Aside from Henna, I mean (which, I may end up doing anyhow). I've seen Naturetint (I think the name is?) hair dye at the supermarket, but it has peroxide in it. I really just want something to "coat" my handful of greys, and that will make my hair a tad darker and shinier. (It is virgin med brown right now)

PS>> I'm preggo at the moment -- if that makes a difference.

Hi there,

I've had really severe allergic reactions to hair dye and so far have only been able to use henna. Henna does come in different colors but it isn't great for your hair in the long run as it coats the folicle and this prevents conditioners from working properly. It would be great if there was something else natrual available.

Sorry I don't have any advice, I'm just watching to see what other people have to suggest!

Actually, henna doesn't come in different colors. Henna, the leaves of Lawsonia inermis, dyes red. Only red. Always red. BUT! It can be mixed with other botanicals to "turn" the color to shades of brown or blonde. The shades will always have a red tint, though.

I think henna mixed with indigo dyes a brown shade. I'm not sure I remember correctly. Check it out at www.hennaforhair.com.

Woops, I thought this needed to be pointed out particularly. Both statements (all three?) are completely incorrect. Try www.hennaforhair.com for correct info
