Natulique is the only Ecocert certified organic hair colour in the world and is taking Ireland by storm. Natulique was co-founded by Mette Bundgaard from Denmark, who, having been diagnosed with breast cancer in her twenties, found that there was no authentic certified organic hair colour brand on the market.
