Abstract: Loss of colour in hair is due to varied reasons like genetic influence, effect of environmental factors, use of alcoholic preparations, etc. Though the permanent synthetic hair dyes are available in different colour ranges and retain natural lustre, they have the chief disadvantage of producing hypersensitive reactions in some individuals. In the present investigation various combinations of powdered leaves, fruits and flowers of dye yielding and hair care plants like Henna, Indigo, Bhringraj, Amla, Catechu and Centella were evaluated for their colouring and sensitivity reactions. Henna and Indigo formulation was found to be suitable natural colorant.
