In 2014, 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 Juice For Red Hair
A great way to temporarily color your strands with reddish color is dyeing your hair using beet juice. In this way, your natural hair dye won’t contain any nasty chemical.
- Beet Juice (1 Beet)
- 3 Tbsp. Whipped Coconut Oil
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.
Chamomile For Golden Blonde Hair
- 8 Tbsp. Of Dried Chamomile Flowers
- Half A Lemon Juice
- 1 Cup Of Water
Boil the water first, then pour it over the chamomile flowers and leave it 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
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.
Wash and condition your hair after, as you would normally do.
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 from 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.
Extra Tip: Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is the best solution for highlights. Just spray some lemon juice throughout your hair and leave it for several hours. You might need to repeat the process several times because it need some time to work.
