The most discussed questions about environmentally friendly hair dyeing are safety, intensity of coating, ways to maintain color and the number of shades. He writes about it It.

Such natural paint as henna is just all shades of red, the most fashionable color of this season. If the packaging is worth vegan and cruelty-freeThis does not mean that the dye is completely organic.

In addition, most manufacturers do not recommend using natural paints for pregnant women. Let's understand what is a safe, gentle and environmentally friendly hair coloring.

In addition to henna, there are other natural dyes. Such as walnuts, chamomile, rhubarb and even paprika, which is pre-dried and brewed with boiling water.

Many of them are used for the production of natural paints and global brands. Definitely the best Italian brand so far. Aldo coppolawho practices henna dyeing in the world's leading spas and salons at large hotel chains.

Masters Aldo coppola used a mixture of henna with yogurt and strong tea to get a rich chocolate color. In addition, this combination strengthens the hair.

Will the result be persistent
Due to the fact that natural dyes work only on the surface, not penetrating into the central part of the hair, many argue that it is impossible to achieve an intense and sustainable color. But actually it is not. In order to achieve sustainability, you need to increase the exposure time.

“If henna is present in the formula, this is another guarantee of the durability of a shade that can even paint over gray hair,” comments Elisabeth Bouadana, Global Director of Scientific Communications L'Oreal Paris.

Many stylists do not like henna because of its durability. The henna pigment molecule is quite large, and when it comes into contact with hair, it increases in volume, thereby fixing it almost tightly.

On the one hand, this is good - the hair becomes more dense to the touch, and if you use oil, it is also more elastic.

But on the other - the result is sometimes very unpredictable. If after henna try to dye your hair with chemical dyes, then the bleached blond can give a green tint.

Experienced stylists always ask about the use of henna, and if there have been cases of at least a single use of henna, they recommend waiting three to six months before dyeing with chemical paint.

Organic Brightening
Unfortunately, the transition from brown-haired to blonde with organic lightening is nothing more than a myth. Lemon juice is often used for this clarification, but this is fraught with consequences. Lemon juice can dry out your hair.

Hair lightening is the process by which natural pigment is extracted from the hair. To do this, use tools that can raise the cuticle. And other than chemical - does not exist. There are brands that specialize in herbal ingredients, for example, Natulique and Aveda, Apivita and Davines.

The composition of these funds include peroxosulfates, the content of which reaches 30%. To balance the composition add proteins of wheat or milk, hydrolyzed silk.

At the same time, brands do not lose their status. eco-friendly and continues to take care of nature, developing biodegradable packaging and formulas, reducing energy costs, thinking about the ethical component, and so on. This is a good, but still a compromise.

How safe for pregnant women
There is still no answer to this question. During pregnancy, a woman in the body hormonal changes occur, exacerbated allergic reactions and many other factors that stylists try to take into account when dyeing hair.

Many organic brands do not officially recommend dyeing hair during pregnancy and lactation. But pediatricians believe that a beautiful and happy future mother feels much better if she does not get neurosis because of the grown roots. The only thing they warn about is not to use paints during the first trimester until the placenta forms.

Paint for vegans
Many confused vegan and cruelty-free. In addition, colors are automatically credited with such marks in the category of organic. But this is not true. For example, henna for hair Lush corresponds to all specified parameters, and paints from Paul Mitchell recommended by PETA because it was not tested on animals.

But they still contain a certain amount of chemical or animal components. For example, wax. In order to understand whether the paint is suitable for use by vegans - you need to carefully read the composition on the labels.
