O&M Limited Edition Summer Detangle Packs

Original & Mineral is an Australian salon professional brand founded by Jose Bryce Smith, who opened the first ammonia-free salon in Australia 20 years ago with her then partner, a hairdresser who suffered with contact dermatitis. Bringing nature and luxury together in a line of hair colour, care and styling products that are safe, effective and beautiful to use, these limited edition packs have been curated for summer hair woes, offering a full size shampoo and conditioner duo and a complimentary detangling brush worth £24.50.

Some of the “everyday” chemicals you won’t find in O&M…

PHTHALATES

Cling to the hair to give it fragrance and also gives product such as gels more staying power. Exposure to phthalates in pregnant women can cause harm during critical periods of a child’s development.

SULFATES

Are used to clean the hair of its natural oils leaving the hair feeling dry and looking matte. Denatures skin proteins and largely affects people with contact dermatitis.

PARABENS

Have antifungal and antibacterial properties that act as a preservative for maintaining freshness and longer product shelf life. One of the leading chemicals that can cause skin irritation and contact dermatitis.

PROPYLENE GLYCOL

Used to bind many haircare products together and retain moisture content not only on the hair but also in packaging. Propylene glycol has been linked to headaches, backaches and kidney problems.

M.I. T.

Methylisothiazolinone prevents bacteria. Due to the high exposure to the scalp through haircare, MIT in hair products greatly damages skin cells, causing itching, flaking and soreness on the scalp.

TRICLOSAN

Another chemical used to kill bacteria on the hair. Triclosan’s manufacturing process can also create dioxin, a powerful hormone disrupter that can have long term health effects.
