Ammonia  PPD Free Hair Colour Ingredients:
PPD Free Hair Colour ingredients-
Until the early 1900s, hair coloring was made from a wide range of herbal and natural dyes. Flying in the face of other chemists who found the development of hair coloring trivial and unworthy of their time, French chemist Eugene Schuller. created the first safe commercial hair coloring in 1909. His invention was based on a new chemical paraphenylenediamine.{ has a petroleum ring to it does it not?}
same old same old MEA based from ethanol- Ammonia see a pattern.
Ammonia Friend or foe!

The two main chemical ingredients involved in any coloring process that lasts longer than 12 shampoos are:
Ammonia – This alkaline allows for lightening by acting as a catalyst when the permanent hair color comes together with the peroxide.
Like all alkaline’s, ammonia tends to separate the cuticle and allow the hair color to penetrate the cortex of the hair changes the Ph from our desired 5 to 5.5 to 7 and beyond.
Detergent also an Alkaline mix detergent and small amount ammonia we have a foaming semi permanent or a shampoo rinse!

Hydrogen Peroxide (also known as the developer or oxidizing agent) This ingredient in varying forms and strengths, helps initiate the color-forming process and creates longer-lasting color.
The larger the volume of the developer the greater the amount of sulphur or sulfpur is removed from the hair loss of sulphur causes hair to harden and lose weight this is why for the majority of hair coloring the developer is maintained at 30% volume or less.

Alternatives to industrial  professional tints:
It has been recorded historically that ancient civilizations dyed their hair using plants. Some of the most well known are henna, indigo, Cassia obovata, senna, turmeric and amla. Others include katam, black walnut hulls, and leeks.
Presently, there are some companies that do sell alternate-based dyes for people that are sensitive to PPD, a chemical found in most hair colors.
There are also said to be safer products that avoid the side-effects of most industrial tints. The safer alternatives generally contain fewer potentially toxic compounds or are plant based, and do also have temporary, semi-permanent and permanent options.
However, these products typically do not last as long as industrial tints once again the engine driving the colour can be classed as herbal but it may be just as toxic as Ammonia! grain Alcohol for example.

So it makes sense to use a reputable, ethical, safe hair colour!
Good luck with this still not convinced these companies are totally honest in the way they represent the product or the chemistry of the formulation.

Types Of Products:

Dyes are available today in all forms. Liquid, powder, oil, cream and gel, etc. Mascaras, crayons and sprays are used as temporary and semi-permanent dying, whereas gel and other forms are used for permanent styling.
Once again the products all have a different edge hook oil, silicone, metallic salt. wax. the list goes on!
You are unique and no one else has exactly the same hue as you!
You might look black, brown, red or blonde, but there are subtle differences. Amazingly nature creates a different dye for everyone using only two types of the natural pigments “melanin”: umelanin (black pigment) and pheomelanin (red/yellow pigment).
In most case the skin colour  and tone our eye colour all those different flecks and indeed our hair colour a multitude of shades tones all make us unique and normally compliment each other.
