Pesky grays. I’m not talking about beings from another planet. I’m talking about the hair invaders that come with age, (and some believe stress.) I loathe them! Some embrace them and call them their “hair glitter.” Not me! I try to pluck them out, but lately, there’s just too many.
BioKap® reached out to us and asked if anyone wanted to try out their Nutricolor hair dye. Um, YES PLEASE! I was in desperate need of a “cover up,” so the timing couldn’t have been better. They asked me what color I’d like, and sent right out.
I have naturally dark brown hair. I started dying it when I was younger, because I loved a black cherry color. Now I dye it because I have to. I also go lighter now because it seems to hide the grays better. (Those buggers REALLY stick out when you have very dark hair!) I chose Nutricolor Delicato+ in the shade 9.3, ( almost a dirty blonde color.)
The day it came I tried it. What I noticed first is that it didn’t have a horrible smell. Many lighter hued hair dyes smell terrible, and should be used in a well ventilated area, (unlike my tiny bathroom.) You see, Nutricolor Delicato has NO Ammonia, Resorcin, Fragrance, Paraben, Paraphenylenediamine, or Phenylenediamine. What it DOES have is Tricorepair a complex with rice proteins and restructuring actions. It also has a Willow derivative and fruit lipophilic acids, that care for your scalp during the coloring process. Thanks to the Argan oil, fatty acids, and Vitamin E, it helps make a frail and brittle mane, shiny again.
One of my favorite things about BioKap® Nutricolor Delicato+ is that it comes with cream to apply to the skin around your hairline and your ears. (This keeps the dye from staining your skin.) I’ve never had another hair color kit come with that, and then I have to hunt down some petroleum jelly. It also comes with a plastic bib to protect your neck and shirt from dye. (I’ve never had a kit come with something like that either.) This kit really is an all one in one kit. You’ll only need scissors to get started.
Now, going lighter tends to dry out your hair, especially your ends. I didn’t experience that with BioKap®. After I rinsed it out and then washed with the including shampoo/conditioner, and rinsed again, my hair felt like it does after a normal wash. My ends weren’t dry and didn’t feel like straw. The color lightened my hair while not turning it orange like many other light dyes tend to do. I was very impressed. I also love how it hid my nasty grays, but the color has highlights, and lowlights, and looks so natural.
I have tried every brand of hair dye on the market, and I kid you not, I’m now a huge BioKap® fan. I know what dye I will be buying in a few months. Don’t just take my word for it though. Head to their website, see all their color options, and order some for yourself.
