One local salon owner launched her own line of natural, organic and vegan hair care. Read on for all the Good Hair Day details.
If you work so hard to put natural and organic foods in your body every day, shouldn’t you do the same for your hair?
That’s why Cara D’Ambrosio created her all natural, 100% vegan, organic hair care product line — free of parabens, preservatives, chemicals, sulfates, and gluten — only available at Me Salon Studios.
According to D’Ambrosio, the line has been tested to substantially improve shine, humidity resistance hold, moisture retention for smoothness, manageability and touch-ability. These highly concentrated formulas also put less strain on the environment from their natural product base, as well as amounts needed to generate lather and conditioning. All finishing products also contain sunscreen to further minimize hair damage from sun and heat.
D’Ambrosio brings a bloodline of hair care, and decades of experience into developing this line. In 1992, she began working at her father Pete’s hair salon. Learning all about the hair industry and how to make the perfect cut and color, D’Ambrosio fell in love with the craft, and later took over her father’s salon in 2007.
Me Salon has since been recognized as one of the “World’s Best Salons” by Intercoiffure among other awards. To achieve this level of service, D’Ambrosio travels around the world learning new techniques, studying styling trends, and researching the best products.
With those demands, in addition to becoming a mom of twins 20 months ago, D’Ambrosio decided to increase efficiency by moving her business to a Salon Loft space, located at 9285 Governers Way.
“[It] was a quality of life decision. I’m passionate about hair dressing. Running a large salon with several employees meant I spent a large portion of my time on HR, accounting, and insurance,” D’Ambrosio explains. “I wanted to get back to the ‘roots’ of my artistry and spend my work time in the salon, not in my office. Before children, a 60 hour work week was a breeze. I’m an Italian American and family is really important to me. So, I downsized my business, I’m doing what I love and I have more time with my twins. Simple as that.”
