4. Despite having never dyed my hair before (unless you count purple Manic Panic dye that lasted for an entire day), I genuinely enjoyed “Natural Hair Coloring”. The author, Christine Shahin, presents a very compelling argument towards using natural clays and pigments as opposed to chemical hair dyes. The book contains beautiful photos of naturally colored hair and has a lot of “how to’s” so that we can all try this beauty venture out!
