You’ve gone to organic fruits and vegetables, organic milks and cheeses, organic soaps and cosmetics – but organic hair colour? Does it really work? Should you try it? And will you get the results you want? Let’s find out!
As we learn more about the dangers of chemicals, especially when ingested or applied topically, many savvy consumers are leaving risky products behind. But, it seems, hair colour has managed to remain a mainstay for millions. Each year, people spend £203 million on dye and colouring services.
Often, people who frequent farmers’ markets to ensure their produce is untouched by chemicals get their hair treated every six weeks. Why? Because we often don’t stop and think about what we’re putting on our heads.
Traditional dyes contain ingredients like ammonia, formaldehyde, sodium laurel sulphates and parabens. Researchers have failed to find conclusive evidence that hair dyes cause cancer, but they acknowledge that it is possible. The long-term effects of using these products is unknown. For more and more people, this is not a risk they’re willing to take.
But at the same time, colouring your hair can make you feel invigorated and, perhaps, younger. It can be a once-every-six-weeks boost of confidence, and it can give you the opportunity to explore new looks. If this appeals to you, you may find organic hair colour to be the ideal solution. Here’s why:
- It smells good. Think back to the last time your stylist coloured your hair or you opened up an at-home kit. You mix the solution, apply it and… yuck. It has a distinctly chemical smell, and for some, this odor can trigger headaches. Organic products, however, often contain ingredients such as natural herbs that help impart a much (much!) more pleasant smell.
- You know what’s in it. Instead of an indecipherable list of unappealing chemicals (who wants to put formaldehyde on their head!), organic hair dyes contain ingredients like coffee arabica seed, henna leaf powder, henna, fruit powders, indigo and others. We are happy to provide you with information on ingredients so you can make choices with which you are comfortable.
- It works! Some people think that the chemically smell and burn means “it’s working.” Radico Colour Me Organic Hair Dye, for instance, is a revolutionary natural product – the first certified organic hair dye to effectively cover grey. Many chemical-laden dyes can’t even do that!
Try organic hair colour. You’ll love it from the second you apply it.
