Eco-Friendly Beauty Tips

Updated: Aug 27, 2020

Have your salon guests asked for more eco-friendly beauty options? Health and wellness go beyond eating healthier and exercising more. Today’s environmentally conscious consumer wants to make sure they’re not exposing their skin and hair to harmful substances. Salons that place an emphasis on offering safe and natural hair and skin treatments give their guests an added level of peace of mind and comfort. Check out these eco-friendly beauty tips your guests will love, and that help reduce your salon’s carbon footprint:

  • Plant-based products: Using plant-based styling products reduces chemicals in your salon, makes your guests’ hair healthier and stronger, and contributes to ethical consumption.

  • Ammonia-free hair coloring: Ammonia has been linked to many health issues, which is why more and more salons are choosing to use plant-based, organic hair coloring products.

  • Use less heat: Salons interested in reducing their energy consumption while offering eco-friendly beauty options for their clients use less heat on their guests’ hair.

  • Minimize single-use products: An increasing number of salons are offering shampoo and conditioner bars for their guests that let them refill their hair care products, which creates less waste and reduces plastic consumption.
