Slate’s column for ladyfolk, doubleX, recently tested 5 home hair dye kits to see which of them work the best. It seems Slate’s fancy writers are too good for Kool-Aid or RIT, which is what my friends always used when they needed a good ugly green tint; apparently Slate also wanted to test brown dyes and not ugly green ones. Of the five, the worst was the $6 “Rainbow Henna Persian Dark Brown,” while the best was a $14 Clairol product, which handily beat out a $30 kit from Frederic Fekkai.
