Do you have a friends and family that would benefit from your beauty and health regime? Or maybe you don't ever want to run empty on your favorite products. This is one way to solve this and still save big bucks.

When temperatures begin to rise, I feel a pang of envy when seeing my blond-haired, beach-waved friends. It feels like chic braids are so much more flattering

A late night left alone with some sharp scissors, and constant peer pressure from a college roommate to put my scissors where my mouth was. My motto during the college years…”You can never wear too much lipstick or use too many styling products.” (Because boy, did that new spike ever need some styling products.)

Not many people know that apart from adding nutrition to your hair, regular oil treatments can make them straight and sleek. Mix coconut oil with olive oil. You can also replace olive oil with almond oil after a few days. Massage this mixture on the scalp and the hair. Cover the hair with a hot towel. Leave it for at least 45 minutes. Then wash with a shampoo.

Dying your hair a lighter color does not require at trip to the salon. Several household staples contain ingredients that can lighten hair, especially if used with sunlight. You can find out how to lighten hair naturally using 1 of these methods.

Remember that all colors are made from three Primary Colors : Blue, Red, and Yellow. Equal portions of blue, red, and yellow will create a neutral color. Think of it as a math equation: Blue+Red=Violet, Violet+Yellow=? (look at the color wheel chart and apply it to the formula). So, what does it equal? A neutral color because yellow is right across violet on the color chart. Secondary Colors are colors that are made when you mix equal parts of primary colors. Blue+Red=Violet, Red+Yellow=Orange, and Yellow+Blue=Green. Colors that are right across from each other on the color wheel signify which colors cancel out each other. These are called Complementary Colors . Green cancels red, blue cancels orange, purple cancels yellow, etc. This color wheel chart is very helpful when making coloring mistakes.

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.

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.

If you're looking for a natural way to lighten your hair without nasty chemicals or expensive trips to the salon, then you can lighten your hair with something you probably have in your kitchen: lemon juice. Lemon juice will lighten your hair gradually; even when your roots grow out, they will just add depth to the new color instead of looking unnatural. And if you want to try dying your kids' hair, a natural ingredient like lemon juice is the way to go.

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.

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.

Although there are a few especially potent exceptions (such as henna and walnut hulls, both of which I’ll discuss later), most herbal dyes act progressively, that is, they should be used repetitively over a period of time until the desired shade is achieved. Furthermore, I don’t know of any herb that'll actually serve as a bleach, but there are plant-based colorants that will highlight, darken, lighten or cover the gray in your hair.
