The first time I ever died my hair was with henna, and quite along time ago. Instinctively I have always avoided artificial chemicals and products full of them – specifically makeup and hair products, and I have experimented with various natural materials and methods.
My favourite is the clay facial mask, bath, and of course henna.
Here is one of my favourite brands – Lush – their henna is called poo but it contains a bunch of natural, lovely and safe ingredients -100%.
They make your hair look shiny, feel healthy with absolutely no risk at all.
Here are some more about it:

What Is Henna?
Henna or ‘Lawsonia inermis’ is a private type bush that grows abundantly throughout the eastern countries. It has a natural, vibrant red color that also coats the hair to add loads of shine.
Henna quality depends on which country it is grown in. For instance, Egyptian and Pakistan henna gives a weak orange. Lush uses the finest henna in the world, which is grown in Iran (Persia) and gives a vibrant red color. Obtaining Iranian henna is not simple, but we are lucky enough to have a supply line in the UK. We purchase it by the container load (a few tons at a time) to offer the finest possible henna to our customers.
Hennas have been used since 3400 BC and are well documented safe methods for dying hair (and skin). Hennas offer a safe alternative to coloring with commercial hair dyes. A henna can be modified with other ingredients like chamomile, rhubarb, coffee, and indigo.
OUCH: Originally, common commercial hair dyes were a product of the carpet dying industry in France. Such dyes were fatal substances and resulted in the deaths of many people.
