So What is Organic Hair Color?

There are a number of hair color brands on the market today that claim to be “organic” and “all natural.” Since the day I started my business I’ve been searching for a hair color brand that lives up to these claims. Unfortunately the cosmetic industry is unregulated, so when it comes to hair color, these claims tend to be only partially true. Permanent, oxidative hair color always has some synthetic and chemical compounds - deemed necessary by the manufacturers - to provide professionals with the color control that clients have come to expect of professional services.

Over the years, I have tried a number of different ammonia-free hair coloring products that claim to be “organic” or “all natural.” I have always returned to Organic Colour Systems. Organic Colour Systems was one of the first ammonia-free hair color brands to replace many of the synthetic ingredients in their hair color with plant-based ingredients. Organic Colour Systems has a very low amount of PPDs in their oxidative color and is rich in certified organic ingredients, amino acids and nutrients to keep your hair healthy, strong and shiny. While I’m confident that I'm using the least toxic professional products available, I never stop searching for new advances in hair color chemistry. For my clients with PPD sensitivities, I also carry PPD-free and PTD-free hair coloring options. Because I sincerely want to do what’s best for my clients, I also have strategies to help individuals gracefully transition out of artificial color completely.

What Makes Me Different?

  • I care deeply about the health of my clients and our planet.

  • I love to learn and share my knowledge, so please ask questions during your appointment.

  • I only use, recommend, and sell products from companies that have similar values and ethics to myself.

  • I carefully select hair care products that do not contain parabens, carcinogens, pesticides, or synthetic fragrances.

  • To protect my health and contribute to a healthier salon environment, I do not perform chemical texture services (such as keratin treatments, relaxers, and perms) that release toxic substances like formaldehyde and ammonia into the air and water.
