Natural hair dye alternatives

“For most women who are natural, their hair color tends to be a bit darker. You can apply those colors but it won’t be vibrant because you don’t have any of that lightness without bleaching it. Our hair dries out after 3 days when it’s worn in its natural state, so you should be rinsing and conditioning your hair every 2-3 days. Those bold colors are going to fade out very quickly and you will have to refresh them very often,” says Amber Jani, color specialist from Hair Rules , a NYC-based salon that caters to textured tresses. 

A first-time customer, who had recently developed an allergy to PPD, called to ask whether any of our hair color products could guarantee 100% gray coverage. I gave her my usual spiel, which can be summed up in a word as “no.”

Want a natural hair rinse? Try a strong brew of black coffee…hold the cream and sugar of course!  Let the coffee steep for a longer period of time and then pour the coffee on hair or dip you hair into the coffee mixture.

All hair is different and may take longer to soak up color or maybe no time at all. Some hair grows faster while others just plug along slowly. Some colors of hair react differently to different colors. Here’s a list of herbs that work best for each hair color type.

Apply it to your dry hair and ma ke sure you cover all of it, from root to end. Cover your head with plastic wrap and leave it for 30 minutes

If your hair is not yet more than 10% gray, the quickest, easiest and most effective way to dye your hair naturally is with henna hair coloring.

The most beautiful thing we possess is our body and soul. Our body requires regular care and maintenance to keep looking healthy and beautiful. We all have to live through some ailments and other health problems from time to time. However, nature has created a remedy contained within in plants and herbs -for every health problem. Whether it's fresh produce, dried herbs, essential oils or extracts: the key to beautiful health is using pure botanical rich ingredients derived from nature.

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.

Who decides that men look distinguished with grey hair and women don't? This article just seems to validate that stereotype by saying that women "don't have the luxury" of being able to get away with grey hair. You could easily have presented natural hair color options without making assumptions about why someone would want or "need" to use color, that's an unnecessary angle.

Below are photographs of natural hair strands showing how they colour with henna, and how they intensify to darker shades after the indigo application. I'm afraid the photos don't do justice at all to the final end result colour - scroll down to the real life photos see what I mean. Also, please bear in mind that the henna used for these strand tests was mixed with part lemon juice and part water and therefore the henna colour is lighter than it would have been with a straight hot water mix.

" Thank you for such a great hair colour product and wishing you every success and many more customers. " Geraldine - December 22, 2015
