Laundry Soap:

Costco   Has a nice newer laundry eco detergent called Kirkland Signature.:   Also Walgreens carries green laundry soap.   Nice Dish Washing soap at Costco:  
Kirkland Free and Clear, Environmentally Responsible and Eco Magnolia and Lilly.


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".  Some folks do well on whole wheat products.

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 have a specific allergy 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 brands do not last as long and are 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:



---------------------------------------------
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 perfect either  - OK.  They are PPT
(T stands for Toulene). 


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 use the same basic formulas. This is true.  Certain Key ingredients are used with slight variations for looking good in Advertising. Seriously, whatever is "POPULAR"  at the time, will be more readily available to use.  Like Keratin, which has been used in just about everything for the past 8 years, it is popular  and hair color manufacturing companies as well as hair care manufacturing companies, will have it available to use.

 Be aware PPD, ammonia Free brands usually do not last as long as the PPD  and ammonia containing brands (especially on white or gray hair) and have health concerns and issues of their own, some say deeming them much more dangerous than PPD.  Also some more natural brands do not last as long.  Some semi perm haircolors have no PPD.  Color jobs lasting 2-6 weeks before fading.

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 larger tube. 

GOOD OLD EBAY has lots of PPD Free, Ammonia Free, Resorcinol Free, Paraben Free, etc. etc "Free" Brands.  They are called: The "Free"  Catagory Brands.   Like the Brand:  A free  (Afree) get it - Good name choice right, Made for Professionals by Dikson.  Afree comes in a Gigantic Tube, about 4 OUNCES of cream color. Prices are Reasonable considering size of tube. 


Another brand sold Ebay and Amazon:
I.C.O.N.

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

 This is their description:

I.C.O.N.   is a PROFESSIONAL HAIRCOLOR LINE.

I.C.O.N.  elevates the color service with this permanent oxidation hair color cream; a versatile system that guarantees top-notch results and maximum grey coverage. The result of the color service is glistening, lasting and radiant hues drenched with shine. Discover the vanguard of conscious color. Ammonia free Paraphenylenediamine free (ppd) Lasting color between color services Perfect gray coverage Gentle, creamy action on the scalp Hair fiber integrity Maximum brilliance Nourished hair Specially selected ingredients. Worth trying it if you want an Ammonia Free, PPD Free, brand.   Not organic.  The reason I am even listing PPD Free hair color is because: lsome hair color companies are using the name I created: Organic Hair Color   and using only one of the products they also gleaned from me, from this very website, which was a PPD Free / ammonia free hair color.   So this is just FYI.

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

Note:  There are now  tons of  PPD FREE  haircolor brands on the market  AND  TONS OF NEW brands containing some good oils and fashionable  ingredients. 

 Be AWARE,    PPD FREE   IS   NOT ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR IN ANY WAY, SHAPE OR FORM and should never be listed as such or referred to as such.  It may be listed as some other category and should be listed as either: Low Chemical, Free Brands.  If it falls into the "Natural" Category STANDARDS then it must adhere to the set rules.  If it falls into Organic category, the same thing.

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 only 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 available.  But, I have used them all and tested them all. I now get much better, cleaner and far superior haircolor than ANY BRAND NAME- THAT IS LISTED ANYWHERE ON THIS WEBSITE but that is my personal opinion and my personal choice for the type of work I do - it is a needs must.  FOR WHAT I DO - IT MUST BE REAL AND IT MUST BE CLEAN for the type of work I do on my medical referral clients, even if it is just herbal, IT MUST BE TESTED and in many ways by myself first- before I can use it.

Newer Brands, and better Ingredients yet....  Yes even better:  

 THERE IS Another BRAND NEW HAIR COLOR COMPANY I REALLY LIKE:

 COMES IN ALL COLORS - THAT ARE FABULOUS, Truly Awesome.     
VERY, very  LUSH, RICH, AND LEAVES HAIR SUPER SHINNY, THICK AND GLOSSY AND 
SUPER NATURAL LOOKING.   THIS BRAND IS  SUPERIOR.
IT works very fast   30-45 minutes.    TOTALLY COVERS GRAYS.
IT IS ALL NATURAL     it has NO CHEMICALS AT ALL.  TOTALLY COVERS GRAYS.   IT IS MADE FROM 100% un treated PLANT MATERIAL AND it has ALL NATURAL INGREDIENTS.  NO PROCESSED INGREDIENTS..
You can find it on Good Old E-BAY  FOR  ABOUT   $17.00 PER:  100 Ml, yes 100 Mls. Now   MOST BRANDS ARE 60-75 Ml  tops. So, that is alot.    In three weeks I will post a link for you.
I don't recommend many other herbal products, besides my own, so this will be the  exception.
