I can sense that relief. And doubt. And ‘Henna’ flashing across your mind. That’s how I felt too.But nah, we aren’t talking ‘orangey’ locks here 🙂
It was a delight to discover a safe , effective substitute for the chemical nightmare that a hair coloring job is. I’ll be honest here. I have tried chemical coloring a few times in the past( I don’t yet have any greys, but I tend to sometimes want to darken my light brown hair). And each time the signs were there – the noxious fumes, the sting in the eyes,the gut feel that this doesn’t feel quite alright. C,mon we don’t need a scientific report to prove that chemical hair dyes might be potentially pretty dangerous and anyways, many studies have linked chemicals found in hair dyes to cancers.
So, the best bet really is to follow the ‘Safe than Sorry’ rule!
Last month, I happened to be browsing the aisles at ‘Swadeshi Jeevan – The Organic Store’ near IFFCO Metro station, Gurgaon , when I saw this product and practically hollered ‘Hallelujah’!. The deal seemed too good to be true -100% Organic Herb based color that also nourished the hair , available in shades of all kinds and it wasn’t henna! ( Not that henna isn’t great for the hair, but the orange tell-tale signs can be a different story altogether, not to mention a complete style disaster!)
