Natural Hair Dye Ingredients
Since avoiding harsh chemicals is an obvious choice for most people wanting to pursue a more natural way of life...it only follows that conventional hair dyes must go. Just think about how bad they smell and how they burn your eyes and nose. Think about what is happening on cellular level once the chemicals are absorbed into your skin. No thanks! There are some natural ingredients and products that help you achieve a new color or hide gray, as well. We have provided a list below:
Cranberry Juice - tints hair a reddish color.
Black Henna - This is for black hair. It is a mixture of indigo blue dye and brown henna...it mixes up to create black.
Lemon juice and chamomile tea gives natural highlights to blondes and light-haired brunettes.
Cinnamon can brighten red hair
Tea - brown color
Coffee - brown color
Beets - red color
Some other Possibilities:
Most natural health care experts agree that going without hair dye altogether is the safest route. Hair color professionals should wear heavy plastic gloves and a mask to protect against fumes, and should schedule their color work with lots of breaks between applications to limit exposure. Consumers, when possible, should shop around for less toxic, all-natural coloring agents. Many companies like, Avalon Organics, Aubrey Organics, Dessert Essence Organics, Jason Natural Products and Simply Organic make all-natural hair colorings; other popular brands include EcoColors, Naturtint, and Clairol’s Castings line. Hennas, which are available in most salons, are also a good safe, non-permanent option.
