiful Hair treatment. Enjoy!

Thinning Hair

You mentioned the Rapunzel Hair mix in the Articles, which article. I'm interested in trying this.
Thank you

    Hello, we have 2 articles that are helpful for any healthy hair questions. :) The first is 'Rapunzel Hair' and the second 'Happy Hair at Last!'. Check them out and enjoy!

by Beth on Jan 1, 2014

You mention that with proper care the treatment will last several months. What is proper care?

Thank you!

    Re: care
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jan 2, 2014

    Proper care is as little blow drying,
    straightening and using harsh chemicals on your hair as possible. Thanks!

Amazing results
by Carla on Oct 23, 2013

I had purchased Beautiful Hair-Dark quite some time ago possibly a year ago. Due to my busy life, I had never used it. I have very thin, short, dry hair and it is graying quite rapidly. The last few weeks my hair has felt so dry and I decided to try this treatment. After rinsing it out, my hair looked different but I wanted to wait till it dried before I made a judgment. When it dried I had no gray hair. Where it had been gray it was more golden. I have dark brown hair so it looks like I have blonde highlights instead of salt and pepper hair. I had to go reread the instructions, "This treatment does not cover gray or change hair color." For me it changed my gray to golden and made the brown darker. Needless to say I will be continuing the use of this. It took at least 5 years off my looks, with out all of the chemicals. One for the record I guess.


thinning hair
by Kari on Sep 26, 2013

Hi, I am wondering if this product will help with thinning hair. I have always lost a bit of hair after having a baby. My hair used to be so thick. It never seems to recover after the amount lost after having a baby. I just had my 5th baby 5 months ago and my hair is still falling out by the handfuls and I haven't seen any more new growth yet. Looking for something that might help. Thanks! :-)

    Re: thinning hair
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 27, 2013

    Yes, It can help feed your scalp as well as stimulate growth. Since it sounds like you're having so much trouble with losing hair, I would look into the Rapunzel Hair mix. You can find it in our Articles. Thanks!

African American Hair
by Marlene on Sep 14, 2013

I was wondering if this is good for african american hair & is there anything different we have to do 4 this to work in our hair??

    Re: African American Hair
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 17, 2013

    Yes, you can use this on African American hair also! Thanks!

Dark Hair
by Jessica on Sep 10, 2013

I just did my first treatment, but I was wondering, why do you not wet your hair down first?

    Re: Dark Hair
    by Bulk Herb Store on Sep 12, 2013

    When your hair is dry, it is able to soak up the nutrition of the treatment better than if your hair is wet. Thanks!

Weekly Treatment
by Great Product! on Jun 23, 2013

I just wanted to share my highest compliments for this product! I have curly/kinky hair and I have applied this product as a weekly conditioning treatment. The bonus from us is it hides my greys rather well. I start by mixing this product with farm fresh cream, shea butter and coconut oil. In my case this product has been so mild that I can leave the mixture on for the better part of a day. I have noticed my hair to be softer, less frizzy, more manageable, and a beautiful reddish brown!
My advice, apply this product mixture with a salon highlight brush for best coverage!

damaged hair
by Beth on Jun 4, 2013

I have almost waist length hair. My hair has always been so frizzy and kind of wavy ish. For the past couple of years I used baking soda to wash my hair. I now realize this damaged my hair and I think made it lighter ( I used to have very dark brown hair). My hair has always had natural high lights.

Is there any hope this product would repair my hair? Also how many uses would I get out of this product for my length of hair? Thanks!

    Re: damaged hair
    by Bulk Herb Store on Jun 5, 2013

    It will definitely help with the damage, you can also take the nettle, oatstraw and horsetail internally to help get your hair healthy. You should be able to get at-least 3 treatments out of 1/2 lb. if you use 1/2 cup per treatment.

Beautiful Hair dark treatment
by Rebecca on Mar 17, 2013

I love using this product! It has made my hair shiny, smooth, my curls even more bouncy, and it feels healthy. So I cannot sing enough praises for this product. Thank you Bulk herb store for the solution as well to my dry scalp, this has tamed that too.

I used Avocado instead of eggs.

Smells like honey
by Alexis on Jun 11, 2012

I LOVE your beautiful hair mix for dark hair!! The other day I used it and afterwards my husband was hugging me and said, "mmmm! You smell like honey!!" I just smiled and thanked him. I thought you might enjoy his point of view on it! :-)

Thanks so much!
by Danielle A. on May 17, 2011

Hello! I ordered the Beautiful Hair Dark and I must admit that I was a bit skeptical. I have wavy/frizzy hair and live in humid South Louisiana, so my hair has never been easily "tamed". This is a great product! My hair was so shiny and soft! I am growing my hair long so it has been difficult to keep these ends from lookin' rough, but the Beautiful Hair smoothed them out nicely... I will be a repeat customer on this one.

by Diane on Jul 28, 2009

I bought some of your Beautiful Hair treatment quite a while back but was hesitant to use it with the current recipe supplied because of the eggs. My hair is dredlocked, and I was fearful of the egg "cooking" in my hair with the rinse. If that were to happen, there would be no way to remove that from my locs! Catastrophe! Anyway, instead of eggs, I use virgin coconut oil with a bit of almond oil. I put the BHT in several tablespoons of almond oil, whip that up, then whip in my VCO, which is a great substitute for the eggs/protein! I hope this information is helpful to those with kinky/coily hair.

Beautiful Hair - Dark
by Tania from Quebec on Jun 9, 2008

I received my order on Friday so Saturday afternoon I tried the Beautiful Hair Dark treatment. At first I had my doubts especially when I started slapping on the green goo... I left the treatment on for 1hr 30 mins, following the instructions to a T on the label... After rinsing out the treatment I let my hair dry naturally for the rest of the day... and before bed I washed them... My hair is so smooth and shiny and there are a lot more highlights now, this is a keeper. Thank you!

Perm damage reversed!!! - Beautiful Hair
by Amy on Mar 3, 2008

I am so pleased with your Beautiful Hair- Dark treatment! Recently, I decided to try getting a perm... The first time my hair was so healthy that the perm didn't take. After the second perm, my hair was dry, brittle, and I was getting a lot of split ends... Anyways, I had wanted to try Beautiful Hair for a long time, and decided to see what it could do for me. I am very happy with the results! Since using the treatment my hair isn't breaking as much, is softer, and the color from the herbs filled in the minor bleaching that resulted from the chemicals. I am planning on doing another Beautiful Hair treatment soon... Thanks a lot!

Beeeautiful Hair - Dark
by Andrea on Jan 6, 2008

This product is wonderful!!! I bought it for my mom... My mom grew up on a farm and she said it really does look like cow slobber! :-) However, it was not nearly as bad as I expected it to be. I thought it smelled pretty good--even my husband wasn't grossed out with it! Anyways, I am now a firm believer in Beautiful Hair--Dark. After my mom and I washed our hair the next morning--the results were amazing--full, soft, and shiny hair! It's the hair I've always dreamt of having! Thank you so much!!

Please, take a moment and comment on this product.
