Looking for a homemade hair dye recipe that won't irritate your skin? Here are several recipes you can mix at home for dyeing your hair blonde or red. We also have homemade hair color recipes for brunettes which are perfect hair dyes for sensitive skin.
Vegetable based hair dyes are natural and the safest for people with sensitive skin issues. As you probably already know, commercial hair dyes can be very damaging not only to the hair, but also to the skin around the face and in the neck area.
Commercial hair dyes contain harmful chemicals that can potentially negatively affect your sensitive skin. You can avoid breakouts and rashes by mixing your own homemade hair dye recipe.
Chamomile tea, applied to blonde hair once a week, can help to brighten blonde locks and make your hair look and feel healthier. In addition, chamomile is calming and soothing for your entire body and especially helpful if you are feeling stressed out.
Because everything we put on our hair and our skin ends up circulating through our entire body, a chamomile tea hair rinse is also excellent for your entire body!
Chamomile has some excellent health benefits in reducing tension and stress, helping wounds to heal, relieving digestive problems, strengthening the immune system and clearing up skin inflammation.
Note: other flowered herbs such as turmeric, calendula, or saffron will work in much the same way as chamomile.
There are some people who may be allergic to chamomile, so please do a skin test first before using a chamomile hair rinse. If you are allergic to ragweed, marigold, daisy, dhrysanthemums or other flowers, you may also have a reaction to chamomile.
Chamomile should also not be used by people who have bleeding disorders or who are taking a blood thinning medication, as it countains coumarin, a natural chemical compound found in many plants that acts as an anti-coagulant.
This is a fantastic way to color your hair red using natural henna.
One note about henna: it can be tricky to arrive at just the right shade of red using henna, so be prepared to experiment a bit with it before achieving just the right shade. Always wear gloves.
Give one homemade hair dye recipe a try and see if it might work for you! It's important also to note that some of the natural dyes take a few weeks to take hold and achieve the color for which you are looking, so be patient.
It's a much better way to color your hair however, especially if you have sensitive skin, so it's well worth the wait to avoid the harsh chemicals contained in commercial brand hair dyes.
There are some very nice new natural henna hair dyes now available which are created for specific hair colors. I'm going to try some myself and will let you know how they work! :-)
