Commercial hair dyes contain thousands of different chemicals, some of which are reported to be carcinogenic -- but you don't have to choose between gorgeous colour and good health. Natural hair care expert Christine Shahin shows you how to use nontoxic plant pigments -- henna, indigo, amla, and cassia -- to colour your hair naturally, whatever your hair type or ethnicity, with beautiful results! These pigments are readily available at natural food stores and online, and they're simple, safe, easy to use, and cost-effective. With clearly written instructions and step-by-step photography, Shahin shows you exactly how to apply these pigments, alone or in combinations, to achieve a full range of shades of brown, black, and red. She also includes instructions for transitioning from chemical dyes to natural ones and for using chemical and natural dyes together. AUTHOR: Christine Shahin is a licensed cosmetologist and holistic beauty practitioner who owns and operates a popular eco-salon/spa that attracts clients from across the United States. She has a conventional cosmetology license, though her interest and focus have always been on introducing natural, safe, ecologically responsible approaches to self-care. She continues to offer classes on natural hair and skin care topics, including colouring hair with pure plant pigments. SELLING POINTS: * A nontoxic, more natural alternative to a common practice. * Henna is a readily available plant material. * Photographic step-by-step to ensure success. * This approach to hair colouring will appeal to the growing market of women seeking healthier, more environmentally sound approaches to every aspect of personal health and body care, with a special attraction for women aged 40 and up.
