  1. Is EcoColors Haircolor a natural color?

    EcoColors Haircolor does contain many botanical ingredients, but it is not a totally botanical hair color. In order for any hair color to be permanent, oxidative dyes must be present. As far as we know, there is not a permanent hair color on the market that is totally botanical. EcoColors Haircolor has been created with non-toxic in mind but it is not a "cure all" for all allergies and just because it has many natural ingredients, it does not mean it is hypoallergenic.

  3. Is peroxide bad?

    Peroxide is not toxic -- The peroxide in EcoColors Home kit is a 20 volume developer buffered with flax and castor oils. This means the peroxide is only strong enough to lighten the hair 1-2 levels and it is the best formulation for gray coverage.

    Ecocolors is a permanent haircolor. We always recommend that you do an strand test and an allergy test before applying any new color to your entire head. If you have any reaction , do not use Ecocolors as you may be allergic to an ingredient in the color formulation. If you have a question about whether you should use EcoColors while under the care of a physician, please consult your physician. EcoColors is not a cure all for all allergies and ultimately it is up to you and your physician to determine whether or not you should use EcoColors Haircolor.
