Natural Red Hair Dye

Like Tree1Likes

hahaha gets a bit like that ay?

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
Yeah, I'm thinking about spraying teas on my hair. I hear they could stain, so I might try hibiscus, rosehip, and rooibos. I heard some say green tea added a red tint, but I wonder how that would work.
Cinnamon gives me reddish shimmery highlights, I have pretty dark hair. I leave it on overnight. I base my scalp with oil before applying it so it doesn't irritate my scalp.

When I added cinnamon to my conditioner, it did tingle. Though, it would've tingled anyway, because I was using Aveda's Rosemary Mint. But I know it does because when I rinsed it off during my shower, even my shoulders were slightly red and tingly.. But a nice kind of tingle!
Well.. I finally found henna. I walked all the way to Sally's beauty supply and found Reshma Henna.. I got two of the reshma femme brand for natural highlight and the other for natural burgundy. I'm not sure which one I should use because I'm aiming for more of a burgundy color but the Reshma femme burgundy has other ingredients than henna but the natural highlights one is supposedly 100% henna. Which ones do you guys think I should try? I have naturally black hair but parts of ky hair have gone light brown and some even kind of coppery. I'm not sure whether I should try the burgundy one because that is the color I am aiming for or the pure henna because it might bring out a different color. I'm thinking about doing a test on the underlayer of my hair or try to make highlights. Any ideas? And has anyone tried this brand?

I've seen one review on YouTube suggesting Reshma brand contains all sorts of additives including the chemical dye p-Phenylenediamine (PPD), if so you've bought a hair dye marketed as 'natural' not pure henna.

You can get more of a burgundy tone from pure henna by building up layers over time. Henna is permanent, there is no bleaching it out so run strand tests instead of using your head as an laboratory. Also do skin patch tests, severe allergic reactions to both henna and to PPD can happen.

But the Reshma Henna natural high lights version is supposed to be pure henna.. Is that ok? The burgundy version one is the one with extra ingredients.

Try tomato juice, after you wash hair smother with tomato juice and then either put a shower cap on and heat with a hair dryer or throw a towel in the dryer before washing hair and wrap your hair up in a warm towel leave on as long as possible (overnight) and see if this works. It may act like a tint/highlighter or a nice blush depending on how dark or light your hair color is.
