Beauty: Hair Coloring Safety?

http://eluxemagazine.com/beauty/10-of-the-best-natural-hair-dyes/

“”..But as much as we may love them, there’s no denying that all permanent hair colours contain a cocktail of chemicals–the trick is choosing the least toxic mix.

The most common – and dangerous – of these chemicals is probably PPDs (p-Phenylenediamine), which has been linked to bladder cancer, lung, kidney and nervous system disorders and severe allergic reactions. It’s almost impossible to formulate a hair colourant without PPDs, however; the main thing to watch for, in this case, is the concentration of the chemical. In mainstream supermarket brands, it can be as high as 5-6%, whereas for brands that claim to be natural, it can often be less than 1%, and yes, that difference does mean a lot: it’s the difference between, say, smoking a pack of cigarettes and being beside someone having a smoke.

Other chemicals to watch for include the following:

“..If you’re a chemical ingredient junkie, here’s some of what should be avoided in conventional hair dyes: ammonia, peroxide, PPDs (para-phenylenediamines, the chemical that creates color and is widely thought to be carcinogenic), coal tar (the FDA issued a warning about it being a possible cancer risk back in 1993), lead, toluene and resorcinol…” Here’s a list of seven brands I’ve heard are quite pure. Most are widely available but I’m including their manufacturer’s websites so people can do their own research and ingredient-label-reading before using. Several of these brands are also available at Naturalhairdye.com, which has an interesting decision guide to help consumers make educated choices.

Using Natural Hair Dye to Cover Gray: 3 Things You Need to Know AUGUST 18, 2015 greenbeautyteam.com
“..Using natural hair dye to cover gray completely is unrealistic. If you, like the customer I mentioned earlier, would rather saw your legs off at the knees than live with gray hair, or were simply hoping I would tell you all about some incredible, permanent, non-toxic hair color brand you could run out and buy today, this article is probably going to be a bit of a letdown…

3. ACCEPT THAT IT IS NOT GOING TO COVER ALL THE GRAY.

Nor are you likely to achieve a highly specific, consistent shade of color every time. The technology simply doesn’t exist (yet) in the world of non-toxic chemicals. Accept it now, and make life much easier for yourself and those around you.

If applied correctly, natural hair color will almost certainly give you some decent coverage of the grays, along with rich color, and a hefty dose of shine. Adjust your expectations accordingly, and you’re much more likely to be happy with the results…”

A Safer Way to Color Your Hair {with Madison Reed} healthstartsinthekitchen.com
“..eating a healthy diet, staying hydrated and taking care of my skin, has kept me looking much younger than my peers. My decision to color my hair wasn’t one that I made lightly, I spent countless hours researching the different natural hair color options, and perhaps even more time experimenting with my own hair using several different methods.

And I have to admit, much of my experimentation ended in giant messes, alligator tears and less than optimal results…”

Ditch the Chemicals — 7 Ways to Color Your Hair Naturally BY Annmarie Skin Care annmariegianni.com
“…Coloring Your Hair Naturally

Turns out we can use a lot of natural ingredients—some of which we can find in our kitchens—to create new hair color. It depends on what color you’re looking for, how intense you want it, and how much time you want to spend.

Keep in mind that natural color products are not the same as chemical color products. They don’t usually last as long, you won’t be able to completely change your natural color, and the color may be slightly different than you imagined. (Of course, that often happens in the salon, too!)

It may take some time and experimentation to get the color you’re looking for, but meanwhile you’ll actually be doing something good for your hair.

A helpful tip: If you’re not sure you’re brave enough to try the following dyes on your entire head of hair, save some from your next trim or cut off a few locks and test a small amount of natural dye first.

Another helpful tip: Always rinse out your color with apple cider vinegar to help the color last longer. Try rinsing with a vinegar/water solution, or mix one-tablespoon apple cider vinegar with about a cup of water in a spray bottle and apply after coloring hair—don’t rinse.

If you’re not into making your own, there are a few brands of natural dye out there. Here are a few that look good to us:
