I did not create Organic Hair Coloring Salon to be a gimmik or Craze or fashion. It was created for very specific reasons, Health and Eco- Consciousness. Non toxic environment, Clean air for the client and the Colorist. And additionally, a platform for my Holistic Modalities. For me, it was a no brainer. For the copy cat artists, unfortunately, it may be a gimmiky way just to get your money (and an excuse to charge extremely high prices) focusing on negatives and fear. I created the very first website on earth for organic and holistic hair and skin. I created the idea of using Organic, holistic and alternative products and procedures and ideas into the salon.
If you don't have such sensitivities, maladies or injuries, don't worry so much and don't just throw your money away. Not respecting money can also be an unhealthy, negative act (Mind, Body, Spirit) also includes respecting and taking care of one's provisions in life, valuing your money is also a form of creating WELLNESS in life).
Do what makes you comfortable and don't give into big business scare tactics or fake advertising schemes.
This is the very FIRST ORGANIC HAIRCOLOR WEBSITE ever created on the internet and the first of it's kind. There was only one that was similiar, 25 years ago, (*non toxic salon by Cherrie) K. which went out of business and did not have the word organic or holistic in it in any place. The woman who owned it asked me if I wanted to take over her business, but alas, the products she had were / are out dated. But I created the very first Idea of Organic hair color and Organic Hair coloring salon model and the idea and words of Organic and Holistic Aesthetician, holistic skin spa.. Over 20 years ago when I was in a Well known, Holistic Healing College. At that time, I told the owner of the school my idea, she said, come back when you finish Cosmetology school.
I work through doctor or medical referral.For over 30 YEARS I have created hundreds of formulas that are truly organic and truly natural and I use truly alternative and holistic methods. Now I am also selling my products. A link will be forthcomming. I became almost afraid to list any more of my original ideas due to the constant theiving and stealing of ideas. Finally, I found a way to guard my proprietary creations. Even though, I always had a Copyright listed on every page.
As a matter of fact. The only Hair color at that time that had the word Organic on it was Herbatint. BUT, I called them to ask them what was organic in their haircolor as I saw nothing on the ingredient label that indicated any such ingredient. The nice, For Proffessionals only Representative, who is French, Marie, said: What does Organic mean? I said, oh, it is a way of farming, etc. (and it is really a way of thinking, creating, eating, living, that eliminates toxic ingredients that are harmfull to humans, the planet and all life). I told her the word is on your advertisement. She did not even know that. She asked me where I saw it, I had to tell her and she said she would have to call their main office to ask about that question. It was a bit surprising. I think it was just a mistake as from that point on I NEVER SAW IT AGAIN ON THEIR ADVERTISEMENTS.
Now, let me explain again:
ALTHOUGH my website has changed many times over the 20 years, I always used the words, Organic and Holistic and other words and ideas, I will not mention now, along with a copyright at the bottom or top always.
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 and it is not simple henna that I used. I also use other products that fit specific needs, but they are also clean and free of man made chemcials or are low chemical hair colors for people that want traditional chemical hairdye that emerged in the last century - originating in 1800's (but are updated versions of the same) oxidative dyes.
I create my own haircolor, I have since I was a teenager. As I explained to many haircolor reps who called me asking for ingredients in my haircolor, I said, the ingredients are different from color to color, you see, because it takes different herbal concentrates to make different colors, AND A FEW OTHER THINGS, I will not get into now. In addition my herbs are Organically farmed, which is a first.
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. They all have different needs.
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 I 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 San Francisco, California, Peninsula and have used many products. 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 afterwards I got my Cosmetology license - So, 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 through the wellness and medical communities telling my students and contemporaries about my novel idea and services and products.
I ended up having to make my own haircoloring products again, because I could not find what I needed in the professional salon industry 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 skin care and massage courses and other courses in his school - he said it 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 the organic haircolor and organic products I made in the hair industry for my clients with special medical issues. In the beginning, I tried and used haircolor on the professional market and made my own herbal hair colors and products for special clients. My skill increased and increased and I learned much. I will now be selling my new lines of hair color. I had my products reproduced in a few labs over 15 years ago, but the world was not ready yet. I think the time is here. It is gratifying to see how well received my ideas were, but the constant stealing of my ideas and hard work, made is so I can not show my other new ideas and products.
This website will show a list of just some of the new products on the market and other brands of old haircoloring products I used long ago in the past and my findings on them. Some of these old haircolor companies 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.
No more information will be given out. This is not what I intended at all when I started the Organic Hair color Salon Ideation. By the way, years ago, The haircolor company by the name of: Organic Color Systems called me too to grill me and to ask me if they could use the name Organic Color on their company, I said yes.
Before then many companies called me to ask if they could use the words Organic Hair Color or Holistic Esthetician and Organic Esthetician. One was Green Venus in Australia, She liked my name "Green Venus Organic Hair and Skin Spa" and she had the decency to be honest, I told her go ahead and use the name since you are in Australia. Another caller was was Organic Salon Systems. They were forthright and told me who they were and outright what they wanted to do. Instead of being sneaky - acting like a real person needing assistance. Like a recent very sneaky, company by the initials M-R did. I will post the print out of that phone call. A lady in the USA called me with the words in her new company of Organic and Holistic, she asked me if it was ok to use those words, I said yes. I love her products too, she then was attached to another hair color line, who just used those words too, being in associate of hers. They are called: Organic Color Systems, which I tried their stuff years later and did not like it. Also they got a bad rep in the USA and alot of Salons stopped using their products. I called them and discussed the use of the words and they were very snippy saying well did you get a Copyright on the name. Since then, I have taken steps to do that and have gone further beyond that to assure protection of my product ideas, promotion ideas and intellectual property, etc.
This site's 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 opinions of others too - who have tried any hair color product. All for our planet's sake and for goodness sake.
I will very soon be selling my wonderfully healthy products on line.
Blessings to all,
Vee's Mission has always been: Promoting Health & Wellness Consciousness into the Salon.
