Coloring one’s hair is one thing most men and women do. It could be for hiding greys or changing their looks. Either way, hair coloring damages one’s hair and leaves it dull and lifeless. What do you say we prepare a natural hair color that works for you?
Black / Deep Brown Hair
Dark hair color isn’t uncommon but you need natural coloring options because darker hair tends to show out greys more prominently. Premature greys are a real problem for both men and women, thanks to hectic lifestyle and a life that’s against nature.
Tea is a very common coloring agent. You can get natural black or dark brown color extract by brewing a strong concoction of tea.
You can add a few teaspoons (depends on how long, thick or dense your hair is and also, your shade) and bring the concoction to a boil. Let it boil for a few minutes so the color fully seeps in. Make sure the concoction is strong.
Apply this to your hair and wait for about 30 minutes and wash off with a mild shampoo. You can do this few times a week till the shade is to your satisfaction, and then use it once or twice a week.
A common coloring agent used in Henna, it is a herb that is very good for one’s skin and hair. That’s one reason why Indian women use Henna in their fingers, hands and legs – adds aesthetic value and also nourishes the skin.
Henna is now available in a few colors and can be chosen based on one’s hair color preference. The most common colors available are black, red, orange, deep red, brown red, etc.
Applying Henna as a dye is easy – buy dried henna powder and mix water to form a thick paste. Apply on your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes and wash off with a natural or mild shampoo.
Brewing a strong concoction of cherry bark is said to give a dark brown – black extract. Use this as a coloring agent or to hide greys.
Hibiscus / Rosehip
Coloring red hair can be quite tricky, though Rosehip and Hibiscus work well for red hair. Bring a cup of Hibiscus or Rosehips to a boil and apply the concoction to your hair. Don’t rinse off. You will have to do this 2 – 3 times a week.
Beets & Carrots
Just like lip stains or lipstick, Beets can work for coloring red hair. Prepare a juice of beets and carrots (you can skip if you want dark red or maroon color) and apply it to your hair. Let it sit for 20 – 30 minutes before styling. If you use heat the color sets well.
Do you know you can lighten your hair naturally without going through chemical bleaching? Of course, it would take longer than a quick bleach treatment, but it wouldn’t damage your hair and in fact, can enhance your hair health.
Lime can bleach or lighten your hair naturally. Squeeze a few lemons to extract the juice. Brew three cups of strong chamomile tea and add the lemon juice after the brew cools down. Apply the mixture to your hair and let it sit for 30 minutes before washing off with a mild shampoo. Continue this process till your get the desired hair shade.
