What is real plant dye?

Plant dye has existed for centuries. It’s an old technique that’s been used for many years. By laying out plants, flowers, bark… in the sun to dry and subsequently grinding them to a fine powder, you can obtain the main ingredient of this dye: plant powder. It is, therefore, a completely natural process.

The benefit of natural hair dye is that it merely coats your hair without altering the internal structure of your hair fiber. This coating functions as a protective layer against external aggressors such as wind, sun, pollution… Besides plants with a coloring effect, we also add plants with a caring effect. These have different purposes such as balancing the scalp, nourishing dry hair, providing extra shine… Plant-based dye therefore not only colors your hair; it does so much more than that!
