Getting that beautiful color can be so damaging to your hair and the environment.  According to new research by Japanese chemists, an alternative to hydrogen peroxide is around the corner…and adds a whole new meaning to the word GREEN.

The new discovery is an enzyme from a fungus called Basidiomycete ceriporiopsis that can remove dark pigment from hair.  At the moment it needs a little help from peroxide to do its job, but quantity should be much less than standard bleaching (i.e. less harsh on the hair).

It may take a while before reaching consumers, but this fungus is definitely among us.
