    Posted: January 12 2000 at 5:54am
I have decided to stop coloring my hair, cut it short, and bascially start over. I'm going to have long HEALTHY hair if it's the last thing I do! (And at the rate I'm going, it may take that long.) I'm not going to color, blow-dry, or use a curling iron on it ever again. I'm going to try to avoid products with alcohol and choose natural products whenever possible. I've even starting taking H37 vitamins.My question is this. Does semipermanent color damage hair at all. I'm sure it's better for your hair than permanent color, but is it even slightly damaging?Thanks for your help.

HiI admire your will power to go 100% natural!As to your question: Whether or not any hair color is damaging depends on the product. Some semi perm colors may still have some level of ammonia/peroxide. It's best to read labels carefully to determine what might be in them.Semi-perm is usuallymuch less chemically laden, and much less damaging than permanent.Robert craig produces hair colors that have absolutely no peroxide, alcohol or ammonia. I've never tried them, however, so I can't speak to the results. But this may be a route for you.You can check them out on this url:http://www.effect-inc.com/good luck to you! :) silvie

I have mostly used "Loving Care" by Clairol, which is a semipermanent color that lasts 12 shampoos, or if you depart from your natural color much, up to a month to wash out. I have used this BECAUSE it has no peroxide, ammonia, or anything to damage my hair.Last April I tried "Natual Instincts", which has a bit of peroxide in it. BIG MISTAKE!! The hair which was colored with that is drier and requires constant conditioning, whereas with the other haircolor I didn't have to deep condition nearly as often.Moral of the story is, read the ingredients and stay away from peroxide or ammonia. Hope this helps.

Thanks for your advice! I'll check out Loving Care and I'll stay away from ammonia and peroxide at all costs.It has been 10 weeks since I last colored my hair and I swear that even the colored part already seems softer since it didn't get it's regular abuse 5 weeks ago.This is going to be good.

Thanks, Silvie. Have you tried this? It looks too good to be true. If there is no ammonia or peroxide, I wonder what makes it permanent? Any ideas?> please check out:> http://www.effect-inc.com/> this is the site for robert craig, which describes the> product. let me know how it works for you, if you> decide to try it.> good luck :) silvie

No, I have not tried it, as I am currently taking a break from hair coloring :), I agree with you though--how can it be permanent without some sort of chemicals? I think the ingredients must include some very strong natural coloring agents. Also, if you read some of the info they have on the site, though do explain the process a bit. You may want to call their 800 number for details. Or maybe post another message on this site, asking people if they've used this hair color. I think it's worth looking into. Hope this is helpful to you.:) silvie
