FAQ

We know there’s SO many questions when it comes to the green beauty industry and it can be pretty overwhelming!
We’re here to make the transition easy and simple, to a cleaner lifestyle. If you don’t
find an answer here, please feel free to email us at info@hairholistic.ca.

 

How natural are your products? 

We are always researching to make sure that the products that we’re using are the cleanest available with the highest level of performance. The backbar styling products (shampoo, conditioner, styling) are extremely clean, with ratings under 3 on Think Dirty - no parabens, sulphates, fragrance, etc.

At this time colour that is permanent and/or covers grey does require certain chemicals, any line claiming otherwise we would be skeptical of. The lines we currently use have the lowest amount of any required chemicals while still delivering a professional result. They have no ammonia, or heavy scents and are organic when possible. We stock Organic Colour Systems and Davines. If you are still concerned, there are many ways to colour hair that doesn’t touch the scalp.

Do they actually work?

They do! Since starting in the "clean beauty" space in 2014, Diana, has found that not only are these lines very comparable to “traditional” products but even surpass them in efficacy sometimes. We can create blondes, brunettes, redheads, pastels, balayage, etc.

What should I do (or not do) after my colour service?

Colour is a process and we want it to last as long as possible! Always wait 48-72 hours after leaving the salon to wash your hair and ensure you're using good quality, professional products (we have a couple we can recommend). We also recommend washing your hair in warm, not hot, water! Hot water will damage the hair, and your colour can fade a lot faster.

Do you do consultations?

We understand how important it is to feel comfortable heading into an appointment, whether you’re a new client or wanting to change up your look. A lot of the consulting can be done over email or a quick chat, if you have a more complex situation, we do offer a 30 minute In Depth Consultation for a small fee.

The In Depth Consultation is great for clients or salons! Whether you’re a client that needs some help with your haircare routine and products or a salon looking to make a change towards green beauty, this is a great choice.

I’m pregnant, is it safe to use colour?

We are not medical professionals, therefore we always recommend speaking with your doctor first. Should you choose to continue colouring your hair, we are comfortable doing so. We can also choose a technique that lessens your exposure, like highlights or balayage.

Where can I book?

I’m glad you asked! You can find all the info you need to reserve your appointment here.

 

 

We wish to acknowledge this land on which our hair salon operates. For thousands of years the city known as “Toronto” has been home to human activity. This area we stand on is the traditional land of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. We also acknowledge that Toronto is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit. Today, this meeting place is still the home to many Indigenous people from across Turtle Island and we are grateful to have the opportunity to live and work on this land.
