I'm head over heels in love with this book. If you color your hair with conventional dyes but would welcome a healthy alternative, you must read this - but also read this book if you already henna your hair but would enjoy creative ways to play with herbal pigments, if you've never colored your hair but think it might be a lot of fun, or even if you just love plants and the nifty things they can do.  The author's warmth and enthusiasm make this book a pleasure to read, and it's absolutely wonderful the things that Christine Shahin can do with the natural plant dyes henna, indigo, amla, and cassia.  The whole book is gorgeously photographed and the models are real, vibrant, beautiful, "normal" women and men (not supermodels). Natural Hair Coloring is a down-to-earth, practical guide that will make coloring your hair with natural pigments fun and accessible even if you're a beginner.  It's also a generous and joyous celebration of beauty.

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.
