Delve into the delicious shades of blonde, brown or red without worrying about hair damage and allergies. How? With our top two healthy hair colour brands, that’s how. And we mean healthy as in a PPD-free hair colour, an organic hair colour and even (wait for it) an organic bleach. And we hope you’ll soon be swishing your newly coloured hair in all its regal radiance.
There are a few PPD-free hair colours out there. But there aren’t too many permanent healthy hair colours that leave your hair in a state of perpetual prettiness, such as PPD-free NATUR VITAL Colour Safe, £9.99. (PPD, para-phenylen-diamine, a chemical that fixes colour, is found in 98% of hair colours and causes 80% of allergic reactions from darker shades.) Colour Safe is strong enough to cover greys and gives you a dose of divine colour in just 20 minutes. And this healthy hair colour can help you go up to two shades lighter. More beauty bonuses: this PPD-free hair colour skips other pesky ingredients, such as ammonia, resorcinol and parabens, and spoils your hair in vitamin E and organic sunflower oil for a supple shine. NATUR VITAL Colour Safe, available in 10 healthy hair colour shades, is sold in store at Boots, Superdrug, Lloyds Pharmacy and John Bell & Croyden or online at: naturvital.co.uk.
If you’re looking for an organic hair colour with more range, Philip Martin’s Italian Organic Lifestyle’s Organic hair Colour Base, £9.98, 125 ml, seriously spoils you in shade choice with over 60 permanent hues. Free from ammonia, PPD and more, this organic hair colour will richly repair your hair with proteins and organic oils as it colours. It’s perfect for giving your hair colour an organic oompf.
Finally, for those who lust for really light locks sans the itch and the irritation, Philip Martin’s Natural Colour Lites Bleaching Powder, £28, two sachets, is a healthy way to get your hair to platinum prettiness. And we mean healthy because its citrus-smelling, secret ammonia-free formulation bestows a breakage-free blonde colour.
