Organic hair color explained:
Everyone has heard one time or another about the dangers of hair dye; even though those warnings are to encourage safety, not to scare you. At the same time it’s enough to make some a bit hesitant.
So what are your options? Dying your hair organically with fewer chemicals and more natural ingredients, for peace of mind and healthier hair. How does the color payoff and longevity compare? Here’s our opinion on organic hair color and whether it’s truly better for your hair.
Our guests usually ask us if organic is better then regular color, and the answer is yes!
Organic hair color is made with organic botanicals that are grown without the use of pesticides and chemicals.
There is definitely a difference between conventional and organic hair color. Organic color has fewer chemicals and usually no ammonia. Ammonia is the ingredient that conventional color formulas use to penetrate the hair cuticle and deposit color. It has the potential to create damage and weaken the hair, that’s why people with sensitive hair find organic hair color to be a better, healthier option.
Not all organic hair color are completely natural. Our choice relies on botanical ingredients and naturally derived ingredients. They say that the only truly 100% natural hair color is henna, but even henna has some serious disadvantages. Henna-based dyes are actually pretty harsh on the hair because they contain metallic salts.
Is organic color for me?
When considering whether organic color is right for you, you’ll want to go off of the state and color of your hair. Being that organic color is less harsh than conventional color, those with dry, damaged hair might find it a practical option. Not only is it a healthier choice for the hair, color grasps better to weakened hair.
Not only is it better for the hair it is also a healthiest option for someone with allergies, pregnant, nursing and health conscious individuals.
