In recognition of World Cancer Day, we at Ippodaro Natural Salon want to extend our support to those who have triumphed over the challenges of cancer and are now navigating life in remission. Our commitment goes beyond the salon chair; it's about offering a holistic approach to hair care that aligns with your health-conscious journey. In this blog post, we'll delve into the importance of mindful product choices, with a spotlight on our clean and holistic haircare solutions, including the remarkable Hairprint hair color.

Holistic Hair Care for the Remission Journey:

Stepping into the world of remission brings a renewed focus on overall well-being. It's crucial to be mindful of what we put on our bodies, especially after a period of recovery. Our highly trained team at Ippodaro Natural Salon is here to guide you through this journey, offering a range of holistic and clean hair products tailored to keep you healthy and vibrant.

The Purity of Hairprint Hair Color:

At the heart of our commitment to clean beauty is Hairprint, the cleanest line on the shelf when it comes to hair color. Hairprint is more than just a coloring solution; it's a revolutionary approach that understands the importance of using non-toxic ingredients. Free from harmful chemicals such as ammonia, PPD, and resorcinol, Hairprint ensures that your hair not only looks beautiful but is also treated with utmost care and respect.

Understanding Hairprint:

Hairprint works by enhancing your natural hair color rather than covering it with artificial pigments. This innovative approach supports the health of your hair while providing a stunning, natural look. The ingredients are carefully selected to promote overall hair wellness, making it an ideal choice for those mindful of the products they use post-recovery.

Here is the list of Hairprint's food-grade ingredients:

  •     AQUA
    (purified and deionized water).
    is what we use at home for baking and cleaning.
    extract is made from velvet beans.
    is made from salt and limestone.
    are both food supplements used in multi-vitamins.
    is made of oxygen and water and naturally occurs in the hair follicle.*
    is an inert thickener used in shampoos and pharmaceutical products.

Here are the steps in what happens in salon: 

  1. Wash your hair twice with Hairprint chelating shampoo: An Effortless Yet Powerful Hair Cleansing Solution Tailored to Eliminate Residue from Modern Hair Care Products and Hard Water. 100% plant-based hair wash meticulously crafted from leaves, bark, seeds, roots, oils, petals, and fruits. This unique formula is low on suds, free from foam, and devoid of any overpowering scents. It's a paraben-free and sulfate-free hair wash that not only effectively cleanses but also addresses the challenges posed by mineral buildup.
  2. Towel dry the hair to get out all excess moisture that the hair has accumulated. 
  3. We evenly distribute the restore powder and restore liquid to cover all areas where gray hair is present.
  4. After applying the products, we cover your hair with a processing cap and seat you under a dryer for approximately 30 minutes.
  5. Next, we rinse off the product with lukewarm water (avoiding excessive heat). Following that, we gently towel-dry to remove excess moisture. The restore process is then repeated anywhere from 2 to 4 times, adjusting based on the natural darkness of your hair. For darker hair, additional rinsing and repeating may be required, while lighter browns can often achieve desired results in just one or up to two sessions.
  6. The concluding step involves the application of the dark, brown, or light brown complete powder and liquid. Allow it to sit for approximately 30 minutes before rinsing.

FOR OPTIMAL RESULTS: Hairprint's effectiveness relies on unobstructed access to the hair. Start by ensuring a deep cleanse using our Chelating Shampoo 3-4 times in the week preceding your Color Restorer application (as outlined below). This step is crucial to eliminate minerals, chlorine, calcification, silicone, and synthetic residues that accumulate on the hair over time.

Many hair care products, including some labeled "natural" or "organic," contain quaternary ammonium compounds (quats), proteins that create a coating on the hair's surface, as well as silicones. To achieve the best results, these ingredients must be removed and avoided.

In the 7 days leading up to the treatment, refrain from using the following:

  • Conventional shampoos, conditioners, and styling products.
  • Hair bar shampoos, Castile Soap, and 100% Pure shampoos.
  • Natural hair oils and masques.

Additionally, be mindful of any skincare products applied near the hairline or sideburns during this period. This preparation ensures Hairprint has the ideal conditions to deliver exceptional results.
