There's always henna. That's a plant. But it does tend towards redder shades over true blonde.

yes, henna is the only organic hair color. There are also other ones like Walnut etc. but they don't cover gray. I use henna on my hair, it is naturally dark brown and the henna give me very nice red highlights, where the grays are :-). But there is no such thing as a natural blond hair dye, yet.

I thought there was a haircolour that contained a lot of citrus-y ingredients? You might try a health food store or a beauty supply place, but Im not sure.
One thing I can say, and any beautician will tell you the same, is stay away from Fe'ria. That stuff contains metal or aluminum or something that you cannot use another brand, ever. Ask a beautician, but I was told by an instructor at a beauty college AND by another stylist at another salon.
I simply use whatever is on sale, any brand but Fe'ria.

Henna is a good idea, but keep in mind that if you use the henna hair dye, you have to wait a year (i think that's how long) if you want to dye your hair again with regular non-organic hair dye.

Hmm. I've used Feria in the past, and switched from it to other products without issue? Now I don't dye my hair at all, but when I did, I bought whatever was on sale...I have extra long hair and need two boxes.

Organic?
The only thing I can think of would be henna, which is complete plant extract/ powder.
Citrus will leave hair dried out (acid ph level) and yellow in color.
To really go the natural route, rinse your hair after every wash with strong brewed coffee.....your hair will turn darker.
As for highlights....huh.....how about henna?
In order to achieve blond highlights the color pigments need to be "stripped" out of the strands of hair.
There are no ways yet (safe anyway), to achieve that without chemicals.....UNLESS you resort to the citrus (which doesn't leave hair healthy, and creates more yellow/ orange hair)
Aveda salon is known for all plant derived products, and I use their products myself.
Best to check with your beauty salon...maybe there is something out there we haven't heard of .....yet.
You'll never know.....

I've been very happy with NaturColor since I discovered it.

Welcome to Naturcolor (http://www.naturcolor.com/naturcolor/ - broken link)

I didn't think it would cover gray hair, but it does and it doesn't dry and damage my hair. It's not very easy to find. Don't know what the matter is with this Italian company... It seems like they don't care very much about selling a wonderful product (as you can figure from their website as well), IMO. The first time I looked at this website there was only Italian contact info, I believe.

In my area Wild Oats (probably Whole Foods, too - they acquired Wild Oats recently; haven't paid attention if Wild Oats already changed name) and New Life Health Center carry it.

Whole Foods Market

New life Health Center

This hair dye combined with a good hair dryer (I didn't really believe it matters) - Sedu Ultrapower Professional Hair Dryer, Free Shipping - made my hair very healthy. Then I got it messed up trying to get another perm after so many years (hoping they've improved ), but that's another story... It'll get healthy again.

Wish you good hair days!

I've been happy with Naturtint. I don't know much about the ingredients but it's more natural than what you'd buy in a drugstore or a salon. It says--Ammonia free, Resorcinol free. It contains oat, wheat, corn, soy, and coconut. Says it's made in Europe and I get it at most natural foods stores.
