Dear Sister,

All of the hair dyes are halaal. Feel free to use them.

AbuDawud Book 028, Hadith Number 4191.
Chapter : Hair dye.

Narated By Abu Hurairah : The Prophet (pbuh) said: Jews and Christians do not dye (their beards), so act differently from them.

AbuDawud Book 028, Hadith Number 4192.
Chapter : Hair dye.

Narated By Jabir b. 'Abd Allah : Abu Qatadah was brought on the day of the conquest of Mecca with the head and the beard white like the hyssop. The Apostle of Allah (pbuh) said: Change this with something, but avoid black.

AbuDawud Book 028, Hadith Number 4200.
Chapter : Black dye.

Narated By Abdullah ibn Abbas : The Prophet (pbuh) said: At the end of time there will be people who will use this black dye like the crops of doves who will not experience the fragrance of Paradise.
