A color process absent of volatile gases releases energy evenly throughout the hair for enhanced precision and control. Replacing synthetic, chemical fragrances are custom essential oil blends added to the hair color formulation just before application which creates a more natural, aromatic color experience for you and your clients.
Key Benefits of Organic Hair Color with Organic Color Systems
The oil base of the color is alkaline so it raises the pH of the hair, but at the same time it acts as a conditioning agent softening the hair’s cuticle and allowing it to be opened with gentle heat. This eliminates the need for ammonia. Ammonia is a very effective way of opening the cuticle, however it opens the cuticle so much that while the color is going in essential moisture and proteins are going out.
Lower percentage of PPD’s
Eliminating ammonia allows us to use the lowest percentage of PPD’s possible while still achieving a permanent result. Ammoniated color requires much higher loads of PPD’s since ammonia breaks down the natural pigments in the hair when mixed with peroxide. Therefore, ammoniated colors require a lot more pigment – otherwise it would all wash out at thebowl.
Although the amount of PPD in Organic Color Systems is low enough for us to advertise our hair color as “PPD Free”, we feel that doing so would be disingenuous. Please note that permanent hair colors contain some PPD’s regardless of what they may advertise, but many have a low enough percentage to enable them to legally advertise as “PPD Free”. As a salon professional, you should only rely on your own, independently administered,especially for clients that give any indication of allergic reactions to PPD’s before applying any permanent hair color.
Organic Hair Color that Contains Truly Certified Organic Ingredients
Organic Color Systems is the only permanent color line available today with certified organically grown ingredients. It is as natural as possible, while still allowing you to obtain professional results.
Us of a natural Alkaline Agent
Our organic hair color line contains an alkaline agent that is naturally derived from coconut oil rather than ammonia or other synthetics as our pH adjuster.
Key Difference between ammoniated color and Organic Hair Color
Ammonia blows open the cuticle taking the hair into the 10.5 – 12 range on the pH scale. We use a moisturizing oil base with a small amount of ethanolamine to open the cuticle to a pH level of 9. We are able to close the cuticle back down with our Organic Care line returning the hair to it’s isometric point of 5.5, which is the ideal pH of hair.
Key Difference between Organic Color Systems and other non-ammonia color lines
We commend other color lines that have removed ammonia from their formulas as it is an extremely harsh chemical and no longer needs to be in hair color. Unfortunately, the vast majority have replaced it with ethanolamine which poses no health concerns as long as the amount used is reasonable. However, because they are only replacing the ammonia with ethanolamine and with no other alkaline base, they are using a very high percentage and consequently have not decreased the pH level that the hair is taken to, so the same amount of damage is occuring.
Organic Color Systems Activators vs. other Peroxide Developers
All permanent hair colors contain oxidative pigments which means that they have to come into contact with oxygen in order to materialize. Peroxide is simply H2O2.with an additional oxygen molecule that can be split off easily to activate the pigments. Our peroxide is pharmaceutical grade which means it is the same peroxide found in eye drops, and therefore gentler then industrial grade peroxide.
Our Treatments vs. other hair treatments on the market
Our treatments are reconstructors and they work inside the hair shaft rather than applying a high percentage of silicone to the outside of the hair shaft. Although that gives the hair shine and a silky feel, it is entirely cosmetic and eventually becomes detrimental as it builds up on the hair shaft and does not allow color to penetrate. By doing a
