Today I’m going to talk about toxicity and my experience of dying my hair! As you all know, I recently bleached my hair and deposited a pastel pink color over it.
I sincerely love having bright and fun colors in my hair and on my face, but I’ve never been able to find something safe to use. Almost every product I’ve tried has extremely toxic ingredients hidden in their formulas, regardless of the added organic ingredients in order to green wash their product. It’s very disappointing for a colorful unicorn girl like yours truly.
I have opted for safer alternatives, such as OverTone, but my body is still not having it. Due to my previous history of autoimmune, these products have created deleterious effects on my health. I’ve worked hard to be as healthy and vibrant as I can be, and sometimes having conventional pink hair is just not worth the damage and time to heal.. all I’ve ever wanted is to have a healthy body due to my past experiences of dis-ease.
With that being said, I am inordinately stubborn, and I mean STUBBORN AS HECK, so I am very determined to find a way to be the pink peachy queen I am. I will be experimenting with different fruits and vegetables and see what gives my hair the best pigment. If all else fails, I’ll revert to a strawberry blonde, but I won’t give up so easily!
I’ll update you guys on the process of finding a natural way to stain your hair pink! Shoot, I might even be able to make a product 🙏🏼🙏🏼🙏🏼
