Herbal Hair Dyes by Aasha Herbals

Herbal Hair Dyes by Aasha Herbals People have been colouring their hair since ancient times. The main reasons for hair colouring are cosmetic: to change to a colour they like more, to cover grey hair, etc. Modern manufacturers offer a wide array of chemical hair dyes, but some people can't use them due to irritation and allergic reactions. Herbal hair dyes by Aasha Herbals are a safe alternative to chemical ones.

Most permanent and demi-permanent hair dyes contain ammonia or another alkaline agent. It opens the cuticle layer so that the active ingredients of the dye can penetrate into the hair cortex. Some dyes also contain hydrogen peroxide as a bleaching agent. Both chemicals are effective, but they have their downsides. They can damage hair strands and cause irritation to the skin. Luckily, there are natural ways to colour the hair. Different types of herbs can be used to achieve a certain colour such as henna, indigo, hibiscus, etc.

Aasha Herbals offers a wide array of herbal hair dyes formulated with henna, indigo and other herbal ingredients. Aasha Herbals is an Indian brand that produces natural cosmetics according to the best traditions of Ayurveda. Thanks to a combination of ancient Ayurvedic recipes and the latest technology, consumers get safe and effective cosmetic products free of potentially irritating synthetic ingredients.

Aasha Herbals produces a variety of cosmetic products including coconut oil, flower waters, skin care products, soap, toothpaste and hair masks, but its natural hair dyes probably are the brand's most popular products. Hair dyes by Aasha Herbals are formulated with henna and indigo and enriched with other plant-derived ingredients. They not only help to achieve a deep, natural colour, but also make the hair healthier and restore its natural shine. Aasha's hair dyes are free of ammonia, hydrogen peroxide and other chemicals. They are 100% natural.

Aasha Herbals hair dyes are formulated with Indian henna. Henna is a flowering plant that has been used as a cosmetic dye for 6,000 years. The hair colour that results from dyeing with henna can range from orange to auburn to burgundy. It depends mainly on the original colour of the hair. Besides, henna can be mixed with other herbs to achieve lighter or darker shades, from almost blond to black. Along with colouring the hair, henna also helps to make it stronger and healthier.

As the key ingredient of hair dyes by Aasha Herbals, henna helps to improve microcirculation in the scalp and strengthens hair roots. It also helps to prevent dandruff. It is especially good for oily and combination hair, because may have a slight drying effect. Unlike chemical hair dyes, henna rarely causes allergic reactions save for occasional cases of hypersensitivity (that why you should conduct a patch test before dyeing your hair with henna).

Herbal hair dyes that help to achieve dark colours, from brown to black, also contain indigo. Indigofera tinctoria (true indigo) is a plant used as a source of indigo dye. The indigo dye has a distinctive blue colour, but when mixed with henna and applied to hair, it leads to natural dark colours. Just like henna, indigo helps to take good care of your hair. It is rich in tannins, minerals and vitamin C known for its antioxidant properties. They help to normalize the hydro-lipid balance of the scalp, prevent dandruff and reduce hair loss.

To achieve certain colours, hair dyes by Aasha Herbals may be enriched with natural ingredients such as hibiscus, arabica coffee, turmeric, and beetroot. They help to achieve a wide range of colours and make your hair tamer and shinier.

Hair dyes by Aasha Herbals are very easy to use. Each package contains six 10 g sachets. All you have to do is empty one or several sachets into a bowl, add some warm water and mix well to form a lump free paste. The amount of dye you need to use depends on the length of your hair. Using an applicator brush, apply the dye from the roots upwards to the ends. Don't forget to put on protective gloves: although herbal hair dyes are unlikely to cause irritation, they stain the skin. Leave the dye on for half an hour. If you want to achieve a darker colour, you can wait for up to an hour before rinsing your hair. Then wash your hair thoroughly until water becomes clear.

When your hair dries, you'll be fascinated by its rich natural colour. You'll also notice that it's become softer and tamer. Unlike chemical dyes, herbal dyes don't damage the hair strands and irritate the scalp. However, as we've already mentioned above, henna may have a slight drying effect. So if you have dry hair, you should consider investing into a good moisturising conditioner. Oil hair masks will also help to prevent possible drying effects of henna and keep your hair hydrated.
