Hair Dye - Green Beautifying Tip Brought to you by Ideal Bite
Is your black (blonde, gray) history showing? Try eco hair dyes next time you wanna change your dark roots (or any colored 'do, for that matter), so you can look fierce as a Mandinka warrior without the caustic chems in normal dyes.
- It's healthier than watching a 12-hour miniseries in one sitting. Studies link the common hair dye ingredient coal tar to bladder cancer and lymphoma.
- Hair worthy of a 704-page novel. (Well, maybe not 704 pages...) Typical dye ingredients such as ammonia can dry out hair to the extreme. These won't. And because the colors come from minerals and plants, they look far from synthetic.
- Like LeVar Burton's loincloth, it's biodegradable. When ingredients such as ammonia, chlorine bleach, and coal tar wash down the drain, they don't disappear - but with eco-ingredients such as henna and wheat germ that's not such an issue.
Jen From Renewable Choice Says: I try to be an 'all natural girl' as much as possible and would never chemically treat my hair- not only is it bad for me, it's bad for the environment. Luckily we are all blessed with sunshine on an almost daily basis, so if lightening/highlighting your hair is what you're after simply spend a few minutes in the sun every day and you will definitely see results. For us blondes, or even those who want blondish highlights, try using a mixture of chamomile tea and lemon juice on your hair before sun exposure to intensify the process. Truth is, you are all beautiful the way you are, regardless of any 'beautification' treatments you may try. ~Jen
