Hair coloring: where are we?
Ladies … We would like to tell you about colors, shades, beauty, seduction … This will be discussed, certainly. But after … After we gave you some figures that will situate the importance of the subject: 55% of women dye their hair. Among them, 38% use of purchased and applied by their care products. And what do we know about the influence of these products on the health of those who use them? Few things. Or too, according to the views.
chemical dyes and health
If we stick to the official discourse, these dyes are all perfect, no not containing harmful products declared. However, we readily understand the reasons why it is not possible to stop there: firstly, many molecules there are few authorized are prohibited today. Proof that the eternal reassuring speeches of cosmetic manufacturers are not credible. But we must first know that in matters of hair cosmetics, there is no list of authorized products. Only refers a list of banned products. Or 90% of substances were never subject to evaluations!Suspicions about these components are becoming more numerous, some agencies are responsible for informing consumers in the state of current knowledge and taking into account the precautionary principle. Here are the results of their investigations:
– For 60 Million Consumers, September 2003:
Among 18 tested dyes, 2 are “formally advised against” 15 “deprecated”, a “correct”.
– For Öko-test, December 2004:
40 permanent dyes have been tested … all are declared “avoid”! Among 34 semi-permanent dyes evaluated, 33 are “avoid”, a “poor” …
Glurpsss … That apparently makes dyes one of the worst products on the market. The explanation is as follows: chemical dyes are not a sum of different dyes that penetrate under the scales of the hair. This is actually the combination of molecules that interact to transform the chemical structure of your hair, this virulent reaction taking place live on your person, a few centimeters from your face … and of course on your scalp, strongly irrigated.
The most often incriminated molecules are aromatic amines *, responsible for allergies. But what sets the focus of debate for four years due to a study by California researchers published early 2001 in the International Journal of Cancer : the use of these dyes containing aromatic amines is the cause of the doubling of bladder cancers among their users. The proportion is tripled when these products are applied for more than fifteen years.
* Aromatic amines include aromatic diamines and aminophénoles (on the label, the roots are found “amine” or “diamine” coupled to other particles. Examples: 2,5-toluyénediamine, diaminobenzene, ethanolamine, etc … )
We would relax the atmosphere … Come on, little reminder of some almost insignificant effects of these dyes on the hair: they stain, certainly … But always or almost a forty centimeters of hair is not renewing overnight. While drying them, weakening them.
It is not for nothing that many brands have launched in the search for natural and healthy alternatives to chemical dyes … But if some of these brands arrive at comparable cosmetic results, it’s unfortunately because they … are not natural.therefore observe the labels: you will find severe precautions, aromatic diamine, synthetic preservatives, fixatives or oxygen peroxide, indicating that the chemical reaction that we denounced at the moment occurs even in these … which preparations are of course “enriched” by coloring plant history that the claim “natural” is not completely false …
But that Satoriz done?
To whom to trust? The answer is easy: always the same! Or to those who have chosen from the beginning a true ecological approach, bio. To those who have never played with the natural word in the accommodating according to their interests and circumstances … A requirement that made us choose always the only brand offering exclusively vegetable products Logona.Choice which was confirmed to be the right when bio ** certifications could finally be affixed to cosmetics: for dyeing, Logona was the only brand to be able to benefit …
** BDIH in this case
Dyes Logona: bio … and performing?
The user (say hello to the few users), however, is entitled to access another pleasure that certification: satisfaction! And we have to inform with the same requirement on the quality of the expected results as to advise him to avoid chemical dyes. Hence the question: are these preparations comparable to chemical dyes on the nature of the colors obtained? The answer is “not entirely” for the following reasons.
Care Logona colorants (powders, mixing with warm water):
• sheathe the hair without penetrating it. The power plant dyes being less, it is therefore impossible to lighten your hair.
• When they do not exceed 30% of the hair, white hair can be covered. In addition, as in the case of white lock, the result is not always satisfactory.
• Following application, frequently distinguished in the light of discrete reflections look great, but that all users do not want a priori.
• colors change over time and gradually fade.
After much research and two patents, Logona today offers a different formula: coloring creams .
Many advantages make it a more attractive product:
• cream is ready to use and easy application.
• reflections are rich in warm colors.
• the shine obtained finally, is markedly greater than that of powder treatments.
• hair will be less volume than with powders (an advantage for some).
• Only three color options are available today (dawn, fall color, wine lees: warm colors, copper).
• it is not currently possible to obtain color “boilerplate”: blond, brown, black …
These new coloring creams are more “flashy” better able to attract a clientele in search of wild hues that cover gray hair.
Note that care can be mixed with care, creams with creams and creams with care … A clever kitchen, the results can be very pleasant for the most persevering.
Ladies and gentlemen …
And if we try to express a conclusion on these vegetable dyes? We would say that they are comparable in watercolor: they color without any cover, with subtlety, finesse. They belong to a different approach to beauty, color. In the same way that consumers of organic food does not seek to replace the letter of the products that exist in conventional, the person who wants to dye their hair naturally will become familiar with a different logic: why insist to want to clarify her hair, since it is not possible? Why refuse reflections, since they are inevitable?
Do with what nature offers, without trying to reinvent it. Adopt a vision of life compatible with its preservation, the better the taste. For vegetable dyes, beautiful effects are to discover and assert, wealthier and live the colors certainly evidence but frozen chemical dyes. Their power of seduction is all the greater. editor of Word … masculine.
