Hair can be dyed using a lot of ingredients. But most of the chemical based ingredients may damage your hair strands, thus, leading to problems such as hair fall, hair loss and thinning of hair strands. The chemical based dyes mostly contain parabens or ammonia which are potentially toxic. A DIY hair dye made out of natural ingredients is best to use as it has no harmful effects.
