Hi! Thank you for the opportunity to ask my hair related question. Two years ago I had a bad reaction to hair color. The doctor suggested trying a color that has no fragrance. Do you have any ideas on a “new product” that might work for me . I decided not to go with henna.
Thank you so much!

    Hi there–

    I feel your pain! After years of eying my hair, I developed an allergy to the color, not the fragrance, and I suspect that is what your reaction was to also. (Per a Clairol Doctor) There are plenty of vegetable dyes on the market which vary from drugstore brands like Garnier to more “natural” products that you can find in stores like Whole Foods.
    If you have an organic store in your area that stocks beauty products, I’m sure you will find an appropriate hair color.

    You can also find them on Amazon:
