How To Make brunette homemade hair dye

    When ready,put on an old shirt and have an old towel,that will be stained,to wrap up your hair in for the two hour dye job.I wash my hair on any other day ahead of this dye job.

    Start with dry hair,your pot of tea and your sponge.Lean over the tub and sponge soak up the tea and squeeze sponge out onto your hair with one hand and the other hand just ruffles through your hair so it all gets wet.Use all from pot to your hair.Then hand squeeze some of liquid out of hair and wrap your hair up in a towel on top of your head for two hours and later rinse the tea out of your hair and let dry.This makes your hair feel so good and does keep it darker so that the grey is not shining through.I do this twice a week.
