All Natural Hair Color and Highlights

Natural Hair Coloring and Highlights
Natural hair rinses work over a period of time giving subtle color and highlights. To clean damp hair, pour any natural color rinse over hair a dozen or more times catching the excess liquid in a large bowl or bathroom sink as it runs off, and pouring it over hair repeatedly. Since these work gradually, they won’t give you immediate results so give them time to make changes in your coloring.

For Brunettes:
Cook an unpeeled potato in boiling water. While liquid is still warm, dip a paint brush or cotton ball in the cooking water and saturate hair, being careful not to get any on skin. Leave on hair for 20-30 minutes and rinse.
For Blondes:
Make a strong tea from saffron, turmeric, calendula, mullein, privet, yellow broom, or any yellow blossomed herb or flower will add color and highlights for blondes. Or try bringing to boil 4 tablespoons of chopped rhubarb in 3 cups hot water then simmer 15 minutes. Strain, cool, and pour over hair after shampooing. To restore hair that was once blonde, mix equal parts of licorice root and oat straw and add a little saffron. Cover with water, bring to boil, then simmer to make a strong tea. Strain and use as a rinse after shampooing, soaking hair, do not rinse out.
For Redheads:
Use a strong tea from rosehips, calendula, or red hibiscus.
