Exceptional hair. No compromises. These aren’t just words for Sarah and Lisa, the co-owners at Organika Hair.
Swapping sulphate, paraben, gluten, chloride and phthalate for only natural and organic products, Organika Hair is like the Birkenstock wearing, gluten-free hipster – stylish, with an environmental conscience. Sit back with a drink, relax... guilt-free!
Ladies, why do you have such a strong environmental focus in salon?
It’s a lifestyle choice. A healthy body, a healthy mind, a healthy planet. It’s all linked. We believe you don’t have to compromise your health for great hair, in fact, we know you don’t have to.
Lisa, who inspired you to open a salon like Organika?
I worked in a salon for 10 years before Organika. That’s when, I discovered my beliefs and lifestyle were a contradiction to my work. I was living a green life at home, but the moment I walked into work everyday, I was exposed to all of the toxins. It just didn’t feel right using them on clients either.
What do you love about the Neuma range?
This range embodies everything we stand for. It always delivers results, without the compromise. It's leading the way in healthy
products that actually work. It’s a win-win!
How has being a Prestige Partner impacted you, Lisa? Would you recommend it?
Being a Prestige Partner has given me the opportunity to be involved in all the amazing events. The trip to Hobart in August 2015 at MONA
was a standout. I’d certainly recommend this initiative.
Who inspires Organika the most?
Our clients... and I’m not just saying that. They really are the ones who keep us motivated to do better, everyday. We love hearing about their lives, getting to know each and every one, and hopefully making a difference in the way they feel.
So, what gets Sarah out of bed each morning?
Making clients feel amazing about themselves. And the look in their eyes as they walk out of the salon, knowing they look fabulous. Best of all, doing this without putting any harmful chemicals on their body. Oh, and I can’t forget my beautiful, nine month old son, Roman. He has a special knack for getting me up very early in the morning. He’s my personal alarm clock!
What are Organika’s goals for 2016?
Maybe another Organika salon – interstate this time! Exciting times ahead for the Organika team.
Okay, knowing what you know now, if you could go back in time, what‘s the one piece of advice you’d give yourself?
Always, always, always... trust your instincts. I think there’s a part of you that truly knows what’s best for you. Often, we just don’t listen to it. Follow that inner voice.
