So what exactly is ammonia free hair colouring ?
It’s whatever you want it to be as long as it doesn’t contain ammonia! It may still contain PPD -paraphenylene diamene – : see allergy to paraphenylene diamene ; and it may contain a ton of other chemical names that you’ve never heard of , but as long as your hair dye doesn’t contain ammonia it can be marketed as “ammonia free”.

Herbal Hair Colour
We promote herbs and water to colour your hair. We don’t add anything to our herbs. We call it herbal hair colour. It goes by many names including natural hair dye, plant hair colour, and botanical hair colour. The words hair dye and hair colour are used interchangeably because whatever colours your hair is a hair dye as well as a hair colourant or hair colour.
Henna, Indigo & Cassia Obovata
The main herbs we grow and use to make herbal hair colours which colour all types of hair, including Indian hair, are : henna, indigo, and cassia obovata.
We crush and powder the dried leaves of these plants to make a herbal powder to which you simply add water to create your hair dye paste ! Explore the Natural hair Dye Library resources on our website to find out more about how these work and what hair colours you can get with simply henna and indigo. You can get red, brown, and black, and all shades in between, as well as natural hair cleansing and conditioning.
Naturally Ammonia Free
Henna, indigo and cassia obovata are naturally ammonia free because we don’t add ammonia or anything else at all to our herbs !
Organic Hair Colour & Hair Care
Organic means grown without the use of pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, sewage sludge, genetically modified organisms, or ionizing radiation. Naturally organic means products which are grown in their natural place, at a natural pace, and not exposed to non natural chemicals.
Certified organic refers to an application process whereby people who are planning to market products as “organic” can get certified by a National Organic Programme accredited agent. There are a number of agents to choose from, such as Soil Association and Ecocert. However, these programmes are expensive and, sadly, run the risk of putting smaller growers of natural plants, especially in poorer countries, out of business. That’s why we sell both natural hair colour and organic natural hair colour from certified organic sources. We are careful to ensure that the highest standards are met and that crops are carefully harvested with love and care.
