Have you tried the Artisan Bread in 5 minutes a day bread? It gets kind of sourdough-ey if you reuse the container each time you mix it up without washing it out. And it's so easy.

My daughter uses henna all the time.  She's dark blonde and it makes her hair a nice shade of orangey blonde.  She buys bricks of it and melts it on the stove somehow.  I think she gets it from Lush.
