Why do People use Colour Hair Rinse on their Hair.
People apply colour rinse on their hair for a number of reasons. It could be to cover graying hair, to look more beautiful, to get a different look, to add
more depth to hair, to reduce dandruff and to stimulate hair growth.
Why Should you use a Natural Colour Hair Rinse.
It is better to use a natural colour rinse for your hair instead of hair dye, this is because hair dyes damage the hair by putting colour deposits in the
hair shaft. Colour rinses only stain the outer layer of the hair and it is gentler on your hair. It causes little or no damage to your hair shaft.
To avoid damaging your hair, you are better off with a rinse and even when you have damaged hair, using a natural colour hair rinse won’t cause further damage to your hair.
