Dyes without Ammonia: Do they damage your hair? Their Pros and Cons

with dyes without ammonia

Many people want to dye their hair without damaging it.

One of the most popular options to do so is with ammonia-free hair dyes.


25 years ago, no one smoke of the ingredients in hair products.

People went to the salon and dyed their hair or they did keratin treatments without even asking about the ingredients.

It’s not that they weren’t worried or that they didn’t care. They simply knew that the results were good and that is all they wanted to know.


Now we live in the time of information.

The whole world has the information they want just two clicks away.

Before, to research a topic, you had to go to the library. Now, we have the library in our pocket.

Before, nobody worried about the ingredients in the dye. Now, it’s something that the whole world worries about.

blue, fuchsia and green

Before, when someone went to the doctor, their diagnosis was final. Nobody doubted what the doctor said. Now, we even doubt a doctor’s diagnosis.

People keep going to the doctor. But now, if you don’t agree with the diagnosis, you look up another opinion on your cellphone.

Maybe within a few years, people will completely replace visiting a doctor with their telephone. Who knows.


This tendency to consult everything on your phone also happens in relation to hair salons and hair care.

Now, before people do anything to their hair, they look up opinions on the Internet, on their phones.


If you are about to do a hair botox, you look for opinions on hair botox.

If you are about to dye your hair, you look for opinions about dyes, dye brands, and ingredients in the dyes.


One day, someone started to expand on the idea that using classic dyes was dangerous for your hair. That it was a sin for your hair.

We are talking about those same days that have been used for decades and decades. The same dyes that your grandmother probably used to cover her gray hairs.

Now, it seems that those dyes are dangerous and we have to replace them for ones that don’t have ammonia.

It seems that ammonia-free dyes are the best invention for humanity since the wheel.


The question we have to ask ourselves is the following:

Are ammonia-free dyes really the best thing in the world and are the dyes we have used for our whole lives the devil?

What are ammonia-free dyes hiding?

That is what we are going to reveal today.

Today, I’m going to tell you the whole truth hidden by ammonia-free dyes so that you can make the best decision for your hair.

The truth about ammonia-free dyes that hair product brands don’t want you to know

with professional quality dyes

These days, everything natural and organic is in style.

In some cities, there are even special markets that sell these types of products. From foods to cosmetic products for your skin or hair; Everything natural. Everything organic.


Hair beauty product brands don’t want to be left out of this “natural trend.”

Hair cosmetic brands want to keep selling products to make millions. If to keep selling they have to invent dyes that are less dangerous and “more natural” then that’s what they will have to do.

That’s where ammonia-free dyes come in.


Let’s suppose that you want to dye your hair without damaging it

less aggressive for the hair

The hair stylist tells you that the best way to dye your hair without damaging it is to use an ammonia-free dye.

That sounds good, so you accept that she dyes your hair.


You fell into the trap.

carry an ingredient called monoethanolamine

The trap of the supposed natural and organic products.

Let’s be clear.


Just because a dye doesn’t have a certain ingredient that doesn’t make it natural.

Nor organic.

And another thing, do you really think that because a dye doesn’t have ammonia it is less damaging for your hair?


I’m sorry to say it, but no.

Permanent dyes that are sold as “ammonia-free, natural, or organic” in no way are better for your hair than traditional dyes.

What many people don’t know is that you can use the bets dye in the world or the cheapest dye at the supermarket, but the chemicals and processes are always the same. But I’m going to tell you more.

Dont mistreat hair when applying color

Many of those products that are sold as ammonia-free, organic, or natural have an ingredient called monoethanolamine.


Monoethanolamine(hereafter called MEA) is no safer and more effective on your hair than ammonia. I’m going to say it again in case that wasn’t clear enough.

The ingredient used as a replacement for ammonia IS NOT SAFER than ammonia.

Interesting, right?

causes the cuticle to open easily

If that seemed interesting to you, then what I’m going to tell you know is going to blow away some of those hairs on your beautiful head.

MEA is worse for your hair than the ammonia in traditional dyes.


MEA has a high pH, which makes the cuticle of the hair open more easily. This makes it fall out and also makes it so the color doesn’t las as long. But that’s not all, my friend.


You need 10 times the amount of MEA to get the same results as dye with ammonia. It’s crazy.

While all dyes can be damaging for your hair, the amount of MEA need makes it even more damaging.


Side effects of ammonia-free dyes

hair weakens

In the end, ammonia-free dyes that contain MEA have some side effects that nobody talks about.

For example, they can cause dermatitis and hair loss.

dye can also cause dermatitis

We aren’t saying that traditional dyes can’t do the same. But supposedly, ammonia-free dyes were the final solution to not damage your hair, and they aren’t.


How do you know if your dye has MEA?

It’s easy to read through the list of ingredients on the container of the dye.

There are three was to call MEA.

1- monoethanolamine

2- aminoethanol

3- ethanolamine

Any of these 3 forms can appear on the container.

If the dye contains MEA, it’s up to you to decide to use it or not.


The natural and organic lie

What comes to your mind when you hear the word organic or natural?


I think of a field of cows, pigs, and chickens and a lot of green. Hahaha.


Surely you have a very different idea than I do about what is natural and organic. And beauty products completely different ideas from one another.


Hair product brands take advantage of this lack of limits on the concept. Any product can put that it is natural on the label and done.

Everyone believes it. And everyone is happy.

The companies earn money.

And you end up with the lie that you are coloring your hair naturally.


Now you know the truth.

If you want to dye your hair naturally, the solution is not ammonia-free dyes.


A natural or organic dye would be one that is made only with ingredients that come from nature. If you add any type of chemical, it stops being natural.


I would like to know more about you

Are you thinking about dyeing your hair?

What color?
