The FDA regulates cosmetics via the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act and the Fair Packaging and Labeling Act, neither of which define the term "organic." In other words, if you see hair dye that isn't henna and it claims to be organic or natural, it's "most likely still employing synthetic ingredients for it to work," Dr. Aral says. The good news: Hair dye doesn't have to be organic or natural in order to be safe, and there are other ways to be both health_ and eco_conscious when it comes to coloring your hair.
Pretend you're in the OR and lay out all of your tools like you're ready to operate. You won't have to stop and scramble mid_process, which could lead to accidents (as in leaving the dye on too long!). Read through the box's instructions beforehand, too, "to get your bearings," Hill suggests. Invest in a color brush. Squirting the dye out and spreading it all over your hair may be easy (and fun!), but this method can be messy and imprecise. Instead, play salon colorist : Mix color in a bowl and paint on with a color brush for the most even, professional finish, testers say.
