About Me

THIS WAS THE VERY FIRST ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR WEBSITE.  I created the very first Ideation of Organic hair color and Organic Hair coloring salon and the idea and words of Organic and Holistic Aesthetician.  Over 20 years ago when I was in a Holistic Healing College, I told the owner of the school my idea, she said, come back when you finish Cosmetology school, as I want you to work in my Day Spa.

As a matter of fact.  The only Hair color at that time that had theword Organic on it was Herbatint.  I called them to ask them what was organic in their haircolor.  The nice representative who is french, Marie said: What does Organic mean?   I said, oh, it is a way of farming, blah, etc, etc.

Now, let me explain again:
ALTHOUGH my website has changed many times over the 20 years,

At that time, the only way I could think of the explain what I do  -
and to explain the type of product and work I do was for me to
use the
word "Organic".   What I wanted to convey was, I use the CLEANEST HAIRCOLOR I can find or create.  Meaning free of toxic chemicals such as,  Ammonia, PPD, Resorcinol, Mea's, Parabens, Glutens, Peroxide, Metalics, Progressive Dyes, etc, toxic chemicals of all kinds and other toxic preservatives.   Look on the ingredients list of your favorite hairdye, MAKE SURE IT IS THE COMPLETE LIST- As the trend now is for tricky companies trying to look green, to list only SOME of the ingredients they use.   Or to highlight the chemicals they do not use.

I create my own haircolor, I have for over 40 years.  In addition my herbs are Organically farmed, which is number one.  

Alternately, I also use all of the new products on the market that fit my certain criteria.  I test them one by one.  Being a health care professional first I keep very informed and up to date on new and improved formulas.  

Occassionally, I may need something I can not make or find. Many of my clients have health challenges.  So I end up making products for them, because they would not be able to have any product or cosmetic otherwise.

I have been making and using organic hair color for over 40 years before I was a teenager.  I started lightening my hair at age 13 as well as making most of my own clothing, again, because I could not find what I wanted.

If you know me, you know I will report only the facts, no hype.  I will not try to sell you any products.

 Being a health care professional first, I ended up working on people with chronic illnesses and environmental illnesses often they were  undergoing healing treatments. I still work in the medical field teaching classes and courses, many of my courses are listed in in - house hospital publications and medical C.E. credit school as well as outpatient wellness centers, I have been teaching Alternative Medicine for well over 17 years. 

I will now take you back in time. My first year in Cosmetology School, I became ill due to the chemicals used.  I could not beleive no one else was not also becomming ill from the fumes used, and constantly opened the window, until the other students complained, it was too cold.  That was my second awakening into realizing I was highly sensitized to chemicals.

I am a Licensed Cosmetologist in the West San Francisco, California, Peninsula and have used many products.  Now not just any products, I look for certain categories and often containing the lowest man made chemical content I can find.  I started out making my own herbal products for myself, then after I got my Cosmetology license I just put two and two together; my medical background, then my holistic licensing and my ample alternative healing background of 25 years and continued to work my way thru the wellness and medical communities.

 I ended up having to make my own haircoloring products again, because I could not find what I needed on the market.  It was a total accident that I became a Cosmetologist too, I only intended to become an Esthetician but was talked into getting my full license, because the owner of the Cosmetology school wanted me to teach in his school and said, that was the only way I could teach in that field - was to get a full Cosmetology Degree instead of just a Esthetician license.  I only intended to make and sell facial products, later I realized I could also use and eventually the organic haircolor I make.

This website will show a  list of just some of the new products on the market and my old haircoloring products I used  long ago, way in the past and my findings on them, some came out with new versions, which I also tried and will report on the colors I tried.

 I care greatly for our beautiful planet, and use the cleanest hair color products and cosmetics possible.  

I love it that there are so many new products being created since an inspired herbalist started the organic haircolor craze on this very domain name, before I had organic haircoloring and gave it up and since then someone else took it over to sell products on.

  I have had many, many hair color manufacturers, even from big hair color companies call me to ask about what is in the hair color I make and use. Most of these companies were not honest or forthomming in their motives and schemes.  They would call and call, wast My time, to grill me about ingredients.  The latest one was Madison Reed, who was actually the most pushy and deceptive, posing like a poor lady needing help. When I explained I use many haircolor brands, the rep said, well then, just tell me one name of a product you use.  Feeling sorry for her, I did, I said, Afree,  she said where do you get it.  She acted like she was a poor person really needing help.  I said where I got it and who was the manufacturer, I explained it is PPD Free, she then said, "Oh you mean PPD Free haircolor IS Organic Hair color? I said ah, no, I did not say That, I said "It is just better for you".  I added - as it says on my website, I use different brands for different purposes, well she got soo excited.   It was obvious at that point that she was lying and was a haircolor manufacturing company spy.  Sure enough, soon a nice lady came once for a "haircolor" and grilled me the whole time.  She told me she knew some Angel investors and she told me about Madison Reed, but stopped herself.  She was an artist.  She only came once to try to get information.  After this last episode, a new system was instituted.  

No more information will be given out.  This is not what I intended at all when I started the Organic Hair color craze.   By the way, years ago, Organic Color Systems called me too to grill me and to see if they could use the name Organic Color on their company, I said yes.

This site' purpose now is to provide knowledge on organic or low chemical hair coloring and reporting information, ingredients, performance, rating and my opinion.  I list the opionons of others too who have tried any hair color product.  This if for our planet's sake and for goodness sake. 

I will very soon be selling my wonderfull products on line.

Blessings to all,
