Just wondering if anyone has ever used the natural hair colouring products sold in healthfood stores? I'm trying to reduce the number of chemicals I use and this is one thing I haven't changed yet.

Thanks!

I did switch to an herbal product to cover some of my greys, but found it didn't do a very good job covering. I have very dark brown hair, almost black and it was horrible.

Instead, I go a lot longer before dying my hair. For instance, I haven't dyed my hair since beginning of January, so I have about a 1-1.5inch regrowth and its starting to big me. Which means I might dye it towards the end of this month. I try to go every 12 weeks to dye my hair. I did this while pregnant as well.

I figured I could stretch it out instead of doing it every 4 weeks.

I dunno if you have a superstore around you, but their health food section carries a few brands.

Does Henna count? There's dark henna (like, black/brown) and the reddish one. People have been using it for thousands of years.

Mardi is correct. Lush has incredible hair products. They are natural you have to keep it in your hair for about 1 to 4 hours. The longer it stays in the more conditioned and shiny your hair looks after.

I use henna as well. I go to an Indian grocery store to get mine. Way cheaper than the Lush henna, even if I do have to mix it myself, which really is no big deal, a bit of lemon, hot water and some conditioner that has no silicone in it, let sit a couple of hours covered to develop the color and paste onto your hair. At $4 a huge bag that will last forever vs the $20+ at Lush, I don't mind the extra effort.

Same here. Not to mention that The henna content of Lush is so small compare to the real deal from an indian store. I used Lush a few times, but the colour was never that intense and shiny as was after using just the powdered henna .

I think using natural products will not show certain side affects. But better to read about ingredients and their affects before using that products.
