HEY, DO YOU WANT TO "Really" KNOW HOW TOXIC THAT COSMETIC, SUNSCREEN, MAKEUP OR  HAIRCOLOR BRAND is?

Then:   Just submit the name of the product to:

WWW. SKIN DEEP.COM 

The cosmetic website for E.W.G.     
It is really Activism in Cosmetics by putting the REAL INFO UP FOR EVERYONE TO SEE AND DECIDE FOR THEMSELVES WHAT TO USE. SO YOU CAN BE AN ACTIVIST TOO just like me, by simply submitting to Skin Deep the name of the product.

Additionally,
YOU CAN also   SUBMIT THE NAME OF ANY HAIRCOLOR BRAND, COSMETICS, SUNSCREENS TO:

www.campaign4safecosmetics.com

www.thegoodguide.com

www.Cosmeticdatabase.com            YOU CAN TYPE IN ANY INGREDIENT FROM THE LIST ON YOUR PACKAGE AND LOOK IT UP..

or
Cosmeticingredients.org.



Laundry Soap:
Costco   has a newer one than fit which I really liked, but I don't think Costco carries any longer, as I can not find it.  Their newer laundry cleaners by Kirkland are pretty good as well as many other brands there.  Also Walgreens carries green laundry soap also. 

My home favorates are:  Borax  (find at local Walgreen type stores as well as Molly Stone.  Also, you can simply mix up baking soda and vinegar are great cleansers for sink and tile, let sit a bit then scrub.  So shinny a sink as ever you have seen.

Gluten Free Foods sources, Catalogs are free, best pricing.  
NOTE:   UNLESS YOU ARE GLUTEN INTOLERANT and SINCE YOU ARE ONLY PUTTING IT ON YOUR HAIR AND NOT SCALP ON THE SURFACE, THERE IS NO NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IT.  IT IS JUST ANOTHER GIMMIK (Trending).

Fyi:  If you are not suffering from Celiacs disease you do not need to stop eating gluten  or use gluten free products.   This is another scare tactic, marketing Gimmick used on a diet "Trend".

Haircolor Study Notes: 


What is the MOST DANGEROUS INGREDIENT IN NAIL POLISH? It used to be formaldehyde.  DO YOU KNOW?
it is called:   TOULENE   
 PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME THIS QUESTION:  
        NOW   WHAT DOES THIS CHEMICAL INGREDIENT HAVE IN COMMON WITH PTD? 
        (PTD is the chemical substitute  used in place of PPD),  PTD CONTAINS TOULENE.
PTD is TOXIC.  PTD IS NOT GOOD FOR YOU -   NOT BETTER FOR YOUR HEALTH THAN PPD.  IT IS A SUPER CHEMICAL SOLVENT. 

 I HAVE BEEN USING IT, STUDYING IT AND TESTING DIFFERENT TYPES OF HAIRCOLOR AND PTD's for WELL OVER 16 YEARS.

That is one reason why you don't need to use PPD Free haircolor unless you are SPECIFICALLY ALLERGIC TO PPD.  OK.  More on that later.
 In addition,

****PTD does not work as well as PPD Containing dyes because it is not as strong, 

I have heard this opinion from several people and PROFESSIONAL STYLISTS TRAININED IN ITALY...THEY HAVE SAID  they don't use PPD Free, because PPD Free does not last as long and is not as versatile or as good in many respects.


 NOTE: 
**  PPD FREE HAIRCOLOR PRODUCTS DEEMED TO HAVE CREATED HEALTH CONCERNS AND ORGAN ISSUES ASSOCIATED WITH THEM.  THE TESTING HAS ALREADY STARTED. SO DON'T THINK IT IS THE SAFEST TYPE OF HAIRCOLOR AROUND. -just keep in in mind.  YOU CAN LOOK THIS UP ONLINE..FOR PAST RESULTS FOUND.
THERE ARE LOTS OF STUDIES ALREADY DONE AND NEW 
TESTING AND STUDIES, BEING UNDERTAKEN.


***Remember: ALWAYS DO A PATCH TEST FIRST  before use it on your head (sensitive scalp),  FOR ANY HAIRCOLORING DYE.
Here is some info on it:


 
BUT:    IN CASE YOU happen to HAVE AN ALLERGY TO PPD,  

Did you know  CERTAIN HAIRCOLOR brands both SEMI PERMANENT COLORS, AND SOME DEMI PERM DO NOT CONTAIN PPD, Not just the level 8 and above, which most people think are free of PPD.  What about other chemicals that replace PPD, not so good either, OK.


IF YOU HAVE ALLERGIES to PPD: THERE ARE OVER 19 Brands available that are PPD FREE, many on the internet  on Amazon or Ebay EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE PROFESSIONAL LINES.  More being created each and every day.   *  The formulators usually all use the same basic formulas. This is true. 

 Be aware PPD, ammonia Free brands usually do not last as long as the PPD  and ammonia containing brands (espeially on white or gray hair) and have health concerns and issues of their own, some say deeming them much more dangerous than PPD.

HERE ARE SOME PLACES TO BUY: ammonia free, PPD Free, paraben free.  You will see lots  more soon - at reasonable prices, better instructions. 


GOT AN ALLERGY TO PPD? Don't want ammonia. Well, One of the newer brands you can also get on AMAZON  is called:
I.C.O.N.   BY: Ecotech.  In the form of a cream haircolor in a large tube. 

Very reasonable in price and quality is good.
PRICE:   $8.99 and FREE SHIPPING:

 This is their description:

----------------------------------

Note:  There are now  tons of  PPD FREE  haircolor brands on the market  AND  TONS OF NEW   containing some good oils and fashionable  ingredients,   BRANDS ON THE MARKET, so I have done my work.    Be AWARE,    PPD FREE   IS   NOT ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR...IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM and should never be listed as such.


ENJOY AND DON'T GET FOOLED OR RIPPED OFF following marketing trends - I know you are trying to find the cleanest and best products, that is why I originally created this website and created the name organic hair coloring salon services, because, I did not know what to call my passion, my idea and my forte.  
I used PPD Free, Ammonia Free haircolor on CERTAIN types of clients.  Due to the type of work I do, I needed to have different types of haircolor.  But, I have used them all and tested them all. I use and get much better, way cleaner and better haircolor than ANY BRAND NAME THAT IS LISTED ANYWHERE ON THIS WEBSITE.
