Changing your hair colour is a simple method to freshen up your appearance, hide grey hairs, experiment with your hair, and have fun.
You’re undoubtedly well aware of the harm chemical hair dyes inflict to your scalp. However, the issue is deeper-seated than that. Modern hair colours are secretly harming the environment, your skin, and your hair.

Use Hair Dye that is Vegan-Friendly:
Against The Animals :
The first thing is that we adore animals. Because of this, we only use ingredients that have not been subjected to animal testing when making our products. We are dedicated to finding ethical ways to develop and test our products without causing suffering to animals.
Natural Substances :
Using vegan-friendly hair dye has several advantages, including the use of natural ingredients and concern for animals. This indicates that the overall amount of harm you do to your hair while colouring it will be reduced. Natural ingredients are abundant throughout our entire line to help hydrate and nourish your hair.
What Takes Place When Your Hair Is Dyed?
Hair doesn’t naturally absorb colour, first and foremost. Hair dyes (permanent dyes) are therefore not pigments but rather a concoction of chemicals that stimulate colour production.
You must let the dye stay in the presence of the ingredients for at least 30 minutes for a reaction to take place.
Chemical substances like: are created from coal tar and petrochemicals to make modern non-natural hair dye.
Ammonia Hydrogen Peroxide 1,2,4-trihydroxybenzene (PPD) Para-phenylenediamine
These are only a few of the chemicals used in hair colour; it is reasonable to assume that whatever you are unable to pronounce has no place in your beauty supply.
What Your Hair Is Actually Being Affected By Chemical Dyes?
Numerous studies have shown that using commercial hair dye is quite unhealthy.
Exposure to chemical hair colour exposes people to risks such as possible genotoxicity and an increased risk of bladder cancer.
There isn’t even enough study on what happens when dye chemicals are absorbed by our bodies to provide us a good picture of the potential harm.
Through the Drain :
One of the most exciting aspects of the colouring procedure is rinsing out the goop from your hair to show your gleaming new tresses; after all, who doesn’t love a big reveal? However, contaminants enter (and change) our water supply with every wash.
Nearly 80% of the metropolitan sites that the USGS (US Geological Survey) monitored had hair dye metabolites (chemical compounds) in their water supply.
Hair dye can combine with other chemicals, such as chlorine in water treatment plants, to create carcinogenic compounds, claims scientist and professor of colour chemistry David Lewis.
Use Vegan Dyes to Go Natural :
Hair colouring has been popular since the time of the Egyptian and Roman cultures. Why can’t we get along as well as our predecessors who lived in the past and used natural ingredients?
Henna is the most resilient natural dye; when combined with other plant-dyes, it yields a comparable (and significantly less hazardous) dying agent.
Henna and other herbs are used by indus valley in their line of organic, all natural semi permanent hair colour. All that is required to use these powdered colours is to combine them with water.
100% organic brown hair colour and plant-based, as certified by Ecocert
- No PPD or ammonia
- No parabens
- Easy to apply
The Vegan Society in the US has recognised Indus valley hair dyes as vegan, so you can rest assured that what you’re getting is chemical-free, natural, and safe.
Additionally, they double as hair treatment treatments and offer dual hair darkening and lightening qualities. The henna pastes actually repair any chemical damage already done to the hair.
After use, the product restores and neutralizes the damaged, brittle hair. The hair is then coloured when the herb paste gets to know it. You can use it as often as you’d like without worrying about harm because it’s completely natural.
We’ll give you one more justification for going natural: the incredible variety of colours! The indus valley colour palette includes shades for both the practical and the daring, ranging from deep brown and wine red to violet and strawberry blond!
For us, preserving the planet entails protecting all living things that inhabit it. Love Beauty and Planet does not test on animals because of this.
