All permanent chemical hair dyes contain Para-dyes such as para-phenylenediamine (PPD) and p-amino phenol. It is not possible for them to work so quickly and effectively without these chemicals. Unfortunately these compounds are not good for us and this is why it is important to limit our exposure to them and to other dye chemicals. Note that the darker the shade the more Para-dyes it contains.
The Low Chemical dyes already contain extremely low amounts of chemicals, but you can further reduce these quantities by mixing the Low Chemical shades with the Love My Hair 100% herbal colours. For example, if you have completely grey roots and you want black hair, you can make a dye mixture of half Low Chemical Black and half 100% Herbal Soft Black. This will still give you the grey coverage you need with even fewer chemicals! You can also experiment with reducing the Low Chemical component of your mixture until you find a ratio that works best for you.
- Wait at 2-4 weeks before using Love My Hair Low Chemical dyes on previously dyed hair and vice versa. You can use this product after using herbal dyes and other chemical dyes.
- Do a skin patch test to check for allergies.
- You must do a strand test before dyeing all your hair, especially if you have bleached, permed or straightened hair. This will also determine the application time.
- Apply to freshly washed, dry hair.
- Use a non-metallic bowl and spoon/spatula to mix the dye.
- Slowly pour 300-350ml warm water to the dye powder and mix to a smooth consistency similar to that of custard.
- Cover your shoulders with a towel and put on the gloves.
- Apply dye to your hair in sections using your fingers, starting at the roots and working your way to the ends.
- Pile your hair on top of your head and wipe any dye off your ears and hairline.
- Cover your head with cling-wrap and wrap a towel around your head. The cling wrap will create warmth and ensure the dye is packed firmly onto your roots.
- Leave the dye on for 20 - 50 minutes but no longer than 50 minutes. The longer you leave the dye on the deeper the final colour.
- Rinse your hair thoroughly until the water runs clear, then shampoo and condition.
The indicated colour is a guide, the final colour will vary slightly depending on your original colour and application time.
- 100g is enough for 1 application on collar to shoulder-length hair, depending on thickness.
- To re-touch roots, mix up ½ a packet, depending on hair thickness and length of roots. Seal the packet to use the remainder of the dye powder for the next treatment.
- After the dye has been mixed with water, any left-over mixture must be discarded.
- It is best to avoid all chemical dyes during pregnancy. If you want to dye your hair, rather use the Love My Hair 100% Herbal range.
- Henna, PPD (para-phenylenediamine), Barium Peroxide, 2-Nitro Paraphenylenediamine, Para Amino Phenol, Rose Petal Powder, Amla, Bhringraj, Shikakai, Citric acid and Sodium Sulphate.
1 out of 2 people would recommend this product09/12/2019, By CathUnfortunately FTN sent the wrong product to the customer. She thought she was applying the herbal dye and left the dye for too long on her hair, which resulted in a very dark colour and damaged hair.29/01/2018, By lieslI will never ever use this product again! I followed all instructions, but ended up with almost black hair which is so brittle and coarse. i can hardly get a comb through my hair and it is falling out every time i put my hand through my hair. Not even coconut oil helped.
Response from supplier:
Liesl had been using the 100% herbal dye for ages and loved how this worked. An error was made when Liesl ordered her favourite dye from FTN and she was sent the Low chemical dye which sadly might have caused an allergic reaction.
