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.

I found everyone very pleasant and helpful.

Mr P C | Leicestershire

Just to say big THANK YOU for your time yesterday. You have explained things very clearly and easy to understand.

I felt you are very good at what you doing and you took your time with me, despite you knew this was more likely to fail. I felt very comfortable with your over the phone especially that English is not my first language and you are very friendly and patient. I spoke to others about my child’s accident and you were THE BEST PERSON to speak to! Just wanted you to know that.
