Henna may be an option, you can get it at a health food emporium that carries makeup and such. It is a natural herb you mix with water. No ammonia or bleach. The color can be hardto control, its best to do a strand test defniitely.
Hair dyes have been known to cause vitiligo (pigment loss like jacko had) and it spreads past the point where the dye was applied. Vitiligo is an autoimmune condition, so if you have an autoimmune disease already, you might want to be careful. I have it, triggered from hairdye initially, a small spot that fell on my thight.
All this being said, some dyes burn and itch and I'm clearly allergic to them and get a red itchy scalp and lose hair. Nice and Easy is one I can no longer use.
For some reason I can tolerate cheapo, low ammonia Balsam color and Herbal Essence color. I don't know why these don't bother me and clairol couldn't tell me.
I tried to use Loving Care, but in the rain it runs all down on your clothes and face and stains them. I just can never makeit work.
I want to use henna, just having trouble finding it.
If you decide to try henna, you need to make sure any semipermanent color is completely out of your hair or the hennawill make your hair turn green, and not a pretty shade. I don't know about permanent colors, you can call clairol. You can remove an offending color with a product called Metallex, which you can get at a beauty supply and some good drug stores, possibly walmart. It can be hard to find.
This is probably way mre than you wanted to know, but having lost pigment from hair dye, I have a lot of info on it.
Take care and know I still color my hair. I have a bottle that applies just to the roots and dye dark so I don't have to color as often.
