Hair color has became a rage in recent times. It is considered essential to look good. It is adopted when you have problem with premature graying or just for a change of look or may be just for fun. I color my hair but not the complete hair but I love to have some peek-a-boo highlights. I have them now. So, the question is “is it healthy for hair?”
Well, you know the answer. It’s NO. This is because coloring your hair means putting your hair to undergo a physical torture (did I sound harsh?) Our hair is made up of proteins and can tolerate only certain treatments. If it crosses its threshold level, it starts to fall off (you can read it dies, again I’m rude here).
It is advisable to avoid coloring of hair! But should we sacrifice our wish to look cool just for the sake of this? No right. So, for the people who want to color the hair but not damage the hair, this one’s for you. Color your hair with herbal products which don’t have chemicals at all. Here is how to make herbal hair color at home. Learn the various recipes.

Herbal hair dyes usually are obtained from natural ingredients such as fruits, vegetables and other essential offerings.
I would summarize few recipes on how to colour hair at home using herbal products.
To lighten the dark hair
If you wish to have the complete hair turn lighter, then apply the mixture to the complete hair. If you want to lighten specific strands only, then spray the solution on those particular strands only.
If you don’t have time to be in the sun light, Use a hair drier. It will work alike. Rinse it off after an hour for sure. Do not forget to rinse and condition the hair properly.
