Santuary, have you ever tried henna to color your hair. My friend who is starting to gray a little just tried it and loves it. Shes use to be a hairdresser and she dyed her hair for years with chemicals and after trying henna, she likes it much better. I just tried it too the other day, and it made my hair look and feel healthier. Some hennas you get at the store have chemicals in them, so if you decide to try it, I would recommend read hennaforhair.com about how to know if what you are getting is real or not, or you could just order from them. I will admit henna is messier to work with and more expensive, but maybe worth it for us when we are trying to get healthier.
