      Organic Hair Color in Denver, Colorado

      At Denver’s highest rated 5-star organic hair salon and beauty shop we are the only salon team in Colorado to offer Organic Colour Systems! OCS is the only professional color line in the world that is 100% ammonia free.

      Healthy hair:
      The Natural Alternative
      Most hair colour products use harsh chemicals like ammonia that damage hair in the colouring process, stripping hair’s natural health and shine.

      Organic Colour Systems is different. We’re kind to hair and it shows.

      By using more certified organic ingredients and fewer chemicals than anyone else we’ve created an effective way to colour hair as naturally as possible.

      With Outstanding Results
      And because hair responds better to natural ingredients our products give outstanding results.

      Our unique approach is gentler on hair and locks in colour, moisture and goodness to every strand.

      So hair looks naturally healthier and glossier with radiant colour.

      Made in Britain with TLC
      (Tender Loving Colour)
      Combining the best of British know-how and natural ingredients we create Tender Loving Colour with absolutely no ammonia, resorcinol or parabens.

      We make our beautiful hair products in the heart of the New Forest in Hampshire using lots of lovely natural, organic ingredients.

      With Organic Colour Systems hair is naturally healthier.

      Why Organic Colour Systems?

      The system:
      “Organic Colour Systems is more than outstanding products – it’s a system of total hair care. Used together, its ranges deliver outstanding results with coloured hair.

      Every product in every range is specially formulated to work together for naturally healthier hair and longer-lasting colour.

      It works because it’s gentle and
      non-damaging

      The system is designed to treat coloured hair gently at every stage of every treatment from shampooing to styling.

      Most other hair care products use chemicals that strip hair of colour and health as they style, perm and straighten.

      Organic Colour Systems takes a different approach. With Organic Colour Systems every product in every range contains the minimum of chemicals and the maximum of certified organic ingredients.

      And because all of the OCS products are gentle and non-damaging to hair, hair looks healthier and colour stays locked in. Plus, all of the products can safely be used together.

      The care range and colour range
      work together
      The Organic Colour Systems care range and colour range work together for outstanding results.

      Our uniquely natural shampoos and reconstructors soften the hair before colouring and gently open up the outer layer (cuticle) so colour is easily absorbed.

      Then our nourishing conditioners close the cuticle completely, and restore hair to its natural pH value. That means colour stays locked in and hair looks smooth and shiny.

      Our care range products also contain natural UV light filters to protect hair and keep colour longer-lasting.

      Nourishes, protects and strengthens coloured hair
      All our products are packed with natural moisturisers and proteins that nourish, protect and strengthen coloured hair during every process from shampooing to straightening. So hair looks healthier than ever.

      Even damaged hair can safely be coloured and styled with Organic Colour Systems. Our uniquely nourishing and strengthening formulations work together across all ranges to repair damaged hair in a short time.

      With our flexible system, hair in any condition can be successfully coloured, styled, straightened or permed. And these processes can be done one after the other without causing any damage to the hair.

      Naturally styled, permed and
      straightened hair
      Our control range is rich in natural conditioners that add extra body, hold and shine, and protect hair during styling. It doesn’t matter how often hair is styled, it won’t get damaged.

      Our straightening system uses a natural product, keratin, to straighten and condition hair at the same time. And our perm system is uniquely gentle and natural for natural, healthy looking curls.

      Thanks to our unique system, all our products are safe to use on coloured hair and work together to create long-lasting colour and healthy hair.”

        Top 5 reasons My Hair Trip Organic Salon Denver is Top-rated.

        Why does My Hair Trip Salon in the Denver Arts District have more 5-star reviews than any other organic or eco-friendly salon in the state? Well, there are a lot of variables to consider when examining this question. We do have some ideas…

        Here are the top 5 reasons why My Hair Trip Salon Denver has more 5-star ratings across Google, Yelp, Bing, Facebook, Yahoo, and Vagaro than any other organic or eco-friendly salon in the state.

        #5. My Hair Trip Salon is designed unlike any other salon open today. Typically, salons today are designed one of two ways. There is the traditional design, which is rows of chairs and mirrors next to each other or on top of each other throughout an open space or a space with multiple rooms. The other design, a newer fad in the last decade, is suites. In this design the building is large and is filled with small rooms with either one or two chairs in the room with the mirrors and shelves and shampoo bowl all packed into each little suite.
        – At My Hair Trip they took the good parts of each of these designs and created a new unique design. Instead of the traditional rows of chairs, My Hair Trip has a row of suites, and instead of closing the suite off, each of the suites is open to the main room. This way they have achieved the intimacy a suite provides for stylists and clients while still being part of the salon space with the other stylists and clients sharing the music and atmosphere and the energy together.

        #4. My Hair Trip the Organic Salon is the only salon with a team of stylists that offers Organic Colour Systems in Denver, CO. Now this is a big deal because OCS is the only color line on the market that is 100% ammonia-free. It is the most effective, organic, non-gmo, vegan, ammonia-free, cruelty-free, sulfate-free professional color line on planet earth. There are several independent stylists in Colorado who use OCS, they either rent chairs in salons or rent suites that they’ve named like salons, but there is only one place where you have a whole team using OCS and serving you together, and thats at My Hair Trip the #1 Organic Salon in Denver. One day all color lines will look and work like OCS and there are even salons and stylists in Denver who have been claiming that their color lines are ammonia free or carry very little ammonia, but here’s the deal y’all. There is only one ammonia-free organic professional color line in the world and there is only one salon team in Colorado who works with it.

        #3. My Hair Trip Salon in Denver, Colorado is different than most other salons and stands out from its competition in Denver for several reasons, one of the biggest of those being that My Hair Trip is a team-based salon. The team at My Hair Trip works on salary rather than commission or booth-rent. This enables the team at My Hair Trip to serve the salon’s clients together, rather than competing for clients against each other. The team all works the same schedule too, its the hours the salon is open. Everyone on the team starts at the same time, works the same days and finishes together too. All of the stylists also offer services off of the same menu with the same prices so it doesn’t matter who a client sees. Clients don’t have to be locked into one stylist,its easy for them to see multiple team members with confidence that they are going to get the same My Hair Trip service no matter who they see. It becomes more about when is it best for the client to come in and not when can the stylist fit them into their schedule. The difference for a client being served by a whole team rather than one person or one or two people is amazing and clients of My Hair Trip go online to leave reviews and talk about it everyday. My Hair Trip holds team meetings at the beginning of every month and team members all contribute to what the culture of the business is and what each team member’s role is in that culture. Everyone on the team at My Hair Trip is personally invested in the core values of the salon and in its mission and vision.

        #2. My Hair Trip Salon, The #1 Organic salon in Colorado has built its team with top talent. One of the salon’s mottos is “any cut, any color, anytime.” To be a stylist at My Hair Trip this is the attitude that you have to have and you need the skills and the talent to be able to achieve this as well. My Hair Trip’s team of stylists are all experienced, they are extremely creative, they are highly skilled, very professional and most of all each member of the team at My Hair Trip has an intrinsic quality of genuinly caring for other people. When these character traits are all brought together and nutured in a team, thats when the magic happens and thats when great hair happens.

        #1. The #1 reason that My Hair Trip Salon has more 5-star reviews than any other organic or eco-friendly salon in Colorado is because of the way everyone on their team listens. That’s it. That’s the secret to this fast-growing, bustling little salon’s success. The team at My Hair Trip takes listening to another level. They listen to clients, customers and to each other in a different way. When true caring comes into the picture real listening happens and its effects can be felt in two seconds. This is how the team at My Hair Trip is able to again and again get its clients what they are asking for, because they are listening in a way that enables them to really hear what is being said to them.

        So that’s it. The top five reasons My Hair Trip Organic Salon and Gallery has more 5-star reviews than any organic or eco friendly beauty shop in the state. This list could have been a top 20 for sure but if this top 5 isnt enough to get you in the door at My Hair Trip, the top 20 wouldn’t be either. Check them out and see for yourself.

          Green Circle Salons Article: “Ask Your Salon To Do This”

          Ask your Hair Salon to do This.

          Via Catherine Monkman

          “This is a bag of leftover hair dye from about a week’s worth of appointments from my favorite hair salon.

          Gross huh?

          “What’s even grosser, though, is that this bag of harsh chemicals is what would normally go down the drain at a typical salon each week.

          I was browsing my Facebook feed and noticed a “recommended for you” post from a hair salon page that I’d liked. I don’t often see posts from many pages I follow, thanks to Facebook’s recent changes so it caught my eye and I clicked.

          Nestled in among deals and updates from the salon was a post about Green Circle Salons.

          Ooh, what is this?

          Of course, being an editor for a mindful journal who loves cool eco stuff, I was immediately intrigued and did a bit of googling. Green Circle Salons essentially helps salons recycle and re-purpose materials that they normally aren’t able to—like hair and tin foil used for hair dyeing—so that less waste is sent to landfills and fewer chemicals enter our waterways. The more I learned, the more I was impressed that my go-to hair place was also into being eco-conscious. Guilt-free hair-dos? Hell yeah, bring it on!

          A couple of interesting facts that caught my eye while reading through the literature Green Circle Salons provided:

          “The population of New York City grows enough hair annually to clean up 12,609,000 liters of oil, enough to have cleaned up the entire Exxon Valdez spill.”

          “Toronto Salons waste enough aluminum foil annually to manufacture 7,320 bicycle frames. If 7,320 more Torontonians biked to work, we would reduce carbon dioxide output by 43,920 tons.”

          One of the easiest, laziest things we can do for our planet is vote with our dollars.

          I already love this salon because of my experiences there, but now I’ll also keep coming back because they’re putting in more effort to do what’s right for the environment.

          When I contacted my salon to ask about their decision to join, the salon’s manager Lindsey explained that while they had been doing some recycling, it didn’t seem like enough. So when they were given some information from their beauty supplier about Green Circle Salons, they jumped on it. “A rep from the company came from Calgary to present more…and we were automatically hooked on the idea and wanted to implement it in our salon.” Lindsey also mentioned that so far, clients have been supportive—instead of their yearly price increase, the salon asks for a small $1 to $2.00 fee to support the initiative.

          Whether we’re buying food, stuff for our homes, makeup, clothing, getting our hair done, traveling, buying coffee—there is always a way to vote: by what we’re choosing to pay for, and how we consume it.

          The more we ask for green choices, and the more we’re willing to pay for them, the more these options are made available by businesses. Therefore, any time we have the option to choose a more mindful way to be in this world, we need to take advantage of it.

          I get it: changing our habits is hard. It takes practice and effort, and sometimes we’d rather just stick to our comfortable, easy ways of doing things. So, when businesses make it practically brainless for us to live greener, it’s on us to support them and help move the world forward—inch by inch.”

          from My Hair Trip Organic Salon Denver: We found this amazing article about Green Circle Salons at https://www.elephantjournal.com/2016/07/ask-your-hair-salon-to-do-this/ and just loved it! We, ourselves are proud to be one of the very first salons in Colorado to become a Green Circle Salon. This is truly what we are all about! We were super crazy about how we disposed of our waste before, but now with our partnership with Green Circle its so easy to recycle and responsibly dispose of all of our salon waste including our color tubes, our foils, old product, bottles, hair and even our used tools! We can’t get over the awesomeness!

            Top Ten Foods for Healthy Hair

            The Nutrients Your Hair Needs

            Written or reviewed by a board-certified physician

            Healthy hair relies on certain essential nutrients, including protein, omega-3 fatty acids, iron, zinc, calcium, biotin and vitamins A, C, E and D. Eating a healthy balanced diet should provide you with all these nutrients, especially if you include these top ten foods for healthy hair.

            Salmon and tuna are rich in protein, omega-3 fatty acids, and vitamin D, but even though they’re rich in omega-3 fats they’re not high in total fats or calories. Add salmon or tuna to a fresh green salad or enjoy them as sushi. Canned tuna and salmon can be kept on hand and used in a number of recipes. Herring, sardines and trout are also rich in omega-3s.

            Spinach, Swiss chard and kale are excellent sources of vitamin A, iron, calcium and vitamin C. They’re also low in calories so they’ll also help you keep a trim waistline. Use raw green as a base for your salads or sauté them with a little olive oil and garlic and serve as a healthy side.

            Almonds, pecans and walnuts are rich in plant proteins, biotin, minerals and vitamin E. Walnuts are also a good source of omega-3 fatty acids. Eat raw walnuts as a snack or top your salads with toasted pecans. Sprinkle some almonds on green beans or other cooked veggies.

            Sweet potatoes and yams are packed with vitamin A, plus they contain vitamin C, iron and calcium. Serve whipped sweet potatoes as a tasty side dish or bake sweet potatoes and top them with a little molasses, which adds even more calcium.

            Eggs are an excellent source of protein and biotin, and they contain vitamins A and E iron and calcium. Eggs produced by hens fed special diets, called ‘omega eggs’ are also good sources of omega-3 fatty acids.

            Dry beans, lentils and soy are rich in protein, zinc, iron and biotin. Baked beans can be used as a topping for baked white or sweet potatoes. Or serve lentil soup with a fresh green salad.

            Oysters are extremely high in zinc plus they’re a rich source of protein. Enjoy raw oysters on the half shell, prepared as Oysters Rockefeller, or make oyster stew for dinner.

            Dairy products are high in protein, vitamin D and calcium. Go with low or non-fat milk and cheese to cut back on some of the calories. Serve Greek yogurt with honey, berries and nuts for a delicious breakfast or healthy dessert. Alternatively, milk made from almonds, soy or rice is also a good choice.

            Red bell peppers are high in vitamins A and C, plus they’re super low in calories. Top a salad with raw red pepper slices. Roast them with an assortment of veggies or add them to a stir-fry.

            Beef is an excellent source of protein and zinc. It can be high in fats and calories, so choose a leaner cut like a filet mignon. Grass-fed beef has a better fatty acid profile. Add thin slices of steak to a salad or use lean cuts of beef in a stir-fry.
