7 Ammonia-Free Hair Dyes and Why You Should Make the Switch
Since most people are dying their hair at home these days, we thought it would be good to introduce you to some of the best ammonia free hair colors in the market. Hair dye can do some serious damage to the hair, so by taking out ammonia, you can find a difference in how your hair feels after the treatment and how it gets on the long run.
So why is ammonia bad for the hair?
Hair dye with ammonia has been known to give the hair a nice rich color that is vibrant and long lasting, but it can also cause the hair to lose protein and moisture which can dry out and damage the hair.
