You Will Need
- A natural hair-dye kit
- An old t-shirt
- An old towel
- Latex gloves
- A wide-tooth comb
- A gentle shampoo
- An egg timer (optional)
Open your hair-dye kit and become familiar with its contents. Read any warnings or precautions before starting.
Set up your workstation near a sink, being sure to wear an old t-shirt and using a towel you don't mind staining.
Mix your tint with the included developer following the directions on the package.
Put on your latex gloves and apply the mixture to your roots. Use a wide-tooth comb to evenly distribute the coloring through your hair.
Massage the dye into your hair using your fingertips and allow it to set according to the directions.
Rinse your hair thoroughly with a gentle shampoo such as baby shampoo.
Style your hair as desired. The full effect of the dye will take 24 to 48 hours to develop, so be patient.
