For dark hair, try brewing a cup of strong black tea or coffee, letting it cool down and applying it to the hair, rinsing thoroughly after 20 to 30 minutes. To lighten the hair, mix 1 cup of lemon juice with 3 cups of strong chamomile tea and apply to the hair and then allow the hair to dry in the sun before rinsing. Although each of these methods is temporary, they are perfect for those who want to avoid the damage of traditional hair dyes.
Those with red hair may find hibiscus or rosehips work well. Unlike the methods listed above, redheads see better results when this dye is left in rather than rinsed out.
