Sorry - don't know if this is the right area to post this.
I was just wondering if anyone in the UK knows where I could find a really good herbal, organic, environmentally friendly hair dye?
Boots, Superdrug, even Holland & Barratt - nothing.

Don't know but am bumping up your post so it's at the top and easily found. Hope you get your question answered.

Thanks, RawSinger. Doesn't look like anyone knows the answer(!)
I've since bought horrible yucky chemical hair dye, and am nerving myself to use it...

how about henna?

I used to use the Body Shop's henna, but it made my hair unbelievably dry.
Ah well. What I need is lots of money and a tip-top colourist, but Wella is going to have to do ...!

I've never used henna before but ,regarding your dry hair, I was just reading about henna on this awsome site about henna and it said that some comercially prepared henna mixes will mess up your hair so I guess all henna is not created equal!
My hairdresser tells me that henna isn’t safe / bad for my hair / needs to be done by an expert.
No such thing. This may be for several factual or speculative reasons, such as:
1) Some brands of henna contain metallic compounds that react with the ammonia activator in synthetic hair dyes. These reactions yield disasters like frog butt green hair, fried and brittle hair, and in some rare cases, the combination of metals and a freshly done chemical job might melt the hair off your head. Many henna hair dye producers do NOT provide accurate and complete labeling on their products. Other producers lie about what’s in their product, or do not know what they’re selling. If you have dyed your hair, use only body art quality from a reputable source to be sure you won’t get frog butt green fried hair!

Thanks, Cherries! Guess I got off lightly!
I actually have seen a lot of 'redheads' with greenish scalps. And maybe I was one of 'em. Eek!
