Women love to change up their hair color from time to time. But a new style often means dousing your tresses with harsh chemicals that can be damaging your hair and the environment.
Green gals will be happy to know that you can ditch the foils and still get the color you crave. Just try out one of these all natural hair fixes you can do at home.
Keep in mind before you get started that natural dyes aren’t exactly a quick fix. Most of these rinses take several treatments to begin taking effect – sometimes as many as 15 to 20. But if you’re willing to wait, your hair will thank you later.
It’s advisable to start with a few diluted treatments first, as every person’s hair responds differently to natural hair dyes. Gradually increase to the full-strength recipe once you see how the treatment affects your hair. You may need to adjust the recipe to get the color you’re looking for.
Once you’ve reached your desired color, continue using the rinses once a week to maintain your shade.
Be careful with using these treatments if your hair has been chemically colored or treated recently. Natural dyes may react differently to hair that has already been treated with commercial dyes. For best results, let your hair grow out before giving these treatments a try.
