Hello World!
 *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *  *
Currently I used to use Naturtint,since it claims that the product does not include any ammonia, parabens or resorcinol and is healthier than other products. But one day I have checked the ingredients and found out it does contain: SODIUM ERYTHORBATE. p-AMINOPHENOL. p-PHENYLENEDIAMINE. 2-METHYLRESORCINOL. 4-CHLORORESORCINOL. 4-AMINO-2-HYDROXYTOLUENE etc.

So I am kind of disappointed.

Are there any organic hair dyes or at leats hair dye that doesn't contain ammonia, parabens and resorcinol ?

What brand of hair dye do you use?

You could try henna hair dyes
This is the one my parents use for their grey hairs, but I don't know if it is easily accessible

Oh I forgot to mention I am not into henna etc. I want to finish the whole colouring stuff within 30 minutes. As far as I know henna takes much longer and your hands get dirty etc.

I am kind of lazy, just looking for a hair dye that contains less chemical.

I think all hair dyes are somewhat damaging as they contain peroxide and ammonia. However, dying your hair darker will not damage it nearly as much as bleaching. Maybe you should try a color glaze? Henna is supposed to be a healthy alternative but I've never tried it

I don't dye my hair, but I know that you can't get a completely natural permanent haircolour.

Naturtint also has this Reflex range, they are semi-permanent hair dyes that last for 2 to 4 weeks (maybe less if you wash your hair daily) and contain no PPDs or peroxide or resorcinol in addition to the other nasties that have been removed from the main range (ammonia, parabens..)

black henna dyes usually contain very little henna, the rest chemicals. I think the key is to buy the powdered, not liquid product containing solely lawsonia inermis, but I'm not sure where you can find it.

I'm no hair enthusiast but whenever I hear terms like "organic" and "chemicals" being thrown around I get suspicious. Upon doing some brief research I stumbled across an interesting article which addresses some concerns about the "chemicals" in certain hair dye products.
Quote:
 
I’m sure every hair dresser and their clients are aware of ‘ammonia free’ color and ‘zero-ammonia’ hair products either at Cosmoprof (major distributor of professional beauty products) and in hair salons. It doesn’t smell so bad so it must be better for you, right? Have you ever considered asking yourself important questions such as,

“What chemicals are replacing ammonia and are they good for me?”
“Is it really ammonia free, or is that just a marketing gimmic?”

I attended the ISSE (International Salon and Spa Expo) Long Beach in 2010 and a hair color chemist came on stage and answered questions regarding chemicals in hair product and color. The first regarded ammonia free products. His stated that you should be careful of ‘ammonia free’ for a few reasons.

Ammonia is a natural bi-product and small amounts are not harmful unless you are allergic.
Ammonia smells and that is why hair dressers and clients like ammonia free products.
Some ‘say’ they do not have ammonia when there may be traces of it.

The chemicals used to replace ammonia are EXTREMELY toxic.
Don’t take my word for it. Take a look at this post by a worker at Masty Teinture hair products:

All of them do damage to the hair, unless semi permanent.
I have never dyed my hair though.

i have to color my hair every 2-3 weeks because it grows fast and i have a big ammount of grey hair. Herbal products are very nice and they do not damage your hair BUT:

1. the effect fades away too fast
2. they cant color grey hair well :(

The quote Baron posted is true info. I did lots of research on different hair dyes. AMMONIA is less harmful than chemicals used to replace it! plus- ammonia based hair products are the only type of products that are effective if you wanna color grey hair

I've never dyed my hair but I want to try the following colors: jet black, reddish-black, reddish-brown, ginger red, strawberry blonde, and medium blonde. My natural hair is light-brownish/dark-blondish colored.

I think you'll look great as ginger red or strawberry blonde. Reddish brown too.

I tried it once and it was supposed to make my hair lighter and it made it darker and it also made it look like someone got murdered in my bathroom...

Yeah that's the only issue with henna, it's so messy and it leaves a smell that's really hard to get rid of
