All Natural Hair Color Recipes
DYING YOUR HAIR DARK BROWN OR BLACK
To make a dark brown or black dye that will work on all natural hair colors, mix 3 tablespoons black tea, ½ cup of black henna powder, 1 tablespoon olive oil, and 1 teaspoon cider vinegar. Add enough boiling water to produce a spreadable mixture. Apply with a broad brush, cover about 30-40 minutes before rinsing and washing your hair.
Create a rinse that will result in a darker shade with a subtle luster by stepping 4 tablespoons dried sage, 2 tablespoons dried rosemary, and 1 tablespoon lemon juice in about 1 2/3 cup of water over low heat. Strain after 30 minutes, cool, and use as a rinse after washing.
COLORING AND DARKENING GRAY HAIR
Gray hair can also be colored, producing high lighting effects, white hairs take on color differently from those that are not yet gray.
To darken gray hair, mix 3 ½ ounces boiling water with 4 tablespoon dried sage and 1 teaspoon black tea. Let steep for 30 minutes, then strain. Moisten your hair with the lukewarm solution and rinse after 30 minutes.
