does this even really exist? i really need to dye my hair a darker brown, its super light at the tips from all the sun and i don't like it. but my hair is pretty healthy right now because i haven't dyed it or used heat stylers or any products in it for a long time now...are there any ways to dye your hair that aren't extremely damaging to it?<br>
i have dark brown hair right now and i want it to be a really deep brown, almost black, which is more its natural color.<br>
any products or methods better for hair than others?

generally going darker doesnt damage your hair.....its the lightening process that is damaging.

Henna and indigo can make your hair dark brown or black! And it'll be beautiful and multi-dimensional, not flat and inky like buit-up chemical color.<br><br>
Only use Body Art Quality for the best results. (The stuff you buy off store shelves usually isn't pure and can cause all the problems that have scared people away from henna.) It takes a little more effort at first to nail down the formula and process you like best, but then you'll love it.<br><br>

My local health food store carries a line of natural hair dyes. I don't recall teh brand name, just that they are about double the price of the chemically laden ones, but worth it IMO. You might want to check out your local HFS.

How is that possible? If you use a commercial hair dye, they are pretty much guaranteed to have ammonia and plenty of chemicals, even for darker dyes. They totally strip your hair and dry it out. (I know from experience- and I always went darker, not lighter! lol)
