At the age of 46, I started going grey. Until that point, I had fondly and naively imagined that my head of long curly hair would go a wonderful uniform silver colour, and all would be beautiful. In reality, the grey started as a few strands at the front of my scalp and soon developed into unattractive, patchy salt and pepper.
Being a health-oriented person, I had a vague idea that I didn’t want to use chemical hair dyes, and the more research I did, the more this belief was reinforced. I tried various ‘natural’ dyes, including a low chemical hair dye as well as mixing henna powder with coffee, and all I achieved was an allergic reaction and pink hair!
In despair and almost at the point of giving up, I did more research and found out that if I mixed certain natural plant extracts, I could dye my hair in shades of brown and black!
After more research and experimentation on my own hair, I realised that I had found what I was looking for and was inspired to start my hair dye business. In fact, I named the business after the first words I spoke when I saw my freshly dyed hair in the mirror….. “Oh gosh, I Love My Hair!” Not only were my mousy greys covered, but after a few weeks, I could clearly see and feel that my hair was growing faster, thicker and was healthier.
I feel strongly against animal testing so all my products are certified and approved by Beauty Without Cruelty.
I also believe its very important to be aware of the dangers of chemical hair dye. I know from first-hand experience how upsetting it can be to go grey, and to feel that there may be no healthy alternatives to chemical hair dye. In retrospect, I’m glad that I had the allergic reaction because otherwise I would still be endangering my health with chemical products.
My products have given me a head of full, healthy and beautifully dyed hair, without harming me, the environment or any animals.
I offer 3 product ranges:
