    Is there a healthy hair dye?

    I love to use products that don't have toxins and harmful chemicals. Anybody know if there is a way to dye hair without using all kinds of toxic sludge?

    I'm not sure about healthy, but there are definitely natural ways to dye your hair. Ways that are less harmful. I would check out these hubs:

    There are more healthy ways of coloring your hair. The best product for you depends on what you want to accomplish.
    In my experience, more natural products deposit color on your hair and work great for covering grey,but so much on drastically changing the overall color unless your hair is grey.
    I've used a brand called Naturtint for many years that uses natural ingredients and is free of ammonia, resorcinol and parabens. It also has no odor and can give you a slight color change depending on the color of your hair and the color you use. The manufactuer usually provides a color chart to help guide you in your color choice.
    If covering grey is your goal, you'll need make sure the product you use says "100 percent grey cover" to get the best results.
    In my experience henna doesn't work so well on grey, but does make your hair shine and can give a slight color "change".
    The only draw back is that since they're more natural, they don't last as long. If you use a regular shampoo, it fades even quicker. A conditioning cleanser works best to prolong the more natural hair colors. 
    You can check out this link and read about some different types and brands of more natural hair color http://www.swansonvitamins.com/q?kw=hair+color. Be sure to read the ingredient list to sure your comfortable with them all. Health food stores carry them as well.

    Henna! It's a natural product taken from a plant. I think they have black and a mahogany-brown available. You just mix it with water (if in solid form) and comb it into your hair, wrap some clingfilm around your head and then leave it for a couple of hours. You shouldn't use this is combination with artificial hair dyes I hear though...

    Indeed henna is best or you can opt for organic hair dyes. Try Aveda, but there are more. Chinese bigen is not too bad and quite affordable. It is available in most Chinese supermarkets.
