Is Your Hair Colour Safe?
Caring for coloured hair:
  • Use shampoos meant for coloured hair and always use a conditioner. Hair colour interferes with natural conditioning. If your hair gets too limp after conditioning, use a leave-on conditioner or hair serum after a wash.
  • Go in for either hot olive oil or hot almond oil massage every 15 days. This means tying a hot towel for at least 10 minutes after the oil application.
  • Keep a gap of 4 to 6 weeks between two colour applications.
  • Apply hair oil before going for a swim. This will prevent further damage from chlorine in the pool water.


For hair colouring to be effective permanent hair dyes must contain both colour and a developer.

The developer lifts the outer opening of the hair known as cuticle, enabling the color to penetrate. These developers contain chemicals in the form of ammonia and hydrogen peroxide, which also cause allergic reactions. These chemicals are contained in varying concentrations in most permanent hair dyes. You choice of brand will depend on what composition is best suited to your hair and skin conditions. Chemicals in hair dye cause a degree of damage but it is considerably mild if you are darkening your hair. If you are a regular at dying your hair, you may not notice it. But women with problems of hair loss or certain scalp disorders should be extra careful in checking the chemicals which may not suit them.

Ammonia-free products - All the more expensive hair color brands are ammonia-free. Though exposure to high levels of ammonia can cause irritation, in small concentrations it is not toxic to the body. If you are not allergic to ammonia, you may go for brands with low ammonia content which can be found in most brands as it is necessary for some colors to cover gray or lighten the hair.
