by - Wednesday, October 15, 2014

*Thank you to Madison Reed for the opportunity to discover a healthier and convenient alternative to at-home hair color and for sponsoring today's post.*

Check out what is included in their kit: 2 Pairs of Gloves, Shampoo & Conditioner, barrier cream, cleansing wipe plus coloring cream!

For years, I've wanted to try an up-scale do it yourself hair coloring kit that works and is also easy on your hair. I know that coloring at-home sometimes has a stigma and I think that Madison Reed is helping change that. They offer healthy, at-home coloring kits. Not only does their website go through a great virtual consultation to help you choose the right color that is perfect for your hair, they also want to help make your hair coloring experience a good one with the ingredients they pack in their product.

How does ingredients like argan oil, keratin, and ginseng root sound? More and more companies are now realizing that people do not want chemicals/additives touching them that have been found to harm the body.

Here is a list of things that are NOT in Madison Reed products:
  • NO ppd
  • NO resorcinal 
  • NO ammonia
  • NO added parabens
Do you pay attention to the ingredients in the things you buy? If so, I'd love to hear which ones you avoid or which ingredient you discovered that was most shocking to you?

Here are 3 of my tips to help ease you through the sea of bad products:

  1. Find reputable brands that you can trust! Ask your friends, look at natural stores, etc.

  2. Once you find something that works and that you like, be loyal.

  3. Research the ingredient list, I've found that COSDNA is a great resource to look up ingredients.

When it comes to hair coloring kits, Madison Reed knows just what people should expect. I appreciate a company that cares about what I put on my skin. Their kit was easy and fun to use!

My results were just as good as their ingredients! I really just needed a freshen up on my color and that is just what I got. My dark red was fading and the Genova Red brought it back to life. See my before/after below:

What do you think? I'm happy with my results! If you'd like to try them out for half price, Madison Reed is offering my readers a chance to try out their kits at 50% off their first order using code: MRPAMPER

  1. Love this post! I am always on the hunt for a natural (working) hair dye. I also loved the infographic. I had no idea about Benzoyl Peroxide. I've been slathering it on my face and body for years! Ugh, gerrrr! But now I know. Thanks! :)

    PS- Have you ever done any research on humidifiers since you are living in a dry climate? I know they can be very dangerous (with most models), with mold and bacteria but maybe there are some safer models??? Just thought I'd ask. :) Thanks, Kristin D
