* A LIST OF trendy products NOT Used will be forthcomming. Professional and non professional both will be listed. As well as a list of new products used - after they are first tested to see if they pan out - with results and commentary on each.
There are a few new products out for me to try - that look interesting and fun. There have been many without PPD for over 10 years available to be sold to the Public as well as Professionals, but I see some brand new ones, Make sure you just read the fine print and check the ingredients list, many I noted are incomplete. I am obligated to try every new product that comes out that presents itself as Clean, low chemical non toxic or zero man made chemicals.
If you are serious about your hair or scalp, want your hair to stop falling out and start growing, or just concerned about your health in general or suffer from allergies or other illnesses or just do not want to use unnecessary toxic chemicals then you can schedule an appointment. Scheduling a consultation appointment is the - only way to do this type of work.

I wanted to present the cleanest environment for people with illnesses so i thought up the name Organic Haircoloring and Holistic Salon Services. No amonia was EVER used. No toxic chemicals, non ppd containing haircolors were always offered. No resorcinol, some natural peroxides were offered. No heavy metals from mineral clays. No metalic salts, sulfates, metal processing, parabens or other toxic P.S. No gluten (joke), etc, you will hear more later after certain companies USING THE WORDS ORGANIC AND HOLISTIC are taken to task. I HAVE ALWAYS HAD A COPYWRITE AT THE BOTTOM OF THIS WEBSITE UNDER THIS DOMAIN NAME.. and C.A.H.T. Concept.
**Before this website was born, There was never any ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR BRANDS. THERE WAS NEVER any such CONCEPT AS "ORGANIC HAIRCOLORING" or even the two WORDS USED together "ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR" was not in existnce before this website was born. Nor had the word HOLISTIC ever been used in describing a haircolor, hair salon or spa service. So all of the Companies advertising themselves as Organic haircolor must STOP NOW and FIND ANOTHER NAME TO CHANGE TO. Like wise any Salons advertising themselves as Organic Haircoloring Salon Must stop and change their names also. It is the Haircolor company that is to blame for this...There has always been a Copywrite on this website.
AS I MENTIONED BEFORE MANY TIMES, THE ONLY WORDS I COULD THINK UP TO DESCRIBE WHAT I DO was Organic Haircoloring and Holistic Spa Service.
THIS IS and has always been my personal idea, concept and INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY and there was always a Copywrite on the bottom of this website. "When I say ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR, I MEAN IT" and I personally know more about creating it and using it than anyone, because I started creating it over 35 years ago. BEFORE THEN THERE WERE ONLY "Natural hair coloring, natural hair dyes and natural hair salons.

NOTES: When buying products - Don't go for the Trendy Words. Many sneaky and pushy researchers have called to get information so they could start their own hair color lines. One recently not only stole the exact words I used to describe PPD Free haircolor to her over the phone. She said oh: you mean PPD Free is natural and organic. I said no, "It is 'better for you". Now I see they use this same sentence as their advertising line. Along with the other line I had in my website: "So you can look and feel your best".
And alot of other lines were crossed over too.
There has always been a copywrite at the bottom of each page on this website. When I say "IT IS BETTER FOR YOU, I MEAN MY HAIRCOLOR and herbal products. When I said "SO YOU CAN LOOK AND FEEL YOUR BEST" - This refers to my clients who are sick, suffering already and / or RECOVERING OR DEALING WITH CHRONIC ILLNESSES. I come to their home, am a medical professional for over 25 years and fully licensed and certified to do out-patient, (in home), hospice as well as salon work. So they - my clients can Look and feel their best. While they are dealing with a health situation. So to that MR company I say: "Please, Think up your own ideas, and if you are going to steal, please use your own words at least".
Additionally, this woman researcher kept insisting to know the name of one of the products I use, I said, I have my own made for me. She persisted: Your site says you use many other haircolor brands, She said like what, tell me a name of one, give me a name, so I did - thinking it was still a prospective client with an allergy possibly to that brand, (normally I can tell by seeing someone right off), I told her the name of one of the PPD Free Lines I use. She said: very excitably almost hyperventilating "OH YOU MEAN PPD FREE IS ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR?", I said No, no. ..Ah "It is better for you".
NOW - I MEANT - IF YOU HAD an ALLERGY TO PPD. PPD FREE chemicals replacing PPD are certainly N O T NATURAL and/or Organic. I meant, Only Certain types of individuals can not tolerate PPD, due to their specific allergy to PPD. IF THEY ARE ALLERGIC TO the PPD formuation. Now in saying that PPD Free haircolors are NOT NON - ALLERGENIC, also it is made of man made chemicals, and some researchers say : It is more toxic than PPD. So,
DO YOUR RESEARCH don't just follow the Trends.
**** Please See the PPD and PPD FREE tab. But the choice is yours. By the way:
This brand new copy cat company also copied E salon's set up (see their website) and the idea of Carol's Daughter (using a child - daughter and mother idea) even though - the company is a VENTURE CAPITALIST created company. They work with a salon in San Francisco, "I know one of their clients" as a matter of fact. This salon is not organic as a matter of fact quite the opposite it has a High Chemical Service Salon reputation. They sell their reproduced products with alot of hype and for alot of money.
You will see them on t.v. and the internet. They have alot of advertising money as I said the company was created by a venture capitalist as a new venture and funded by other venture capitalists, get it. They are not innovative - as they claim and did not come up with the idea of selling PPD Free haircolor, PPD Free color has been around for over 15 years and has been available to the public and salons both. Now, If they had ever used it in their salon in San Francisco before they would have already known about it before and would not have to call me and get the idea, thinking it is organic.
By the way it is easy and much much much less expensive to get PPD Free haircolor on line at Amazon or Ebay, even at the drug store they have it. Plus the exact same one I told the researcher about, which she used as a benchmark to copy (copycat) it.
Here, we use NO UNNECESSARY DRYING HERBS or MINERALS, OR FOODS LIKE GRAPEFRUIT, or HERBS that REALLY DO NOTHING. EVEN ROSEMARY IS VERY DRYING. Let us stop and think about it for a minute. What good does grapefruit do for your hair in a haircolor? First ask yourself what exactly do these specific ingredients do in a haircolor or product, now ask yourself after you find this out, would it really work that BENEFICIAL way in this formula or - would the amount be too small to do anything anyway. Would it be more drying if used. Is it for real or just to get your attention so they can toss in the word organic or natural to describe their product.
F. Y. I.: "GREEN WASHING"
Did you know Only VERY VERY SMALL AMOUNTS OF EXTRACTS ARE USED IN CHEMICAL HAIRCOLOR BRANDS, so, SO THE HERBS REALLY DO NOT DO ANYTHING OR MAKE ANY DIFFERENCE. (THIS IS HOW IT REALLY WORKS). THE BASIC FORMULAS ALREADY EXIST AND MOSTLY EVERYONE i.e.: (HAIRCOLOR MANUFACTURERS) USE this BASE FORMULA or ONE SIMILAR currently available in the industry. The rest is alot of BOLOGNIA. I KNOW because I had PPD Free haircolor made for me by a few different manufacturers. When they could not get the herbs I wanted to use, It was explained to me why and how it works. And the amount used - does not do anything, makes no difference it is so small... "It is just to put on the package" I was told.
BY THE WAY: HERE IS WHAT A REAL HERBALIST SAYS ABOUT THESE PARTICULAR TRENDY HERBS AND THEIR USE IN HAIRCOLOR OR HAIR PRODUCTS. OK:
HAIRCOLORS STATING THEY HAVE GINSENG AND THE PURPOSE IS TO REPAIR SPLIT ENDS. AH, HELLO: Ginseng does not repair split ends, sorry but it DOES NOT. Excuse me, you are DOING THE GREENWASHING DANCE. As for keratin, expecially hydrolized keratin it is not Vegan. So how can they advertise their product under Natural, Organic or Vegan.
The only thing Korean Red could do for scalp skin is add male hormones to your scalp skin, which is not so good for women because it can cause cancer in women and should not be used by certain individuals. But, I guess such a small amount is used that it would not matter anyway.
I never use minerals such as CLAYS on the hair. Besides I found alot of people were actually allergic to it - having it put on their heads, there are several other reasons why I don't use it besides that. You may find out a few of the reasons too, if you use it.
NOTE: (any company with the name MINERAL in it usually has Clay in the formula).
The sneaky manufacturers did this: They FIGURED OUT THAT THE WORD ORGANIC is derived from the way in which the plants were grown (organic certified standards, soil 2 -3 years organic fertilizer. So if they put in a few organically grown plants into their haircolor, they think they can call their product organic. IN MY BOOK THEY ARE POSERS, BECAUSE I KNOW THE TRUTH AND I CREATED BY THIS DOMAIN CREATION and humble website, I actually created the name and concept, which has been stolen and misused...
THE words: ORGANIC HAIRCOLORING SALON and HOLISTIC spa SERVICES I created- and the concept I created. Before there was no ORGANIC HAIR COLOR on the market....years ago, There was only one company using the name Organic on their box but not in the title, but when I called the main representative, she said, when questioned,: WHAT DOES ORGANIC MEAN. I SAID, "YOU DON'T EVEN KNOW, IT IS SHOWN ON YOUR BOX" SHE SAID, SHE WAS ONLY THE DISTRIBUTOR... So you see these companies now even go so far as to say they are organic and grow organic herbs on their land. So what.?..What is the difference between using certified organic herbs into your haircolor if you have a farm or not..? . The point was so they could try to LOOK sooo organic.... THINK ABOUT IT: YOU DON'T NEED A FARM........ HAIRCOLOR, OR ORGANIC ANYTHING IS ONLY ABLE TO BE CALLED ORGANIC due to the organic way the plant was grown, by organic growing methods.
In my humble opinion: So what, if you put some organic herbs into a pile of chemicals it is still chemical and SHOULD NOT be called ORGANIC.
THIS IS NOT WHY I CALLED IT THIS. I CREATED THIS NAME AND PHRASE BECAUSE IT WAS THE ONLY WAY I COULD THINK UP TO DESCRIBE WHAT I DID.....CLEAN, PURE HAIRCOLOR BY A MEDICINAL HERBALIST WHO MAKES COSMETICS AND HAIRCOLOR FROM PURE ORGANIC PLANTS AND CLEAN MATERIALS FOR PEOPLE WHO HAVE MEDICAL ISSUES. I HAND CRAFT PRODUCTS FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN NOT USE OTHER PRODUCTS, DUE TO THEIR SPECIFIC ALLERGIES OR ILLNESSES, CUSTOM MADE AND PROPRIETARY.
IN THE MEANTIME.
Feel free to USE THE LINKS I PROVIDED TO LOOKUP THE PRODUCT BEFORE YOU BUY it to check it FOR TOXICITY LEVELS. or go to EWG.ORG for name of product or google each ingredient off the box. Make sure to check the ingredient list AGAINST THE LAST TAB on the page titled: PPD and PPD Free. I give names used for PPD, as sometimes sneaky manufacturers try to slide in PPD by another name. As well as PTD and PTDS, other names are used for the same chemical blend. "NOTE they also can cause allergies just like PPD so always do a preliminary test.
Note: OFTEN PEOPLE WILL HAVE A REACTION THE SECOND OR THIRD TIME THEY USE PTD's and PTDS, it tends to be a bit more of a culmulative allergic reaction. I've seen it happen many times, enough to make note of it not being an accident.
and the allergy or sensitivity is a bit worse, people often break out and it lasts longer and spreads.
Similiar to PPD but a delayed reaction. The first time I saw it it was a shocker, Then on another person and another.
I was stunned, because they were different colors and even a different product line, the third time and no PPD was used, how could this happen? Then when my fly in complained on 2 separate times, with a burning feeling - on a PPD Free haircolor line, and no enzymes were used and there was no other reasons why this feeling was happening to her, that was it. I knew I was dealing with a PTD allergy situation...Geez - since then I totally stopped using that brand and the other brand with PTDS, just to be on the safe side and no more pain and suffering for the poor ladies. Like I said, it was several ladies.
But slightly more people have allergies to PPD and for now, it is more common. But, be carefull as I said it can sneak up on you at any time, one time you will be fine and all seems well and safe, then on another time a allergy can appear. As I said, it happened on several different people, so I know it was not an isolated incident or a singular haircolor line or developer. It was the PPD Free lines that produced the ALLERGY....SEVERAL DIFFERENT TIMES.....
*** I AM GOING TO TELL YOU THE TRUTH OF THE WHOLE COSMETIC, ESPECIALLY THE HAIRCOLOR INDUSTRY, IT IS ALL MARKETING..
and lots of Money you have to spend on marketing - CAPITALIZING ON trends, hype and MARKETING...Even a cheap product can be very good.
The HERBAL EXTRACTS LISTED DO NOTHING... I WAS TOLD SPECIFICALLY WHEN I WANTED TO ADD CERTAIN HERBS TO MY HAIRCOLOR PRODUCT I WAS HAVING A LAB MAKE FOR ME PER MY FORMULA, AND THEY TOLD ME AFTER ACTING LIKE THEY COULD ADD ANYTHING AND MAKE ANYTHING FOR ME TO MY REQUEST. I WAS THEN LATER ON TOLD THAT THEY COULD NOT SOURCE MY HERBS I REQUESTED FOR MY FORMULA. I SAID WHY, IT IS EZ I CAN SOURCE THEM FOR YOU. FINALLY MY CLIENT REP CALLED ME BACK AND SAID, OH, THE HERBS we put in our haircoloring in the industry actually DO NOT DO ANYTHING, SO WE ONLY OFFER CERTAIN HERBAL EXTRACTS THAT ARE AVAILABLE FOR THE INDUSTRY. THEY NEVER USE MUCH ANYWAY. SHE SAID, IT WAS JUST SO THEY CAN PUT the herb names on the box for show.
AN ATTORNEY TOLD ME, WHEN I ASKED WHERE DO I GO TO PROVE MY HANDCRAFTED PRODUCT'S CLAIMS ARE TRUE: HE SAID: OH YOU DON'T HAVE TO DO THAT. IT IS NOT NECESSARY. I SAID WHAT "YOU MEAN YOU CAN JUST SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT" HE SAID YES, AND IF IT WORKS OUT THE PEOPLE WILL BUY MORE. THIS now EXPLAINS WHY ALOT OF THE PRODUCTS I BOUGHT, NEVER WORKED.
DID YOU KNOW THIS WEBSITE WAS THE VERY FIRST " ORGANIC HAIR COLORING SALON " OR WEBSITE EVER...
I actually coined the phrase "Organic Hair Coloring Salon" as well as HOLISTIC SPA SERVICES Before - there were none. One lady in Canada has a Natural salon STARTED years afterward mine, who contacted me for ideas and to share hers with me. To people like this I send love and blessings. Since my website, many other companies trying to copy my idea and many other salons started using the same name. It has now become a trend. I CREATED IT DUE TO THE DECADES OF TRAINING, WORK, EXPERIENCE AND MEDICAL BACKGROUND I HAD PRIOR TO BECOMING A COSMETOLOGIST. NOW A DAYS ANYTHING ORGANIC IS A TREND.
I BELONG TO MANY GROUPS THAT FIGHT POLLUTION AND REALLY ARE ECO FRIENDLY.
Do you know what Greenwashing is?
.... MY IDEA OF WELLNESS and organics in the haircolor industry TOOK OFF.....But it takes money....
ALOT OF PROFESIONALS THAT ARE REALLY IN THE HEALTH AND WELLNESS INDUSTRY WORKING WITH ECOLOGY AND ORGANICS
GOT TOGETHER AND FORMED a few ORGANIZATIONS TO FIGHT BIG BUSINESS.
To be fair, I already told one new company that they should take the words HOLISTIC and WELLNESS off of their advertising. IT IS A CHEMICAL HAIRCOLOR BIG MANUFACTURER. They should not be advertising with those words....at all in any way. This new company is actually owned by another big haircolor manufacturer, but gave themselves a new look and name. They put the word organic and holistic and wellness in their advertising as well as are now advertising under ORGANIC HAIRCOLORING and natural and vegan, etc.
Even worse: Another company now states that they are a farm that grows a few medicinal herbs that they now use in their haircolor. I looked at their herbs. Pffff. Its about a blip" No substance. First off, many herbs do the same thing. Secondly, the herbs and extracts they choose are mediocre and even should not be used. But this company figured out that the word "Organic" is used to describe the way foods are grown, there is no such word in haircoloring or other products. Also Bio dynamic farming is not new, it is also a type of organic farming practice. Just that, it HAS NO BEARING ON ANY PRODUCT OR HAIRCOLOR... I will explain more later, or better yet, another famous herbalist, activist will be posting on her FACEBOOK PAGE about this company.
The main reason I am like so many others in my circle are angry is because this company is not only trying to act organic, but they are also using the word holistic and wellness. THEY HAVE NO RIGHT AT ALL TO USE THESE WORDS, THESE WORDS ARE USED FOR MEDICAL PROVIDERS THAT HAVE SPENT TENS OF THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS AND YEARS OF STUDY TO OBTAIN THEIR CERTIFICATIONS, LICENSES AND DESIGNATIONS.
Again, the reason I created the use of these words was to describe what I did. Being in the medical profession, an herbalist and Alternative and Holistic Health Care Practioner, using Organic Herbs in my high content organic products. So the mis use of the name I created is very disturbing.
You will find out more soon ....BIG CHANGES are comming to the entire Cosmetic Industry...
In the meantime. Feel free to use the LAST TAB
Print it out and take to the drugstore or wherever you buy haircolor and LOOK ON THE INGREDIENTS LIST TO CHECK TO SEE IF THESE INGREDIENTS ARE LISTED.
Just like: if you are lactose free, don't drink lactose containing milk or products;
I SAY THIS BECAUSE THERE are ONE OR TWO EXCELLENT very low cost PRODUCTS THAT are PPD FREE, which are sold in The DRUGSTORE....Yes...it is true.. They are actually better than what is being sold for extremely high prices..for only a few bucks...
i CAN NOT BELEIVE THE GALL. I JUST READ THE ADVERTISING OF A SO CALLED ORGANIC HAIR COLOR COMPANY, WHICH STATE THEY HAV NO THIS AND NO THAT.. NO PPD, NO ETHANOLAMINE, NO METALS, NO SULFATES. THEN I LOOK ON THEIR INGREDIENT LIST, which was hard to find, finally,I see ALL OF THESE CHEMICALS THEY JUST STATED THEY DO NOT HAVE, THEY ARE THE SAME CHEMICALS, BUT UNDER A DIFFERENT NAME. (THERE ARE MANY NAMES FOR THE SAME THING, OR CLOSE RELATIVES). BUT REALLY THE SAME CHEMICALS. I SHOULD HAVE KNOW WITH THEM, THIS IS THE SAME COMPANY THAT STATED THEY HAD NO PPD (AFTER I had been making a big stink about the dangers for ten years), THEN I CALLED THEM AFTER READING THEY ARE PPD FREE. AS I KNEW THEY WERE NOT.....BECAUSE I CAN READ and I knew their product, back then they were the first fako Eco non toxic haircolor co. THEY THEN SAID OH YES THEY ARE PPD FREE, I TOLD THEM I KNEW THAT WAS NOT TRUE, SINCE I HAVE THEIR PRODUCT RIGHT IN MY HAND. SHE THEN STATED, OH, WE ARE GOING TO CHANGE THE FORMULA... I SAID, WELL YOU DID NOT YET,, SO ??? WHY ARE YOU ADVERTISING AS SUCH AND YOU JUST TOLD ME THAT YOU DID NOT HAVE THAT INGREDIENT IN YOUR HAIRCOLOR. SHE BLAMED IT ON THE OWNER, STATING SHE WANTS TO CHANGE THE FORMULA AND IS TRYING TO DO THAT.
WELL THEY JUST COPIED MY WEBSITE INFO, OF BAD INGREDIENTS AND THINGS I DO USE, DOWN TO USING FLOWER ESSENCES AND A FEW OTHER OTHER INGREDIENTS. THAT IS WHY I TOOK DOWN ALOT OF MY PRODUCT INGREDIENTS. BECAUSE THEY ARE NOT THE ONLY ONES, WHO JUST COPY CAT.
***This is why I posted the last tab "PPD and PPD Free Information" FEEL FREE TO USE IT. And beleive it, you will see that the companies ACTUALLY DO HAVE THE THINGS THEY SAY THEY DON'T HAVE....Just by a different name. See it for yourself...How stupid do they think people are? What an Insult.. I also found that the ingredients are different on the box once you get it..as when you see the add.
Gluten free the same thing -If you suffer from Celiac disease THEN YOU CAN NOT EAT GLUTEN.
If you want PPD Free, *(ONLY NECESSARY in the event that you happen to be PPD INTOLERANT) as the PPD limit is only UP TO 3% now days. In the beginning it was 6% over 10 years ago. When I first started doing activism in cosmetics it was 6% and up for PPD content. Transparency in Cosmetics.
I SPECIALIZE IN WORKING WITH ALLERGIES AND FORMULATING ORGANIC COSMETICS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS.
See: In PPD tab, along with OTHER WORDS THAT MEAN THE SAME thing AS PPD and PPD Free tab.
