Coast hair prod­ucts spe­cially de­signed to pro­tect against harsh sun and surf

Noosa Life and Style - - BEAUTY & WELL-BEING -

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.
