How to Use Natural Hair Dye: 4 Fabulous Ways

Chemicals can be harsh but that doesn't mean you should forget about coloring your hair altogether! Dye your hair the natural way using ingredients you can find in your kitchen or at the grocery store for a new look that will keep your hair healthy and nourished.

Try a bold new color without destroying your hair by using all natural hair dye. Most of the ingredients you need are right in your kitchen pantry and if you don't have something on hand, picking something up at the grocery store is a lot easier (and cheaper!) than heading to the salon. So the next time you're in the mood to try something new, test out one of these easy DIY methods.
