Hair colouring with Original & Mineral

Why does day&night hairdressers use hair colouring with Original & Mineral?

In 2014, day&night hairdressers switched to the hair colouring of the Original & Mineral brand.

The permanent hair colouring Mineral CCT is distinguished by the missing, aggressive ingredients resorcinol, PPD and ammonia. The colouring no longer has that strong ammonia scent that used to stay in the salon. Which is a lot nicer. The smell does not linger in your hair either. Instead, the colouring includes an active mineral complex of almond oil and sunflower seed wax. The paint does not stick to the scalp, so you will not get stains on your ears and forehead either.

There are a total of 100 permanent colours with which your hairstylist can even create more colours. It has good grey coverage and the color of your hair can be lightened up to five levels. Almost every colour is possible due to the countless combinations that the hairdressers can make. So it all depends on the creativity of your hairstylist. And day&night hairdressers they know how to work this wel! Do you prefer a semi-permanent hair colouring? That is also possible! O&M – short for Original & Mineral – also has the Liquid CCT colour line; a line with various hair dyes that do not leave permanent colour in the hair. The liquids can be used as a rinse immediately after a colour treatment. The liquid can also be used as an independent treatment, for example to refresh the colour.

Are you currently pregnant or is this planned, but do you think that dyeing your hair might be harmful to the baby? Don’t worry, mom! O&M is not harmful to the unborn baby. This is because there is no PPD in the products, which would be the biggest culprit. Animal lovers need not to fear either, because the products are not tested on animals.
