Natural hair dyed tips

The one thing you need to know about natural hair is that the kinkier (tightly coiled) it is, the drier it will be in many cases .

Don't worry about the slight vinegar smell you will notice after rinsing. It will disappear completely as your hair dries.

Make your own healthy after-shampoo hair rinse by mixing 1/3 of a cup (75 ml) of ACV into a quart (1 liter) of water. You can then store this mixture in a plastic bottle and keep it in the shower for ready use.

If you would like to prepare a smaller batch of this vinegar hair rinse recipe to experiment with, try mixing 1 tablespoon (15 ml) of apple cider vinegar into 1 cup (250 ml) of warm filtered tap water.

Apply the vinegar rinse after shampooing and then rinse it all out, or for extra conditioning, you can leave the rinse on your hair. This natural hair care product can be used once or twice a week or more often as needed.


However, if you do choose to take the route of dying your hair let’s say a light blonde color consult a professional.  The at home kits are tempting because they are cheap and quickly done, but when you are making such a major change you definitely want a pro to take on this job. Not only does this help protect your hair from damage but they can get the hair color to complement your skin tone better by mixing the colors to find the right blend for you.

A strand test is com­pul­so­ry for any colourist worth their salt. This is a test on your hair — usu­al­ly snip­ping a few strands and test­ing them in thedye/bleach. This hair is test­ed to see the colour result that can be achieved and more impor­tant­ly if the hair is sus­cep­ti­ble to seri­ous dam­age. Nor­mal­lythe colourist will try to see how much force is need­ed to snap the hair or if the hair dis­in­te­grates due to bleach or high pH (which is not uncom­mon if the­hair is dam­aged or has been pre­vi­ous­ly coloured).

Hair growth begins inside the hair follicle . The only "living" portion of the hair is found in the follicle. The hair that is visible is the hair shaft, which exhibits no biochemical activity and is considered "dead". The base of a hair's root (the "bulb") contains the cells that produce the hair shaft. [8] Other structures of the hair follicle include the oil producing sebaceous gland which lubricates the hair and the arrector pili muscles, which are responsible for causing hairs to stand up. In humans with little body hair, the effect results in goose bumps .

These are natural colors and as such will create natural hues on your hair. They will not create artificial colors like hot pink, completely platinum blonde, or jet black (ok, so that isn’t a fake color, I just haven’t figured out how to do it…) The blonde/light recipes will actually permanently lighten hair since they naturally bleach it but the red and dark hues will leave a temporary tint for a few weeks (depending on how often you wash it). The sun will help set all the hues.

Eight months ago I decided to try a radical experiment in  natural hair care: I ditched the shampoo . It was a bit like jumping off a cliff (and I’m so  not  a fan of heights) but I decided that there was nothing to lose, so I jumped. And four months later as I look back, I realize that it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made. Four months in to No Shampoo (often called “No-Poo” on the web) and my hair is so healthy that I have decided to make my experiment permanent: I will never go back to shampoo.

How to Dye Your Hair Brown After It Has Been Dyed Black. Did you dye your hair black but you don't like it as much as you thought? Have you had your hair ...

Did you dye your hair black but you don't like it as much as you thought? Have you had your hair black for awhile now but want to dye it brown? Unfortunately, you can not simply dye your hair from black to brown without removing or lightening the color first. Once you remove the color, you can pick the shade of brown you want and dye it. Whether you just dyed you hair or have been dying it for a long time, there are some methods you can try in order to get your hair from black to brown.

Still looking for a really good deep conditioner, but until then I will just keep adding olive oil and honey to Herbal Essence.... I am going to go revisit Nikki's list right now!!!

Factors affecting the colour result of a natural hair dye
Different hair structure and chemistry such as acidity levels in your hair effect the resulting colour.  For example some peoples hair goes coppery more easily than others. So one particular colour is not the same on everyone.
 
Because natural hair dyes are semi-transparent the colour you have underneath is going a show through to some extent. For example if your hair is bright red and you apply a brown colour on top of it - some of the red is still going to show through on the first application. Or if your hair is white or blonde and you put a dark colour on top of it may not immediately go dark. If you have stripes of grey the grey may still be a lighter colour. (Also grey hair has a unique structure which renders the colour differently to your none grey hair). Colouring your hair 2 or 3 times allowing at least 12 hours between each application will strengthen the colour.

If you've never used natural hair care products before, don't be afraid of the ingredients lists in these concoctions; just because they contain oils and natural butters doesn't mean that they will make your hair oily or weigh it down; in fact natural oils can be good for the health of the scalp, and actually prevent dry or oily scalps and fend off dandruff.
