Restores your hair to its natural color
TO ENSURE OPTIMAL OUTCOME:
Hairprint works when it has unobstructed access to the hair. To learn more about ingredients that may negatively impact your treatment please read our article on Residue-free Hair.
To help remove synthetic residues, oils and hard water minerals please use our Chelating Shampoo leading up to your Hairprint True Color Restorer Treatment. The Chelating Shampoo will act as a clarifying shampoo and will also remove calcification, lime, iron and other minerals that adhere to the cuticle of the hair and follicles of the scalp.
Most commercial and quite a few “natural” hair care products contain quaternary ammonium compounds (quats)*, proteins, and/or silicones, and some shampoos contain soap that can leave a residual build up on the hair. We created a complete line of shampoos and conditioners to remove the buildup and gunk, and ensure healthy, soft, clean hair and optimal results from Hairprint.
We created our Amla, Bamboo, and Kelp shampoos and conditioners for regular use. They are for both color-treated and virgin hair. Each formula is free of synthetic residues. They rinse away leaving healthy, soft, clean hair.
*What are quats? These are bromine or chlorine salts of ammonia that act as anti-static agents, disinfectants, and algaecides. Many natural hair care companies justify quats because they may be made from rapeseed or turnip oil. Quats can defrizz the hair and make it feel softer. However, it is the MSG of hair care: addictive and unnecessary. Quats are toxic to the fish that end up swimming in them when you wash it down the drain. What something is made from does not matter. What it ends up as does matter. Quats coat the hair and may gum up the follicle. They include cetrimonium chloride, behentrimonium chloride, and guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride. Healthy hair does not need synthetics. What is toxic to fish is not good for you either.
BEFORE YOU BUY
Here is the list of Hairprint's food-grade ingredients:
1. Aqua (purified and deionized water).
2. Bicarbonate of soda is what we use at home for baking and cleaning.
3. Mucuna pruriens extract is made from velvet beans.
4. Sodium carbonate is made from salt and limestone.
5. Ferrous and manganese gluconate are both food supplements used in multi-vitamins.
6. Hydrogen peroxide is made of oxygen and water and naturally occurs in the hair follicle.*
7. Diatomaceous earth is a naturally occurring sedimentary rock made from ancient deposits of hard-shelled algae.
8. Carbomer is an inert thickener used in shampoos and pharmaceutical products.
Prepare Ingredients: Aqua, lauryl glucosides, sodium cocoamphoacetate, sodium carbonate, sodium citrate, hydroxypropyl methylcellulose, phenethyl alcohol.
*The concentrations of hydrogen peroxide we use are between 1% and 1.5%, a fraction of what one gets in drugstore peroxide. In conventional hair dyes, peroxide is used to break open the hair, and can be up to a 12-15% concentration. When Hairprint is applied to your hair, the peroxide is gone in two minutes.
The purpose of a Transition is to protect chemically treated hair— whether highlighted, bleached or dyed—from getting into contact with Hairprint. We want to avoid treating it because chemically treated hair is damaged. The internal genetic template inside the cortex, what we call your hairprint, is missing due to the impact of the chemicals. Hairprint infuses the hair with its original pigment, eumelanin. The hair arranges the pigment using this internal structure. That structure determines how light refracts, and the way light refracts determines how we see color. Damaged hair cannot do this. When Hairprint is applied to damaged hair, your hair may turn darker or you may experience more dryness or brittleness due to pre-existing damage.
We recommend starting the transition when you have at least 1-2” of new growth that has not been dyed/chemically treated.Directions: After thoroughly washing with the Pretreatment, cover all of the dyed/ chemically treated/damaged hair with a coating that will not come off during the application. We highly recommend shea butter. Do not use oils.
