Whole Foods carries natural hair dyes and I have been intrigued by this for some time. There are rumors swirling around about regular hair dyes being carcinogenic in addition to harmful for the environment as they are washed down the drain, so I figured at $17.99, this was worth a shot.
I wanted to add a few highlights and this (10N) is the lightest shade they carried.
Here is my natural hair, the “before” shot.
The treated hair is on the left.
The resulting highlights were extremely subtle, and I wanted a little more dimension, so I went back and got a darker box to add some lowlights, in hopes that they would make the light strands stand out more. FYI this dye did have a faint smell, but it was a stark contrast from normal dyes that singe your nose hairs.
This color (5N), was labeled “Light Chestnut Brown.” Who would’ve known from the picture they used…

Here is the final look. If you were wanting a dramatic color change this might not be the right stuff, but considering all I wanted was a color pick-me-up, I am happy with the results.
