Red Herbal Hair Dye

By A. Devia

So you'd like to add some red hues to your hair without the harsh chemicals?  If you have black hair, forget it.  Sorry, just being honest.  You'll need to lighten your hair first and then there is no telling how herbal dyes will react with chemically treated hair - it might be good, it might not.

However, if your hair is naturally light in color, you can slowly adjust the hue and highlights naturally.  Notice I said, slowly.  This is not a dramatic one stop change but a gradual color adjustment over time.

You'll need:
1 spray bottle
2 cups water
1/2 cup calendula
2 tbsp hibiscus

Bring water to boil.  Add calendula and hibiscus.  Reduce heat and simmer for 20-30 mins.  Allow to cool.  Strain into spray bottle.

Spray on hair at the end of shower.  Allow to dry naturally, in the sun is even better.  This solution will gradually add red hues and highlights to your hair if used with ever shower for several weeks.  When you reach the shade you like, reduce usage to once a week to maintain color.
