This month, MODERN Salon talks to Hilton Bell, president of International Hair and Beauty Systems, about the Organic Color Systems color line:
Modern Salon: Describe Organic Color Systems. Hilton Bell: Organic Color Systems eliminates the use of ammonia in the color formula. By suspending the color molecules in an oil/moisturizing base, we soften the cuticle and open it with gentle heat rather than with ammonia.
Modern Salon: What makes Organic Color Systems different from other brands or beauty products? Hilton Bell: OCS will not grab or go drab on the ends and has the ability to achieve even color from roots to ends. OCS will not band due to over-lapping. You also can go from blonde to brown without the need for fillers.
Modern Salon: How do you help hairdressers use these beauty products? Hilton Bell: We provide a training DVD and a technical manual. Our Technical Advisors follow up with salons and are available five days a week for salon support. We routinely send out technical tips, as well as formulas to our salons. We also hold advanced color classes on a regular basis.
Modern Salon: What are some of the key ingredients in Organic Color Systems? Hilton Bell: Four key ingredients are important to the scalp and hair: Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein, vitamin E, Orange Extract and vitamin C.
