Brew and let cold:
3-5 teabags (black tea) equal amount loose tea
and sage brewn toghether with tea – equal parts.
Could even brew Sage tea, alone for coverage.
to brew much stronger than for drinking = concentrated,
Tea’s natural staining properties and anti-oxidants for colour and shine.
Works with natural colours, either blondes or brunettes.
Holistic Chic recommends chamomille tea for lightening, and rooibos tea for reddening for red haireds.
Though I wouldn’t choose rooibos for My red locks. Rooibos are for those women, often Vinters, who changed their black hair to red, for instance appliable to Sophia Loren. And those with really red hair from a bottle, but hardly existing in nature. Carrot juice, recommended here, http://www.ehow.com/how_12107662_dye-hair-red-tea.html for those who wants really shreaky orange hair. Like this:
Guess us naturally reds ‘d better stick to the black tea recepy, and with added sage for covering light strands.
Applicator recommended: clean empty plastic squeeze bottle –
After applying the cooled tea and/or sage, let be for at least an hour. Or leave it till morning and then rinse. The longer it sits, the stronger the colour: do you see greys, then let mixture work longer.
(Or add more?)
Rinse with cold water.
Wonder how long the dye will last: to next wash only, or longer??
How to use coffee to dye your hair
- Make really strong organic coffee ( I use this one) , preferably espresso. Non organic coffee most likely contains some added chemicals.
- Let your coffee cool down.
- Mix 2 cups of leave in all natural conditioner with 2 tbsp. of organic coffee grounds and 1 cup of cold brewed coffee.
- Apply the mixture onto your hair and leave it in for about an hour. It will give your hair a beautiful chocolate color without any damage.
Simple Coffee Rinse
Shampoo your hair first and then pour coffee over your hair. Leave it in for 20 minutes. Use apple cider vinegar to rinse the coffee out of your hair (it will help seal in the color). Then rinse it off with warm water.
If you don’t see the desired results right away, repeat the same process for a few days in a row to allow the coffee to penetrate the strands of your hair.
