Safe natural hair dyes for pregnancy

In pregnancy, it's good to be wary of chemicals in hair treatments, but we like Naturtint's natural colouring solution.

When you are pregnant, everyone tells you don’t eat that, don’t drink this, and so on. But what about the ingredients in other everyday items we are using on our body?

Naturtint Reflex is a way to maintain your hair-colouring routines through pregnancy and breastfeeding, without having to worry about chemicals which might harm you or your baby.

This is a semi-permanent colour that sits on the hair, rather than penetrating the scalp and entering into your system, so you don’t have to worry even about the slight risk that secondary chemical-exposure might have on the fetus. Naturtint has been developed for the UK market, so that it does not contain the four most common chemicals found in regular hair dyes: Paraphenylenediamine, Ammonia, Resorcinol and Peroxide. Between them, these chemical ingredients cause skin irritation, allergic reaction, and breathing-related problems.

Even if you are usually perfectly fine when exposed to these in your normal hair dyes, during pregnancy, hormonal changes bring about greater sensitivity to unexpected external agents and you could more easily be affected.

Instead, in Naturtint products, there are many more natural ingredients to support healthier hair including Panax Ginseng root extracts and Burdock extract to strengthen and revitalize.

Each pack contains Hair Colour, Colour Fixing Shampoo, Restructuring Spray-on Serum, gloves and instructions. The range includes ten different colours, from black and mahogany, to Golden Copper Blonde.
