Do you experience burning, itchiness, or an irritated scalp during or after your color service? Sensitivity to hair color is a challenge for many women. Hormonal changes, medications, and even high levels of stress can cause your scalp to become sensitive. Because there are many hair color brands to choose from, it’s important to choose a salon that uses both colors and products that can appease sensitive scalps.
What can cause irritation in hair color?
There are three major culprits in hair color that can cause irritation: Ammonia, hydrogen peroxide, and Paraphenylenediamine (better known as PPD). At Studio Z Salon, we have chosen the organic approach by using All-Nutrient as our hair color provider. All-Nutrient uses healthy natural ingredients that focus on nurturing the scalp while providing vibrant, long-lasting color.
Why choose Studio Z Salon hair color?
We believe in All-Nutrient hair color because it is sulfate-free, gluten-free, paraben-free, formaldehyde-free, and monoethanolamine (MEA) / diethanolamine(DEA) free. It also does not use triclosans, propylene glycol, carcinogens, phthalates, pesticides, fungicides, herbicides, heavy metals, or other toxic materials. All-Nutrient is best known for its USDA-certified ingredient called Zemea® propandiol. It is 100% vegetable-derived and is All-Nutrient’s glycol alternative. It is petroleum-free, helps to prevent skin irritation, and improves moisture to keep hair healthy.
Another “sweet” aspect to our hair color process here at Studio Z Salon is we use Splenda to help reduce chemical irritation. Yes, you read that right Splenda. This artificial sweetener helps to neutralize ammonia by lowering the pH alkalinity in any hair dye. It’s a scalp-friendly solution and provides itch-relief.
Studio Z Salon prides itself on all aspects of its services, including thorough consultations and careful considerations in both formula and technique. But most important to a hair color service is the shampooing process. A gentle yet thorough massage during a shampoo is essential for successfully lifting color off of the scalp. We rinse for a longer-than-normal amount of time to ensure that all excess color has been removed from both the scalp and hair. We then apply a product called “No H2O2”. This neutralizes any peroxide residue that might remain in the hair after any chemical service that would contain peroxide. It conditions hair, eliminates post chemical odors (like during a perm), and increases color retention. Studio Z Salon is here to bring even the most sensitive beauty long-lasting hair color!
