Post Chemotherapy / Radiotherapy Hair Re-Growth After Care & ‘Organic’ Hair Colouring Service
The Natural Alternative With Outstanding results
Introduced to Snipswigs over 20 years ago, the Organic Colour Systems is the first-ever range of permanent colours made from the maximum amount of certified organic ingredients and the minimum amount of chemicals to colour hair as naturally as possible. Our unique approach is gentle but effective and easily colours even resistant grey hair and because hair responds better to natural ingredients it looks naturally healthier and glossier with radiant, longer-lasting colour.
Most hair colour products use harsh chemicals like ammonia that damage hair in the colouring process, stripping hair’s natural health and shine. By using more certified organic ingredients and fewer chemicals it is truly an effective way to colour hair and because hair responds better to natural ingredients our products give outstanding results. Our unique colour system and hair care products restores even damaged hair, giving it healthier body, suppleness and shine.
he organic hair colour system does not contain ammonia, silicones, parabens, pariffins, alcohol, artificial colourants, odourless and 100% free from PPDs & PTDs.
The rebirth of your hair and how to tackle it
First thing to remember is that everyone’s experience with hair re-growth is unique to them and the rate of growth varies from person to person. The new hair that comes back is still in a state of transition and takes time before it regains its natural health and strength. Not only can the hair be sensitive but also the scalp can be sensitive, and it is best not to expose either to strong chemicals. Just like your body, your hair needs to gain its inner strength and it takes time for this to happen. There are several stages to hair re-growth and the first stage takes about 2 months after you are finished treatment. Typically, hair grows at a rate of approximately half an inch per month. That gives you six inches annually. The key to re-growth is patience and allowing yourself time to recover.
Chemotherapy drugs affect the roots of your hair. They will continue to affect the hair shaft formation because these drugs will still be in your system for some time. Your hair, skin and fingernails will take some time to recover as the toxins leave your body. When your new hair comes in, it may be different from your natural hair at first. This is due to the loss or change of pigment and may result in white, grey, or some colour difference other than your natural colour. As your body recovers and the hair pigment rebounds, your hair may return to its original colour, or a colour close to your pre-chemo hair.
Expect a change in hair texture as well. Many women experience a change in the texture and colour of their hair when it starts to grow back. Sometimes women whose hair used to be straight are faced with curls. This is a result of the chemotherapy damaging the hair follicle. This can result in dry, fragile, brittle, frizzy and unmanageable hair. The good news is that the hair will eventually revert back to its original texture. For some women who have had fine hair most of their lives have found themselves with more hair than they ever had but unfortunately it can go the other way too.
