At Bohiti all of our retail products are from Eco Hair Products. We highly recommend that our colour clients use something from the Eco line to look after their hair at home because being ammonia free the colours do need to be looked after a little bit differently.
A lot of other lines on the market contain harsh sulphate's, paraben's and detergents that are too strong and disruptive to the ammonia free colour molecule and tend to strip it away whilst also drying out the hair.
The CHI ORGANIC retail line is one that is 100% certified organic and is perfect for maintaining optimum hair condition whilst protecting your colour. This line also contains a complete range of styling products.
Also the CHI colour protecting sulphate free system is one that will lock in brighter vibrant colours and keep the hair shiny and healthy.
The CHI line of styling products is very extensive and has something to enhance all types, styles and textures of hair.
Some other retail lines include Biosilk and Arum. Eco hair products are constantly bringing out new lines that continue to improve the integrity of the hair and the Environment.
All of the staff attend regular product and retail training and are very qualified to consult and recommend the right colour and care for you.
WHY CHOOSE OUR AMMONIA FREE COLOURS?
Every day thousands of women have their hair professionally colored. In fact, 54% of us color our hair regularly! The hair color industry is ever changing, and ever growing - unfortunately environmental and immunity complications for salon clients are also growing. Much of this is due to the adverse effects of ammonia. Leaving the salon far from "refreshed," clients end up with headaches, stinging eyes, trouble breathing, or a nasty rash.
Conventional hair dyes usually contain ammonia, which is specifically designed to burn and degrade surfaces.
However, a new breed of hair color is available -fumeless, non-damaging, ammonia-free hair color. As we know, it's part of the future of beauty!
The reasons for choosing an ammonia-free hair color fall into three categories:
• your body's general health
• the health of your hair
• the health of your environment
GENERAL BODY HEALTH
Ammonia-based dark hair dye was linked by the National Cancer Institute in 1994 to a greater incidence of non-Hodgkin's lymphoma and multiple myeloma. A study published in 2001 by the International Journal of Cancer found that people who use permanent hair dye are 100% more likely to develop bladder cancer than those who use no permanent dye. 4-ABP is a known human carcinogen, and was recently found in off-the-shelf hair coloring products.
The characteristic flyaway and faded look that you see on some heavily bleached and coloured women comes after long-term use of ammonia agents, which leave the hair's cuticle, open and make the hair dry and brittle. Tyrosine, one of hair's amino acids, is also damaged by ammonia-based products. When Tyrosine is diminished, this greatly affects the hair's ability to hold onto color.
over 6.2 billion ounces of harmful chemicals from shampoos and conditioners are washed down the drains and out into our water every day.
Anyone that is concerned with the volume of chemicals they ingest every day should look into natural, ammonia-free hair color. However, it is even more useful at some particular stages of life!
• If you are pregnant - A growing body is well-sensitized to environmental hazards and tiny, unformed human beings are not so lucky. Avoiding chemical exposure is especially important when you are pregnant - but that doesn't mean you have to give up that flexibility with your looks, free of harmful fumes or odors!
• If you are covering greys - If your hair is losing (or has lost) its natural color, you'll be looking to color more often. With ammonia-free color, your hair doesn't lose the ability to hold color and remains strong and healthy, rather than developing the characteristic frizzy, flyaway look.
•Cancer and Survivors of Cancer - With the specific approval of their physicians, this is safe for cancer survivors without any harmful side effects and sensitive smells, and leaves the hair soft and sultry again.
•If you are Young or elderly - Younger and older people are especially sensitive to harsh chemicals. Ammonia-free hair color is particularly recommended for under-18s and over-60s.
Or if you just want to have better hair condition longer lasting colour and want to reduce your footprint on the environment, the CHI ammonia free hair colour system is for you.
