HAIRPRINT is a scientific breakthrough in natural colouring that heals and restores colour to your hair.
Created by the acclaimed chemist, Dr John Warner of the Babcock Institute for Green Chemistry in Massachusetts. HAIRPRINT is a safe non–toxic process that mimics the colouring process that hair goes through infusing hair with its natural pigment instead of stripping the hair.
Awarded with the highest honour in American chemistry, the Perkin Award, Dr Warner worked for four years to find a natural way to colour hair. Working with grey coloured extensions, after testing many strands, he found the results to be inconsistent. Later he discovered that the test samples came from various sources. It then became evident to Dr Warner that HAIRPRINT was, in fact, restoring colour to the hair. Warner soon theorised that HAIRPRINT might be restoring the natural pigment to hair and to test his theory; he applied it to his hair.
The result was his hair returned to the colour it was 30 years prior. HAIRPRINT was born.
Jasmine Scalesciani, an ambassador for clean beauty, non-toxic hair products and minimising our effects on the ocean, heads up HAIRPRINT USA.
In 2012 a small science-based company in Sausalito, California undertook the mammoth task to develop a non-toxic method to restore grey hair to its natural colour.
Co-founder of a scientific discipline called green chemistry – a science which takes its cues from nature, Dr Warner along with other inspiring individuals created HAIRPRINT. Green chemistry employs benign, non-toxic molecules to achieve better results than synthetic chemicals.
Jasmine Scalesciani-Hawken is not only the creative director at HAIRPRINT but also its co-founder. A range of hair and beauty products based on wild botanicals, the non-toxic hair colouring treatment with a cult following in the wellness industry is the biggest discovery in hair colour since 1908.
