Recently, we wrote about a scary new study that revealed using hair dye may increase your breast cancer risk. Chances are, it left you wondering whether that meant you’d have to stop colouring your hair so as to not expose yourself to potentially harmful toxins. The short answer is — no! More and more organic hair salons have been popping up around Australia, that use natural products —not chemicals — to give you that perfect balyage.
Not only are these salons better for your health and your hair (they’re less likely to cause damage), but they’re better for the environment, too. They tend to be a lot greener, in that they use eco-friendly, sustainable and cruelty-free products. So, for the next time you’re due for a touch-up, here are the best organic hair salons in Australia.
