Before this experience I had never used a Natural Hair Color - or natural anything, for that matter. I always had a bad time getting my hair done. Ever since I was young I would dread getting my hair colored, but still did it regardless. I knew it wasnt natural and had to be damaging my hair and body.
A few months ago, I had just about had it. Whenever I got my hair colored my scalp and eyes would be increasingly irritated, itchy, and burnt. I could no longer take the damage done by non-organic hair products. I got on the internet and began looking for a natural alternative. I found an organic hair salon near my house and booked it...And there I was, at an organic hair salon, ready to get my hair colored with natural hair color. I never thought that would be me :)
My new natural stylist asked me what color I was looking to get, to which I gave her my old color formula. She explained that the brand of natural hair color she carries at her salon (Organic Color Systems) has a very extensive selection of colors to mix and match. Quite impressive, really.
Upon color application, I immediately realized the difference between natural hair color and conventional hair color. I had no scalp irritation! There was no horrific chemical smell, because there were no chemicals! It actually smells kind of good!
apply this natural hair color product you had to use heat, which I hadn't seen before this organic hair salon.
Once the color was all washed out, I could see the results. I was BLOWN AWAY! I never thought that an natural hair color line could give me the same results as a conventional line, but it actually gave me MUCH BETTER RESULTS! My hair was shiny and glistening and smooth and healthy. It looked like I was ready to go shoot a commercial from a standard (natural) hair coloring!
Since this first experience with natural hair color, I have never gone back. Try a natural hair color line and see the difference for yourself. You will never go back!
Thanks JoAnn for sharing your experience.
Organic Color Systems sounds promising for those of us looking for a safer hair dye. Checking into their site I did not find a complete ingredient list. I did find a list of natural ingredients and it appears that lower levels of chemicals are used. From their site: "Our claim is that OCS is manufactured “as naturally as possible without compromising its effectiveness”. They also display certifications for being cruelty free, vegan, eco friendly, ammonia free and containing certified organic ingredients.
This is a product certainly worth checking into. They have a site set up for salon professionals and you can locate a salon near you: http://www.organiccolorsystems.com/
