Shall we jump right in?
Henna just might be the easiest way to dye your hair without any chemicals
Probably the easiest, safest, and some would say the best way to dye your hair without using any chemicals, you’re going to be able to find henna hair dyes that give you the opportunity to completely transform your hair – with a variety of different colors available – without any of the risk, danger, or downside.
Not only will you be able to change the color of your hair using henna dies, but you’ll also help it become healthier, softer, and shinier at the same time.
A mixture of lemon juice and chamomile tea
Though people with darker hair haven’t had the opportunity to completely transform the color of their hair with this mixture as well as those with lighter hair have been able to come if you want to drop a shade or two – or go platinum blonde from regular blonde – this is going to be right up your alley!
The mixture of chamomile tea and lemon juice will help your hair react with the UV lights of the sun, lightning and brightening your hair at the exact same time.
All-natural color enhancing shampoos
There are quite a few color enhancing shampoos available on the market right now, but only some of them have formulations that do not require chemical intervention for them to work.
Look out for all-natural color enhancing shampoos that do not use a chemical formulation and you’ll be able to brighten or darken your hair for the day – and then wash it all out and start over again (maybe with a different shade) the next morning!
Black coffee and black tea just might do the trick
The odds are pretty good that you already understand and appreciate the sustaining power of dark beverages like coffee and tea. It’s likely that your dentist has warned you about the staining properties of these beverages, and their ability to completely change the way that your smile looks with nothing more than daily consumption.
But you might not know that soaking your hair in these dark beverages also has the opportunity to give anyone a beautiful shade of chestnut brown hair – though you’ll have to brew at least a couple of pots (and let it cool down a bit) before you undertake the soaking.
Red hibiscus tea will give you that Jessica Rabbit look
They are our a couple of different reasons why all of the men in Who Framed Roger Rabbit? went absolutely nuts over Jessica rabbit, and one of them is because of her gorgeous red hair.
While you might not be able to pull of the same kind of shade, the same kind of brightness, or the same kind of brilliance with red hibiscus tea as you would with a chemical soak, you’ll be able to get almost all the way there and won’t have to deal with any headache or hassle from the side effects of dangerous chemical hair dye solutions.
Again, you’ll have to brew up quite a large batch to soak your hair (depending upon just how long your hair already is), but for most people the extra effort is well worth it!
At the end of the day, there are a bunch of different options that you’ll have available to you when it’s time to die your hair without using any chemicals.
If you’re looking to die your hair because you are sensitive or allergic to those chemicals, want to be able to go about dying hair while pregnant, or just want to change things up without having to radically overhaul the color or composition of the your hair, this is the way to go.
Take advantage of all the inside information that we’ve been able to share with you above, do a little bit of research and due diligence all on your own, and leverage all of the experience you have dying your hair in the past.
