Choices for Healthy Pregnancies
By Mauricio Artunduga, Founder & Certified Organic Senior Stylist
As a hairstylist with over 15 years experience, I know how important it is for you to feel good about yourself while you're expecting. It’s been my mission since I started Mauricio Hair Salon 8 years ago, to build a Clean Beauty Movement that would help pregnant women and ensure the salon was pregnancy safe. I hand-choose the best non-toxic products in the market that not only give outstanding results, but also don’t create any skin discomfort to my clients or produce any fumes.
Our number one rule in the salon is to ensure that all the products we use are free of:
Ammonia (causes skin irritation and burning sensation in the eyes)
PPD’s (can trigger skin allergies) and
Resorcinols (can alter hormone function).
We want to give peace of mind to our pregnant guests by banning these ingredients in our services, while still providing amazing results.
At Mauricio Hair Studio, we have a range of color services available that won’t require touching your skin, such as highlights, single process in foiling technique, baby-lights, and Balayage. Also, for those who love getting smoothing hair treatments, we have an organic keratin treatment that doesn’t produce fumes and is perfect for fine to medium hair clients, pregnancy safe, breastfeeding clients, and for children. The results can last up to 3 months or longer and leave your hair in an overall healthier condition, all of this with zero formaldehyde’s.
Here are some of my recommendations to keep up with your hair color routines while pregnant:
A patch test at the salon or home for any allergic reactions.
If you’re not able to come into the salon and you do box color, always read the instructions and make sure it is free of ammonia, ppd’s and resorcinol.
Having a guilt free salon service while pregnant is possible with Clean Beauty!
Clean choices and clean living is the way to go. Switch to Clean Beauty for life.
