Scientists use Ribena waste to develop new blackcurrant hair dye

A group of scientists at Leeds University have turned to an unlikely source to create an extraordinary alternative to hair dye.

Made using blackcurrants left over from the production of soft drink Ribena, the patented process can produce intense reds, purples and blues.

The new prototype is also effective when combined with other natural colours, coming out brown in some cases.

Targeting the end of summer for launch, the scientists are optimistic about the product’s chances in the competitive hair dye market.

Using mostly natural ingredients, the blackcurrant based dye could be popular amongst those experiencing reactions to more synthetic options.

Experimenting through the safety net of a hair salon is often deemed the safest substitute here, but even then things can go wrong.

If you have been let down by a hair or beauty professional, you may be entitled to a No Win No Fee compensation claim. Contact us today for independent, expert legal advice from our specialist lawyers.
