Safe and natural: dye your hair without damaging it

The vast majority of women (over 65%) dye their hair, and many of them do so with products sold in supermarkets and pharmacies. These products contain chemicals that are very harmful to your hair and health.

A good option is to dye your hair at home safely and without damaging it. Here are some ideas:

1. Herbs and flowers

Natural color for your hair

If you want to get a reddish colour, try marigold, rosehips or hibiscus. If you like brown better, try rosemary, nettle and sage. If you prefer blond, try chamomile, marigold, saffron and sunflower petals.

Simmer the herbs in water for 30 minutes, let it cool, strain it and apply it to your hair.

2. Coffee

Coffee works very well if your goal is to darken your hair

It works very well if your goal is to darken your hair. You will get a chocolate colour without damaging it.

Make a black coffee, it's best if it’s organic. Let it cool and mix it with your natural conditioner. Add two tablespoons of organic coffee beans and apply it to your hair for at least one hour. Rinse it with apple cider vinegar to make it last longer.

3. Tea

You can use black tea to darken your hair

You can use black tea to darken your hair (although not as effective as coffee) or camomile tea to lighten it. If you want a red shade, you can use rooibos tea.

Boil two cups of water and put in 3-5 tea bags. You can apply it alone or mixed with your regular conditioner. Leave it on all night and wash your hair normally the next morning.

4. Beet and Carrot Juice

Dye your hair without using chemicals

Ideal for achieving a more coppery tone in natural hair. For a more intense red, add more beet juice, and for a more orange tone add more carrot juice.

Mix both juices, add a spoonful of coconut oil and apply it to the hair. Leave it on for at least one hour and rinse with apple cider vinegar. Repeat the process if you want a darker shade.

5. Lemon juice

Lemon is a perfect ally if you want to make your colour lighter.

It's a perfect ally if you want to make your colour lighter. Spray lemon juice on your hair and leave it on for several hours. The results are gradual, so you will have to repeat the process for several days.

6. Nutshells

Use nutshells to get a brown-dark color

This method is perfect for getting a dark-brown colour. Just shred the shells and boil them for 30 minutes. Let it cool before you apply it. Leave it on for at least an hour and rinse your hair with warm water.

7. Honey and vinegar

Honey naturally lightens your hair

These two products also naturally lighten hair by working together.

Use one cup of raw honey, two cups of distilled vinegar, one tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil and one tablespoon of ground cardamom or cinnamon. Mix them to form a paste.

Wet your hair and then apply the paste. Wrap your hair in plastic film or a towel. Leave the mixture on overnight and rinse it in the morning.

8. Henna

Henna powder has a natural colouring pigment

Henna powder, formed from the leaves of the henna plant, has a natural colouring pigment that works very well on hair. When used alone, henna generates a red-orange colour.

Mix one cup of henna powder with two cups of lemon juice and one tablespoon of vinegar. Let it sit for 4-6 hours and apply it. Leave it on for about 3 hours and rinse with warm water.
