Polly Higgins: beautiful hair

How I discovered natural hair dye…
When I saw the picture of Polly Higgins with her beautiful hair, it reminded me of how my hair used to look like when I was a young girl: thick, vivid, shiny, strong…

And now… it looked dry, dull and not even close to what it used to be. Strange, I thought, because I was doing everything I could… I was using quite expensive shampoo, moisturizer, wax oil and all kind of treatments you can think of… And I styled it very carefully with a blow dryer…Maybe it was the chemical coloring of my hair or the products I used?

What if I started to stop the chemical coloring? Would that make a difference? Looking at Polly’s hair, you can see that it’s natural, because of some fine grey hairs. So, I began to think about this: what is more important to me: quality or color???

Of course both are more or less important! But I decided I would rather do some concessions on the color than the quality…

Exactly in this moment that I became aware of the quality of my hair and that I wanted to change that, I passed by a natural hairdresser ‘Haarzuiver‘ in The Hague. It happened to be the first natural hairdresser in the Netherlands. And what a surprise: I found out that you could also dye your hair with plant colors in a satisfying way, namely permanent. Even with covering grey hairs! So doing concessions wasn’t even necessary at all!

So I started to dye my hair with plant colors and I also started to use organic products without all the bad additives. Slowly my hair began to look better and better again. Thicker and not dry anymore.

And I’m slowly starting to feel as that girl again…
