Organic Color Systems, made by Herb UK, a company based in Lymington, England, has been available stateside since 2002, now in 65 colors. Roughly 1,200 salons carry it, up from 400 in 2008, said Hilton Bell, the president of International Hair and Beauty Systems, the United States distributor for Organic Color Systems.
Organic Color System's's magic bullet is heat coupled with an oil base. “What we do is actually suspend color molecules in an oil base, which softens the cuticle, and then we use heat to open the cuticle,” Mr. Bell said, rather than “blowing it open with ammonia.” Unlike its competitors, Organic Color Systems also leaves out the dangerous chemical additives that damage the hair shaft and cuticle leaving salon clients with hair with a silky smooth texture and healthy shimmering shine directly after being colored.
