Organic Hair Color

Post 1 of 0

The best gifts for moms sometimes come from the most unexpected places. Have you ever considered giving your mother a total makeover? Here is everything that you need to know about the different types of dye. Though there are many hair color makers now which claim their hair dyes actually protect your hair, there are nevertheless longer-term damages they can create. Even if some higher-quality hair dyes are actually protecting, or at least not damaging your hair, there still are people who prefer to purchase organic hair color. But what does organic hair color mean? You’ll probably be surprised to know it’s something slightly different than you imagined and it can be a great source of inspiration for the best gifts for mom.

First of all, there’s no such thing as 100% organic dye, at least not in the way we might’ve imagined. Some companies even use the term “organic” to promote their products, when in fact they have nothing to do with it. These products sell themselves by proliferating about the damages some chemicals from hair dyes can have on your hair, but they omit to mention they contain the same chemicals themselves.

Nevertheless, there are companies that use natural ingredients to make their dyes. If you don’t know how to spot the differences between regular or damaging dyes and organic hair color, just avoid those products that contain severe ingredients like peroxide, lead, ammonia, coal tar, toluene, resorcinol and PPDs. You might be wondering what PPDs are. PPDs or para-phenylenediamines is the name for a chemical found in most hair dyes that is widely considered to be carcinogenic. Most hair dyes that claim they are an organic hair color product say so because they do not contain this chemical. However, there is also PTD, or para-toluenediamine, an alternative to PPD that was recently introduced in some hair dyes, though no studies have been made to test is effects yet.

If you’re very keen on organic hair color, henna is your safest bet, but the results it offers are limited in nuances and can even turn out to look weird on your hair. In most cases, users have complained that their hair had turned out more orange than they expected, and even those that used it constantly said they got different results with each application. Another option is represented by vegetable dyes, but those offer inconsistent results as well. The truly good thing about organic dyes is that they can make your hair look really healthier and shinier, but for shorter periods of time than regular permanent dyes, because they don’t penetrate the hair shaft, so each shampoo wash takes away a layer of color. All in all, it depends on your hair type to decide what sort of dye you can use. The best thing to do is to start out with a shade that is close to your natural shade.
