I know I’m not the only one who has been cutting out those beauty supplies that contain tons of chemicals in them. Luckily, we live in a time when companies are realizing that we consumers are looking for better for us products.
Madison Reed is one of those companies. They are a mail-order hair-coloring brand who offer ammonia, resorcinol, and PPD-free, products with no parabens added. No wonder they’ve been featured in publications like Elle, Vogue, and Good Housekeeping!!
I don’t dye my hair. This red is natural, baby! But when I was asked to be a part of the Madison Reed #BetterForYou campaign, I knew I had to see what the hype was all about. And thankfully my lovely mom volunteered to help me out!!
My mom easily picked her color through the Madison Reed site. (She went with Milano Brown 5NAC.) They have a color advisor online, but also offer email and phone consults as well. In about a week, her dye arrived and we were ready to get started with the coloring.
The supplies came in a very organized box! The directions were very clear and easy to follow, too. And for someone who hasn’t messed with hair dye since high school (ask Mom about when I came home with pink hair!!) I had no problems applying the product on my mom.
One thing we both noticed right away was the smell. This coloring kit does NOT smell like your typical home/salon coloring system. My mom, who usually colors her hair at home, said that she typically needs to open a window or walk around during her coloring treatments because the chemical odor is too powerful. Not with the Madison Reed products. We smelled nothing! Actually, I’ll take that back. We smelled a faint lavender scent…it was very pleasant. And very surprising!
You can tell that the product did a nice job of covering up my mom’s grays. And she was very happy with the results! Mostly, she loved that there was no smell (meaning no headache for her) throughout the whole process!!
