About seven years ago, Terri Domsky feared she had to choose between not dyeing her gray hair or dying.

Taking a slug of Benadryl was no longer enough to combat the itchy red scalp that followed a trip to the hair salon.

“One day,” recalled the 54-year-old Queen Village resident, “I left the hairdresser, and my hands and feet swelled. The base of my neck swelled. I had rashes. It scared the crap out of me. I went to a dermatologist who gave me steroids. Basically, he advised me that I had a PPD allergy and I could develop anaphylactic shock and die.”

How do you know your face shape: Oval, Round, Square, Oblong, Heart or Diamond?

Julie Featherman, juju salon & organics says…

“Whether I’m meeting with a client for the first time or working with an existing client who is thinking about making a change, facial shape consideration is as important as deciding on a length, color or style,” she explains. “I always say, ‘Look to the stars!’ Once the client’s face shape is determined, we’ll often look at pictures of celebrities with the same face shape. For example, if you Google, ‘What celebrity has a diamond shaped face,’ up pops Keira Knightley. Heart shaped? Reese Witherspoon and Taylor Swift. It’s so fun and inspiring! From there, we can begin to sift through different celebrity looks and make decisions.”

We were recently invited to JuJu Organics salon.  To be honest, I’d never heard of an organic salon and even though it’s 30 minutes from our house, we decided to check it out! JuJu Organics is tucked along a quiet street in Philadelphia, but inside the atmosphere is nothing shy of a friendly neighborhood party.  There was a chalkboard sidewalk sign outside the store, where one side said Never Grow Up and the other side said Fall in Love with yourself!  I absolutely loved the positive affirmations of both.

“At the forefront of all things organic, eco-driven and sustainable in the beauty industry is Julie Ebner, founding owner of juju organics, Philadelphia’s first wholly organic and non-toxic hair salon and day spa. Initially I contacted Julie in an effort to learn more about their range of treatments and products. However, along the way I ended up learning a great deal more from an inspiring woman with the vision to minimise environmental hazards, sustain an eco-driven business, offer safe yet effective alternatives to employees and clients in a toxin-laden industry … I have learnt a lot more than expected and found out there is definitely more to organic and holistic driven beauty than meets the eye.”

“When you spend a bit more for an experienced stylist, you are dealing with an expert who knows how to achieve this.” And once you find someone you like, keep the relationship going. “Get into the stylist’s chair every eight to ten weeks,” recommends Julie Ebner, owner of juju Salon and Organics in Philadelphia. “Regular trims are essential for keeping hair healthy and removing split ends.”

Use the right products. A good cut is a great start, but you have to follow up at home by using the right products to care for and style your hair. Don’t use a product just because the woman in the ad looks amazing or because your friend—who might have totally different hair—loves it. “Ask your stylist for advice and try the styling products she uses on you at the salon,” suggests Ebner.
