Shopping: The best organic hair dyes

Want to give intensity to your hair, to hide White hair ? The coloring box is a ready-made solution. Problem, synthetic chemical hair dyes can contain oxidizing hair dyes, metallic salts, ammonia or ethanolamine… Substances that can irritate the scalp, cause eczema in sensitive people, or even further devitalize the hair fiber. Certified organic vegetable colorings are an alternative. Unlike synthetic chemical permanent colors, they do not penetrate the hair fiber, but coat it. Thus, they respect the structure of the hair and do not modify it. Better, by sheathing the hair fiber like a varnish, they form a barrier protective and add volume to the hair.

The vegetable colorings are made from powders of plants that the consumer mixes with water before applying this paste to his hair. In these colorations, we often use tinctorial plants such as henna, chamomile or turmeric and Ayurvedic plants such as hibiscus, for example. Vegetable coloring supposes respecting the water-powder dosages in order to obtain a paste that is easy to apply and to leave it on for the necessary time. It is suitable for all hair types (straight, curly, frizzy, blond, brown, etc.), for women as well as for men.
