In this week’s video, I attempted one of the suggestions given to me by one of you guys! Beet juice for hair color – does it actually work? I put this to the test in this week’s video. I’m pretty excited about this challenge, as I was really wanting to attempt to use beets to color my hair.
I have naturally auburn hair, and try to brighten it regularly with natural herbal hair color. My box of NaturColor usually runs me about $10 at the local health food store, so being able to save money with a beet and some coconut oil appeals to me.
Everything I read online said to just pour beet/carrot juice straight on the hair. I thought this might be kind of messy, and wanted a way for it to stay on the hair better. So I decided to whip up some coconut oil to make a good paste that did really well on my hair.
Watch the video here so that you can see how it all went down..
How To Color Hair With Beet Juice

So what do you guys think? Did it really work? Is it worth it to color hair naturally this way? Here are the before and after pics.
