I know about Henna but I don't want to go black. Anybody know of a chemical free hair color? ***I'm trying to do the natural hair care thing**

  • Stay away from metallic dyes. You can't put ANY chemicals over top of it later or it will fry your hair. You need some level of "chemicals" to open the shaft to accept the color. But with that said, there are certainly low chemical load hair colors out there, but you won't get much (if any) lift out them. So the will be deposit only - which means the same level of lightness/darkness you are now, or darker - can't go lighter. To go lighter, there has to be a chemical lift provided by peroxide and/or bleach

  • you can use tea dyes, yet most of those are meant for natural enhancement of your current color.
