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.

Whether you color 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 )
  • Naturcolor
  • Rainbow Henna ($8 )
  • Morrocco Method Simply Pure Henna
  • Color Me Naturally by Aubrey ($16 )
