Water, for example, is a chemical compound. So get it out of your mind that chemicals aren't safe just because they're chemicals. There are, however, harsh and potentially toxic chemicals in some beauty products, and while there has been growing momentum in the industry to remove or minimize these ingredients, hair dye is one of the worst offenders when it comes to including some pretty shady and unnecessary chemicals.
