There is a reason why you're not supposed to color your hair while pregnant - the chemicals they use are seriously toxic and absorbed right into your scalp. Not to mention all the wildly strong fumes you inhale.
I knew I didn't want to go to an Aveda salon - have heard negative reviews about their hair color. Plus they're what I consider to be a "greenwashing" company - that means they pretend to be all natural but it's just a marketing gimmick. Henna is probably the most natural option out there, but that wasn't the look I was going for. I had driven by Follicle Salon on East Blvd. in Charlotte a zillion times and was excited to learn about their Keune So Pure line. The ingredients are 100% plant based - a combo of "over 30 rich plant extracts and essential oils that are harvested using biological agriculture that sustains the health of our ecosystem and the quality of the oils." One of the key ingredients is PhytoKeratin which rebuilds the natural hair structure from within and protects during the color treatment. most lines Keune is ammonia and paraben free. Instead of inhaling fumes that burn your nostrils you experience aromatherapy - it smells so good!!

I had all over color and balayage highlights - I'm thrilled and a month later it still looks great! I also had 11 inches cut off at this appointment which I donated to Locks of Love. This has been on my bucket list for years and I hope my hair brings a little happiness and smile to a child fighting cancer.
