Yeah, I know PPD is awful -- but it's in just about every dark brown dye on the market and I've never had a problem with it, even though I'd prefer *not* to use it. It seemed like a lot more people than "normal" were having PPD reactions with the Bigen, though, and that gave me pause. Especially as I have tattoos, which apparently puts me at greater risk for developing a reaction. Eeeeuuurgh! Not worth it!

I used to use Henna and indigo and I LOVE it, however I have very thick hair and now that it's about shoulder length I was winding up with week-long cervical headaches from the rinsing process. Bummer.

That Palette By Nature looks perfect, though, TinasArk -- thank you! I'm going to see if my healthy market carries it.
