Tips for natural hair dye

It's been about a year since I have been on this wiki and I have updated some of the information I originally put in this article. I have learned A LOT of new things since I wrote this by watching professionals in salons and asking them questions. I've also done extended research and I have also asked teachers at beauty schools. Keep in mind that I am not a professional myself. I am just a kid who has a passion for hair! Happy coloring~

Dyeing your hair at home can seem intimidating, but it is actually quite simple once you know what to do. It can also save you lots of time and money. This wikiHow will show you how to dye your hair properly.

Changing your hair color can be subtle or outrageous, simply covering gray strands or adding highlights, or going blue, purple, hot pink or a combination of colors. Bleaching your hair will strip it of natural color, leaving you with hair ready to take on new color. It can be a lengthy process that takes concentration, so choose a time when you are not overtired and you can focus on getting the results you are looking for.

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.

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.

Chemicals in hair dye have been linked to a variety of very harmful effects. The use of hair dye has been linked to cancer, allergic reactions, and respiratory disorders. You also have to be careful of hair dyes marked as “natural” because they even contain hazardous chemicals such as resorcinol, ammonia or peroxide, and PPD, even if it is a reduced amount. PPD damages the DNA of human cells and often causes allergic reactions. Evidence has shown that those who use hair dye are at an increased risk of developing Hodgkin’s lymphoma, multiple myeloma, and leukemia.

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.”

These are gentler safer alternatives, which are kinder to the hair than the harsher products generally used in traditional salons.

"The first step would be to bleach the hair, and the thing about pre-bleaching hair is that it can get very damaged if it's not done correctly," says Goddard. "It's imperative to lift the hair color light enough so the pastel will actually show up. The 'Coachella' colors that have been happening need to be on light-enough hair." To minimize damage to the hair cuticle, try asking your colorist to add a bond builder, like the b3 Brazilian Bond Builder , which acts as a barrier and protects the hair during the color process. Your stylist can add it to bleach — even multiple rounds — toner, or any treatment to protect the hair cuticle as it's opened and exposed to harsh chemicals, which deplete moisture. "We want the color to stay strong — the actual hair to stay strong — so it can act like a canvas and carry the pastel in a better way," advises Goddard.
