Are there any harmful chemicals in Natural-Colors?
No. In fact, there are no chemicals in Natural-Colors. This is a 100% natural treatment with no additives. Recently, there have been reports that some chemical hair dyes might be linked to ovarian and breast cancer. This link is controversial. And, you know we don't like to perpetuate unproven rumors. But, it appears that at least some reputable professionals are concerned about this link. It looks like the greatest risk is to hair care professionals(who handle the products on a regular basis) and, if there is a link, it's weak at best. Darker colors and black are considered more risky because the chemicals in them are used at higher concentrations. Use of Natural-Colors avoids any potential risk from the use of the chemicals in permanent hair coloring products.
