Allow me to introduce you to HairPrint, the only 100% hypoallergenic, non-toxic, odor-free hair color in the world proven not only to restore hair to its natural color... it also improves hair structure!
Bye-bye harmful chemicals that eventually cause irreparable damage to the hair shaft, follicles and scalp-- Not to mention to our bodies as a whole, since the particles of standard toxic hair dyes are small enough to enter the bloodstream (the reason we can't color hair during pregnancy). The melanin pigment in Hairprint is already present in millions of our skin cells and due to its relatively large size does not pass into the bloodstream.
Currently, HairPrint has formulas available to return hair to its original shade of brunette or black... even if hair has since gone totally gray or white. They're working on a formula for blondes to be available soon.
When I stumbled across HairPrint I was intrigued by the fact HairPrint not only returns hair to each individual's specific natural color, permanently, it also leaves hair in better condition.
Following are the details of my results. I'll start with what led me to try it out in the first place.
Slowly but surely I've been overhauling all the products in my life from beauty to cleaning, food, laundry, etc. to upgrades (often inexpensive, simple alternatives) made with basically edible ingredients. At this point I could conceivably eat most everything I use! A lot of things do double duty - for example, it's amazing how much can be done with vinegar and baking soda. It's been a process of becoming ever more conscious of how what I'm using in my environment and on my body affects not only myself, my family and my pets, but my neighbors, the community, all animals and people, the earth and beyond. As we become more and more conscious, our eyes open wider to see conditioning for what it is... and we can't help but continue the journey down the rabbit hole, realizing and questioning the litany of assumptions, habits and beliefs we carry around, unravelling their domino affects which have become so tightly woven into society.
Which brings me back to hair... and the memory of a hair appointment a couple of years ago. For years I've been going to a lovely French salon in Washington for a great cut and "rich brown" color to give my natural tone an overall boost. This time, however, the experience went a bit differently. As a result of my ultra-clean lifestyle, my sensitivity to chemicals, smoke etc. has become super acute. Though I will say, I'd never been someone to care about stuff like this prior. Now, something like a processed girl scout cookie - it literally tastes like plastic chemicals to me. Or the scent of fabric softener wafting through the neighborhood - startling and artificial to my nose. My senses have recalibrated to the scent of baking soda and essential oils in my laundry (bonus tip for super soft, lovely smelling clothes) and the bright fresh flavors of a plant based diet.
I digress, however, back to that hair appointment... WHEW! My eyes, nose and scalp were on FIRE like I'd never experienced before! I could barely contain myself under that black cape, realizing how incredibly toxic the whole situation enveloping my head was - I knew I could never do it again. What affect must it be having on my body I wondered... on my dear hair stylist... on all the stylists who do this for a living day in and day out, their clients?
Yes, it is true, everyone's constitution is different. Some people can withstand a lot more than others - or at least for a longer period of time before they notice ill affects. Before they begin to put two and two together between the correlation of lifestyle habits and resulting diseases/impacts in body/mind/spirit. Society/conditioning is a strong enabler, however, writing much off as a part of getting older or simply lumping various preventable maladies into the trusty folder of "it's a mystery, that's life".
Friends, it's not a mystery, there is a litany of research available demonstrating the devastating ill affects the thousands of chemicals present in the majority of "food", "cleaning products", "beauty products" etc. etc. being consumed. Just check out the EWG site, read Dr. Michael Greger's book, How Not to Die, or watch the movies, What the Health, or Earthlings to get all the facts.
Why isn't all this stuff more well known? Chalk it up to the machine of conditioning. Profit motives, lobbyists, habit... basically, conditioning on a large scale amplifies the addiction behind all addictions -- to ego, to being someone, to maintaining an identity - which all leads to a lot of suffering for the individual and everyone else involved. Ego is suffering. Ego is conditioning. Who are we then? Our authentic nature is love... the heart. Our authentic nature does not lack or need to be "someone". It's already complete. Full. Wise. Powerful. Beautiful. Our authentic nature does not want to envelop heads in harmful chemicals. It actually knows better - without even having to read a book, watch a movie or visit a website. The heart doesn't support any of this stuff. The heart, love, is very wise. It's who we really are. However, conditioning is a formidable and relentless opponent, and, if our eyes aren't open, it will take the upper hand.
However, No! I'm not here to be a fear monger. The good news is everyday there are more and more outstanding alternatives entering the market - like HairPrint - with amazing, clean, beautiful high vibration products.
Thankfully, many people are catching on so the awareness and demand for these beautiful choices is growing. As I said before, it's definitely a rabit hole one enters, once we taste a real peach, we don't want fake peach flavoring. Once we start using real essential oils, chemical sprays and perfumes just don't compare. Yet, it's a win, win, win, win as there are SO many upsides to a clean lifestyle, from the health and beauty benefits of detoxification, to the mental and physical benefits of aromatherapy, the saving of animals (from product testing, exposure to the resulting toxins in our waterways, etc), saving our hair from turning to straw, preserving our beauty and youth... the list goes on! A clean lifestyle on all fronts holds such integrity, improving, uplifting and preserving our body, mind, spirit, earth and everything/one around us.
HairPrint not only provides a safe alternative to men and women who want to return their hair to it's natural color safely, but they're also giving 20% of their profits to educating women in developing countries.
I love the result in my own hair, though I have to say, since I've been raw vegan I am suspecting that the few gray hairs I had, may be turning back to brown - more on this in another post - or feel free to ask about in the comments section. I completed the process myself in my bathroom following the instructions to a T. I had been using Surya Henna which I'd loved, previously. However, it does contain some chemicals (though it's a FAR cry from standard hair dye) and it's temporary, washing out after 5 or 6 weeks. Not so with HairPrint! It's permanent. Yes, the process is a tad lengthy - though shorter than driving to a hair salon if you account for travel time - and much less expensive. I've read about others having their hair stylist do the process for them so that's always an option. Additionally some women are even layering successful balayage highlights overtop the HairPrint base. I'm a simple chocolate brown girl... as you can see from the results photos I've humbly interspersed alongside the stunning models depicted in HairPrint's inspirational artwork.

I'm just a happy customer :) Also, I'm happy to answer any questions about my process switching from Henna to HairPrint as it does require a tad different procedure. Overall, my hair felt super soft, silky and voluminous. I didn't use ANY additional product aside from the HairPrint color - didn't even style it - just blew it dry and that was it. In all honesty if I'd known I was going to take the results pics I'd have probably absolutely styled it - but this is at least a testament to the truth that HairPrint truly does improve hair structure making styling a potentially optional step :)
