Tea: Tea works best offering natural hair color. Black tea is effective to go darker and the grey hairs get covered, while other teas can be used for lighter hair, such as rooibos for redheads and chamomile for blondes. Take 3-5 tea bags in two cups of water, apply cooled tea or mix it with conditioner. If you wish to cover grays, mix in dried or fresh sage so that it helps in opening your hair follicles. Leave on an hour, or even overnight to get more color and rinse using warm water.
Henna: Henna powder is made using henna plant leaves and it has a coloring pigment naturally and thus works perfectly with hair. It may be used alone to get a red-orange color, appropriate choice for redheads and brunettes. Results may be more orange, so try mixing it with chamomile to soften it. Take a cup of henna powder and add lemon juice two cups. Optional: add 1 tbsp of vinegar for better release of color. Let it sit for 4-6 hours, apply to hair and comb, wrap in plastic wrap initially and later before rinsing leave it for 2-3 hours and then rinse with water.
