“Green” Hair Color
“Green” Hair Color?
Ever since I changed my hair color from blonde to brunette…I’ve missed being blonde. I think the old saying may be true. “Blondes have more fun!” (No offense to you beautiful brunettes out there!) So I decided to go back to my trusted hairstylist, Christine, at Richard’s Galt Mile Salon who uses safe, organic hair color. Before I decided to go back to Christine, I spent a good 2 to 3 hours researching organic hair color. I found that although many hair colors claim to be safe, there are still unsavory ingredients in them. Most hair colors, including those found in the drugstore, contain harmful chemicals which absorb into your body. I used to dye my mother’s hair (way before I knew how bad it was.) I wish I knew then what I know now!
Christine uses Sylk hair color. Sylk is ammonia free and uses amino acids (similar to those found in the body) to lighten hair. She showed me the hair color after she mixed it and it was a light greenish shade similar to avocado….and it smelled awesome (minty!) Most commercial hair colors have a toxic smell which can be quite unpleasant. I got a full head of blonde highlights in my chestnut brown hair. It came out looking beautiful and I don’t have to worry about any bad reactions to the dye! Picture coming soon!
If you live in the South Florida area and would like to find out more about Christine and the organic hair color she uses (and is an expert at applying, by the way), please send me a message through the Contact Page and I will be happy to give you her information. If you have a horror story about using commercial hair dye or you already go to a stylist who uses organic hair color, please share your story by leaving a comment.
Until next time stay natural….stay beautiful….go green (with your hair color!)
