What if I told you that there is a new product on the market that can color gray and restore your natural hair product without the use of chemicals.
We all know about henna and indigo but this is not even anything remotely close to that either. Our friends over at Black Naps did a post today about a product called Hairprint. The product utilizes our body’s internal chemistry to color your hair Read below:
“Hair dyes work by opening up the cuticle and cortex of the hair, using ammonia or MEA, removing the color that is there, and placing a new color (a coal tar dye) in its place.
Rather than stripping hair of its color then bonding foreign dyes to hair using couplers, oxidizers, and harsh chemicals, Hairprint works by replacing the missing pigment common to brown and black hair.
During a Hairprint treatment, new eumelanin is synthesized within the cortex structure of the hair restoring its innate color.
This process is called melanogenesis and occurs constantly in the human body. Hairprint creates the precursors of eumelanin, relatively small monomers that penetrate the cuticle layer into the cortex where they form eumelanin pigments that polymerize and become too large to be washed or abraded out”.

Of course, the first thing you would want to know is what’s in it, well according to the company the product has 8 ingredients
Mucuna pruriens extract
“Baking soda is what we use at home for baking and cleaning. Mucuna pruriens extract is made from velvet beans. Sodium carbonate is made from salt and limestone. Ferrous and manganese gluconate are both vitamin supplements. Hydrogen peroxide is made of oxygen and water and naturally, occurs in the hair follicle. Carbomer is an inert thickener used in shampoos and pharmaceuticals. Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring sedimentary rock made from ancient deposits of hard-shelled algae”.
If you are interested in coloring your gray and you want to avoid chemicals this product might be a great choice for you. Just note that if your hair is already chemically altered via relaxer it will not work it works best on your newly transitioned hair.
