I have always enjoyed “playing” with my haircolor and changing up the length and style. I’ve had my hair straight, permed, long, short, highlighted, colored, bangs, no bangs – lots of variety. It’s fun to experiment and try new things.
Having said that, along the way I discovered how expensive and time consuming hair coloring at the salon could be. So I decided to try to find the best natural haircolor out there. Why? Because I had read about the negative effects of the ingredients used in most over-the-counter hair dyes and really wanted to go the natural route if at all possible. If I was going to color my hair, I wanted to do it with the least harmful product I could find.
When checking hair dye ingredient lists, these are the top ones to avoid:
– Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
– PPD (p-Phenylenediamine)
These ingredients can cause allergic reactions, skin rashes and irritations, effect hormone balance, have potential cancer causing effects, and more.
If you are willing and interested in trying a natural haircolor product, this list can help you. Just remember, everyone’s hair is different and what works for one person might not work as well for another. You may have to experiment to find your best fit. So far, my favorite is EcoColors.
*NATURIGIN – Great for adding extra depth to your hair-coloring just like your hairdresser does. Leaves hair looking healthy and nurtured.
*MADISON REED – Natural looking haircolor with brilliant shine. Covers stubborn grays. Created in Italy.
*NATURTINT – Natural plant-based ingredients. Botanical extracts to revitalize hair. 29 mixable shades to find the best one for you.
*ECOCOLORS – Doctor recommended, professional hair color. Gluten free, sulfite free, PPD free, no propylene glycol, no parabens, no resorcinol, no heavy metals, no animal testing. Beautiful, lasting color.
Along with these four, there are many other hair color brands out there that might work very well for you. This will give you a start. Have fun being creative and spontaneous!
