Sheen with sage or rosemary
To gently darken brown or black hair that's showing signs of grey, use a rinse made from sage or rosemary. Add between two teaspoons and one tablespoon of either dried herb to a cup of the boiling water. Let the liquid cool to a comfortable temperature, strain out the herb, and put the liquid over your hair after shampooing. Don't rinse it out. Repeat each time you wash your hair until you have covered the grey.

Add nettle and walnut to the mix
For auburn, brown, or medium to dark grey hair, use a coloring made with nettle and black walnut hulls (available at health food stores or by mail-order catalogs). To prepare the coloring, boil eight cups of water and add one-quarter cup each of the dried sage, rosemary, and nettle; one-half cup of black walnut hulls; and two black tea bags. Allow the mixture to steep for three hours, then strain out the herbs and walnut hulls and add two teaspoons of sweet almond or olive oil. Keep the mixture refrigerated until you're ready to use it. After you wash and rinse your hair, slip on a pair of rubber gloves and work one-half cup of the mixture through your hair, being careful not to get it on your forehead, neck, and temples. Wait a minute or so before towel drying your hair. Use a dark towel so that the stains won't show.
