The Shift to Organic Color in Orange County, California

For the last 30 years I have been a stylist and colorist in Orange County, California. In that time, I have seen many beauty products and color lines rise and fall in popularity, which gave me the opportunity to try many things. I would never want to bash any of the other products I have used. In fact, I was extremely satisfied with many of these products for years, being a loyal user and salesperson caused my client-base to grow with happy, satisfied clients. However, being always ready to try out the new technologies in haircolor and products, I never stopped experimenting when new ideas came forth. But, nothing prepared me for the paradigm shift that occurred when I began using Organic Color. 
The Organic Color Systems have allowed me to work in an environment with no fumes, which allows me to do color applications on those that may reject ordinary color lines, such as pregant women, children and people with allergies to chemicals. But the "green" reasons are just the beginning. My clients are more satisfied with the lasting color, calling me to extend their appointments for two more weeks because the color still looks great. The satisfaction of my clients os my number one goal and Organic Hair Color helps me to achieve this goal.

Always consult with your stylist first ask for something that’s will make you feel special.  If your hair is virgin hair (no chemicals in the past), you can get a fantastic result with just a semi or Demi-permanent color.  They add a lot of shine and luster that will gradually fade instead of growing out with a harsh line in your root area.  Since they don’t penetrate your hair the same way that a permanent color does, they are less damaging.  The benefit of a permanent hair color, however, is that it adds extra body to flat hair.  Your color specialist will be able to tell you what’s right for your hair and give you some great ideas.  They have to consider the quality and texture of your hair.  Face shape and skin tone when deciding on the right formula for you.  Looking for something a little sassy?  Have your stylist add a few lowlights.  This subtle enhancement can make a huge impact without being too bold.  If you’ve colored your hair before, you know what a big difference a fresh color makes.  Book your next appointment before leaving the salon or set the date of your next color on your calendar for no less than 6 weeks to keep your color looking its best.  Don’t forget your color protecting hair care products (shampoo, conditioner, etc).

These colors are reminiscent of food and good memories.  Carmel, Cinnamon, chestnut, toffee, chocolate…  Be careful when describing the color to your Stylist or color specialist.  What you think the color is may be different than their interpretation.  Instead of trying to describe the color, find a couple of photos that have a good representation so they can match it up with color swatches.  Stick with really warm colors and be prepared to refresh the color more frequently than other colors.  

Reds tend to fade the fastest!  Ask your stylist or color specialist for their secret color-saving tricks.  On top of the specialty formulated products available, they may tell you to wear a Hat or scarf if spending a lot of time in the sun make sure to use hair products that have a sun screen.  If you want to keep the color really vibrant, go in every 3-4 weeks for a semi-permanent shine and glazing treatment.  It will add the shine back in that would have faded in that time.  You can mix and match reds and browns to get really amazing color combinations.  Your stylist or colorist can add a few foils in strategic places so it appears that you have a “glow.”  Different color hues techniques can be applied to get a fun color without having to be too extreme.
