    My natural food store has a line of natural dye, but I haven't used it. Natural Instincts and a few other have peroxide, but no ammonia. Worked okay, but some of the colors are intense.

    I have given up and use one with both ammonia and peroxide. I try to avoid a lot of chemicals so that dose every month or so is my vice.

    Henna will give give a lovely red tint and cover any gray. All natural and beautiful, I think.

    I looked online to see what I could find and both "Naturtint" and "Herbatint" brands seem to have good reviews.

    Henna is good and I think now you can get different shades. But, if you really don't want to dye your hair, don't. As we age our colour fades and our skin-tone does also. Sometimes very dyed hair can look more ageing than going natural. I haven't dyed my hair for many years, and now large stripes of it are very white. I often get asked who does my colour, so I'm guessing it doesn't look too bad. Anyway, I'm not too fussed on public opinion, but not dyeing has saved me quite a lot of money and stress. Hated touching up those roots.

    i find that Mother Nature has been doing a pretty good job of gradually dying my hair grey.

    no chemicals or additives involved or necessary. :lol:

    I don't know of any natural dyes to use. I have been having mine done for a long time. I have any a hair dresser who is good and does not charge an arm and a leg to do it. Wish I could have the nerve to see what color it is without the dye!

    How does henna differ from other coloring? How long does it last...how do you do the roots?

    Thanks,

    Jenny:)

    Unfortunately she decided that I should look like an ugly old woman. My grey is that Ashwednesday kind where you wanna cover in a feed sack and hide in a corner.

    I keep asking my hairdresser "what percent grey am I now"? I don't want the salt & pepper look, but when I'm 100% grey - the dye stops. I'm fortunate that my hair is greying a very nice silvery sheen. I almost can't wait!
