    Should You Go With Organic Hair Dyes?

    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.

    The Straight Truth About Organic Hair Products

    Organic Shampoo


    Organic Shampoo Crowd Using Scare Tactics

    Ya know, I’m becoming very suspicious of this “organic products crowd”. If you meet one of their advocates they are always full of wild claims and they are such zealots that they border on extremism. They always seem to want us to feel like we are killing baby kittens if we prefer products with chemicals in the ingredients.

    Don’t get me wrong, I am very much in favor of trying to lead life my life in an environmentally conscious way, when there are clear scientific facts that justify taking action. To me if it is not backed up by scientific fact it is just somebody else’s religious belief system. It is almost like they know that if they don’t stretch the truth you’ll never become a convert to their religion.

    The article below is a case in point. It is this article I ran across which claims that 60% of the chemicals that our skin is exposed can be absorbed into the body. What complete utter nonsense . . . if that be the case we would have all been dead by age two. Just think of one example, Chlorine it is in every pool that your baby swims in and is a very toxic chemical (ever forget to put those drops into the goldfish bowl?).

    Modern hair care product manufactures carefully test every product that gets marketed. You need not be afraid to use off the shelf hair care products on you and your family. Don’t fall for the kind a malarkey contained in articles like this one:

    Up to 60% of what you put on your skin (and on your children’s skin) is absorbed into the body.

    Now go read the label on your kid’s shampoo or liquid soap bottle. Dyes. Preservatives. Synthetic foaming agents. Parabens and petrochemicals. Is that the kind of stuff you want coursing through their veins?
