    So is there any hair dye out there that is natural?

    I'm sure there is some stuff from a box that is all extracts and natural dyes and such... but I'm talking REAL natural.

    Is there some sort of natural extraction I can do.... or hell, can I go rub my head in a vat of some sort of fruit juice?

    red would be nice.


    Yeah I'm a bit blazed, a bit tired....disjointed post I"m sure.

    ya, henna is all natural. it makes your hair stronger and thicker too.

    yes, you want henna

    check at your hfs, you should be able to find henna there that is just ground henna leaves without anything else in it.

    ya I'm leaning twords a deep red too, my hair is a blonde-ish brown.

    I thought henna only lasted a few washes though? Also, what kind of fading is there? Last time I dyed my hair red (unnatural dyes) it faded to pink and my naturally affeminante looks were exasterbated that much more....hahaha, it was fun to fuck with people though. :)

    hm, i use lemon juice to mix up my henna powder, and then leave it in for an entire evening or whatever when i dye. the acid nature of the lemon helps activate and strengthen the henna. i like to henna my hair about once every 4 to 6 weeks, it's like a conditioning thing too, because the henna wraps itself around each strand of hair. i just did my hair a couple of days ago, and it's so lush! i love it. i only use natural shampoos or baking soda and vinegar rinses on my hair and only have to wash every few days, so that might help prevent fading. if i was using some supermarket crap shampoo on my hair, it would probably be a lot harsher
