Thank you/ Jazāk Allāh Khayr for contacting Mathabah with your question.

We are requesting you to provide us with the specific name of the products, as well as the manufacturer of the products. Once we have this information, we would be in a better position to give a specific ruling regarding the product after we contact the company as we have questions on the ingredients/ components listed in your question.

In general, kindly note the following regarding hair dye, that the dye or hair-colour used should blend in the hair, not cover the hair [as a coating or shell]. – (See: Fiqh al Ḥalāl wa al Ḥarām by Muftī Khālid Saifulllāh Al Raḥmānī)

It is also worthy to note that a number of ingredients and chemicals even though initially impure in hair products go through a complete transformation which renders the end product pure and permissible in Islam. This is known in jurisprudence as tabdīl al-mahiyah. – (See: Al-Baḥr Al-Rāiq, Vol 1, page 394, Dar Al-Kutub Al-‘Ilmiyyah) [1]

Only Allāh knows best
