Problems with Natural Hair Color and Perms

by Laurie
(Lancaster CA)

I used Naturtint for years and was very happy with it. It covered my gray well and I liked the colors. However, my hair was like straw, dried and damaged. It seemed to be in good condition as it grew out, but then would become damaged. I did not know why.

Finally, a new hairdresser pointed out that perms have a chemical base and natural hair colors have a metal base. Those two could conflict with each other and damage the hair. My hair was growing out fine, but when the permed hair was colored or the colored hair was permed, that's when the damage occurred. Reluctantly, I switched to Clairol color, which I don't like as well, but my hair damage has ceased. It's something to think about if you need perms.


Thanks for telling us about your experience Laurie. I am hoping that one of our readers or possibly a hair dresser who has experienced this problem and can provide some help.

From your scalp to the ends of your hair moisturizer with Olive Oil hair moisturizer to eliminate dryness. My hair dresser recommended it and liked my hair much better. Good luck.

Not everyone's hair is the same. Perhaps very curly hair grabs color (no matter the source) differently. I don't know. The person who mentioned damaged hair with the natural hair color product and the perm is on to something.

I do not perm my hair to make it straight or curly and it is healthy with a tendency towards dryness. I moisturize frequently and have used mostly Aveda and other fine products. I enjoy the natural texture of my hair and keep it cut short for manageability and low maintenance style. However, I do color.

My problem now is traveling so much I can't find my usual organic natural color product. So, I am going back to the top brand that was best for my hair, according to my former Aveda stylist. The product warning gives me pause because it says using the product over or after a compound henna product may damage my hair!

I can't find the actual ingredients of some of these natural hair color products online. The one I used most recently I bought at Whole Foods in Atlanta, and at Rainbow Foods in San Francisco. Does anyone know whether this product or similar products contain compound henna?

Unfortunately, when I packed I did not save the box from the last use about 8 weeks ago. Job hunting in a highly competitive and discriminatory market that favors young looking women, I need to look my best.

Contact me with real information please if you know about the ingredients of these natural color products - Thanks!
