I never realised how many evil companies there were out there in the world. And what a hold they have over so many products. So many! And the power of marketing to make them look 'good' and 'natural'. I had been so blind. I will delve into the nasty companies another time, but this essentially paved the way for my latest vegan challenge - dyeing my hair.
La Riche Directions
Herbatint (though their Flash Fashion range is not vegan).
Naturtint and Herbatint are your 'bog standard' permanent hair dye/semi permanent dye that comes in a box.
Jerome Russell, Manic Panic and Directions all offer bleaching kits.
Manic Panic, Directions, Special Effects, Jerome Russell and Fudge all offer semi permanent, funky bright coloured tints.
Prices vary between these different products - another factor to consider.
Manic Panic: Bleaching kit is around £10 depending if you want 30%/40% vol.
Directions: Bleaching kit is around £8.50 (offers both 30% and 40%). In each kit you seem to get one 25g sachet bleach powder, 75ml cream peroxide. You also get little tools like a brush and a mixing tray and development cap and gloves.
Jerome Russell: Can buy the components of a 'bleaching kit' separately. I personally opted for this brand. The peroxide cream I used was 40% vol, 75ml and was in Superdrug for £1.52. I bought 3 of these. The bleach powder comes in a box containing 4 x sachets at £3.56. My hair is reddish brown with black roots, and comes down to my bra strap. I used 3 bottles and 3 sachets (ratio 1:1). Altogether it cost £8.12 and bleached my whole head.
Semi permanent tints in crazy colours and tubs of 4oz range from about £7-8.
Semi permanent tints are between £4-4.50. 88ml bottles.
Semi permanet tints range from about £9.50-£10. In 118ml bottles.
