In 2008, Clairol has conducted a survey which showed that 75% of women in U.S. dye their hair. The same survey discovered that for 88% of women, their hair affects their confidence.
Women who often dye their hair, whether in a salon or at home, shouldn’t ignore the dangers of the chemical products they use.
Hair dyes contain around 5,000 different chemicals, many of them proven to be carcinogenic in animal researches.
Color Your Hair Without Using Chemicals
Beet or Carrot Juice for Red Hair
A great way to temporarily color your strands with reddish color is dyeing your hair using beet or carrot juice. In this way, your natural hair dye won’t contain any nasty chemical.
- Whipped coconut oil
- Beet juice (with or without carrot juice).
Mix the beet juice and the coconut oil, and apply the solution to your hair. Use a plastic warp to cover your hair. Let it act for an hour, and then rinse and condition as usual. Check out the video below to see this hair dyeing process:
Chamomile for Golden Blonde Hair.
- 300 ml of water.
- 8 tablespoons of dried chamomile flowers.
- Juice of half a lemon.
Pour the hot water over the chamomile flowers, and heat for around 15 minutes. After cooling, strain the mixture and add the lemon juice.
Spread the mixture on your entire hair, comb and let it dry. If you dry your hair outside on the sun, you will get even better results. After that, shampoo your hair as normal.
Walnut Hulls for Dark Brown Color.
Boil walnut hulls for at least half an hour. Allow the mixture to cool, and then soak your hair in it for about 20 minutes, depending on the desired shade. Don’t rub the dye into the scalp too much.
Onion Peels for Gray Hair.
In a glass of boiling water, soak 1/2 a glass of onion peels for about 20 minutes. Cover the glass to prevent the heat getting out. Use gauze to strain the mixture, and then add two tablespoons of glycerol to the strained liquid.
Apply this natural dye to your hair on a daily basis, until you get the desired shade. Once you rub your hair with the dye well, wash as normal and allow it to dry naturally.
