I have tried Logona Color Creme, which is totally Natural, and comes from Germany. I have been burned at the salon a few times before. My scalp usually feels like it is on fire after having my hair colored and without going totally gray (I am too young for that!) I decided to look into alternatives.
Naturtint has too many chemicals, it is better than some, but still has PPD in it and other things that I do not want to have touching my scalp and entering my blood stream, which I have heard that the chemicals do…
Check out Logona’s line of all natural cream hair colors with henna. I was kind of wary of using it, because of the henna, but I find if you go a bit darker and stay away from the redder shades, it comes out very nice. I have medium blonde but my natural color is 80% gray with dark brown strands.
It is safe so that you can use it just on your parting if you like and around the hair line for a touch up in between. I have even found a kind hair stylist who will apply it for me, and I can save money at the same time!
They included Green Clay in the formula, which has a gentle stripping effect that enables the color particles to adhere to the hair strands. You do have to leave it on for about 1/2 hour to 45 minutes, and put a shower cap on, just like Henna powders, but it is a lot less messy and all you do is open the cap, squeeze out to a bowl and apply with a brush and voila! You can save the rest of the tube by putting the cap back on the tube until you’re ready for a touch-up… It does come out of the tube sort of fast, which I found out when I tried to apply direct to my scalp from the tube!
I got my supply from Natural Europe (www.naturaleurope.com). You can also purchase other hair coloring supplies to go along with it, which include the hair preparation shampoo, and even a conditioning treatment with color (they have blond and a brown version) that you can use to retain the color in your hair. I haven’t used that yet but have it on order.
