Give Me A New Hair Color, Hold The Chemicals, Thanks.
We all want to try the coolest (or warmest) new hair colors making headway into the fashion world. Even though dying your hair at home can be super easy, doing so can cause significant damage to your hair long-term. It is a bit concerning when we can’t even pronounce the chemical names in drugstore hair dying products.
Good thing there are natural and more environmentally friendly ways to dye your hair. Natural hair dyes are free from heavy metals, hydrogen peroxide, and ammonia. These safe alternatives to color treat your hair still look totally rockstar. Elevating your look has never been so easy, natural and straight up gorgeous!
