Some people may have wondered why it smells so strong in most hair salons. Some people’s scalps may have burned and their eyes may have teared up while their color was processing. The U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration, the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry, and the Food and Drug Administration have all issued reports on the hazards of toxic substances used in hair services and products. Some side effects are ALS (amyotrophic lateral sclerosis) risk, nervous system complications, chest pain, shortness of breath, nose and throat irritation, cancer, increased risk of asthma and allergies, itchy or raw skin, and hair loss.
Fos Living Organic Hair Salon is committed to using alternative methods to hair and scalp services that are safer for their clients and employees. They have banned Brazilian blowouts and Japanese straighteners from the salon because they contain formaldehyde, ammonia, carcinogens and other harmful ingredients. Fos Living’s color products are imported from companies around the world that firmly believe in the concept of clean beauty. These efforts to stay away from harmful chemicals will prevent long-term complications with health and hair.
It’s Fos Living’s mission to provide a safe, clean air environment for everyone. Alternative approaches to beauty, your health, and eco-friendliness are the most important things to the salon. Whether you’re younger, older, male, female, sensitive or not, they will work with your hair and scalp in the safest ways possible. Making you happy, keeping you safe from harmful ingredients, and meeting great people along the way is what they’re all about!
