Natural vs dyed hair

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.

I've used avacado, coconut milk, and olive oil. It's a bit messy, but it really added much needed moisture to my hair.

1 avocado
1 can of coconut milk
1 tablespoon of olive oil

I usually mix everything in a blender to make it creamy, then store the remaining in the fridge.

Closures do not run temple to temple. Instead they are placed in the “horseshoe” area at the top of a weave to close off the style. (Hence the name closure)

Standard, non-organic hair dye is loaded with all sorts of questionably safe chemicals : ammonia , formaldehyde , sodium laurel sulphates and parabens , to name a few. Much of the research focuses on how the chemicals affect the salon workers who use them daily, but it's not hard to see how years of chemical abuse would leave my hair -- and that of 75 percent of American women who admit to dyeing their hair -- less shiny and soft. (Aging, it should be noted, could be a factor here, too.) The Organic Color System, on the other hand, is a natural, ammonia-free solution that promises long-lasting, vibrant results. Between 98-99 percent of the ingredients are naturally derived or organic, and the only synthetic ingredients are the pigments and stabilizers.

So word has it that blondes have more fun. But which blondes are actually hotter? Is it the blondes that are natural or the women of color that dye their hair blonde? We gathered some pics of both and decided to compare. Let’s take a look!

The acid in lemons works as a natural bleach that is intensified and accelerated by exposing the treated hair to UV rays from sunlight. So after application, expose your hair to natural sunlight for around 30 to 45 minutes (preferably longer) before taking a shower.

I use this brand . It comes in 12 colors including red , auburn , and light brown . I follow the simple directions on the box. My hair is naturally dark brown. Since henna does not lighten hair, if I use one of the browns, it does not change the color of my hair much. If I use one of the reds, it does give my hair a red undertone (how red depends on the shade I use). I use henna mostly for the deep conditioning properties as opposed to the hair color.

Commercial hair dyes can be expensive, not to mention that they are full of chemicals and irritants. Many people have allergies to over-the-counter and professional hair dyes. However, you can use natural products such as coffee, teas, fruits, and vegetables to color your hair. Keep in mind that these methods are semi-permanent and will wash out over time. This article contains tips on how to dye hair with multiple all natural substances.
