What Is Organic Hair Dye?

Organic hair dyes

Organic is a term used to define a farming practice before plant cultivation. Organic hair color is made with natural ingredients, such as plant-based pigments and oils, which are less harsh and damaging to the hair than traditional chemical hair dyes.
It's important to note that not all hair color products labeled as "organic" are 100% organic, so it's essential to read the label carefully to understand the ingredients used in the product.

looks the same but big difference

What is the difference between organic hair dye and natural hair dye?

The main difference between organic and natural hair dyes is how they are produced and regulated.

Organic hair dyes are made with ingredients grown and processed without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and genetically modified organisms (GMOs). They are also free of artificial preservatives, fragrances, and other harmful chemicals. Organic hair dyes are regulated by organizations such as USDA and must meet specific standards for organic production.

Natural hair dyes, on the other hand, are made with ingredients that are derived from nature, such as plants, fruits, and minerals. However, unlike organic hair dyes, natural hair dyes are not regulated and can contain synthetic ingredients or chemicals.

In summary, organic hair dyes are made with ingredients grown and processed without synthetic pesticides, fertilizers, and GMOs. They are regulated by organizations such as USDA. Natural hair dyes are made with ingredients that are derived from nature but can contain synthetic ingredients or chemicals.

Why do you need 100% organic hair dye?

The number one reason is Safer for your health.

Traditional hair dyes contain harsh chemicals such as ammonia, peroxide, and PPD (para-phenylenediamine), which can cause allergic reactions, respiratory problems, and other health issues. 100% organic hair dye is free of these chemicals and is considered safer for your health.

Using 100% organic hair dye ensures that your product is free of harsh chemicals and synthetic ingredients, providing a safer and more natural alternative for hair coloring.

The Science of Hair

Have you ever heard that hair can change completely every seven years? Hair has a long cycle. So your daily choices have a long-term impact on hair health.
[Anagen] Scalp hair stays in this active phase of growth for two to six years.[1]
[Catagen] This phase lasts for about two to three weeks.[1]
[Telogen] This phase lasts for about 100 days for hairs on the scalp.[1]

Permanent hair dye

Permanent hair dye removes natural color from the hair that you can’t put back and fills the hair with artificial coloring. Harsh chemicals in permanent dyes can make hair brittle and more breakable, especially over time. It could take up to four years before you see new hair growth out of damaged hair follicles, depending on the severity of your injury.

Semi-permanent Hair Dye

In contrast, semi-permanent colors only partially penetrate the structure, with most dye molecules staying outside on the surface. Semi-permanent colors don't go inside and remain only on the surface.

There are other reasons to choose 100% organic hair dye.

Environmentally friendly: Organic hair dye is free of synthetic chemicals that can harm the environment. Many organic hair dye brands are also cruelty-free, meaning they don't test on animals.
Natural look: Organic hair dye is made from natural ingredients that can provide a natural-looking color to the hair and help to enhance the natural beauty of the hair.
