* Updated New Findings: I Copied new information from an Outside Website Source on 2/1/18:
I am holding off on offering my opinion on these products below. They are very new and two are really Innovative.
In addition. COMMING out soon. There are three more companies that also have created innovative products, which were not on the market before in any form....which I will report on soon. In fact, As we speak, two are working on a stronger Patents for their ORIGINAL IDEAS.- but you have never heard of their companies yet or the products or ingredients for the products yet.
See below: *New Technology from Clairol. (below) 2/1/18.
* Hairprint (Color Restorer). Another Category of Hair Color Product. *Some Excerpts Copied 10/2017.
Vee, created the title of the Category and the wording: "Better For You Hair color" and Just Better for you Hair color. But, there are - really Dozens of PPD, Ammonia Free, Paraben Free, Free, Gluten Free (laugh), hair color products on the market. Over the Counter too. If you can't find them - I have listed just some of the ones I have used in the past. Many of these products have been out for over 16 plus years - so the technology is hardly new.
When I hear new hair color companies say they invented this new hair color product, it sickens me and most of us in the know. Even Most Hair Stylists know this is a total fabrication. The PPD Free technology and formulation is NOT NEW and is not a "Innovation" either. I have several more I have created names for - which will be comming out soon to the public. Maybe this will help define things a bit more.
BE ASSURED, I USE AND OBTAIN SUPERIOR, TOXIN FREE HAIRCOLORS AND DYES THAT ARE FAR BETTER THAN ANY BRAND NAME LISTED ON THIS WEBSITE. But due to an incident by a company you will read about below, I can not give the name of the best and lowest toxin haircolor brands that I have ever used in the Superior, Toxin Free and/ or Just Better for You hair color categories or Organic Categories.
Please see one of my ideas and procedures that I have used for decades in my Mission:
Vee's hair color recommendations for a healthy planet: Please put all left over hair colors, Toxic chemical based Formulas for the hair, INTO A BAG and into the GARBAGE Container or into a TOXIC WASTE Container. NOT DOWN THE DRAIN. This is so E - Z to do, just remember, IT IS ALL of OUR WATER (AND ALL THE LITTLE CREATURES who are in our custody, care and control, who - can not speak up for themselves, IT IS THEIR WATER TOO) and evenually these toxic chemical will make its way into our food chain. WATER IS LIFE. Thank you.
I urge you to "PLEASE TREAT OUR PLANET IN A more HOLISTIC WAY" as we are a part of this Lovely Planet that takes care of us, so this is just one way of how we can show some respect and give some care back to our Earth.
While my recommendations are aimed mainly for the Licensed Salon Professional - anyone can do this at home too, especially if you are doing: A Permanent wave, Hair Color, Hair Straightening, Tooth Whitening or any toxic chemicals you may be using on your body or in your household. Thank you for listening, Namaste.
Here are some lower chemical hair color suppliers - the prices range from $4.99 up. The Normal range is $9.00 to about $16.00 tops. ** You can get about 3 or more, depending on length of hair & regrowth, color jobs from one box or single tube 60-75 Ml.
If you are a professional, you absolutely can get lower chemical hair color also - for alot less money.
Non-Proffessionals - can also find it at very reasonable prices. So REALLY - please don't think you have to spend your whole pay check on your monthly hair color supplies. Here is my Advice to the consumer:
NEW INFORMATION 2018: "THE BIGGEST, most current and timely NEW NEWS IS BY CLAIROL BELEIVE IT OR NOT" : This addresses my first concern decades ago when I started this website and decades before...I was researching and testing the problem of allergies, since I am a health care provider and work mainly with people with health concerns.
Years ago, My focus became Addressing: ALLERGIES AS WELL AS finding LOWER TOXINS IN CHEMICAL HAIRCOLOR (THIS MEANT - SUBSTITUTING NORMAL HAIRCOLOR INGREDIENTS:
WELL CLAIROL NOW HAS GOTTEN INTO THE "REVOLUTION" (USING THAT REVOLUTION WORD FOR ADVERTISING, Act too). BUT, But, "CLAIROL ACTUALLY HAS SOME NEW IDEAS. BOUND TO HAPPEN, WITH THIS TYPE OF NEWISH and POPULAR TECHNOLOGY EMERGING and being studied"
BUT LET'S GIVE CREDIT WHERE CREDIT IS DUE:They came up with the idea first.....
HATS OFF TO GOOD OLD CLAIROL.....By: .Vee"
* NEW TECHNOLOGY BY CLAIROL. Ah, Say What?
Here are some of my new findings. Chemical Transformations - Tweeking TRADITIONAL HAIR DYE MOLECULES. Molecules well known and used for decades in the industry: (PPD's and PTD's).
But there are, newer things comming in the works now....By other True Innovators..
I CUT THE ARTICLE BELOW FROM CLAIROL'S WEBSITE on ..2/1/18, TAKE A LOOKSEE.
Below is the article: ( * Content copied from anothe, Subject, Website ).
*This is the highlight of the article:
(This is the highlight of the article: New Clairol Nice'n Easy Care Color formula gives 100% gray coverage and has conditioners built into every step, so your hair maintains its soft, silky, healthy-looking feel every step of the way. It also contains the secret weapon - innovative hair dye molecule, ME+. This super hero or revolutionary molecule really is a revolution! For the first time ever in a home hair color product, ME+ reduces the risk of an allergic reaction in people without existing allergies.* How does it work? Read more!
Why do we have hair color allergies?
When something fits within the T-cell’s receptors, the T-cell thinks it's dangerous and activates an immune response. Unfortunately, sometimes the T-cell can be wrong and the substance might be not a threat. This is what happens with allergies. Common food allergies and allergies against hair color are caused like this. In the case of hair color, two ingredients are responsible for triggering the T-cell response: p-Phenylenediamine (pPD) and p-Toluenediamine (pTD). pPD and pTD are commonly used in hair dyes because they are great for color brilliance. We didn't want to lose that rich color, but because the molecules sometimes were misunderstood by the T-Cells, we had to do something.
How to outsmart the T-cells?
The answer might sound simple - just modify the outside of molecule and change its overall shape, but it's the result of more than 20 years of research and hard work. Using the latest techniques in color technology,
Nice' n Easy scientists have altered the molecular structure of traditional dye molecule (pTD, pPD) by adding a "hero's cape", so that it does not easily fit with the body's T-cell receptors and is less likely to induce an allergic reaction. We called the modified version “ME+”.
Why is the ME+ molecule revolutionary?
ME+ is the key to an Allergy Gentle* formula that still gives 100% gray coverage, rich blend of tones and highlights. It provides brilliant full color performance and a 60x less chance of developing an allergy to those who do not already have a dye allergy to pTD or pPD.
ME+ is the first and unique primary intermediate in the permanent hair color category to strike the balance between reduced risk of developing a new allergy* and permanent color performance. These efforts resulted in many peer-reviewed publications in well-known scientific journals including the Journal of Investigative Dermatology, the British Journal of Dermatology and Regulatory Toxicology and Pharmacology.
* ME+ is a revolutionary hair dye molecule that better protects people without hair dye allergy by reducing the chance of developing one. If you have a known hair dye allergy, do not use this product unless approved by your dermatologist. Note that in some cases, severe reactions may still occur.
What are the risks? Can anyone use it?
If you already have an allergy, you should not use this product unless approved by a dermatologist. If you have experienced an allergic reaction to any hair color ingredient, such as pTD or pPD, you should not color the hair as they cannot exclude being allergic to ME+. In some cases, severe reactions may occur. Remember – prevention is the best protection so always perform an Allergy Alert Test 48h before each application as hair dye allergy can develop at any time.
Clairol Nice’n Easy Care Color with revolutionary ME+ is available in 47 natural-looking shades, so you will find one that fits you perfectly. It's time for you to join the hair color revolution! ) )) STOP...copying article.
YOU CAN TRY IT FOR YOURSELF IF YOU ARE INTERESTED AND HAVE ALLERGIES TO PPD /AND/OR PTD.
OK, I AM NOT RECOMMENDING THIS new PRODUCT OR SELLING IT, OR GETTING PAID TO DO EITHER.
I MUST just POST NEW INFORMATION AND TECHNOLOGY AS I SAID I WOULD.
SO FOR NOW - I DO AS I SAID I WOULD - "TOO LEGIT TO QUIT". as you know, AHa, HeHeeee.
-------------------more new information and technology_______________
BUT HOLD ON TO YOUR HATS, THERE are some other new hair color technologies comming. NEW STUFF COMMING THAT WILL EXPAND YOUR IMAGINATION..and really blow your mind. One I happen to personally know one very dedicated, innovative doctor who invented something new. I have known her for about 6 years now. She is getting a better patent on her new invention right now..
Someone else has created base hair color from some yucky stuff...like E-Coli. These ingredients will be available soon to manufacturers to create "natural" hair color products with....
Also there are other things comming too, just - not on this website yet.
The Golden Age of Genetics and Green Chemistry is Here .
(Note: ORGANIC CHEMISTRY is NOT TO BE CONFUSED with the "word" Organic - as in Organic Food and should not be used as such, if it is - it demonstrates by the user, a unfair trick or Gimmik - which is employed in Greenwashing). So be aware and beware the use of those two words.
"Going more natural has been here a long time and is here to stay - so start doing your homework or just try a few products and see what resonates". (Vee).
MASTEY Professional Salon hair color is one of the better, more luxurious, hair color lines and has always been:
PPD Free and Ammonia Free, Resorcinol and Paraben Free, etc. and contains alot of Grape Seed Extract. It is quite good and the folks are very nice. Henry Mastey created the formula - well over 16 years ago. Mastey contains many organic ingredients and delivers Great results. I recommend this product. The color line has everything you would want as a Professional. Prices are good, very reasonable.
A Very - Old Company is called :"All Nutrient" with tons of organic ingredients, low ammonia, etc. The Colors are very powerfull and strong. I do not currently use this brand but I have in the distant -long ago past and I have it, if anyone particularly asks for it (as is my practice for anything). It works Extremely well. They label it: Natural Hair Color. The styling product line is very professional too. The prices are very good, very reasonable. Shelf life is long.
Actually, there are - many PPD Free, ammonia free, alcohol free, resorcinol free, paraben free brands on the market. A lot of very innovative products that have been around for a long, long time.
** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** 5,4,3,2,1
E-Bay has: Lots of Ammonia Free, PPD Free, Peroxide Free, No Alcohol, No Resorcinol, No Parabens, no Mineral Oil, etc. Hair color as well as many of the "FREE OF" BRANDS.
I also recommend: I.C.O.N. PPD Free, Ammonia Free HAIR COLOR. Also sold on Ebay and Amazon.
Look on Ebay and Amazon for the best prices, the best deals and great Professional Hair Color (Sold to Professionals). I can tell you there are many, many, many PPD, Ammonia, Alcohol, paraben, resorcinol Free hair colors. Even the Brand: "AFREE" is sold on Ebay.
On 8/1/17 Vee created the term *L.C.H. (Low Chemical Hair Color). This is a brand new Category of Hair color. Additionally, Z.M.M.C. (Copyright@7/1/17), All rights reserved. The reason for this is to create more clarity and a more refined definition, due to the misuse of these terms below.
Vee originally created the terms: ORGANIC HAIR COLORING and Holistic Hair Coloring as well as Holistic Aesthetician and Organic and Holistic Hair color and Esthetician Services, whereas before there were no such categories, practices or designation(s). More recently, Vee created the category and words Just Better for you Haircolor and Better4U Haircolor (Just Better4U Haircolor).

Good News and Old News.
NEW HAIR COLOR BRANDS ON THE SCENE TODAY:
Here are 2 new - hair color brands, which just happen to have originated in the San Francisco Bay Area also.
Let's have a contest of who is the most and clean product of our - two new local hair color companies. None of the two are eligible to be listed as an "Organic" Brand, even though one of these companies list themselves on the internet everywhere as being Organic Hair Color. But this is not true.
-----------------------------------------Something new-? ? ------------------------------
* ----HAIRPRINT- Sounds nice doesn't it. (It is said to be Created by a local San Francisco Bay Area industrial chemist). Not even advertised as a Natural Hair color, but in this one particular case it really could qualify to be labeled as such. Bravo for Hairprint.
NEW HAIR COLOR - Number One:
There is a new natural hair color - called Hairprint, which appears to be made of well known natural vegetable dyes and possible natural occurring metalics, but, I will reserve my final observation - until I've actually tried it, but I will say, it sounds much better for you and the environment, except the strange self heating up bit, mummn. Heating up by itself usually means a chemical reaction, right. But, only one way to find out, order it and test it. But the Ingredients found in it sound good and much better for you and the environment. Like most claiming to be natural, the ingredients list shown on the website under Ingredients, are very different than the ones, you are required to give to Professionals, due to MSDS Safety Rules. But this list, did not have alot of really bad chemicals in it. It was actually quite clean.
The "Cons", Number One: Ferrous Gluconate (Iron) F.G. or F.S. can be very damaging to the hair, it is a well known fact.
Number two: It is not a permanent fix. My point here is that they say in their Advertising : That it "Restores" the eumelanin in the hair (i.e.: the browns and darker browns found in the hair shaft), which if you were to really RESTORE OR HEAL the old color molecules in your grayed hair then that would be a permanent fix and you would not require more and more applications upon your hair growing each day - (but this is not the case with Hairprint), as it tells you that you should keep applying it to (*RESTORE) *( there is that word again) the dark hair you had had before in your younger days. You can join their club to get is sent to you regularly each month. So this to me is just a bit of a play on words - in advertising - which other companies have done much, much worse. To Restore the eumelanin (brown colors) in your hair is simply a PLAY ON WORDS. We are really applying color to gray hair. Final ingredients list shows it contains a few well known brown plant - hair dyes with the addition of iron. (The iron and herbs and vegetable dye is actually an old technique) Yes, I have seen it done before in many older cosmetic formulas and folky style cosmetics, hair colorants, makeup and other applications. It is an obvious way to make some brown to black dyes (Minus the self-heating bit).
I do see several ingredients found in creating metalic salts, but, I will have to get back to you on that - to be sure. Now, to be fair, metalic salts can be derived from natural sources and some consider them to be natural ingredient hair colorants.
Now, this product gradually, adds in darker coloring- WHICH TO ME ONLY MEANS IT IS PROGRESSIVE and you can't do it all in one day. It takes a few applications to get the brown color as deep or dark as you want it to be to match up with the remaining brown you have or to get enough dye to really cover the gray good. Like potatoe skins or any vegetable dye - it ususally takes a few applications and in between shampoos, some comes out again, so you must reapply. No biggie, this sounds reasonable.
All in all - it sounds like people like it alot. It has lots of good reviews that sound real. It seems alot of people like it - not just the people who are trying to sell it. In the ingredients I saw. No actual fake chemical hair dyes in it.
"Pros" The ingredients list in Hairprint shows mainly good, natural ingredients.
HAIRPRINT hair color restorer, Sounds Very Interesting and it has a lot of good reviews. "Worth giving it a look".
The second newer brand to come out- again, in San Francisco.
Number Two of the newer - so called "innovative" but Not True, hair colors on the scene.
The Not-Organic, Madison Reed HAIRCOLOR, which is actually (NOT an ORGANIC Hair color Brand in any way, shape or form, BUT they ADVERTISE as being one) everywhere on the internet. They have adds on T.V. and originated in San Francisco, California also. *Note: FYI, Just about every hair color is made in Italy - which M-R, makes a big deal over. Reason: simply there are many, many hair color factories in Italy. There are tons of brands just like this and their self described "Innovation" is ACTUALLY NOT NEW. So when you see them advertising their brand as Organic and a new innovation.
Don't beleive it: OK, Proof of This is:
Just, Check how long Mastey - PPD, Ammonia Free-Organic hair color - has been around for.
**Read MORE ON Madison Reed at the bottom.
**THE RESULTS ARE IN:
So out of the two listed above as of 9/2017. HAIRPRINT wins the NEW - Clean HAIR COLOR Contest - Hands Down....and HANDS ABOVE Madison Reed. **THERE actually IS NO CONTEST HERE. Hairprint - looks cleaner, more interesting and more of a new revelation to the general public as a whole.
** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** ** 5,4,3,2,1
NEWS NEWS NEWS NEW COMPANY *** GOOD COMPANY, GREAT PRODUCT
Newer Brands, and better Ingredients STILL EVEN YET.... Yes even better:
THERE IS Another Brand, A BRAND NEW HAIR COLOR COMPANY I REALLY LIKE:
New as of 6 Months ago. This New 6 month old COMPANY has Zero MAN MADE Chemicals in it and is made of 100% Natural, MINIMALLY Processed Ingredients - this BRAND I will speak about on my HAIR COLOR Company RECOMMENDATIONS PAGE.
NEXT TAB OVER. Comming soon.
Also comming soon to the Industry: Not available yet:
COMMING SOON on the other side: While I am a formulator I stay ahead of the game. The latest natural hair color ingredient product to come around is beleive it or not: Colors derived from E Coli.
Colors from E coli. Sounds horrible, but science found a way to make it and they are calling it natural. Actually it is.
Places to find: Organic, Natural, Ppd free (Free brands), Less Chemical, Low Chemical,
Zero Man Made Chemical:
Amazon has some Ammonia, PPD Free, etc with beneficial results. - the names are I.C.O.N. and "Chi". Mastey*
Places to buy - Storefronts
Cosmoprof and Ulta Beauty carry "Chi" which is PPD, Ammonia Free - and has been around for over 4 plus years now.
Many Beauty Salon Supply Store Chain have carried their own PPD Free, Silicone, Ammonia Free, Gluten Free, Resorcinol free, (resorcinol substitute in same family as resorcinol), Paraben Free Brands for about 5 years and often sell to the General Public as well as Pros. Plus there are 2 other kinds of hair color there too that fall under this category.
Sometimes while shopping, I hear people say: Oh, I buy CHEMCIAL FREE or ALL NATURAL haircolor. But they are not reading the ingredients label. It amazes me. How can you make a statement like that and beleive it, just because YOU HEARD it on a Television Commercial or on the INTERNET ABOUT A CERTAIN PRODUCT.
All these hair color brands I have listed here are also Paraben and Gluten Free as well as PPD, Ammonia Free, Maybe Chi Brand could possibly still have parabens but, of this I am not sure. I know of 14 more brands, just off the top of my head today, without even looking.
One Sold to Professionals Only - Line is: Mastey deParis Haircolor. And their Mastey Teinture and others.
I used his formula about - 15 years ago. Personally, I found owner (Henry) to be forthright, very professional, generous and creative. There has been alot said about the formula he made, but I see alot of companies have Copy Cated it. I've been doing this work for over 30 years. Mr. Mastey was the first to come out with this type of PPD Free product - that I knew of - In 2004 when there was nothing like this formula available.
Notes: I started in 1994 looking for things on the market that were low in toxins and I posted THESE TOXINS on the internet, each one, what it does and is used for and its toxicity levels.
Before that time I created many hair and skin products and cosmetics, going back to the age of 13, then at 17- years old, I created my own, first, chemcial free blonding formula. Actually I am a excellent innovative formulator, but - not really a sales person - not that I hate sales people, but just have no real experience in that line. Hopefully I will rectify this problem one day soon. I eventually tired of making everything myself - so I took some of my formulas to a lab and had it made for me, it was very, very expensive, but these formulas I can not live without. After decades of making it myself, I feel I can start to sell some of these products to the general public. I will soon post some of my products and where it is going to be sold. If you are interested - and actually, I found alot of you are, due to he surge in popularity my organic hair coloring websites received and all the companies that copied the name and idea, I know I had hit a spot in some like minded consumers and individuals. So stay posted.
Love to you all - OmShanti, Blessed Be, Namaste, Your friend V.
Note and F.Y.I.
There are also 18 other brands, 5 sold to Professionals only. There are soo many brands that fit this Lower Chemical category and Low Chemical Category, which also were specifically made to omit : Ammonia, PPD, Resorcinol, other toxic chemicals and ingredients and Gluten. AGAIN- - BECAUSE THE FORMULA HAS BEEN OUT FOR, AS I SAID for OVER 16 years. Over 13 years ago I had to have it made specifically for me at two different facilities and there were a few places that had a similiar formula. I ASKED THEM AND THEY SAID YES - THEY ALREADY HAD IT IN THE VAULT, another place had a similiar type . OF COURSE SOME PLACES DID NOT HAVE IT BECAUSE IT WAS KINDA NEW BACK THEN AND I HAD TO GO AROUND AND ASK AROUND A LOT. I keep very good records.
I see there are alot of products being made to "Look" like they are Natural or Organic. Example: On Google, type in Natural hair color and a company by the name of Madison Reed comes up, at the very top of the list. Again look up Organic hair color and it comes up again. But wait a minute, this product is not in any way natural and is certainly not in any way organic. Like many it is a fake advertising tactic and they usually pay to get to the top of the List on the Search Engines. They have lots of money, just look at the prices they charge and they are not even a Professionals Only Haircolor.
By the way a representative called me about two years ago from this company and actually misrepresented herself. She was very agressive, very pushy, not allowing me to ask her what exactly she wanted, but she at first acted like she wanted to make an appointment and was just calling to find out more about this new concept I had before she came in to see me. She was very pushy, after I explained I make my own natural hair color. She kept insisting then that I tell her the name of one of the HAIRCOLOR products that I had used in the past, as my website stated that I use different brands for different needs, - instead of doing the research herself, buying and testing out all new natural and organic hair color products. She said, just tell me one hair color name you use. I finally told her : Well there is a hair color by the name of "Afree by Dikson". She then said startled: Oh, you mean PPD Free is Organic ?. She SEEMED VERY, VERY, very EXCITED ABOUT THIS -
I said: "No, no it is not organic - It's - Just "Better For You".
Now I never said it was organic. If she bothered to read my old website, that she saw and got my phone number from, it said that : I use lots of different brands, I mainly use 100% organic haircolor since I am an herbalist. I also use Low Chemical Hair Color and No chemical hair color and I created different methods and techniques. Not your typical - Hair Colorist.
I created the idea, words and model of "Organic Hair Coloring Salon" and I can prove it. EVERYONE KNOWS THIS. That is why she, (the Madison Reed Rep.) called me - so she could grill me and then steal As much Information as She Could for the Madison Reed brand.
It was obvious she just rushed thru the internet trying to glean any information without fully reading my website and without doing any real work herself - and she was very Rude to boot. She NEVER IDENTIFIED HERSELF AS BEING FROM A COMPANY, or BEING A PROFESSIONAL, SPY, FISHER, POSER, SNEAK, HUSTLER and was very vague and lied about why she was asking the questions. Here I thought she was a POOR LADY NEEDING HELP THAT LIVED FAR AWAY AND COULD NOT COME IN TO SEE ME, the way she ragged on and pushed, pinned for a name of a hair color brand and was so so insistent - like her life depended on it. After I gave her the name "Afree" her questions became more and more about Products and Procedures - and She did not say that she was associated with Madison Reed Co- EVER or any company name. by that matter. But she was..Read more.. I will post the entire content of that phone conversation soon.
Because of that type of behavior, I would never buy anything from them - besides their products are way too over priced, along with their messed up mentality of blatantly, stealing other's ideas and hard work. They also obviously "borrowed" (to put it nicely), E Salon's ideas and website format and other Salon Business Models, Details and Ideas, Ingredients and substitution of Ingredients. Also, my idea of putting a a woman in a Yoga pose (to promote healing and wellness- as this is my first vocation and what I do) on the website, copying all my words in their Expensive T.V. adds . You should have heard her (the deceitful M-R Representative I mean), she tried to squeeze out, get - use and steal every detail - as she asked me question after question, how much I charge, where am I located and when I said, well where are YOU located, She said, oh, you must go to the homes of people to do their hair - I just said ah, oh, yes I can because I am a licensed nursing professional first off. At that point it was dawning on me she was not calling to make an appointment afterall, she had just acted like she was a prospective client so as to get information-then she got rude and abruptly hung up.
Now, I must say, I am insulted. Instead of M-R doing their OWN CREATIVE work, developing their own ideas and their own original ideation and business model. After I saw all the things she asked me about SPECIFICALLY - down to EVERY small DETAIL - (that was later used in their advertising), but with the slight difference being, that M-R Claimed that - they had created this idea and New Innovation. That is a lie.
There is nothing innovative or original about the Madison Reed Company. Honestly, the nerve. Additionally, Why would you even mention that the M-R's (owner) named the company after her daughter - Unless it is - AH, Maybe TO GET THE CONSUMER TO SYMPATHIZE AND CONNECT WITH THEM ON AN EMOTIONAL LEVEL, (an ungracefull advertising tactic)? But then, I recalled another company who named their company after the owner's daughter too, BUT, they did it FIRST, Carol's Daughter is their name and Carol's Daugher I would believe the pure intent.
Now, again not surprised, Really, I SHOULD HAVE KNOWN BETTER, here it is again. M-R does it again FOLKS - YES ANOTHER idea M-R Ripps Off without a "MAY I" , "IF YOU PLEASE" or a BY YOUR LEAVE" .
Now Carol's Daughter - really create their own beautiful products just like I have hand crafted mine for over 30 years. Well, Let's see Who ELSE did M-R copy cat and ah, "Borrow" from? Can you think of anyone else or anything else that M-R has copied or "Borrowed" from? Besides: Afree, Mastey, Carol's Daughter, E Salon, Yoga Trend photos,- that I used first, The name: Organic Hair Color and idea and concept and model of Organichaircoloringsalon.Net. Wow, Who is next? My advice to you all is:
Just don't invent anything because M-R will inevitabley TRY TO STEAL IT without a may I, if you please or thank you.
Well as all higher consciousness people know, STEALING from - other people can create problems. Now Madison Reed WILL BE FOREVER be IDENTIFIED AS HAVING STOLEN OTHERS IDEAS, INNOVATION, CREATIVITY AND HARD WORK, BECAUSE THEY did exactly that. That is just WHAT THEY DO.. WITH THEIR KIND OF BEHAVIOR AND MENTALITY AND MORALS AS WELL AS BEING MONEY GRUBBING AND PLAYING INTO THE FEARS of the Public. They are also located in San Francisco, that is why they wanted to know where I am located in San Francisco. They should have at least made an appointment, but just to call and try to squeeze out information to Steal and then use immediately, is way beyond agressive, is just too much, What incredible gall, what nerve.
We are working at getting the hair color laws to change, so they must list and show ALL of the ingredients to the Consumer, not just the ones that SOUND GOOD for advertising purposes. The industry is slowly changing, but it takes time. A professional is provided the full list of ingredients, nore than any consumer would be able to obtain. And the ingredients Lists are different, most of the time vastly different. From the Consumers List and the Salonists List of Ingredients.
Now, "AFREE" by Dikson is mainly sold to professionals - but I see you can actually buy it online if you are not a professional. Afree is PPD and Ammonia Free and contains some organic ingredients. It is not bad, I must say Afree comes in a very large amount tube. So the pricing is considered in with the size too. Afree is a bit expensive for a Professional Salon product, BUT Afree is - FAR, FAR LESS EXPENSIVE THAN Madison Reed (extremely overpriced into the realm of super greed). In addition, not all of the ingredients are listed on Madison Reed's hair color. Only the ingredients that sound good. And it is odd they listed their color exactly the way I listed mine by the color of the herbs making different ingredients for different ingredients needed to obtain those colors. I can tell you that in their case, it is not true. Madison Reed's hair colors are CHEMICAL BASED HAIR COLORS and their is no need for them to list or not list the ingredients in that way. And just why are they listing their hair color as Organic. It is all over the internet, in email boxes being listed under the word ORGANIC. WHICH IS N O T TRUE. WTF?. Maybe they should label it Low Chemical, but - actually we don't REALLY know how much chemicals or PTD is in their hair color. Is it as low as Naturecolor? Is it less than one sixteenth of one percent of PTD? So then, they may not even be Low Chemical either. They should list all their ingredients like the other - truly Natural Brands do and their percentages of chemicals, then we can tell something. Really, if you think on it, just saying you have a substitute for PPD does not tell us how much of it or the other chemicals are in the product. It could be over the recommended limit for PTD, there are also ways to tell. If it is weaker than regular hair color, it will have lower chemicals.
PLEASE (SEE THE ORGANIC LABELING DEFINITIONS - PAGE).
THE OLD RULE OF paying more - higher prices for Better Quality, does not always apply. Just look on Amazon. Even their organic products will be good and have you gone into a Whole Foods Store lately? I hear, the prices have gone substantially DOWN.
Most sold to professionals haircolors are sold for less money to the Salon. Example, alot of old fashioned brands starting at $3.99 a bottle, (have also made the switch to low ammonia) formula changed years ago so it does not sting the eyes.
Some Distributors have had access to PPD Free, Ammonia Free hair color lines for over 10 years and some will sell directly to the public as well as professionals.
Ammonia Free Color Lines sold at Cosmoproff are $7.00 for excellent coloring products, sometimes $8.00 for a large tube of Pravana ammonia free haircolor. Just about every color supply store sells Ammonia Free, PPD Free hair color.
Chi - which delivers the color results in a silky, shinny, well conditioned and very nice indeed result. It is ammonia and PPD Free.
Ammonia Free and Paraben Free are the two - main ingredients you need to look for, unless you have a problem with PPD. Of course if you can eliminate other toxic chemicals, the more the better.
More on Good, Natural, Home Kits (DIY at Home Hair Color Kits).
DIY: There are tons of Ammonia Free hair color lines, even in the local Drug Store for over 8 plus years, even at the local Dollar stores and even your local Bargain Grocery Markets. The old BRAND Naturecolor was always Ammonia Free - etc and is pretty Luxurious and Lush, All of their colors contain one 16th of ONE percent of PPD (or Less than 1/16th of ONE PERCENT). So they would be considered to be Low Chemical hair color and Natural due to the large amount of Natural Ingredients - and all different natural ingredients in each different color as well as their innovative herbal extraction technique used. Naturecolor has been around for Ever. Frankly I love most of the colors and flexibility of use. I used them decades ago and I am sure they are still of superior quality.
I must say, I Love Mastey Teinture - PPD Free, Ammonia Free, Resorcinol Free, Paraben Free, Natural Hair Color. Even though this company is quite old - the Pure and Natural Ingredients deliver supreme results. You need a skilled Stylist to get the best out of this product, some one who has used it for many years and is well educationed and experienced with it, but when you do find someone who has worked with it for many years, you will have a Crush on Professor Mastey too.
