At Bethpage Salon, Organic Goes Beyond Color

The welcome trend toward nontoxic, plant-based salon products extends well beyond naturally-derived hair colors. Monica Martelo, owner of the Organic Color Bar, in Bethpage, says the growth in high-quality organic haircare lines allows her to offer a broad range of services focused on hair and scalp wellness.

To add shine, minimize unwanted tones or blend gray, for example, she recommends a 30-minute hair gloss treatment, using the organic H-Nectar product line. It gives hair a healthier appearance, adding volume and elasticity while also making it silky and well-groomed.

The salon also offers organic restoration treatments to repair damaged hair, Martelo says. “Most damage happens when the hair is losing its essential components: protein, water, minerals, and lipids. Oway Rebuilding Treatment provides long-lasting results by rebuilding the hair from the inside out.”

The “scalp facials” at Organic Color Bar include customized treatments for detoxification, hair loss, anti-aging, and oily scalp. “To achieve strong, healthy hair, we must tend to where it grows,” Martelo says. “When the scalp environment is imbalanced, issues such as hair loss, dandruff and dermatitis can cause unnecessary physical and mental stress.”
