At Denver’s highest rated 5-star organic hair salon and beauty shop we are the only salon team in Colorado to offer Organic Colour Systems! OCS is the only professional color line in the world that is 100% ammonia free.
The Natural Alternative
Most hair colour products use harsh chemicals like ammonia that damage hair in the colouring process, stripping hair’s natural health and shine.
Organic Colour Systems is different. We’re kind to hair and it shows.
By using more certified organic ingredients and fewer chemicals than anyone else we’ve created an effective way to colour hair as naturally as possible.
With Outstanding Results
And because hair responds better to natural ingredients our products give outstanding results.
Our unique approach is gentler on hair and locks in colour, moisture and goodness to every strand.
So hair looks naturally healthier and glossier with radiant colour.
Made in Britain with TLC
(Tender Loving Colour)
Combining the best of British know-how and natural ingredients we create Tender Loving Colour with absolutely no ammonia, resorcinol or parabens.
We make our beautiful hair products in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire using lots of lovely natural, organic ingredients.
With Organic Colour Systems hair is naturally healthier.
Why Organic Colour Systems?
“Organic Colour Systems is more than outstanding products – it’s a system of total hair care. Used together, its ranges deliver outstanding results with coloured hair.
Every product in every range is specially formulated to work together for naturally healthier hair and longer-lasting colour.
It works because it’s gentle and
The system is designed to treat coloured hair gently at every stage of every treatment from shampooing to styling.
Most other hair care products use chemicals that strip hair of colour and health as they style, perm and straighten.
Organic Colour Systems takes a different approach. With Organic Colour Systems every product in every range contains the minimum of chemicals and the maximum of certified organic ingredients.
And because all of the OCS products are gentle and non-damaging to hair, hair looks healthier and colour stays locked in. Plus, all of the products can safely be used together.
The care range and colour range
The Organic Colour Systems care range and colour range work together for outstanding results.
Our uniquely natural shampoos and reconstructors soften the hair before colouring and gently open up the outer layer (cuticle) so colour is easily absorbed.
Then our nourishing conditioners close the cuticle completely, and restore hair to its natural pH value. That means colour stays locked in and hair looks smooth and shiny.
Our care range products also contain natural UV light filters to protect hair and keep colour longer-lasting.
Nourishes, protects and strengthens coloured hair
All our products are packed with natural moisturisers and proteins that nourish, protect and strengthen coloured hair during every process from shampooing to straightening. So hair looks healthier than ever.
Even damaged hair can safely be coloured and styled with Organic Colour Systems. Our uniquely nourishing and strengthening formulations work together across all ranges to repair damaged hair in a short time.
With our flexible system, hair in any condition can be successfully coloured, styled, straightened or permed. And these processes can be done one after the other without causing any damage to the hair.
Naturally styled, permed and
Our control range is rich in natural conditioners that add extra body, hold and shine, and protect hair during styling. It doesn’t matter how often hair is styled, it won’t get damaged.
Our straightening system uses a natural product, keratin, to straighten and condition hair at the same time. And our perm system is uniquely gentle and natural for natural, healthy looking curls.
Thanks to our unique system, all our products are safe to use on coloured hair and work together to create long-lasting colour and healthy hair.”Leave a reply

“Beauty from the inside out is what we’re going for with a healthy lifestyle.
Rather than looking to your vanity table for a beauty fix, take a look in your kitchen — you might be surprised how much what you eat can affect your skin and hair!
1. Dark chocolate
Contrary to popular belief, chocolate does not cause acne. In fact, research has shown that dark chocolate even protects skin from sun damage. Chocolate, or rather raw cacao, contains anti-aging antioxidants called flavonoids, which fight free radicals to protect your skin from UV damage and prevent the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discolorations.
Chocolate also makes you feel happy — when you eat it, the brain releases endorphins, your body’s natural feel-good chemical, and phenylethylamine, which elicits the head-over-heels feeling of falling in love. When you feel good, you look good.
Walnuts contain nutrients like omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin E that help your skin stay smooth and plump. Walnuts also protect your hair from sun damage and keep it lustrous and shiny. Get your daily dose of by eating a handful raw or throwing some chopped walnuts in your salad, pasta or dessert.
Spinach contains a triple dose of wrinkle-fighting antioxidants: vitamin C, vitamin E, and beta-carotene. These all work together to protect your skin from the sun’s aging UV rays (but you should still wear sunscreen, of course). Enjoy spinach in salads, green smoothies, or lightly sautéed with coconut oil, garlic and a dash of sea salt.
These legumes are a good source of protein and iron, which support full-bodied hair. Enjoy them as a side dish, in a hearty soup, or make your own lentil-veggie burgers.
5. Chia seeds
These tiny seeds are packed with protein, fiber, and loads of omega-3s — all great for your skin and hair. Since chia seeds absorb up to 12 times their weight in water, they also keep you feeling fuller longer. Enjoy them as a pudding, in smoothies, or as an egg substitute in vegan baking.
Almonds are rich in flavonoids and vitamin E, which is vital to skin health. They can help ward off damaging free radicals and even oxidative damage caused by smoking. Almonds also make a great source of satisfying fiber and protein, and their manganese and selenium content helps keep your hair shiny. Snack on a handful of almonds, or enjoy them in almond butter spread on apple slices.
Flaxseeds provide a huge boost of omega-3 fatty acids, which are beyond good for you. Preliminary studies have shown that both omega-6 and omega- 3 fatty acids help prevent or treat skin conditions like acne and eczema. The anti-inflammatory properties of omega-3s can also maintain a healthy rate of skin cell renewal. To ensure your body absorbs all these beauty-boosting benefits, eat flaxseeds in ground or “meal” form.
Avocados are the ultimate “get gorgeous” food. Ever seen shampoos or facial masks using avocados? There’s a reason for that.
Key for hair, skin, and nails, the monounsaturated fatty acids packed into these creamy treats not only help lower bad cholesterol levels, but also reduce the appearance of aging in skin. Avocados also contain antioxidants, fiber, potassium, magnesium, and folate, and one avocado is packed with more potassium than a medium banana — nearly 700 milligrams! Eat avocado in guacamole, sliced on top of a salad or sandwich, or even with a spoon — we won’t judge.
Berries are loaded with anti-inflammatory agents and vitamins that help protect you from premature aging. The antioxidants in berries help minimize the damage of free radicals, which can accelerate wrinkle formation and cause disease. Additionally, berries are packed with vitamin C, which keeps skin firm and strong. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is essential to the production of collagen, a protein that aids in the growth of cells and blood vessels. Eat a handful of your favorite berry with breakfast, or pureed into a smoothie.
Sea vegetables like nori or wakame are loaded with iron and phytonutrients. All of these nutrients can help you attain gorgeous, supple skin. Iron, manganese, iodine, copper, zinc, omega-3 fatty acids, and selenium — all found in sea vegetables — are essential for gorgeous hair, skin, and nails. Enjoy these in mixed green salads, toss some wakame into your miso soup, or wrap up some veggies in nori sheets to make nori rolls.”
