It's no secret that I'm a big fan of coloring my hair.

I've reached a point, though, where I'd like to give my tresses a bit of a break, and turn to more natural means of color.

Fortunately, there are plenty of them to choose from, many of which work surprisingly well.

If you're interest in coloring your hair without all the chemicals, maybe you'll be inspired by some of these ways to naturally add color to your hair!

1. Lemon Juice

Lemon juice is probably the most well known way to naturally add color to your hair, not to mention one of the safest.

It's incredibly easy, and there are a number of ways to do it.

You can simply put lemon juice in your hair and leave it be, which will lighten it over time.

If you want it to go faster, you can sit out in the sun or apply the juice – always diluted with water – and then dry it with a hair dryer.

You can also try a mix of lemon juice, water, and the #2 choice.

2. Peroxide

Peroxide isn't wholly natural, I'll grant you that, but it will lighten your hair.

You need to dilute it with water as well, but speaking from firsthand experience, it's actually better to use just a little bit of peroxide, lemon juice, and water.

That will save you from getting the brassy, rather orange shade that straight up peroxide has been known to cause.

3. Chamomile

Another way to naturally add color to your hair is to use chamomile.3

This, too, is a lightening agent.

If your hair is blond but fading, particularly, you can use a chamomile rinse to brighten it.

All you need to do is boil a quart of water and then add three quarters of a cup worth of chamomile flowers.

The whole mix needs to boil for about forty minutes, then you can strain it and rinse your hair with it, after trying it with a towel.

Let it soak into your hair for about twenty minutes.

You can do it two times a week for really great results.
