What Products Do You Use?
For Hair Color, I am in love with Organic Colour Systems!
95% naturally derived and 60% certified organic ingredients.
Dermatologically tested and patented permanent hair colour formula.
Designed to work harmoniously with the biology and structure of the hair.

For hair care and styling, I use Innersense Organic Beauty. They are a California based beauty company that specialize in products for curly hair, although I think their products are great for all hair types. I also love to use Onesta for their styling products.
For makeup and skincare, I have so many favorites! Some of them include W3LL People, 100% Pure, Ilia Beauty, Lily Lolo, Santee Naturals, Weleda and of course my own handmade products, Naked Eye Beauty.
Does Any of the Color Contain PPD?
PPD is one of the important components that makes hair color have its "color" and is necessary even in organic color. However, Organic Colour Systems has the lowest percentage PPD than any other brand available and is low enough to be considered PPD-Free. I think it is important to be completely transparent with the ingredients so I will never say that it is PPD-Free. I do offer an alternative hair color that is suitable for people with PPD allergies but it is a demi-permanent color and may not work for gray coverage or if you wanted to go a few shades lighter than your natural color.
Does Organic Hair Color Cover Up Gray Hair?
It is AMAZING for gray coverage! Since there is no ammonia in the color, my process is to first soften up the cuticle of the hair so it easily absorbs the color. The way to do this is to first shampoo the hair and then apply a pre-treatment, depending on the condition of your hair, to get the hair prepped for the color. The color is actually applied to wet hair instead of dry hair, then I use a heat cap that uses your body heat to process. The end result is always a beautiful, soft blend of color that grows out gorgeously and never looks too harsh.
Is the Color Safe to Use if Pregnant?
I have served many pregnant women and have even used the color myself while pregnant and believe it is perfectly safe during the developmental stage. However, I do advise if you have any concerns please contact your OB/Physician with the ingredients for their reference. I can email you the ingredients for the hair color if requested, please see the contact page.
Are Your Products Vegan and Cruelty Free?
I am a huge advocate for animals and will always use products that are cruelty free. Organic Colour Systems and Onesta are completely vegan, while Innersense Beauty have a few products that contain beeswax and honey.
