issue eleven : tactile colour

I have naturally curly hair that I have lambasting with some or another colour for most of my life. When I was living by the ocean and the tap water I was using to wash it in wasn’t brimming with limescale and the detectable odour of chlorine, I had, what some might say was, enviable hair. Soft cascading curls that didn’t demand much attention. Just the kind of hair management I am preferable too. Sadly, I cannot say that is still the case since moving to London. My once naturally bouncy curls have become limp, contorted memories of themselves. Aside from the aforementioned limescale and chlorine heavy water alluded to in the first paragraph (aka hard water) the continued use of colour to try to add a little “sunshine” back to my once golden locks only exacerbates the problem of dry, brittle and dull hair that forces me to wear it scraped back because I am too lazy to tame it.

Another thing you should know about me… is that I hate a sachet sample! I get why they are important to beauty brands, but the fact that they are not even remotely recyclable (and I know the statistics on recycling) gives me the shivers. So when I accidentally land up with a sample packet (I intentionally decline them, but sometimes a sneaky one sneaks in) I make a point of using them, so at the very least I don’t waste the product (containing precious resources and energy) within.

Every now and then, however, a sneaky sachet that would usually conjure up utter disdain instead inspires sheer delight. One such example was when I finally got round to opening the Innersense Colour Awakening Hairbath and the complimentary Colour Radiance Daily Conditioner. I am not exaggerating when I say that it was an OH-EM-GEE moment. The total sensorial experience and the immediate results that ensued left a big impression on me. I’ve been waiting for the perfect opportunity to write about them.

Aside from the obvious alignment with the Tactile Colour theme, the other reason Innersense Organic Beauty is worthy of inclusion is, well, their commitment to inclusion and advocation of people living with disabilities. I had the pleasure of meeting the founders Joanne and Greg and their muse, Morgan at a beauty event a couple of years ago. They kindly gifted me with some of their styling range (which included a bottle of the Sweet Spirit Leave In Conditioner) which has become a firm favourite in my professional styling kit.

This collection of colour safe products has been specially designed to keep colour vibrant, healthy and hydrated. Admittedly, the price tag is a hefty one. However, if you consider the time, money and environmental impact you will save by prolonging the life of your colour, the trio doesn’t seem too drastic. Besides, good hair days are priceless. If you, like me, like to try before you invest…or if you travel a lot and like to always have your favourite untainted alternatives with you, they also have a much more affordable travel trio that’s a little easier on the pocket.

I can say with confidence that this is a brand I will be investing in (once I have used up all the haircare in the house) because my hair loves it, and I love a good hair day!
