“Organic” Hair Color?
As they promote hair color products many companies use the names “organic’’, “natural” to promote their dyes. Those products may contain certain “organic” or “natural” ingredients: “fairy dust” with no impact whatsoever on the color result.
Sad but true: unless a tint is made of plants such as pure henna, rhubarb root, coffee, beetroot, etc., 100% Organic Hair Color is a myth.
Vegetable and plant dyes don’t do the same as chemical products. They can’t lighten hair or replace the natural hair color with a new one and the results are always unpredictable.
Just take close look at the ingredient lists of those so called “organic” hair colors. In their advertising the companies will highlight the plant extracts that are added to the chemicals that are needed for the creation of hair color products. Here is the example of a well known Permanent “Organic” Hair Color:
Today’s hair color products are safe. It is true that sensitivities and allergies can occur. They also happen with natural, organic products such as nuts, grains, shellfish, etc.
One thing that I am convinced about is that artificial hair color products belong into the hands of Professional Colorists. Only they can make the right decisions concerning possibilities, formulations, applications and their safe use on the consumers.
