Keeping your hair young and vibrant

This is because the chemicals can go through the pores in the scalp and into the bloodstream, and of course they may cause allergic reactions.

So what can you do? Increasingly there are hairdressers that use natural plant-based colour for the hair and other products such as shampoo and conditioner. Some hairdresser chains market themselves as using plant-based products, but actually include ammonia to enable the colour to fix.
