ONC Natural Colors Healthier Permanent Hair Color


I've been coloring my hair since I was 13 or 14 years old. It started out with just a few highlights and morphed into years of trying out multiple colors; everything from black to bright pink and everything in between. So yes, my hair has taken a chemical beating. My skin has also taken a chemical beating. The first time I ever bleached my hair in order to dye it a crimson red, I ended up with horrendous chemical burns on my ear. Let me tell you, this is something you do not ever want happening, but it does happen even when you are careful. So since then, for the most part, I have started looking for more dyes that don't use powerful chemicals to color your hair. 



I switched from box dyes to more professional colors that have little to no chemicals and are much better for your hair and overall health. 

ONC Natural Colors is technically a box dye, but the PH is very low. Which means you won't burn your eyes from the fumes and definitely won't burn you skin. You will also find that it's actually good for your hair! 

Instead of chemicals which open the hair cuticle and allow the hair to take in the color, Natural Colors Permanent Hair Color uses a cap and heat from your dryer. 


This is also the first hair dye I've ever used that came with so many things in the box. I mean, this is actually really impressive. Most come with the dye mix, gloves, and one tube of conditioner. This one actually comes with two packs of shampoo and conditioner, as well as the plastic cap, and a brush and container to mix the dye in. So you can use it straight from the bottle or mix and brush on. 

The dye is supposed to have more of a floral scent, but I'm going to be honest, it smelled like mildewed flowers instead. Not the most pleasant scent in my opinion, but it was definitely better than your average eye and nose burning scent of most box dyes. 

The color was really easy to use, although it took a little more time than I'm use to. Since I've dyed my hair before, the instructions said that my first step was to put color on the roots and new growth, cover with a cap, and heat with a blow dryer for 10 minutes. After the 10 minutes, I removed the cap and finished the rest of my hair. The rest of the dye sat on my hair for about 25 minutes before it was time to wash it out. 

When it came time to wash, they suggested to get my hands a little wet and massage the color into my hair a little more before rinsing. After the rinse, comes the shampoo, another rinse, and the conditioner which you leave in for 5 minutes and then rinse out. 



I could tell right off the bat that my hair was significantly healthier than previously had been when I used other box dyes. It's been a few days and the color is still looking great after quite a few washing. It has not faded, and it feels so much smoother and looks a million times healthier. I also noticed that it didn't make my scalp itch like other dyes I've used. 

I cannot really speak on how well it covers grays, since I've been lucky enough to not find any yet. Of course, that could be from constantly dying it. But it's claim is that it covers grays really well. I tend to believe this claim since I've seen how good and thorough it goes on and covers previous color, while also blending in new growth.
