Ditch the Harsh Ingredients and Opt for a Natural Choice in Permanent Hair Color

There have always been natural hair color options available, such as henna, and other plant based products, but hair color options are usually limited, and of course the hair color isn’t permanent. If you’ve had a lack luster experience with organic hair dyes, or have been wary of its quality and effectiveness, the innovations in natural hair color products may change your mind. Loreal’s INOA and Organic Color Systems are among the few new natural color lines that are not only organic and ammonia free, but they’re permanent, vibrant, and leave hair healthy and shiny.

Traditional hair dye contains high amounts of ammonia which can not only be harsh on hair itself, but can dry out your scalp, irritate your eyes, and for some may cause dizziness or headaches. Ammonia also has a strong chemical smell that can make the hair coloring experience unpleasant. These are sacrifices many are willing to make for the benefits of effective permanent hair dye. (Permanent hair dye permanently colors hair and offers full grey coverage, whereas demi and semi permanent hair color last 4 to 6 weeks and only offer grey blending.) But with the latest organic, permanent hair colors, you can have the best of both worlds with an effective product that is free of harsh ingredients.

Not only can you avoid ammonia and other alllergens like PPD and PPT (petroleum based aniline dyes), but you can also enjoy the benefits of healthy, organic ingredients that improve the condition of your hair and scalp. The color line, O.C.S. (Organic Color Systems) has hydrolyzed wheat protein to strengthen hair, chamomile to soothe the scalp, and antioxidants from orange and grapefruit to repair and prevent damage from free radicals. Other awesome, organic lines that now include permanent hair color include Aveda, EcoColors, and Mastey.

Celebrities are even opting for organic hair dyes, with O.C.S. winning the”Your Hair Award” and receiving accolades for their red carpet popularity, “Adored by celebrities and the Your Hair team alike, we love this range has all you need to enjoy organically beautiful hair every day.” O.C.S. has also been featured in magazines including Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Cosmopolitan.

Vibrant and long lasting color doesn’t have to contain harsh ingredients and allergens anymore! With the latest innovations in organic hair dye, smart women and celebrities alike are opting for a more natural choice for their hair color needs.
