When hair color first started to appear in the market, the main active ingredient in them was ammonia, a very potent chemical that changed the fundamentals of the hair frolics, and when I said changed I meant damaged it permanently. Just in last few years, most hair color makers are now offering hair color without the ammonia in them, but does that mean it is all good now? Not really, see, most of them took ammonia out but replaced it with other chemicals like phenylenediamine (PPD), a chemical widely used in the newest type of hair dyes, even those that claim to be natural. It's a popular ingredient because it helps the new color to look natural and to withstand numerous washings without fading. There are some concerns with this ingredient. The main concern with this ingredient is that it is an allergen, and can create difficult skin reactions on the scalp, ears, or neck-wherever the hair dye comes into contact with your skin.

According to the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH)

  • PPD is potentially capable of causing multiple toxic effects following skin contact.
  • Data from studies of both humans and animals are sufficient to demonstrate that PPD has potent skin-sensitizing properties.
  • Several cases of contact dermatitis have been reported following occupational exposure to dyes containing the chemical.
  • Studies have also identified the chemical as the third most common ingredient, after fragrances and preservatives that can cause contact dermatitis from cosmetics (mainly skin-care products, hair preparations and colorants, and facial makeup products).

    According to American cancer society, "Many American women, as well as a small but increasing number of men, use hair dyes. You may have heard rumors about a link between using hair dye and getting cancer. Many studies have looked at hair dyes as a possible risk factor for various types of cancer." Sounds scary enough? Well, it should. When I read that, I realized, I needed to do something about it, and I did.

    I started researching how to make all natural plant-based hair color, after a few months of trial and error I figured out the ways, and I am happy to report, my own creation is safer, better and brings out the natural shine of the hair.

    The most ironic thing is, they are not hard to make, the ingredients are not hard to find, and best of all, instead of doing long-term damage, they actually do wonder for your hair and scalp.

    Do I have your attention now? Then let's get to work and let's discuss how easily you can get started on this new journey of all natural hair dye for you and your loved ones.

    I broke this book down into two parts. The first part is all about your own hair, the care it needs, the color charts you need to know about, what and how to color your hair. From chapter "Recipes and Options" I discuss the ingredients and process of making all natural hair color and how to enjoy your new found hobby.

    After reading you will be able to have a clear understanding of the most popular natural hair dye and hair colors, but more importantly you will be able to make determination of how to pick the right color for each type of hair, and lastly you will be able to make your own beautiful Henna, and many other natural hair colors.

    Enjoy your all natural shiny and vibrant new hair color.
