About 6 years ago I started having phantom rashes and redness on my face, arms and thighs. My scalp burned, itched and it felt like I had cuts on the back of my scalp. I had lost almost 50% of my hair. I had been using an all natural hair color for about 15 years. The skin tests did not create a rash.
After a long road to diagnosis, I made a decision not to use any steroids to try to clear up the rash and redness. I did a lot of research and took an organic, holistic approach to healing. Eliminated night shade vegetables and had a 50% improvement. As my redness cleared, I noticed my scalp was discolored, the natural hair color was being absorbed into my scalp!
Panic! I had to color my hair. I was not ready to go "au naturelle grey" Fortunately I spotted an article on Organic Colour Systems in a magazine. Googled it, and Meadow Street Salon pops up! Lisa of Meadow Street Salon answered my email promptly and I made an appointment for a cut and color, explaining my history. The beginning of a wonderful journey!
Lisa listened carefully to my concerns and was confident that Organic Colour Systems would be a safe option for me. We began with a color a little lighter than my natural color. I loved the gorgeous color, the gleaming, shimmering shine and silken texture of my hair! The condition of my hair better than the condition before coloring! After several colorings I noticed the discoloration of my scalp completely gone. Next I noticed the burning and itching diminishing considerably, down to one small area. And now that area has disappeared as well. I was no longer losing hair. We have moved to a deeper brown; it is a gorgeous color as well. The color is lustrous and does not dull or fade as it grows out.
Then, combine this story with the most caring, knowledgeable, genius of a stylist and I hit the jackpot! I am just not good with styling my hair. Lisa cut my hair when it was at its thinnest and I was able to style it myself and look fabulous! My cuts are always so becoming and easy for me to style! And more! Lisa is the kindest, most genuine and dedicated salon owner I have ever met. She wants to let women know there are beautiful, safe options to hair color and style. Lisa believes in Organic Colour Systems and safe, natural hair care products. I am so fortunate to have met Lisa!
I am one of those women that has a very sensitive scalp. When I colored my hair, my scalp would burn terribly and at times even blister. I found out about Organic Colour Systems through my stylist and I am very happy I did. It allowed me to color my hair again with no adverse effects to my scalp, and produces great results. The color is beautiful and my hair has gotten a lot healthier. Even if I could, I would not go back to regular chemical hair color. I would still keep using the Organic Colour Systems product.
A very satisfied client,
I recently had a wonderful experience at Meadow St. Salon. I am 37 years old and have been dyeing my hair elsewhere with permanent color to cover grey since I was 30. Over the past 6-7 months I began to notice a progressive negative reaction to the hair dye....itching, burning, tingling when it was applied and being processed. I also began to notice my hair becoming more dry with a lot of breakage when I don't even use hair products or blow dry/ flat iron my hair. It was so bad that I was fearful I would not be able to dye my hair again. I did some research on the internet about the option of using Organic Hair Colour Systems, which is vegan, and free of other harmful chemicals (ammonia, paraben, sulfate, and formaldehyde). I looked up salons that use this product and was lead to Lisa at Meadow Street Salon. Lisa is wonderful. She listened and understood the issues I was having and proved to be a very knowledgeable and talented hairstylist. There was no smell to the organic hair dye, it covered all of my grey WITHOUT any adverse reactions that I had been experiencing, and it brought a beautiful shine and softness to my hair that I hadn't felt in a long time. I am so pleased with the service and product I will use nothing else from now on. I really wish I had learned Organic Colour Systems was an option years ago as it is
much safer/healthier with beautiful results. I highly recommend Lisa at Meadow Street Salon and the use of Organic Hair Colour Systems.
