Extending Hair Color Naturally
 
Good Evening,

I recently dyed my hair dark brown, I am interested in finding a natural way to extend my new hair color and protect my curls. Any ideas? :happy7:

I know that both Aveda and Davines make color-depositing shampoos and conditioners, but I don't know of any way to extend the life of your hair color without using products designed for that.

To keep your colour looking great, WITHOUT DAMAGING your hair, there is a mousse in temporary colour refresher that, though it is not made with natural ingredients, is the closest thing to perfection I have ever found. You can see from the ratings and reviews, other people agree with me.

If you really want natural products, you can henna your hair. The henna plant produces an orange pigment. You can add Indigo, a blue plant pigment to this and get a brown colour. This process is arduous, but well worth it.

I'm a redhead, so I go with only the henna, but seeing a girlfriends results with a rich chestnut brown she gets by adding the Lush brown henna (which contains indigo), to a 100% henna, I am convinced this is what I would do if I needed brown hair. Her results wet stunning! The only issue is that, depending on your texture, you very may well loosen your curls. It did happen to me.

For quick great results, but with chemicals, and no loosening of curl, go with the goldwell!

I heard coffee enhances brown but I have really dark hair so I don't even bother trying.
