Some people enjoy having different colors in their hair but do not want to damage it completely. There are many ways to naturally dye your hair that can keep it from the chemicals and unwanted damage caused by hair dye. Here are Some ways to naturally dye your hair.
The Lemon juice will help to brighten up your extensions a bit and create a few natural looking highlights. You want to get some lemons and squeeze the juice out. Once that is done, you want to take the freshly squeezed lemon juice and place it in a spray bottle. Then spray and brush it through your extensions. You then want to leave the mixture in the extensions for several hours.
An excellent way to increase your results is to lay your extensions out in the sun; it helps to lighten. Keep in mind that lemon juice is a long process so you may need to apply the mixture to the hair a few times before you achieve the results that you want.
Coffee is a great way to get your extensions darker. What you want to do is brew a strong batch, let it cool down and mix it with leave-in conditioner and two tablespoons of ground coffee. Apply this mixture onto the extensions, and let it sit for an hour or longer depending on how dark you want the extensions. You may have to repeat this dyeing process a few times to get significantly darker results and using apple cider vinegar to wash out your extensions is a great way to get the color to last longer.
Another great way to brighten up your extensions is to use chamomile tea. Your best option is to make the tea highly concentrated so you can achieve strong results. Use about 3-5 tea bags for two cups of water. You can apply the cooled tea to the extensions alone, or mix the tea in with conditioner (the same method as the coffee recipe).
You then want to leave the tea on your hair for at least an hour if you want the color to show up stronger and to get excellent results. You can even store the extensions and let the tea soak into them overnight, then rinse it out the next day. The more time you leave the tea on the extensions, the more noticeable the color will be.
Henna is a powdered form of the leaves that people pick from a henna plant. These leaves have a natural coloring pigment people have done for several years to dye nails, skin, and hair. Natural Henna produces a red or orangeish color so when we see henna that is black or white; it is mixed with different ingredients to get that color.
If you desire a reddish color, natural henna works perfectly for you. Combine about one cup of henna powder with 2 cups lemon juice. The mixture then needs to sit for about 4-6 hours or until it is noticeably thick. After the combination is complete, you then want to apply to your extensions and comb through. Then store your extensions and allow them to sit for about 2-3 hours before rinsing it out.
