Some semi permanent hair colors contain strictly food grade dyes or FD & C dyes with an alkalizer. Some use oxidative dyes with an alkalizer.
Botanical hair color henna is another form of semi permanent hair color, which comes in red tones. However, it is not suitable for porous hair. Manufacturers use different ingredients including metals, oxidative dyes and other plant pigments to alter the shade of the henna.
Progressive dye is another category of hair color. The more often you use them, the more color it deposits. You need to be careful in using progressive dye, as some of them use lead and other toxic metals.
Permanent hair colors contain various ingredients. Some use natural ingredients, while some may use many chemicals and concentrations of oxidative dyes. Chemicals like ammonia and monoethanolamine are very common in permanent hair colors. Monoethanolamine color is good for you if your hair is porous and fades quickly. Ammonia can make some colors extremely conditioning depending on the other ingredients present in the color.
