For awhile I dyed my hair with regular Feria, but then I realized that chemicals like p-Phenylenediamine are bad news, esp thinking of future children. Right now I'm growing out the hair dye (red). My natural color is a dark brown with light brown highlights, so I've been using henna to blend in the roots a little, though it only dyes the highlights. I've done a few lemon juice rinses hoping to lighten my roots a bit, but it doesn't have much effect (it did allow me to go no-poo though since it dried out my hair lol). Does anyone have any experience with growing out hair color? Did you chose to give up hair color for health reasons? Any tips for naturally modifying your hair color with less-harmful methods?
Here is a forager man (from the "uncontacted tribe") with hair color. I suspect it's annatto and grease, which doesn't work very well in the modern world because it gets all over everything.
