In “clean beauty”, hair dyes are also going green. To meet the demand of eco-responsible consumers, cosmetics brands do not hesitate to rework their products. Natural coloring is the perfect alternative to chemical dyeing, which has long been decried. The latter is indeed composed of synthetic pigments mixed with an oxidant, often ammonia or ethanolamine, known to be endocrine disruptors and can also be a source of allergies.
To change color without risk to health, healthy alternatives exist: vegetable or mineral coloring. The first is made from dyes extracted from plants. The best known example being henna. Mineral coloring, on the other hand, incorporates stabilizing elements that allow better control of the result. Free of chemical ingredients, it does not penetrate the hair fiber, which limits its breakage. Thus, in addition to coloring, it acts as a treatment that hydrates, nourishes and protects the lengths.
A priori, all women (and all men) can use natural coloring. This method is particularly suitable for people allergic to conventional chemical coloring, pregnant women or people who have undergone heavy drug treatments such as chemotherapy. It can reproduce many colors provided that they exist in nature (brown, chestnut, chocolate, mahogany, ebony).
