I'm fascinated with the idea of being able to dye my hair with less harmful products. I remember as a child and I used to get in the beauty salon with my mom and I felt like dying and almost choked with the smell of dye.
I think that was one of the reasons for my allergies, apart from everything else. By the way, now we're on vacation and I was able to see one of the latest treatments in hair color in Europe. You can watch my video here (It's in spanish for now)
Whether you paint your hair at home or go to a hairdressing salon, you should consider these tips so you're well informed.
- Women who are pregnant or think they might be, they should consult with your doctor what type of product to use in case you want to bleach your hair
- Test a small amount of dye on the arm before placing it on the scalp to test if there is an allergic reaction to the product.
- Never let the dye longer than indicates the product
- You need to rinse your hair very well with water to remove the dye once the time of application is over.
- Never mix different products, avoid homemade preparations as they may cause skin reactions.
- Do not make two dye on the same day.
- The dyed hair suffers more sun exposure by the attack on the cuticle causing the dye. Moisturizers are recommended during the summer.
- During the summer the color of the dye is deteriorated faster.
These are the brands I got already on the market that are good for your hair:
- Herbatint ($10 )
- Light Mountain ($16 )
- Surya Henna ($7 )
- Rainbow Henna ($8 )
- Morrocco Method Simply Pure Henna
- Color Me Naturally by Aubrey ($16 )
