I've read in magazines and the occasional newspaper recently that there have been lots of people having allergic reactions to hair dye. Well I die my hair lots, not vile colours like fluorescent green or something, but dark brown or reddish (my natural hair is light brown). Anyway I would like some suggestions as to what colour to dye my hair next as I get bored of it really easily and fancy a change... and my friends are no help! I have a fair complexion and blue eyes?

Use henna dye, it is a pretty rich colour and it's all natural so it won't make you allergic, it's cheap and it smells nice.

Or you can also use vegetable colours, but they wash out quicker but for a pound a bottle you can get pretty much any colour you want

Vegetable Colours are the stuff you put in cakes!!!
It works better on a clean light canvas though so if your hair doesn't seem to look as though it's getting a lot of colour when you do it, get it lightly bleached...not BLEACHED but just ask for it to be made a lighter colour. It will cost a little but then you can use as many colours as you want and if you want to wash it all out there are some organic things you can use or even just some blonde shampoo what's it called hang on, my mum uses it cuz she's grey...sheer blonde it gets rid of chlorine etc

I would be extremely careful when using henna dyes as if you leave them in too long you could end up with a totally unexpected. One friend used henna and ended up completly ginger when she wanted a burgundy! And the bad thing is it was permanent!

A lot of hair dressers also offer 'organic colours ' now which are extremely gentle on your hair & can be mixed to produce lots of shades.
