Veganism and Cruelty Free- What we do to help
Veganism is a way of living which excludes all forms of, and cruelty to, animals for food, clothing, beauty products and any other purposes. To find more information on Veganism itself, visit The Vegan Society. When it comes to living a healthy and natural lifestyle, what you put on your body is just as important to what you put into your body. Overtime what we put on our bodies will absorb into our skin, the rate at which this happens depends on the amount of chemicals in the product. If the products you are using , contain harmful ingredients such as harsh, toxic chemicals, colors, and fragrances those products will make their way into your body, bloodstream, and lymphatic system much quicker. Most of the mainstream products contain a cocktail of carcinogenic chemicals, allergens and irritants.
All the products we carry here at NJ's Organic Hair Salon are completely free of Ammonia ,Parabens, are non- toxic , certified organic products that work for you and the planet. Also, all of our products are cruelty free and majority are Vegan friendly! One of the main products we carry here called Natulique is based out of Denmark, where it is illegal to test cosmetics on animals. Therefor Natuique is a proud supporter of the Humane Society.
We do however have a few products silk protein and a few that contain Lanolin , which sadly are not vegan friendly. To find more information on exactly what makes a few of our products not vegan friendly visit our vegan information page.

Natulique (Cruelty free and Vegan) - Natulique is one of the main brands we carry here at the salon.

Here at NJ's Organic Hair Salon we do not believe in the suffering of animals for products that do not serve any long term or short term benefits to us. If you are unaware, testing on animals is a scientific experiment or a 'test' in which a live animals are forced to undergo something that is likely to cause them pain and suffering. Such as forced feeding, forced inhalation , behavioral experiments such as electric shock and forced swimming. Animals that are commonly used for these type of tests are usually Rats, Bunnies, Mice, Fish and in some countries Cats , Dogs , Mini Pigs and Chimpanzees.
Many of you know the typical smell of a hair salon the minute you step through the doors. No surprise as nearly 5000 chemicals are used in your average hair salon. Here at NJ's we wish to make your time at the salon extremely enjoyable. Using no chemicals and scenting the air with fresh aromatherapy, making your visit as natural as possible.
