Trichologist and Hairdresser Nigel Russel set out in 2006 with a goal in mind; to offer natural remedies and holistic origins for sustainably resourced hair care. In a market flooded with synthetic chemicals and irritants that negatively impact more sensitive clientele, he spearheaded the development of a health-conscious, ethical line of products that consider more than just scalp and hair disorders but how the symbiotic relationship of safe, organic ingredients affect inner beauty and spiritual well being.
Joined in 2015 by co-founders Nicky and Jodene, a powerful duo with experience in hair, beauty and business, they all set off together to combine plant-based scientific expertise and New Zealand manufacturing to pioneer innovating, safe and effective Trichology supported branding with corporate responsibility and ethical consciousness.
Holistic Hair are working towards 100% recycled plant-based bottles which can be recycled as part of a circular economy. The company use biodegradable and compostable materials where possible. Testing cosmetics on animals is illegal in NZ and Holistic Hair support cruelty-free beauty.
All ingredients are sustainable, volunteer tested, ethically supplied and ocean friendly. From Aloe Vera to Cedarwood, from Tea Tree to Vitamin E sourced from Soy Beans, all Holistic Hair ingredients are BPA free, formaldehyde free and don't contain synthetic fragrance, mineral oil, parabens, phthalates, sulphates, 4-dioxane, or petroleum derivatives.
Vegan and vegetarian friendly, the only exception is the Holistic Hair Pure Shampoo & Conditioner line which includes Manuka Honey. Most of their products are even nut-free, as only the Scalp Treatment Oil contains Sweet Almond. Are Holistic Hair products 100% natural? Each bottle lists a percentile of natural origin right on the front!🌱
