As the sole proprietor of Color Me Beautifully she exclusively uses Eco-cert certified Organic Hair Color. Her mission is to provide all hair color services through the use of non-toxic chemical ingredients and follows a philosophy that stands against the use of Propylene Glycol, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Sodium Lauret Sulfate (SLES), Diethanolamine (DEA), Methyl, Propyl, Butyl, Ethyl Paraben and nickel; ingredients that have proven to be major culprits in skin irritations.
Standard, non-organic hair dye is loaded with all sorts of questionably safe chemicals: ammonia, formaldehyde, sodium laurel sulphates and parabens, to name a few. Many years of chemical abuse leaves hair less shiny and soft. The Organic Base Color she specializes in nourishes the hair without drying or damaging it. The use of natural and essential oils hydrate and protect the hair. It does not contain ammonia, resorcinol or paraphenylenediamine. The results are translucent color that has an extremely shiny finish with 100% grey coverage. Color holds and lasts true to tone. Additionally all shampoo, conditioners and styling products used are of high quality eco-cert certified organic ingredients.
Your hair color service is exponentially more enjoyable, since the anti-oxidant blend of aloe vera leaf, natural and essential oils, flowers and seeds in the organic dye doesn’t sting your eyes or give the same headache-inducing effects of the harsh-smelling, ammonia-filled dye you get in most salons. Her front, large window, studio is private and has lots of natural light and a comfortable relaxing atmosphere. She will even customize the background music to your personal preference to make you feel relaxed and pampered.
