Hi! Welcome back to another blogpost from ‘The Hair Log’. This blogpost will concern NATURIGIN 100% Permanent Hair Colour and what ingredients to look for when you consider using certified organic natural-based hair colour instead of regular hair colour. NATURIGIN offers a new way of colouring your hair – it means 100% free of, Lauryl Sulfate, Ammonia, Resorcinol and parabens and the lowest amount of PPD in the world.
This topic is extremely relevant as to 74.9% of women in Denmark has tried colouring their hair, 5.3% of these had had an allergic or allergy-like skin reaction due to hair colour, and 10% has experienced redness, peeling and itching associated with hair dye (Source: Videnscenter for allergi, 2011).
Denmark is a small country when you compare to the US, Asia or even Australia – we know that. But nevertheless the tendency that women colour their hair with products containing harmful chemicals without hesitation, is a global problem. The concern about the environment, health, animal testing and the beauty industry in generel was some of the rationale for the birth of NATURIGIN!
Our pledge is to ensure that our hair colours includes as many mild organic and natural ingredients as possible, without compromising the performance or functionality. This blogpost purpose is to inform you about what ‘regular’ hair colour contains and convince you that it is time to make healthier choices when it comes to hair colour!
What is SLS?
A lot of beauty products such as shampoo, face wash and body wash contains SLS also known as Lauryl Sulfate. This ingredients is what makes the product bubbly and foamy. But the problem with SLS is that is can be a skin irritant and can cause dry skin and allergic reactions. When you use hair colour with SLS you can
Ammonia in hair colour
Ammonia is an ingredient used in many household cleaning products – a GOOD argument to not even consider using products that contain that ingredient in your beauty product! In a regular hair colour ammonia helps the hair follicles to swell – when the hair is swollen it becomes much more absorbent, which allows it to soak in the dye. The process makes the hair colour last longer because ammonia makes the colour soak in deeper. So when you use ammonia free hair colour like NATURIGIN, you can in some cases experience that the colour won’t last as long as ‘regular’ hair colour but in return you can be sure that you don’t harm your hair in the same way.
Why avoid parabens?
Parabens are used in most of the mainstream hair colours all over the world. But parabens can be dangerous for your health – parabens can alter hormonal balance and may cause reproductive and developmental problems.
What can NATURIGIN offer you?
What is the major difference between regular and organic hair colour?
Some people are concerned that organic and natural based hair colour can’t give the same result as you get using regular hair colour. NATURIGIN hair colour contains certified organic lemon and mandarin essential oils and 10 other pure and gentle organic extracts and natural oils, that gives your hair shine and nourishment after you coloured it. In contrast, when you are using regular hair colour you can experience having problems with dry and damaged hair afterwards. Furthermore you avoid dangerous chemicals, that in the long run can affect your health, when you choose a healthier option in hair colour products.
Last but not least we at NATURIGIN are against animal testing, which means that no animals where harmed in the production of our hair colour products and the hair colour are further more vegan!
