History of the Hair Salon Sustainability Movement
More recently, the public and the beauty industry have become increasingly concerned with environmental issues. Thanks to their growing awareness of problems like microplastic pollution, single-use plastics, and energy and water wastage, both major manufacturers and small salons are looking for ways to shrink their carbon footprint.
Eco-friendly hair salons are also choosing sustainable hair products that use recycled or biodegradable packaging, and also don’t include harmful microbeads. They may also offer organic products for more natural styles, highlights, and updos. Meanwhile, special showerheads can save water without decreasing the pressure during your wash and rinse, and well-designed color mixing bowls and color management systems allow them to use less dye, so there’s less waste afterward.
