GO ORGANIC WITH MINT
Coast hair products specially designed to protect against harsh sun and surf
ANEW, locally produced organic range of hair products has hit the shelves of Noosa salon Mint Hair this week, and they are produced right here on the Sunshine Coast.
Mint Hair co-owner Shannon Lloyd said it was a gap in the market that she and co-owner Marie Lourens had been thinking about for some time.
“We had been looking for the perfect products for years – something that would protect the hair of our clients in the sun and saltwater lifestyle we enjoy in Queensland.
“It needed to be sulphate and paraben-free, and our clients are looking for something that is 100 per cent certified organic, vegan and cruelty-free.”
But it was difficult to find something that ticked all the boxes and was made in Australia.
So Marie and Shannon took things into their own hands and teamed up with a Coolum producer to create organic hair products.
The local producer is making small batches of a range of Mint Hair products that will be sold exclusively in the salon.
“We’ve been incredibly involved in the process every step of the way,” Mint co-owner Shannon Lloyd said.
“Our clients are very conscious of the ingredients they use on their hair and skin, and taking control of the production has given us the opportunity to develop a range that is free from chemicals like sulphates, which can damage the structure of the hair.
“As hairdressers, we know how important it is to use products that will really nourish and protect hair, so we’ve sourced all-natural ingredients for our shampoos, conditioners and masks.”
Marie and Shannon have used their combined decades of skill and experience as award-winning colourists and stylists to develop products they will use in the salon and have available for retail sale.
“Because they’re being produced locally, we can offer these salon-quality products at a price that is affordable for our clients.” Ms Lloyd said.
