Why Are More Salons Switching To Ammonia Free Hair Colour?

You’ve probably heard the term Ammonia free hair colour being thrown around more frequently online and in the salon. In recent years, there has been a shift in trends and more people are moring towards Ammonia free products.

Luminous ammonia free hair colour is possible with the right product. So, why are more salons switching to ammonia free hair colour?

What Is Ammonia Free Hair Colour?

Ammonia free hair colour is hair dye that does not have any ammonia compounds in it. Ammonia is a high alkaline agent used in hair dye to open up the hair cuticle in order for the colour to penetrate into the hair. The ammonia is what gives off that unpleasant odour and is something that many people dislike.

The CONS To Ammonia-Based Hair Dyes

Over time the addiction of colouring your hair over and over again can take a toll. The look of over-processed hair isn’t nice.  It’s dry, unmanageable, dull and the amount of breakage done to the hair cuticle is irreversible. It feels as though no hair treatment in the world could bring back to its original state. This is because of the ammonia in hair dye.
With the intense long colour sessions, the ammonia can be harmful to your health. For sensitive clients, the irritation on the scalp can be aggravating. The strong smell of ammonia over time can be nauseating and stinging on the nose too.
And if this is an issue for the client, how about the salon staff? Can you just imagine having to smell it every day? Day in and day out, in an enclosed environment too.


So what to do?  The client has a sensitive scalp and wants beautifully dyed hair and the staff need a healthier working environment. In order to satisfy the needs of both the clientele and staff, the solution is ammonia free hair colour.
