hair dye vitiligo


Using EarthDye natural hair dye is safe and recommended for individuals with vitiligo for several reasons:

  1. Sensitivity and Irritation: People with vitiligo may have heightened skin sensitivity or be more prone to irritation. Our hair dyes are milder and not likely to cause adverse reactions or exacerbate existing skin conditions. Many customers have told us over time, when they used chemical hair dye, their vitiligo got worse until they started using our hair dye or beard dye.
  2. Avoiding Harsh Chemicals: Conventional hair dyes often contain harsh chemicals, such as ammonia, peroxide, and paraphenylenediamine (PPD), which can irritate the scalp and skin. On the other hand, EarthDye is derived from plant-based ingredients and excludes these potentially harmful chemicals.
  3. Minimizing Allergic Reactions: Some individuals with vitiligo may have heightened susceptibility to allergies. EarthDye is less likely to trigger allergic reactions since it contains no synthetic chemicals and is made from botanical sources, such as plants.
  4. Enhancing Overall Hair Health: EarthDye natural hair dyes contain nourishing ingredients, such as herbal extracts, ayurvedics, and plant proteins, that can help promote hair health and growth. This can be particularly beneficial for individuals with vitiligo, as maintaining healthy hair and scalp can contribute to overall well-being.
  5. Supporting a Holistic Lifestyle: Some individuals with vitiligo prefer to follow a holistic approach to their health and well-being. Using natural hair dye aligns with this mindset by avoiding synthetic chemicals and embracing more organic, sustainable, and eco-friendly options.

EarthDye is safe and effective. However, if you have any doubts, it’s important to note that individual experiences and sensitivities may vary. It’s recommended to consult a dermatologist or a healthcare professional specializing in vitiligo for personalized advice on hair care and dye options that are suitable for your specific needs. Over the almost 17-year period and millions of packs sold, we have never encountered anyone having a bad experience using our hair dye that has vitiligo.

      Hi Sayed, I would use Soft black mixed with indigo. The more indigo you add the darker it will be :), only mix what you need and store the rest in a cool dry place.
