Asthma and Hairdressing Salons

The annual cost of Asthma to The NHS is approximately £1 billion million. The indirect cost to society, due to time off work and loss of productivity is £6 billion. Ammonia is a trigger for Asthmatic symptoms so why are hairdressing salons full of it?

Healthy salons – A breath of fresh air
We don’t like ammonia. We don’t like the smell or what it does to hair and we never use it. We believe in using natural ingredients that smell amazing and create a healthier, ammonia-free salon that is a nice place to work.

Our salon is – literally – a breath of fresh air to the hairdressing industry. Certified organic ingredients. By using more certified organic ingredients and fewer chemicals we are able to colour hair as naturally as possible.

We combine the best of British know-how and natural ingredients to create hair colour with absolutely no ammonia, resorcinol or parabens. Most of the hair products we use are made in the UK, using organic ingredients.

High performing products
The hair colouring products we use are gentler on hair and lock in colour, moisture and goodness to every strand. So not only is our salon healthier but our client’s hair looks naturally healthier and glossier with radiant colour.

Is dry shampoo bad for your hair?

Is dry shampoo bad for your hair? I guess the answer is that it depends on the ingredients.

The problem with dry shampoo is that you spray it directly on to the roots of the hair and rub it in to the scalp, this is of particular concern if the chemicals in the dry shampoo are left on the scalp for several days.

In leaving theses chemicals on the scalp for several days you are increasing the risk of the skins pores becoming blocked and more worryingly the chemicals being absorbed in to the skin.

If the pores on the scalp and the hair follicles become clogged with dry shampoo this could inhibit hair growth this could be of particular concern for anyone suffering from alopecia.

Many of the chemicals in dry shampoo have the potential to aggravate dermatitis eczema and other such conditions.

If you feel the need to use dry shampoo then I would recommend using a product made from more natural and gentle ingredients, one such product that has recently become available is Revive made by organic colour systems. Revive is based on organic and natural ingredients making it less toxic and kinder to the skin, its also much lighter in texture and so less likely to clog the pores and follicles.
