Best hair color for those style freaks



Sometimes it is inevitable to use hair dye. It might be to mask grays, or just for a shift, because of a dye job that went wrong. But the one thing that keeps us from plunging into the dye is the presence of harmful chemicals. The production of ammonia, to be more precise. We've put together a list of 10 ammonia-free hair color brands available in India to make life a lot easier.




Let's read about the function of ammonia in the cosmetics before looking at the disparity between ammonia-based and ammonia-free hair colors.

Ammonia acts as an additive that opens up the cuticles of your skin and allows them more absorbent during the coloring process. This helps retain the color for a long period. Yet ammonia still slowly lightens the natural hair color. 

On the other side, there are still other chemical elements of ammonia-free products. Yes, cosmetics clear from ammonia appear to be less desirable than hair colors dependent on ammonia. This is because the latter utilizes larger molecules that are not capable of penetrating the hair as thoroughly as the latter. But they don't have a pungent smell and stay longer than products based on ammonia.
Benefits Of Ammonia-Free Hair Colors
  • These are less harmful to your hair.
  • They do not damage the cuticles despite multiple uses.
  • They keep your hair soft and silky.
  • They can be used on damaged hair as well.
  • They are odorless.
  • They do not alter the internal cuticle bonds like ammonia-based hair colors.
Disadvantages Of Ammonia-Free Hair Colors
  • They tend to leave a residue on the follicles.
  • The chemicals take time to evaporate.
  • They are difficult to rinse out.
  • They are relatively less vibrant.

Before you use some hair coloring materials, always do a patch test. While all these hair colors are ammonia-free, they do produce certain chemicals such as PPD, MEA, and AMP that can cause irritation of the skin and hair damage. To prevent allergic reactions or skin irritation, do a patch test 48 hours before using any hair dye. It may also be a smart idea to look at natural alternatives such as henna.
