HAIR COLOR AND HAIR CARE IN ONE BOTTLE

 

NATURALCOLORS is rich in organic contents, nourishing vitamins and natural plant extracts. It offers healthier coloring, reduces damage, nurtures the hair, and promotes health.

NATURALCOLORS is ammonia-free, low pH, gluten free, GMO free, toxic free, and is not tested on animals.

What is hair?

Hair is made mainly from keratin protein like skin and fingernails.

What is organic?

Organic is a method of growing where no chemicals are used. Soil must be free from any chemicals for seven years before use. Every stage from seeding to harvest, making to use, is carefully controlled. Organic is healthier, protecting you, the environment, and the future.

Chemical color with hormone boosted coconut; oranges grown in mulch or GM corn may legally be called “natural”, but not “organic.” Only color with real organic contents can be called “organic.”

How does chemical hair color work?

It is the result of chemical reactions between hair, color pigment and peroxide and ammonia.

What are peroxide and ammonia?

Peroxide is bleach. Ammonia is a smelly gas dissolved in water to make a strong alkaline solution. It is often used in drain cleaner. It is dangerous. You should not breath the gas in. It has a very high pH.

What is pH?

pH is a scale of numbers used to show how acid or alkaline a liquid is.

  • Pure water is neutral (7)
  • 7 – 0 is getting more acid
  • 7 – 14 is getting more alkaline
  • The isometric (middle) point of hair is 5
  • Natural hair oil is 5 – 6
  • Most shampoos are 4 – 6
  • NATURALCOLORS is 8.5
  • Damaged hair is 9.5 – 10.5
  • Chemical color is 10.5 – 12.5
  • Hair starts to breakup from 11
  • NATURALCOLORS pH is 8.5. Chemical color is 10.5. The difference between a pH of 8.5 and 10.5 is not 2 it is 20. Jumps are 8.6, 8.7, 8.8, etc. like the scale used for earthquakes.

    Very high pH burns hair, skin and fingernails. This is one reason why colorists wear gloves. It is also why it can feel itchy or hot when your hair is colored with chemical hair color. It dries the hair out. It is one of the main causes of split ends.

    Why are peroxide and ammonia used in hair color?

    Peroxide is used to lighten hair. Ammonia is used to open the hair cuticle.

    What is the hair cuticle?

    It is the outside part of the hair shaft. It is made from dead cells overlapping in layers. It is like scales of a fish. It gives the hair strength and protection. It does not give hair its color. Hair color is underneath.

    How does chemical color get in to hair?

    It uses high pH ammonia to force open the cuticle to allow the color in.

    Chemical vs. NATURALCOLORS

    CHEMICAL COLOR

    NATURALCOLORS

    High harmful pH (10.5)

    Lower healthier pH (8.5)

    Takes hair over its middle point

    Does not take hair far from its middle point. Closer to pure water after rinsing

    Contains ammonia and other harmful chemicals

    Free from ammonia and other harmful chemicals

    Contains high amounts of PPD

    Low % of PPD (Avg. 0.6% in approved range of 0.01% – 2.0%)

    Coloring changes chemical structure of hair, stripping it of vital nutrients and condition

    Changes color without changing structure of hair. Adds nutrients and conditions. Acts as a conditioner

    Creates harsh demarcation line between new hair growth and hair colored before

    No demarcation line. The pigments are natural, so the results are natural too

    Harsh chemical contents leave hair damaged, dry and brittle

    Organic contents nourish and condition, leaving hair healthier, staying shiny and glossy

    Muddy finish

    Clean, fresh, vibrant finish

    Highly irritant

    Less itchy gentle protein base

    Risk of allergic reaction / anaphylactic shock

    Hypoallergenic suitable for asthmatics

    What is special about NATURALCOLORS pigments?

    Each tone of color is made from 124 – 154 top quality items, treated and stabilized individually, to create the perfect pigment. Each organic part is blended to produce natural pigments instead of using high levels of PPD.

    How does NATURALCOLORS get in to hair?

    NATURALCOLORS has lower pH compared to chemical hair colors with ammonia.  Applying heat is necessary to open the hair cuticle in uncolored hair.  To get color in to your uncolored hair with a low pH your hair is held in a substance that acts as a moisturizer.

    Why NATURALCOLORS low pH is so good

    NATURALCOLORS low pH does not open the pores of the scalp. So chemicals cannot seep in to the blood stream. When chemicals get in the blood stream they end up in the liver. The body cannot clean these from the liver because the chemicals that make chemical color stick to hair make it stick to the liver. This is one reason why breast cancer grows year by year.

    How does heat open the cuticle?

    Heat opens hair cuticles in the same way as the pores of your skin open in a sauna.

    Is heat important to how the color works?

    Yes. It is important to follow the instructions carefully.

    There are a few things to think about when using NATURALCOLORS to make sure you get the best result.

    Some people may react to NATURALCOLORS. Although our formulas do not contain ammonia and other harmful chemicals some people may react to its natural contents e.g. wheat protein. A patch test should be made two days before use.

    Patch test

    1. Mix a small amount of Color Gel with Colorfix.
    2. Dab a dime-sized amount of this mixture behind your ear or inside forearm.
    3. Check the area two days later. Do not use NATURALCOLORS if there is any rash, swelling or irritation.

    The importance of applying heat

    Chemical hair colors have harsh chemicals and a high pH. Both are used to open the hair cuticle and force color into the hair. This is damaging to your hair, scalp and health.

    NATURALCOLORS pH is very low. It cannot open the hair cuticle with a high pH like chemical colors. Instead, NATURALCOLORS uses heat to open the cuticle and penetrate the color. Heat opens the cuticles of the hair in the same way as a sauna opens the pores of your skin. There is no itch and no damage to your hair or scalp. This is a much healthier approach than traditional chemical color, for your hair, your scalp and your health.

    Instructions

      1.  BEFORE USING NATURALCOLORS
      A patch test must be made the first time NATURALCOLORS is used.

      The hair must be clean and free from styling products (i.e. Gels, Waxes, Coloring Sprays, etc.) These products can stop the color from working properly. Make sure to shampoo the hair, (but do NOT condition the hair).

       

      1.  PREPARING NATURALCOLORS
      Decide on the amount of color needed. You can mix the Color Gel and the Colorfix in the bowl provided and apply with the brush or you may mix the Color Gel into the Colorfix bottle, shake well, and apply directly from the bottle.

       

      1.  APPLICATION AND PROCESSING TIMES FOR NATURALCOLORS
