http://www.safecosmetics.org The Campaign for Safe Cosmetics is a broad-based coalition, housed at the Breast Cancer Fund, working to clean up the beauty aisle through public advocacy and market campaigns designed to eliminate dangerous chemicals linked to cancer, reproductive harm and other adverse health impacts from cosmetics and personal care products.
Since the Campaign was launched in 2004, we have educated millions of people about the problem of toxic chemicals in cosmetics, which has markedly increased demand for safer products. Now hundreds of companies fully disclose ingredients and avoid the use of cancer-causing chemicals, reproductive toxicants and other unsafe chemicals, demonstrating these practices are not only possible, but profitable.
The Campaign’s steering committee is made up of the Breast Cancer Fund, the Alliance for a Healthy Tomorrow (represented by Clean Water Action), Friends of the Earth, and Women’s Voices for the Earth.

Sojourn Beauty products are a Hollywood Fashionista favorite!
When we learned that Sojourn Beauty products are not only used by celebrities at home, but also used on set for films and shows such as Pan Am, Happy Ending, Whitney, Vampire Diaries and One Tree Hill, we knew we had to try the collection.
We decided to test out the “Smooth” hair care collection by Sojourn since here in the Bay Area we can easily fall victim to foggy weather which makes our hair frizzy and fluff in the wrong places. After using the shampoo and conditioner for four days straight, our hair was manageable and frizzy-free; love it!
Since the shampoo and conditioner alone were able to smooth our hair, we dedicated to try out the “Serum Smooth” while blow drying our hair.
Once again, smooth and shiny results! The leave-in detangler also worked like a charm when we tried it. We tested the detangler on fine, blond hair that tangles and frizzes one minute after being combed. Again, we were impressed! Her hair was tangle free and it did not frizzy back up; as it normally does on a daily basis.
The verdict is in! Five out of five stars for Sojourn Beauty’s Smooth collection. The hair care line is pH balanced with a range of 4.5-5.5 which is based on positive hair chemistry.
Sojourn Beauty is also eco-conscious since the packaging is 100% biodegradable, there are no artificial colors and it is sulfate-free, gluten-free, formaldehyde-free, paraben-free and contains Keratin Cashmere protein. Fabulous!
TEXTURE! Texture is the star in this episode of OFF-Label Styles, as we feature a trio of products to create volume, shine, and definition! My inspiration came from the Ombré hair coloring technique. What inspires you? Let us know on the Sojourn Beauty Facebook, or add me (Sadie Marquez) personally, and let’s talk about your favorite ways to use Sojourn products. Feel free to become a Sojourn Beauty Cutie and post your pictures.

Coarse And Thick Hair “I recommend not washing every day.Your natural oils will work their way down to your ends (Really! Once or twice a week is fine.). When you do shampoo, wash twice. It’s harder to get through, and really get a good scalp cleansing when there is a lot of thick hair.Sojourn Thermal Protection Straightener, $24, available at Shine .
Sojourn’s Thermal Protection Straightener is great — apply from roots to ends on wet hair. It’s lightweight, and protects the hair from the heat. Try it after air drying if you want to achieve less volume and body. A great keratin treatment would do wonders for people with coarse hair. And now Liqwid carries the non-formaldehyde Keratin that’s not bad for your health.”
*Fire-engine red hair? Chemically-treated? The secret to long-lasting colour and treatments is Colour (white)!
When coloring hair, closing the cuticle to seal in and protect the color is a must. A lower pH scale will help with this. A slightly acidic pH (3.5-4.5) helps seal the cuticle and prevent fading. To maintain, restore hair to its natural pH level (4.5-5.5) when shampooing and conditioning. – Rob Guimond, Director of Chemistry.

Like so many of the hairstylists we meet on a daily basis our passion for the art and craft of hairstyling goes beyond the simple desire to earn a living. It is an extension of the love we have for beauty and fashion, architecture and design, people and nature. The commitment we have to family, the professionals we work with, and the next generation of stylists. A pledge that now extends to Sojourn.
We have been blessed with an intimate perspective on the culture of hairdressing and some of the world’s greatest hairstylists—men and women who revolutionized the art of modern hairstyling. Our respect for these artists runs deep. Hairdressing is a noble profession enriched by a strong tradition of skilled craftsmanship and carefully nurtured alliances. The bonds that come from guiding, encouraging and supporting another individual in developing the skills needed to be successful are the very essence of our industry.
This is the energy behind Sojourn—a professional product line based on positive chemistry, ecological integrity and some of the good business practices that we have lost in recent years—like quality ingredients, in salon education, and professional distribution.
The people you meet on these pages and those you will soon meet on the road with us share the same vision. We are an industry that strives to make people more beautiful and what a joy it is to be part of that. From that single unified thought we invite each and every hairdresser to join us in charting a new course. One by one we believe we can restore the values that inspire creativity and craftsmanship in all hairstylists. Bringing beauty, health and wellness to all the people we serve.
