If you read my last newsletter (subscribe here), you’ll already know I’ve invested in a fabulous range of cruelty free hair products for the salon. With so many vegetarians and vegans in Bristol, I thought it was only right. Besides, I’m an animal lover myself and who doesn’t want to be cruelty free wherever possible anyway?!

Thanks to the fabulous Maria Nila range, I can now offer vegan shampoo and conditioners for different hair types. Whether you’ve got a sensitive scalp, hair that lacks volume, coloured hair or hair in need of repair, I’ll have the perfect cruelty free hair product for you.

Maria Nila products are Sulphate and Paraben free, but what does that mean anyway?

Parabens are chemicals that have been used since the 1950s to prevent bacteria and act as a preservative in numerous beauty products. Sulfates are cleansing and foaming agents found in things like toothpaste, shampoo and body washes, amongst other things. If you haven’t heard of them before, don’t panic! If you have sensitive skin, I would highly recommend looking into using paraben and sulphate free products. It could make all the difference.

Maria Nila also have a great range of natural temporary hair colours. Lasting 4 – 10 washes, they’re perfect for use inbetween appointments when you want to refresh and moisturise your hair. The colours of the rainbow are also available for those of you who love things bright and vibrant! If you want to keep your blonde locks clean and bright, the Silver range is hugely popular for hair that tends to go brassy.

Many people are more conscious of what they put in and on their bodies these days. That’s why I’m opening the salon door to this range and those of you who really care about using cruelty free hair products. If they’re popular, I’ll also look into expanding the salon’s cruelty free range into hair colour. I won’t get rid of my current range, but I’ll be able to offer my services to even more people.

I can’t wait to introduce you this fab new range.

See you in the salon!
