Hello!  I am new to this forum.  I am 25 weeks pregnant & have tons of gray hair that I want to cover.  My natural color is brunette & all I want to do is all over color.  Everytime I color my hair with salon or store products my scalp stings & itches.  Ive never actually broke out with a rash (thank goodness) but I am apprehensive to use products that have strong chemicals (PPD or other)

Do you recommend any natural hair dye products that are available at health stores or the internet?   I'm willing to pay extra money for a great product.  I just want to be safe during pregnancy & for my own health.

I have got to cover this gray.

It is always best to avoid chemicals during pregnancy.  I haven't heard if the chemicals in dye are actually harmful or not during pregnancy, but may as well avoid them just in case - especially if they make your head itch. 

Here is a link for some recipes for natural hair dye (but also be careful using herbs during pregnancy, some herbs should definitely not be used while pregnant).  I'm not sure which ones, as I've never been pregnant so I didn't need to know, but you can find out easily by searching the web for "herbs to avoid during pregnancy"( or maybe even this forum).

Henna is as option that is safe during pregnancy.  Be aware that body art quality henna, which you can buy online, will give you great color and hair softness, but it is permanent.  It comes in red and you can mix it with other substances to get the color you want.   The henna you buy in health food stores usually has metals in it (especially if it says it comes in colors besides red), this henna is less good for your hair, but it is not that bad, and it is not permanent.  Don't use henna if you've bleached or lightened your hair though, there's a real chance it could go green and stay that way.  Here is a link for BAQ henna with plenty of info and recipes for different colors:
