I wanted to carry one "green" hair color line, in other words : one line that had as many of the healthy aspects as possible yet still delivers great color. To date (November 2016) You simply are not going to get a super awesome hair color. You may get "awesome" though and this and Wella' INNOSENSE are the 2 lines I believe in. This is Schwarzkopf's permanent ammonia-free colour with Phytolipid Technology.....it provides up to 100% white hair coverage and is free from mineral oil, parabens, silicones and artificial fragrances.
There are 2 completely different lines of Essensity hair color and I've heard a lot of good reviews of this line, I am going to try it on a couple people and myself in the next couple weeks and will get back to you.....maybe this is a hidden secret line ( which btw happens a lot)
What hairdressers say about NEW ESSENSITY after 1,500 applications in 174 salons**:
The Secret Lies In Phytolipid Technology
The combination of specially re-designed colour pigment mixes and plant-based oils that contain lipids found in healthy-looking hair maximizes colour performance.
Developer ratio is 1:2 so 2 parts of Developer to 1 part of color...Very important to get that correct !
Ammonia-Free Hair Color, a lot of people have wanted something like this and here it is.... this is the healthiest HAIR COLOR on Planet Earth and it has some awesome base and unique colors.
Ammonia is a natural substance (meaning it is found in its natural chemical structure and not made in a lab) that has been used in hair color for years. However, it is not the only available option for permanent hair color on the market.
Other common catalysts for permanent hair color include MEA and AMP. These chemical compounds are popular because they do not have the distinct smell of ammonia. However, they are not safer for the hair. In fact, the ammonia you smell means it is evaporating and leaving the hair once the job is done. Other catalysts are less effective in hair color use and actually live in the hair longer. They are chemicals that can be as damaging as or even more so than ammonia.
