Organic hair salons in France
More and more, beauty rhymes with health. Organic hair salons in France are growing every year. Of course, they are surfing on the "green" and eco-responsible trend. But in this field as in aesthetics, beauty rhymes more and more with health.
Hairdressing salons with the organic label, care products and colorings plant-based are increasingly popular with customers who are changing their habits in response to growing awareness.
Biocoiff' hair salons, like their counterparts, are witnesses of this revolution in hairdressing.
Why is there such a craze for organic hair salons in France?
The environment and the future of our planet concern each and every one of us.
This sensitivity to naturalness and the protection of the living environment is a growing concern every year. In 2018, a study by the BVA institute revealed that 64% of French people were ready to take the step of a hair salon having obtained the label "Sustainable development: my hairdresser" to take care of their hair, while they were only 38% in 2015.
The same study also showed that the vast majority of French people prefer to occasionally or systematically use products that are guaranteed to be free of substances that are harmful to health (83%), labeled "sustainable development" (75%) or organic (75%).
Unquestionably, the "green" trend is well established in our daily lives and also affects business life. The French are very keen on companies and craftsmen who show a virtuous approach to the well-being of their staff and their environment.
Under these conditions, organic hairdressing salons are a real success, because these establishments participate both in the protection of their environment and the health of their customers.
By banning chemical colorings , sulphate-based shampoos and conditioners full of parabens, organic hairdressers are acting for the well-being of their clients and the planet.
However, let's not cry haro on the classic hairdressers who are also excellent professionals having received a traditional training. Organic hairdressers come to natural products by personal choice and conviction and among them there are many "classic" hairdressers.
What is an organic hair salon?
The big difference between a "classic" hairdresser and an "organic" hairdresser comes from the technique of coloring hair. Organic hairdressers systematically use colorings based on natural pigments from dye plants such as henna, madder or camomile.
These natural colours made by mixing powders plant-based with water will coat the fiber hair without damaging it. On the contrary, the chemical colorings penetrate and open the scales of the hair to dye it, at the risk of damaging it.
Over the course of colorings, the hair becomes dry, dull and limp. The scalp can also react. An allergy or eczema can be caused by the ingredients contained in a chemical coloring .
The philosophy of an organic hairdresser often goes beyond the products used to treat the hair. An organic hairdresser in France is generally committed to the environment by acting on :
- the management of waste water
- the atmosphere in his hairdressing salon
- the recycling of magazines
The label entitled "Sustainable development: my hairdresser is committed" rewards hairdressing salons that make real efforts in terms of the environment with a score from 1 to 3.
This label is given to salons committed to reducing their water consumption and thermal energy consumption, dealing with waste management and taking into account the health and well-being of their customers and staff.
