October 2017 Hair Care PSA

This is your October 2017 hair care PSA.  Now is the time that we sort through our wardrobe and change our hair and make-up.  It is the perfect time to sort through our hairbrushes and products.  Out with the old and in with the new!

 

Gather your products.  Look at the back labels.  There is an emblem that looks like an open container.  You will see a number and the letter “M”.  This tells you the number of months that product stays good once it has been opened.  

 

Now gather your brushes!  If the bristles look worn, toss it!  For the other, clean out the hair and wash them in warm soapy water.  Doing this every three to four months keeps debris off of your clean hair and scalp.

 

October 2017 Hair Care PSA

  • Know your hair care expiration dates
  • Use all hair care products before their expiration
  • Clean brushes every three to four months (use warm soapy water)
  • Throw away old hairbrushes with worn out bristles

Your Hair Color Journey

While some believe you should change your hair color as the seasons change, I believe your hair color journey should be continuous throughout the year. It is great to have trends that come and go, however, it is more stylish to incorporate a little at a time.

 

Trends like Balayage and Babylights will continue to be popular. Flat single-process hair color is out. Whether you are the traditional woman or a trendsetter… multi-dimensional hair color is a must-have.  This is easy to translate into everyday colors without feeling like you “stand out”.

 

Hair color is the new make-up! Let’s go at it in a more doable fashion than “out with the old and in with the new”.

 

Your Hair Color Journey

  • Get involved – look at Pinterest and Instagram for new ideas
  • No need to throw out the old – incorporate some new color and techniques
  • Update as the seasons change – make gradual changes throughout the year
  • Keep up with your regrowth – don’t do colors that you cannot or will not maintain

Ammonia Color to Organic Color

Many people are changing from ammonia color to organic color.  They are all very happy that there are no fumes and no scalp irritation.  There is a huge difference for my guests as well as for me.

 

Today’s guest has been coloring for many years.  She has recently noticed that she is more sensitive to chemicals in the color containing ammonia.  I introduced her to the Organic Colour Systems beginning with a wet stretch test.  Once her hair is analyzed I did a clarifying shampoo. Now I apply Power Build Treatment on the midshaft and ends, Aqua Boost Treatment to her roots.  While she is relaxing with her treatment, I formulate her color.  

 

Ammonia Color to Organic Color 

There are significant benefits of organic color –

  • 100% ammonia free
  • No scalp irritation
  • Less color fadage
  • Better overall condition of the hair
  • Natural and organic ingredients

Commitment to Healthy Hair

Your commitment to healthy hair should begin with organic color and hair care products.  Moving from traditional color and hair care products takes some getting use to.  I can guide you with personalized tricks specific to your hair type.

 

The transition to using Organic Colour Systems (OCS) care range can sometimes be a little difficult if you are use to the feeling of plastic coated hair.  If your hair is not in optimal condition, OCS will not trick you into thinking that it is.  Your hair may not feel “soft and silky” for the first few weeks of your new program.  However, unlike many other hair care systems, OCS will actually repair damage to your hair transforming it to truly healthy hair.

 

Commitment to Healthy Hair

  • A wet stretch test – shows exactly what the hair is in need of
  • Pre-treating your hair prior to a service – moisture or protein for the hair
  • Coloring with Organic Colour Systems – using a chemical free color source
  • Using the appropriate products at home – styling products to continue your healthy hair journey
  • Treatments at home once a week – your commitment to caring for your hair at home

Although the initial stage of changing to these products can be difficult, do not give up! It is really worth the commitment.

Healthy Hair Game Plan

With a good healthy hair game plan, we can all avoid dull color, split ends and limp locks!  Trichorrhexis nodosa is the technical term for broken hair, which is most likely fragile and damaged hair strands…which we want to avoid.  

 

Traditional coloring and continuous heat styling can create gaps on the outer cuticle layer.  These gaps can cause

  • Color fadage
  • Dullness
  • Hair breakage
  • Split ends
  • Frizzy Hair

 

Healthy Hair Game Plan

  • Quality products – gentle products with good ingredients
  • Pump up the protein or moisture – eliminates frizz and dryness while strengthening and moisturizing with weekly treatments at home
  • Strive for more stretch – treatments done at home on a weekly basis provides better elasticity. Better elasticity creates body and shine
  • Close the cuticle – styling products that do not build up, but protect and close the cuticle, are key in day to day styling
  • Dust the ends – get regular TRIMS so that split ends do not travel up the hair shaft 

In addition to strengthening, moisturizing and protecting your locks, your hair needs to be fairly elastic.  Elasticity prevents breakage when detangling and blow dry styling. Your hair is not a pair of jeans that you can take off and wear another day.  Be kind to your hair!

Organic Labeling

Organic labeling for cosmetics, lotions and other personal hygiene products must be certified for compliance with NSF (National Sanitation Foundation).  They are then permitted to bear the NSF “contains organic ingredients” mark.  This mark on the label lets the consumer know the product is in compliance with this standard. The product label must also state the exact percentage of organic content on the label.

 

In the United States, the USDA National Organic Program (NOP) is responsible for setting regulations for organic agricultural products that are either produced in the U.S. or imported for sale in this country.

In addition to setting requirements for how organic agricultural products are grown, processed and handled, the NOP also sets labeling requirements for these products.

 

Organic Labeling Requirements 

  • Products labeled as “100% organic” must contain only organically produced ingredients and processing aids, excluding water and salt. No other ingredients or additives are permitted.
  • Products labeled “organic” must contain at least 95 percent organically produced ingredients (excluding water and salt).
  • Processed products that contain at least 70 percent organic ingredients can use the phrase “made with organic ingredients” and list up to three of the organic ingredients or food groups on the principal display panel.
  • Processed products containing less than 70 percent organic ingredients cannot use the term “organic” anywhere on the principal display panel.

 

The NOP requires that all products bearing organic labeling

  • Identify each organically produced ingredient.
  • List the organic ingredient in the ingredient statement on the information panel.
  • Display the name of the certifying agent, of the final product, on the information panel.

Organic Certification

The organic certification process is very detailed.  For consumers, “certified organic” serves as product assurance, similar to “low fat”, “100% whole wheat”, or “no artificial preservatives”.   For producers, certification identifies suppliers that meet the requirements for use in certified operations.  The intention is to assure quality, prevent fraud and to promote commerce. 

 

More and more consumers are purchasing organic products through traditional channels as the worldwide demand grows.  As such, consumers must rely on third-party regulatory certification.  These certification bodies have their own service marks, which can act as branding to consumers.  Some certification bodies, such as the Soil Association, certify to higher standards.

 

For first-time farm certification, the soil must meet basic requirements of being free from use of prohibited substances (synthetic chemicals etc) for a number of years.  This is known as being in transition.  Transition crops are not thought of as fully organic.

 

Organic Certification

In order to certify a farm, the farmer is typically needs to engage in a number of new activities, in addition to normal farming activities

  • Study the organic standards which gives specific details of what is and what is not allowed for every aspect of farming.  This includes farming, storage, transporting and sale of goods.
  • Compliance – Farm facilities and production methods must comply with the standards.  This may involve modifying facilities, sourcing and changing suppliers.
  • Documentation – Extensive paperwork is necessary, detailing farm history, current set-up, results of soil and water tests.
  • Planning – A written annual production plan.  This plan will detail everything from seed sources, field and crop locations, fertilization, pest control activities, harvest methods and storage locations.
  • Inspection – Annual on-farm inspections are a requirement.  Inspections consist of a physical tour, examination of records and an oral interview.
  • Fee – An annual inspection/certification fee is necessary.  Currently in the US and Canada, fee are $400-$2000/year, depending on the agency and size of the operation.
  • Record-Keeping – Written day-today farming and marketing records, covering all activities, must be available for inspection at any time.

 

Certification for operations other than farms is similar.  The focus is on ingredients, other inputs, processing, handling conditions and transportation.  A transport company would need to detail the use and maintenance of its vehicles, storage facilities, containers and more. A restaurant would have its premises inspected and its suppliers verified as certified organic.Farm Fresh Organic Certification
