Homemade Hair Dye - Natural Recipes and Ideas

Do you wish to learn how to make homemade hair dye?

Making your own hair dye at home might sound like a strange idea to most, but when you consider the damage that is caused to your hair by all the chemicals used in commercially produced hair dye, you might actually change the way you think.

Changing your hair color is akin to taking a holiday - you feel refreshed and revived because of the steps you have taken to change something about yourself.

When choosing the right color of homemade hair dye, make sure you match your skin tone to the color, as darker colors could make you look washed out, while lighter colors will sometimes fail to show off your facial features. If you have a light skin color, then choosing darker shades, but not too dark, will probably bring your face to life. Having a dark skin tone will definitely help when dying your hair a lighter color.

Rinse your hair with lemon juice and warm water about fifteen times to lighten your hair color to an almost blond shade. If you would prefer to just add streaks, then use some prepared chamomile tea with the lemon juice on a few strands at a time. This will give a nice light shade that will shine in the sun.

Brown or brunette hair dye can easily be created with strongly brewed black tea or coffee. You also need to rinse your hair about 15 times with the strong tea or coffee, but you need to do it every day for at least three weeks, depending of course on the shade you are looking for.

One cup of beetroot juice combined with one cup of pure carrot juice is used to add a red tint to your hair. Leave this homemade hair dye mixture in your hair and spend about fifteen minutes in the sun to ensure the mixture is soaked into the hair follicles. Once again, the more often you do this, the sharper the red color gets.

If you are looking to mask those unrelenting gray hairs, then all you need to do is boil 1/2 a cup of dried sage in two cups of water for about half an hour. Once this homemade hair dye is cooled, rub it into your hair vigorously and leave it to dry. Repeating this process regularly will enhance the color and keep the new growth from peeking out.

Do you have an invitation to a fancy dress party? Then why not use Kool-aid cool drink mix which is only slightly diluted in water to turn your hair any shade from blue to purple. This idea is great for parties or events where you would like to jazz up your look, and the great thing is that it washes out after only a few washes. Be a bit cautious about getting the mix on the skin around your face, as you will need to use acetone to remove the color.

When using homemade hair dye, it will take a bit of time to get the right color, but with a bit of patience and experimentation, you can create your perfect color and have fantastically healthy hair, too. And, if you can afford it, organic ingredients are the best for making your own hair dye. Have fun!
