4 Things You Must Know About Herbal Hair Colours

Don’t we all just love to look good and presentable, especially when we are making that first impression? So, how far would you be willing to go to look just awesome? Would you also be willing to try that new hair colour that everybody’s been talking about?

Gone are the days when hair colours were just used by those with white hair. Today, you can colour your hair even if you want to simply change your looks for a while. But then, should you compromise your health for it?

Using a hair colour that contains harmful chemicals like ammonia, PPD and hydrogen peroxide (bleach) takes a heavy toll on the skin and body. That is why herbal hair colour becomes significant, especially in modern times. Let’s find out the top 5 reasons one must consider for going for that superbly exotic herbal or organic hair dye.

  1. Herbal hair colour won’t cause hair damage

Herbal or organic hair colours are the safest ways to colour hair although the results might not be that outstanding. Unlike chemical based hair dyes, their lukewarm colouring results happen because nature works in subtle ways, with its own limitations, or we may say—with perfect natural balance. Herbal hair colour is, thus, a damage-free way to colour hair. They won’t contain any of the harmful chemicals like ammonia, PPD or Hydrogen Peroxide (Bleach). Try opting for any of the credible and reputed herbal hair colour brands that are offering 100% organic hair colour stains, smartly modified and mixed to impart a range of colouring shades.

  • All-herbal and organic ingredients

Before buying, go through their ingredient list very carefully. Look out for the super-exotic and time-tested Henna, Indigo, Chamomile, Bhringraj, Amla, Basil, Brahmi, etc. And make sure that it contains none of the harmful chemicals—No Peroxides, No Heavy Metals, No Ammonia, No PEGs, No PPD, No Parabens, No Mineral Oils and No Resorcinols. All these herbs go far in naturally conditioning, moisturising and treating damaged hair and scalp. The various shades come from smart combinations of Henna, Indigo and Chamomile. Herbal hair colours do not take away natural shine and strength of hair. They also protect hair from harmful UV rays and pollution.

  • Come in varied formulations for added convenience

Herbal hair colours can be formulated in numerous ways depending upon the exact requirements of its users. They can come as triple-sifted, finely crushed powders of pure herbs that have to be simply mixed with water and used, or as gel based formulations. The microfine crushing of herbs like henna and indigo release more colour more quickly as the lipid covers of their pigment cells get broken in the process. The gel based formulations come as non-drippy and easily usable hair colours. Both formulations help in effectively covering the greys, while strengthening hair and nourishing the scalp.

  • Things to be careful of

Make sure your hair colour suits your skin type and tone, or you might end up looking very funny. Every hair colour brand offers certain guides and tips at no cost to their users. Make the best use of these tips. You must not be allergic to any of the herbal ingredients present in the hair colour as it could cause rashes and itching. Decide for how long you want your hair colour to last and select accordingly. The gel based formulations generally last longer than the purely herbal ones.

Note: Do a patch test 48 hours before applying any of the colours to check if you are allergic to vegetables and pollen.

  • The pros and the cons

The pros of a herbal hair colour are—(1) No harmful chemicals are added. (2) The natural herb extracts not just protect hair from damage, but also enhance hair growth and maintain their natural shine. (3) It usually comes as recommended by doctors or as dermatologically tested.
