Updated: Jul 9, 2018

Is there really an organic hair color out there to cover gray hair?


The season is changing and so should one's organic hair color routine. Words are thrown around on social media like, #balayage, #shadowroots, #highlights, #lowlights, #henna, and #organichaircolor which can leave the average hair color client wondering what exactly it is they want in a color service.  Knowing the appropriate language when going into a salon will give you a better understanding of what to expect from a hair color service.


Balayage

Balayage is the French word for sweep or paint.  So, your stylist will hand paint your hair with a sweeping motion.  This technique with give a more natural, softer, and less noticeable regrowth line.

Let’s tackle the hair color techniques: balayage, shadow roots, highlights, and low lights.  Balayage is the French word for sweep or paint.  So, your stylist will hand paint your hair with a sweeping motion.  This technique with give a more natural, softer, and less noticeable regrowth line. Shadow roots is a technique where your roots will be a different color from the rest of your hair.  Highlights are creating lighter pieces of hair that can separated by foils or balayaged.  Low lights are darker pieces of hair placed into foils or balayaged.  There are many factors that come into play when choosing the appropriate color for each client.  A client’s skin tone, eye color, natural hair color, and percentage of grey are all important factors when your stylist creates a custom formula for your hair color.


Organic hair color means...

Clients that are looking for hair color that does not contain: sulfates, gluten, parabens, formaldehyde, PPD, MEA or DEA, Triclosans, Propylene glycol, carcinogens, Phthalates, toxic materials, heavy metals, pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides can still have their hair colored.

Next, a little bit about organic hair color.  Synthetic hair color that claims to be organic typically means that it is NOT created with materials that could create sensitivities to people.  Clients that are looking for hair color that does not contain: sulfates, gluten, parabens, formaldehyde, PPD, MEA or DEA, Triclosans, Propylene glycol, carcinogens, Phthalates, toxic materials, heavy metals, pesticides, fungicides, or herbicides can still have their hair colored.   The only hair color that could be truly organic is henna.  Henna is an all natural plant based alternative to synthetic hair color.  Henna literally stains the hair and typically fades in 8-12 weeks.  One serious consideration to think about when choosing henna for your hair is that, once you have henna on your hair, you cannot use synthetic hair color.  It will not give you predictable results.


A thorough consultation with your stylist about your sensitivities should clear up any concerns you may have about using synthetic hair color.  Also during a consultation, show your stylist a few photos of hair styles and hair colors that appeal to you.  Those images speak volumes and can be used as a spring board to create a beautiful new shade using a different technique that you haven't experience yet in the salon.
