My Hair Trip: The Organic Salon Denver

Our guests and our clients will always leave us feeling good about having come to our salon. They won’t always know what it was exactly that affected them in such a different way than any other salon they’ve ever been to. It will be the big things but mostly their experience, subconsciously, will be about all the little things.

We offer the highest quality non-toxic beauty products and services available, but that is not the main thing that we offer as a business. The main thing that we offer as a business is a one of a kind guest experience. We give our guests and clients a consistent positive experience on every visit in which we cater to their needs in a genuine and professional manor.

Part of the guests’ experience is that the salon is always neat, clean and organized. Our dress is always the same, neat, clean and organized. Every interaction the guest has with our business sends a message and sets an agreement with our guests. If our front desk is messy or cluttered the guest sees that and it sends them the message that our business is messy and cluttered. If our dress is sloppy or uninspired then the message to our guest is that we are sloppy and uninspired.

When we offer our guests drinks or snacks and we continue to check in on them throughout their services it sends a message to our guests that they are important to us and that their needs are being attended to without them having to ask anybody to tend to them.

When a guest sees our team helping each other it sends a message that we are a community and that we are motivated by more than just our own individual needs.

Every first visit to our business sets an agreement to our guests of what to expect when they visit us. The experience must be a positive one and it must be the same every time so not to violate the agreement that has been set between the business and the guest.

    THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX: HAIRSTYLING IS ART!

    BEING AN ARTIST IS ABOUT CRAFTING YOUR CREATIVE INSPIRATION INTO MATERIAL, AND THIS IS WHAT A HAIRSTYLIST SHOULD DO
    FRESH FROM WINNING THE PRESTIGIOUS 2015 BEST AVANT GARDE AIPP AWARD FOR HIS FASCINATING CREATIVITY, DAVINES ARTISTIC DIRECTOR, ANGELO SEMINARA, TELLS US MORE ABOUT HIS ARTISTIC DEVOTION TO THE HAIRSTYLING PROFESSION.
    Angelo, what does inspire you most?
    “Inspiration can come from so many different places, but the essence of the natural world is surely what inspires me most. Mother Nature surrounds us and permeates every aspect of our life with boundless beauty that will never stop to fill with wonder the eyes of those who want to see it. I am indeed very curious and I think that inspiration is basically all about curiosity and passion for what you do: if you don’t have that hunger for knowledge, then you are just missing so many chances of discovering and inventing something new, both in hairstyling and in life.”
    Think outside the box news 22/3BackNext

    Where does creativity meet hairstyling?
    “I think that creativity is a recipe made of many different ingredients: inspiration sources, individual sensitivity and, last but not least, the love and dedication to your profession, hairstyling in my case.
    One of my objectives in hairstyling is to step outside the box, to create something that seems impossible and unexpected, that pleases my eyes, mind and soul, but nevertheless my philosophy is always to make a woman look beautiful and modern. Originality often means eclecticism, a mix of elements coming from different forms of art, that’s why to work with hair I also search for inspiration from other fields that are not necessarily the hairdressing one, such as fashion industry, photography, architecture, design and contemporary art. I like to collect, combine and experiment, translating all the ideas and re-elaborating all influences in various ways: besides my salon work, my creative collection productions and magazine shooting works, I design hair for art curators for fashion exhibitions.
    I love hairdressing and if you love something in life you automatically become loyal and truthful to it. Hairdressing is my passion, through good and bad times and I always stick with it. Every day I look forward to my job. I definitely believe creative hairdressing is an art form in itself, a vital visual force to complement other arts.”

    If we ask you to tell us the name of a hairstylist who represented a turning point for your career…
    “The first name that comes into my mind is for sure that of Trevor Sorbie, a real hairdressing icon, who has inspired the whole sector at a worldwide level, becoming a mentor for many of today’s top hairdressers, thanks to his ability of always combining perfectly the highest quality standards with the most excellent hairdressing. Working with him for 15 years was a very meaningful and enriching life experience, he became like a father to me and I feel very grateful for what he gave me from both a professional and a human point of view.”

    What is new, in your opinion, in the latest hairstyling trends?
    “While rushing through the professional day by day routine, a hairdresser, like all the other artisans, sometimes runs the risk of forgetting to focus on some basic aspects of his craft, missing some great chances of adding value to his work.
    I think that this is the moment to rediscover the creative potential of blow-drying that, in my opinion, is precious like an accessory to be worn, the final expert touch that enhances the beauty of a style. I’m working with Davines on something new, an homage to this special craft, to give it back its artistic dignity. I perceive the blow-drying as an art, and I want to invite all the hairdressers to realize their own masterpiece with hair. You’ll discover soon what I am talking about, I hope that you’ll enjoy it and that you’ll have fun!”

          Brazilian Blowout Hair Straightening Product Contains Dangerous Levels Of Cancer-Causing Formaldehyde

          Those sleek, pin straight locks desired by many girls might come at a higher price than many hair professionals are aware of. The Brazilian Blowout Acai Professional Smoothing Hair Solution, a permanent hair straightening system, was recently discovered to have cancer causing agents in the formula.

          Soon to be published in the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Hygiene, the study shows that salon stylist and clients were being exposed to high levels of formaldehyde. Formaldehyde is a colorless, flammable, strong-smelling chemical commonly used in building materials, household products, and in the embalming fluid used to preserve human corpses.

          Study author Michelle Stewart, of the University of California, Berkeley, found that “formaldehyde concentrations in the air around hairstylists and customers exceeded limits set by the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the U.S. National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, and the California Division of Occupational Safety and Health,” as reported by MedicineNet.com.

          Formaldehyde primarily affects the upper respiratory tract. A 1980 laboratory study conducted on rats has shown that a high exposure of formaldehyde could lead to certain cancers, including nasal cancer. Several studies cited by the American Cancer Society have established a link between formaldehyde and cancers of the uppermost part of the throat (nasopharynx). However other studies sponsored by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and other organizations are inconclusive.

          Research also points to a connection between formaldehyde exposure and leukemia. “A recent study found that workers exposed to formaldehyde had higher than normal levels of chromosome changes in early white blood cells in their bone marrow,” according to the American Cancer Society. “This finding supports the possible link between formaldehyde exposure and leukemia.”

          Measures have been enacted to reduce workplace exposure to the carcinogen. In 1987, the U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) mandated that workers exposed to formaldehyde must be limited to an eight-hour work day and that the limit was reduced from 3 ppm (parts per million) to 1 ppm. Five years later, the limitations on formaldehyde exposure became more strict as the amount was further reduced to 0.75 ppm.

          The Brazilian Blowout formula has a higher concentration than what is recommended. “The recommendation is that salons use products containing no more than 0.1 percent formaldehyde, but the product we investigated contained 12 percent formaldehyde,” said Stewart.

          The chemical hair straightening treatment helps girls with curly or wavy hair turn their tresses sleek and straight. The treatment can last up to three months and needs to be redone once the person’s hair starts to grow out. Documented side effects from using the product include water eyes, runny nose, upper respiratory tract infections, and nose bleeds.

          So before you make the jump to transform your Shirley Temple locks into perfectly straight, Kim Kardashian hair, you might want to weigh the risks against the benefits. Be sure to explore other straightening methods that are less chemically invasive and formaldehyde free.

            Not all Ammonia-Free Color is Created Equal

            Before we jump to any conclusions, one should know the differences among the salon industry’s top professional color lines – not all ammonia-free hair color is created equal.

            First, let’s quickly remind ourselves the part ammonia plays in hair color:

            Ammonia’s primary function is to raise the pH of the hair, open the cuticle, and allow for color to enter the cortex. The more ammonia in a color product, the higher the pH of the hair will become and the wider the cuticle will open.

            The average working pH of hair processed with ammoniated hair color is 10-11, while the natural isometric pH of hair is 4.5-5.5!

            NOTE: The pH scale is logarithmic, meaning with each rise in pH level, the new level is 10x more alkaline or acidic than the previous level – that’s huge!

            This means ammonia-based hair color makes the hair 600x more alkaline than it’s original state. This blasting open of the cuticle makes re-closing the hair nearly impossible, resulting in a major loss of protein and moisture, as well as imminent color fading and damage.

            Depending on the brand, you can find any number of these ingredients used instead of ammonia.
            – Monoethanolamine (MEA)
            – Ethanolamine
            – Cocomide MEA
            – Aminomethylpropanol (AMEA)

            Here’s where the difference in ammonia free hair color lines gets serious!

            While MEA or Ethanolamine are odorless and not as corrosive as ammonia, the pH of the hair is STILL raised to an extraordinarily high level, if used in the same percentages as ammonia.

            The only thing most brands have achieved in removing ammonia is just that – the removal of ammonia – they’ve still neglected one of the most vital components of hair health – a balanced pH!

            So, what can professional ammonia free hair color brands do to ensure the pH of the hair is kept intact?

            The answer is simple – use heat to help open the cuticle.

            If a professional, ammonia-free color line doesn’t use heat to help open the cuticle, they’re using MEA or Ethanolamine in the same percentages as ammonia, and consequently, wreaking havoc on the structural integrity of the hair.

            Aim for color lines that minimize the use of Ethanolamine and MEA, not ones that just simply swap ammonia for an odor-free alternative.

            Most ammonia-free hair color lines use a synthetic source of Ethanolamine – produced by the reaction of ethylene oxide with ammonia.

            However, there’s a natural source of Ethanolamine derived from the fatty acids in coconut, called Cocomide MEA. The natural emollients present in this form of MEA makes this option much more desirable in hair color.

            The extraction method is more costly than cooking up some synthetic MEA in a lab.

            Alas, there’s another problem with using Ethanolamine and MEA in higher than necessary percentages… the removal process.

            It has been postulated that this ingredient is hard to remove from hair.

            Companies still standing by ammoniated hair color have used this aspect of MEA as a way to denounce its effectiveness, but have failed to realize one enormous detail.

            The best ammonia-free hair color lines have added Oleic acid (derived from olive oil) to safely remove any product left on the hair.

            However, some ammonia-free color lines haven’t caught on to this little trick – make sure to use brands that have!

            We’ve covered the primary role of ammonia, and it’s more desirable alternatives, but don’t forget – ammonia also has a secondary function.

            When mixed with peroxide, ammonia neutralizes the existing color pigment, allowing color to further penetrate the cuticle.

            Ethanolamine and MEA aren’t capable of doing this effectively.

            So, an ammonia-free hair color line must have a color delivery system that compensates for the lack of ammonia.

            Top-rated hair color lines have found an oil-based delivery system not only solves this problem, but that it actually works better than ammonia.

            Hair absorbs oil before water, so using oil as a means of color molecule transport is not only effective, but optimal in any color line.

            When deciding which ammonia-free color line is best for your salon and stylists, be sure to dig deeper into these type of ingredients!

              Packed with certified organic ingredients
              Rich in anti-oxidants, and nutrients

              Organic Salon Systems is the world’s only hair color that is:
              • Truly Salon Exclusive & ammonia free;
              • Supreme 100% Resistent Grey Coverage;

              All these products are completely intermixable to produce an unlimited array of shades, tones, and specialized results. The gel consistency of the color and array of thickness of the activators finally empowers you to truly become a hair color artist.

              Ammonia is a damaging corrosive toxin that should be kept out of the salons because:

              It severely damages the cuticle and destroys tyrosine, the hair’s protein that develops melatonin (hair’s natural pigmentation). The more the tyrosine protein is damaged, the less capable the hair is of “holding on to” color.

              It is a caustic toxin that causes both short and long term damage to the throats and lungs. Long term exposure can permanently damage the respiratory system.

              Organic Color Systems provides Colorists with a comprehensive professional system that delivers unsurpassed results with only the most natural and organic ingredients.

              A lot of salons tell their stylists and clients that their color lines are natural or organic, or ammonia free, but they are not. Ask your stylist or your salon what line they use and do your own research. It does matter, it’s your health and your life.

              Why should you have to sacrifice your health and wellbeing to get the look that you want. Now there is a Denver salon that specializes in achieving any and every look without causing any harm to your health.

              My Hair Trip Salon Denver specializes in chemical free, eco-friendly hair care products and services. At Denver’s only certified green salon, barbershop, art gallery, and boutique they understand that what you put on your hair and skin needs to be just as safe as the things that we eat.

                Health: The real benefits of going organic, plus beauty the natural way

                Organic vegetables, fruit and cereals – and the food made from them – are between 19 and 69 per cent higher in key antioxidants, which are linked to health benefits. They also contain significantly lower levels of toxic heavy metals and pesticides, according to new research. International experts, led by Professor Carlo Leifert at Newcastle University, carried out the analysis of 343 studies on the nutritional differences between organic and conventionally grown crops. The increased antioxidants could be equivalent to eating one to two more portions of veg or fruit daily, say the experts.

                Beauty the natural way
                May I draw your attention to Organic Beauty Week, which starts tomorrow? Many of the organic cosmetic brands that Jo Fairley and I highlight in The Ultimate Natural Beauty Bible (Kyle Books, £19.99*) are offering special shopping events and offers (online and in store), demos, workshops and talks.
                So, why consider organic cosmetics? For some, it makes sense to put environment- and animal-friendly, ethical and sustainably sourced products on your body as well as in it. But for many, the compelling factor is skin irritation. In the experience of Dr Rabia Malik (drrabiamalik.com), who specialises in natural solutions to skin problems, ‘Synthetic chemicals in skincare, combined with the pollution our skin faces daily, can trigger or exacerbate sensitivity.’
                When doctors told high-flying PR Sarah Brown that the only treatment for her chronic urticaria (a serious skin allergy) was a daily high dose of antihistamines, she started investigating her beauty products to identify any ingredients that might be triggering the attacks. What she found shocked her: ‘Synthetic ingredients very commonly used in cosmetics can cause skin sensitisation and allergies, either immediately or through prolonged use.’
                Sarah’s solution was to launch Pai (paiskincare.com), an organically certified, plant-based skincare range, in 2007.
                ‘It was important to have organic certification because I discovered that some so-called natural skincare companies were using the same synthetic chemicals, while making misleading “organic” claims,’ she says.

                Skincare can be therapeutic in its own right. Suffolk-based herbalist and aromatherapist Margaret Weeds, co-founder of Essential Care (now rebranded as Odylique, odylique.co.uk), began creating products by hand in the 1980s to soothe her own and her family’s highly sensitive, eczema-prone skin. Her concoctions, made from pure plant oils with herbs from her garden, were so effective that friends and clients queued up for remedies. A request for shampoo to treat scalp psoriasis led to Gentle Herb Shampoo, the world’s first organically certified shampoo. A decade later, these multi-award-winning products are still formulated by Margaret and handmade in Suffolk.

                  Small Businesses Go Green, Using More Environmentally Friendly Products and Practices

                  “Many company owners use environmentally friendly cars, recycle materials and buy biodegradable office supplies because they care about what happens to the environment. It also makes good business sense, making their companies more competitive and lifting employees’ morale.

                  W&M Properties, a New York-based real estate company that also has a construction affiliate, has switched its fleet of more than 25 pickup trucks to hybrid Ford Escape cars. President Tony Malkin said of the hybrids, “they pay for themselves in the fuel savings.” He noted that most of the company’s driving is done on local streets, and called the pickups’ mileage “appalling.”

                  W&M has also implemented recycling programs in the buildings it manages, including ones that handle discarded computers — “it’s what you’re supposed to do, but people don’t do it,” Malkin said.

                  The company also is recycling about half the materials it’s removing from a project being done for Pitney Bowes. “You’re using less landfill space, and it’s product that can be used again in the future,” Malkin said.

                  Malkin said his company is using more green practices because “the current way of doing business is destructible.” But, he said, “people want to do business in an environmentally sustainable fashion and we are at a competitive advantage by moving the needle toward green.”

                  There are many ways that companies can go green. Some of them are simple, and basic, such as conserving energy with appliances and equipment that aren’t power guzzlers. Recycling is a very common way to go green. So is buying paper and other supplies that are made with recycled material.

                  There are plenty of resources detailing how to go green on the Internet, in bookstores and in libraries. Environmental groups have information as well.

                  Mark Mandel, co-owner of Mark Drugs, a Roselle, Ill., pharmacy, said his business recycles even though the local government doesn’t have a recycling program.

                  “It’s an extra effort, but we feel it’s important to be conscientious about the environment,” he said.

                  Mandel said paper from computer printouts is sorted, with blanks pulled out, saved and reused. His company hasn’t needed to buy prescription pads since it started recycling.

                  He also finds it’s good for morale. “The staff realizes you are concerned,” he said, and noted that the good feeling generated by his attitude filters down to their interactions with customers.

                  “Everyone takes a team attitude,” he said.

                  The company plans to construct its own building in the future, and Mandel said it will be a green building.

                  Of course, for some companies, their reason for being is green, for example, organic food stores or manufacturers of clothing made from natural fibers only.

                  Floorworks, a Toronto-based hardwood flooring manufacturer, sells green products — it says its wood comes from forests that have been approved by the Forest Stewardship Council, a group that aims at managing forests in an environmentally friendly way. Co-founder Brian Greenberg said the company also donates a percentage of its profits toward the replanting of rainforests.

                  Greenberg said the company wanted to help fight the deleterious effects of climate change. “One of the problems we can address through the sale of our products is to be involved with reforestation.”

                  That kind of activism appeals to many consumers, who are often drawn to the idea that the money they spend can be doing good for the world. But they’re also looking for products and services that are good for them — Greenberg said his company has thrived by selling flooring that isn’t covered with polyurethane, but that’s protected by oil. That stops plastic particles from going into the air, he said.

                  The Greenhouse Grille, a Fayetteville, Ark., restaurant, sells organic food and uses as many environmentally friendly products and services as it can find. Clayton Suttle, a co-owner, said he and his partners have eaten organic food for years because of its health benefits, and “when we were looking into opening a restaurant, it just kind of carried over.”

                  “We’re trying to go as much so-called green as we can,” he said.

                  The partners weren’t sure from the get-go that their concept would work. But organic food has become very popular in their area, and the fact that local organic farmers were selling their meat and produce to the restaurant has helped.”
