What is a no-ammonia professional hair color and how is it formulated?

Manufacturers and professionals operating in the hair care industry are often used to thinking that ammonia is a fundamental component in hair colors. It was in the past, maybe, but today it can be easily replaced by other ingredients.

The best alternative ingredient used in professional no-ammonia hair colors is monoethanolamine (MEA) – an organic compound that opens hair cuticles and lets the pigment penetrate. MEA is less harmful than ammonia and generally well-tolerated by sensitive scalps.

Other ingredients found in professional hair colors without ammonia include:
  • natural oils
  • plant extracts
  • low levels of peroxide

Thanks to no-ammonia formulations, you can offer your clientele a gentler and more natural solution to traditional hair colors, while still delivering long-lasting and vibrant shades.



What is ammonia and why could it be dangerous to the hair and scalp?

Ammonia is a common ingredient in many hair dyes, but it’s also a harsh alkaline chemical with high pH levels. In fact, it’s used to open hair cuticles and let the pigment penetrate, but it can be damaging to the hair and scalp:

  • it causes hair cuticles to swell and become porous – this potentially leads to dryness, breakage, split ends, fragility, and proneness to further damage from external and heat agents
  • it can irritate the scalp – thus causing redness, itching, inflammation, and potentially leading to chemical burns
  • finally, it can also be harmful to the environment and to the people who work with it – as a toxic chemical, it can cause respiratory problems and other health issues, especially with prolonged exposure.

This is why the best professional hair colors are formulated without ammonia nowadays. Ammonia-free options are becoming increasingly widespread and preferred by people who want to prevent their hair, scalp, and overall health from damage.
