Vegan. Naturally Derived. Gluten FREE. Plant Based. CØR.colour

Called CØR because colour its at the core of the Original & Mineral brand. At the very heart is the Ø a symbol of their unbreakable commitment to zero Ammonia, PPD and Resorcinol. Original & Mineral CØR.colour performs like ammonia colour, if not better.

For over two decades, Original & Mineral championed ammonia-free colour for salons dedicated to giving their clients and stylists the cleanest, healthiest colour experience.

Original & Mineral’s philosophy is “healthy hair begins when it’s free from stress”. Their CØR.colour Technology is a revolutionary hair system that helps dispel the myths surrounding ammonia free hair colour.  Clean, lustrous blondes, bright fashion shades and lasting, vibrant colours with complete coverage and without all the nasties commonly found in hair colour.

Original & Mineral is one of the first hair brands to produce professional grade ammonia, resorcinol and PPD free permanent hair color making it gentle on hair, scalp and hands. But what are these chemicals and how can they be harmful?

Original & Mineral has ZERØ Ammonia, ZERØ PPD and ZERØ Resorcinol.

PPD

Paraphenylenediamine is a chemical substance that is widely and traditionally used as a permanent hair dye.
People who are highly allergic to PPD have not been able to dye their hair with traditional hair color.
Known as a possible carcinogen.
Allergies to PPD are common and reactions include dermatitis, reddening and swelling of the scalp and face.
In some severe allergy cases the eyelids may completely close and can result in contact urticaria and anaphylaxis.

RESORCINOL

Used as a coloring agent and is also commonly found in topical acne treatments.
Suspected to be an endocrine toxicity hazard
Suspected to be a human immune system toxicant
Suspected to be toxic to wildlife and the environment

AMMONIA

A chemical that swells the hair cuticle so that colour can be absorbed all the way through the hair.
Unpleasant odour
Many people become allergic due to exposure and suffer from itchy scalps and watery/red eyes while getting their hair coloured.

Does natural hair colour last as long as the mainstream products on the market?

Most people assume that a natural-based dye would only be semi-permanent. This, in the case of Original & Mineral colour, is false, their mineral colour pigments penetrate the hair shaft as deeply as mainstream ammonia and dyes.

Long term benefits of natural colour:

Mainstream colour and the processes involved take a toll on your hair and at a certain point, it is no longer able to hold more colour, leaving you with few options. Naturally derived colour such as Original & Mineral is gentle on the hair and have added ingredients to protect the integrity of the hair. This means you are able to achieve the desired results with less damage to the hair.
