If you are concerned about the long-term use of synthetic hair dyes, you can have your hair colored at one of the organic hair salons available in Penang

Why use organic hair dye?

Most hair dyes contain potentially harmful ingredients such as ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, coal-tar and parabens. These toxic chemicals can lead to allergic reactions such as itching, burning, sores, redness and swelling. Studies have also shown that the long-term use of hair dyes can lead to increased risks of ovarian cancer in women as well as leukemia. Research has shown that the chemicals from hair dye can be absorbed through the skin and scalp which is why women are advised not to dye their hair during pregnancy.

Are organic hair dyes safer?  

Organic hair dyes are generally safer because they use naturally derived ingredients without the use of ammonia, peroxide, coal tar and parabens. However, you need to be aware that many organic and natural hair colour systems still contain some synthetic ingredients, so please check.

organic hair dyeSome people complain that organic and natural hair dyes do not last as long as synthetic hair dyes. The reason is that natural dyes do not contain peroxide or bleach which means the dye only coats the hair rather than penetrating and damaging the hair structure.

This might mean that you have to have a touch up your roots more frequently, but it’s a small price to pay for hair that is left in a healthy and shiny condition. What’s more, you will leave the salon without that awful chemical smell.
