    You could use Amla (aka powdered gooseberry), which is an ayurvedic hair conditioning treatment. As a side effect it darkens the hair gradually, but you should notice darker hair after the first treatment.

    You can use amla safely more than once a month.

    +1 I use amla oil and it has definatly turned my hair darker. Also try strong coffee rinses. I love these. And don't forget to hold onto those used coffee grinds and add honey & oil to make a body scrub.

    I love Amla Oil I bought mine from https://www.fromnaturewithlove.com/product.asp?product_id=AYUROILAMLA&searchflag=1
    its not that expensive. They also sell the powdered Amla but I usually get the powder from the local Indian market.
