h2o water colour
Working in an organic hair salon (Natural Colour Works) using natural ingredient colours, I thought I will tell you more about the products that I use every day. My first product I want to look at is the H2o Water Colour.

At Natural Colour Works, we believe in caring for the condition of your hair and it's important to keep it healthy and shiny looking, which the H2o Water Colour does. Why compromise on your hair's health just to accomplish the colour you want?

What is H2o Water Colour?
H2o Water Colour is a 95% water-based natural hair colour with no peroxide, ammonia or resorcinol in the mix making it completely odourless. It is the closest to a vegetable dye you can get and still get the result as of a hair dye. It gives 100% grey coverage and as it gently absorbs into the cuticle using hot water and natural body heat, adding perfect shine and reducing stress on your hair. It's ideal for clients with sensitive scalps or skin conditions.

How does it work?
It's easy to use. Mixing the powder with warm water, then shake the bottle and it is ready to use. There's no root glow or line between old and new colour as the H2o Water Colour doesn't give a defined regrowth line when growing out. As there's no peroxide in H2o Water Colour you can only use it to darken or match the same colour this is perfect for grey hair. (For lightening hair we use soya colour and seaweed lightener but I'll talk about them another time. )

H2o Water Colour is a perfect colour correction product for your hair as there is no need to pre-pigmentate and prevents any further damage being done to the hair shaft.

We have over 32 subtle colours available so if you want to start looking for your hair and scalp, be nicer to environment and animals why don't you try H2o next time your colour needs refreshing and take the first step to healthy looking hair.

  1. Hi Sara,

    Thanks for writing about this - I've been looking for natural alternatives to commercial hair dye for a while now! It's this or a henna block so I'm going to weigh up the pro's and con's.

    Thanks again,

    1. Hi Besma. Thank you for your comment. glad it was helpful. I would recommend the watercolour as you have more choice. With some hennas having metallic salts in them can make it difficult if you ever want to do something different in the future. I once had a clients hair turning green when lightening it, because she didn't tell me she had henna two years earlier. good thing is you can still use the water colour after henna :) Good luck!

  2. Hi Sara,

    Are the products offered at your salon Formaldehyde free? I am allergic to Formaldehyde and cannot use any hair dye / hair straightening chemicals on my hair.



    1. Hi Maz,
      Our watercolour is free from Formaldehyde so should be safe for you to use. Always make sure you'll do a skin test first.
      Hope this helps
