Nontoxic Hair Color is the right choice for everyone!

Kristen Gaffney - Tuesday, May 15, 2012
Walking through the doors of a traditional salon, clients are often met with the smell of amonia and a host of other harsh chemicals they will inhale for the duration of their so called ‘relaxing’ experience.   

Hair dye might be one of the most toxic beauty products out there.  But how bad is it?  Ask yourself, how can something that smells so toxic be safe?   

Some experts estimate 75 percent of women over 40 color their hair, which means consistent contact with harsh irritants and carcinogens, such as ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, and coal tar–derived p-Phenylenediamine.

 Adolescent girls are beginning to color their hair younger than ever.  The toxic fumes and chemicals in hair dyes are especially dangerous for pregnant women and young girls who are going through puberty since these chemicals mimic hormones in the body and can send the endocrine system into major confusion.

 What’s the alternative?  Pure Elements an Organic Salon offers natural hair color services free from toxic fumes and dangerous chemicals.  Our color systems will help you look and feel your best while never having to worry about compromising your health. 

 Pure Elements an Organic Salon uses Organic Color Systems and Simply Organic hair color in our natural hair color processes.  

Organic Color Systems contains no ammonia, formaldehyde, sodium laurel sulphates or parabens. What it does contain are good-for-you ingredients like a full spectrum of vitamins and plant extracts, certified organic ingredients and anti-oxidants. The line is cruelty free, vegan, and eco friendly.

By choosing Pure Elements an Organic Salon, you are choosing a healthier and more responsible way to beauty.
