I need hair dye!

Ok, I know I should be ok about having a few grey hairs, but they seem to be spreading! I have used commercial box hair dye kits before, but I now want to try a more natural approach. I still need an easy box kit, though. I saw a few at Whole Foods yesterday, but wanted to get someone else's opinion. I have very thick, wavy/frizzy hair. I don't want to use something that will dry out my hair.
Thanks for any input!

you can use tea. I had to once before when my mom was in cosmetology school and turned my hair green.

Re: I need hair dye!

How long does the color last if you use tea?

Shea Moisture just came out with some hair coloring, so far just sold at select Target stores, mainly in big cites. Not sure if that could help you.

About a month depending on how often you wash it. If I remember correctly.

Excellent products and very good company. If I were to consider dying my hair I would try this brand first.

Re: I need hair dye!

Depending on the color of your hair, these henna formulations, when the instructions are followed properly, are supposed to allow for much more control over the henna coloration than simply throwing henna on does. So if red highlights would work for you, then it is a possibility: http://justforredheads.com/jfravigalhenna.html As a redhead, I've kept this one in my back pocket for when that day comes .
