Read about our Holistic story and discover the Holistic benefits.
Holistic as a word means whole and all-inclusive, it refers to dealing with or treating the whole of something or someone and not just a part.
For Holistic Hair it is part of our brand name, defines our essence, underpins our brand values and forms a significant part of our story, which we would like to share.
Our founder, Nigel Russell, developed the first Holistic Hair® products in 2006. Working as a Hair Stylist in his own salon, Nigel became increasingly aware of the growing number of clients suffering from sensitivities to synthetic chemicals or general scalp and hair complaints. These clients were unable to find safe & effective solutions. With a strong belief in the power of natural remedies, particularly Aromatherapy, and a qualification in Trichology, Nigel set out to create a range of products that would provide the relief and results his clients were looking for.
Including the word Holistic in the brand name represents a core value and philosophy for the company which underpins every aspect of the branding and product development. Holistic Hair® believe in the holistic concept where effective hair care should consider the symbiotic relationship of both inner health to outer beauty.
In keeping with the holistic philosophy the brand has always focused on natural ingredients. It is a well-known fact, that around the world, people are becoming increasingly aware of the harm that certain ingredients pose to their health and are seeking the safest and most effective products. Plant ingredients are in turn receiving increased attention from research and science organisations, who are investigating the positive health benefits and providing evidence of this through scientific studies. Holistic Hair® give priority to plant-based ingredients, from renewable resources, that are effective in the solutions they provide and not harmful in terms of health and environmental safety.
Substantiation of product safety and claims is very much under scrutiny today. Holistic Hair® are a member of Cosmetics New Zealand, an organisation who expect members to uphold ethical standards & compliance with all relevant legislation. In creating specialist hair care products it is a requirement to ensure the safety of a product before it goes to market. Holistic Hair® have processes in place to ensure every ingredient is checked for safety against the databases of key regulatory organisations responsible for cosmetic ingredients internationally.
Today, a majority of consumers are both health & conservation conscious. In line with this all Holistic Hair® products
are created with the intention to improve wellbeing and all packaging is kept to a minimum, ensuring the use of sustainable materials, biodegradable papers & cardboards and recyclable BPA free plastics. Partners and suppliers to the brand must uphold Holistic Hair® values in fair trade, human rights, cruelty free and respect for the environment.
Our mission is to deliver the ultimate holistic hair care brand experience alongside premium, innovative, safe and effective hair care products.
