6 Natural Ways To Dye Your Hair Without Chemicals

https://www.rodalesorganiclife.com/home/6-natural-ways-to-dye-your-hair-...

Whether you’re trying to cover up grays or just looking for a change, coloring your hair can make you feel like a brand new you. But it’s hard to be stoked after reading the long list of suspicious ingredients in synthetic hair dye. According to the National Cancer Institute, there are more than 5,000 different chemicals used in hair dye products, many of which are known carcinogens (though cancer has yet to be directly linked to hair dye in studies). Luckily, there are plenty of completely natural, nontoxic ways to update your look. Click through the slideshow to see some of your options.

Go From Dirty To Golden Blonde

Honey naturally contains hydrogen peroxide, a natural bleaching agent, and cinnamon has the ability to turn hair golden. (You can also try this concoction if you want reddish highlights in your brown or black hair.) Most recipes call for equal parts cinnamon and honey, plus another part of either conditioner or olive oil. Mix it all together, massage into your hair, and let it sit for about an hour before rinsing. As with other natural hair dyes, you may need to do it several times to get the results you want.

Go From Light Brown To Dark Brunette

Black walnut hulls stain just about everything they come in contact with, so they’ll give you a more permanent dye job than most other natural ingredients. Start by crushing walnuts (or you can buy black walnut hull powder), and boil the hulls in a pot of water for at least 30 minutes to make a super-dark walnut tea. After it cools, let your hair soak in the dye for up to 20 minutes, depending on the shade you’re going for. Be sure not to rub it into your scalp too much (you can coat your hairline with coconut oil to protect against accidental staining).

Go From Solid Brunette To Blonde Highlights

Chamomile tea is your go-to ingredient for achieving golden highlights. You can brew the tea and then rinse your hair with it after a homemade shampoo. You should pour the tea over your hair several times (catching it in a bowl or basin so you can reuse it), and then let it soak into your hair for at least an hour before rinsing with clean water. For an easier, more gradual method, you can also try making your own chamomile deep conditioner the way DIY blogger Rebecca Kelsey Sampson does with moisturizing ingredients like honey and olive oil. She says you’ll start to see results in about three weeks if you use it several times each week.

Go From Any Shade To Red

Henna will give you shades ranging from strawberry blonde to dark auburn, depending on your natural hair color and how many times you apply it. You can easily buy henna powder (which comes from the henna plant) online. The color will last for a couple of months before you need to reapply, similar to most commercial hair dyes. Mix your henna powder with water several hours in advance to let the dye activate. After that, the process is similar to how you would use drugstore dye—apply to hair using rubber gloves, cover with a shower cap, let it sit, and rinse.

 

Dye Techniques

  1. Rinse hair and leave it moist.
  2. Prepare the herbal hair dye by mixing the dye powder with 4 parts of warm water, i.e 50 gm sachet to mix with about 200 cc of warm water.
  3. Stir the mixture until it forms a easily applicable paste (not too thick as to make it difficult to apply or too watery that it starts streaming down the face!!)
  4. Massage the paste into the root of the hair and also apply it to the whole length of the hair (by massaging it into the root we are also nourishing the hair as the herbs are beneficial to the hair follicles.)
  5. When the hair is fully covered with the paste, put on the shower cap. This is to ensure that the moisture due to evaporation from the scalp are trapped, thus enhancing the dye efficiency.
  6. After a minimum of 1 hour preferably 2 or 3 hours, rinse the dyed hair
  7. If you do not mind the "green" smell of the herbs, rinse without shampooing but if you must use only mild shampoo.
  8. The hair will look great and peaks after 24 to 48 hours.
