Naturally Better Colour
‘When can I colour my hair and which colour is safe’ is a question we hear a lot in our salons.
We set out to find the most effective, kindest and safest hair colour available for new hair growth following treatment or an episode of alopecia. After much research and many trials on our own hair we found Organic Colour Systems. We were so impressed we went one step further and decided to offer this personal colouring service to our clients in our own private fitting rooms.
Organic Colour Systems is a range of permanent and semi-permanent colours made from the maximum amount of certified organic ingredients and the minimum amount of chemicals.
OCS is gentle but effective and easily colours even resistant grey hair. Most hair colour products use harsh chemicals like ammonia that damage hair in the colouring process, stripping hair’s natural health and shine. By using fewer chemicals and no ammonia, Organic Colour Systems maintains hair’s essential protein and moisture balance.
How Does it Work?
Created by London hairdressers/ colourists, Stephen Landreth and Stuart Taylor, as a solution to Landreth’s allergy to hair colour, the product took four years to develop. It uses natural alkaline oil based shampoos and recontructors to soften the hair before colouring. It then uses heat rather than ammonia to gently open up the outer layer (cuticle) so colour is easily absorbed.
Activator (also called developer or peroxide) is necessary to lift the colour in order to achieve the desired shade of colour. The activator in OCS, unlike most activators contains no formaldehyde and is pharmaceutical grade peroxide. It also contains organic roman chamomile to soothe and protect the scalp.
Once colour is rinsed off, OCS nourishing conditioners close the cuticle completely, restoring hair to its natural pH value. That means colour stays locked in and hair looks smooth and shiny and has lost less moisture than regular chemical colours.
Even damaged hair can safely be coloured and styled with Organic Colour Systems. Their nourishing and strengthening formulations work together across all ranges to repair damaged hair in a short time.
Semi Permanent Colours
No Limits is the Semi Permanent Colour we recommend for use directly after treatment or on any new hair growth in clients with alopecia or other sensitivities. It has no ammonia, peroxide or nasty chemicals. Direct dyes are used rather than oxidative pigments, making them ideal for clients who are sensitive to PPD or PTD. Each colour will last between 6 and 12 washes.
However, it may not give 100% coverage in grey but we will do our best to advice you on your best options within this ultra sensitive range. Each No Limits colour comes in a 150ml airless pump, which provides consistent doses and is extremely easy to use at home or we can do it in the Salon if you wish.
Naturally Better Care
Organic Colour Systems care range and colour range are designed to work together. Shampoos and conditioners are packed with natural moisturisers and proteins that nourish, protect and strengthen your OCS coloured hair so it looks healthier than ever.
The care range is designed to add protein and moisture to the hair. A stretch test of your hair reveals what your hair is lacking in and we will prescribe accordingly. OCS Shampoo and Conditioners also contain natural UV light filters to protect hair and keep colour longer-lasting.
