For some of us it is a no brainier. For others it is a must.
Chances are you are here because you had a chemical reaction to the hair or beard dye you have been using and had a bad reaction that might have even put you in the hospital.
Henna hair dye works for cancer patients and pregnant women, why? Simply because it is all natural.
Another reason people use henna hair dye is because they have used chemical hair dye so long it literally causes hair breakage and has to be cut so short they cannot even dye it any longer or have to dye it twice a month. This is typically why elder women have short hair. The more extreme color change or darker the chemical dye, the more damage it will cause, making hair brittle, thin and even lead to early balding.Chemical hair and bear dye can cause:
- Loss of vision if eye contact happens
- Early balding
- Contact dermatitis
- Liver damage
- Skin irritation
Henna hair and beard dye helps to repair damage hair and get back on a healthy recovery, it also ads protection from the sun and elements. You can have long hair again and you can do it with out having to redye you hair every two weeks. Hair grows slow, less than 3/8th of a inch a month. To repair hair damaged from chemical hair dyes you will have to have patients. It will take time but it is very much worth it!
Now that you understand the benefits of henna hair dye and the cons of chemical hair dye, lets toss in the fact chemical hair dyes are washed down the drains daily. With over 680,000 hair dye salons in the USA, “that’s a lot of chemicals added to our sewage” says Rod Harper, Founder of “EarthDye™”, “those chemicals have to be cleaned or worse goes into the ocean or streams”. It is not regulated by the EPA and no license is required for disposal of chemical hair dye – its readily available at any grocer or convenience store like Walgreen’s or CVS. Most hair salons curse henna hair dye because it takes longer than chemical hair dye and they want you in and out to get their hundreds of dollars fast. The faster they can do your hair the more money they can make. Another problem with hair salons is they put whatever chemical hair dye on your head they feel is the “better dye”. You as a customer have no idea of what type or what brand they are using. Hair salons are taught that henna hair dye is bad for you, when in fact it is not. It was not until the past 5 years some hair salons are changing the way they teach and adding henna hair dye as a great safe alternative and even offering henna as a hair dye service. They are rare, but they are popping up slowly. Don’t blame the salon personnel, they are taught what they are taught and do not know any better in most cases. Another thing that gave henna a bad rap, is the fact it was one of the first ingredients in hair dye when started adding chemicals.
