You may love changing your hair color every once in a while, but how does your hair feel about the process? Traditional hair dyes have been notorious for causing damage to your hair and scalp — in drastic cases, some people even have to quit coloring their hair altogether. Fortunately, a new type of hair dye is now in the market that won't wreak havoc to your crowning glory. Organic hair dyes are a much better alternative since they are made from natural ingredients and have fewer chemicals than traditional hair dyes. Here are some of the best organic hair dyes that deliver vibrant color and nourishment to your hair.
