About Bobby

A Detroit native with hair on his mind, Bobby Fintor loved hair as a child and has always thought he is lucky to love what he does. At 14, Bobby had his first brush with hair as a hair model where he acquired blue locks. Thus began his fascination with hair, color and texture. He studied at the David Pressley School of Cosmetology in Royal Oak, Michigan learning to work with all hair types, textures and styles. He then traveled to Europe and Asia. He worked in Osaka, Japan where he learned Asian techniques and styling of hair. It was during his travels in Asia that Bobby developed a keen interest in the environment, having seen first hand the destruction that waste and chemicals have on the beauty of the Earth.

A New Yorker for the past decade, Bobby has developed his own style of cutting and coloring hair, focusing on ammonia free permanent hair coloring and the “dry cut” technique while living a green life. He believes by cutting dry you can see what the hair will do and how it will lay, enabling one to design a look that is true to the client’s needs. Looking to minimize his impact on the environment, he looks for products that are as effective as they were eco-friendly. He worked with the product line MOP for years but had yet to find a color line that satisfied both his professional and environmental needs until 8 years ago when he was introduced to an organic, ammonia-free hair color line. This started a green revolution. He now uses the organic line and a permanent hair coloring line that is PPD, Resorcinol & Ammonia free. A permanent hair coloring line that works without itching, burning and irritation of traditional hair coloring. Beauty can be a painless, enjoyable experience. Using the most clean, green professional permanent hair color line on the market today greening the planet one head at a time. It is revolutionizing the hair care industry.

PPD, Ammonia & Resorcinol Free Hair Coloring

It is a beautiful range of long-lasting, permanent hair coloring containing certified organic and natural ingredients. Make a minus a positive. 100% ammonia-free, PPD (paraphenylenediamine) and Resorcinol Free. PPD is pigment that often causes allergic reactions from slight itching to very server. Resorcinol is a chemical often used when ammonia is removed. Grey hair can be very stubborn to change. You should enjoy coloring your hair.
Yes, it will cover grey beautifully. Yes, it is permanent. No, it will not fade any faster than ammoniated color lines. Fading is often an affect of external factors such as chlorine, harsh products and sun. Proper care can greatly reduce these factors.
Often MEA, monoethanolamine or a similar ingredient is used to replace ammonia. MEA is an organic chemical compound that is a primary amine and primary alcohol. It can be toxic, flammable, and corrosive at high amounts. It is used as a replacement ph adjuster in haircolor that is considered ammonia-free and used at lower percentages and coupled with emollient oils, making it less volatile and less corrosive than ammonia and MEA doesn’t off gas. There is a lot of discussion about MEA. Bottom line is it doesn’t off gas and is consider must less toxic than ammonia. All high toxicity warnings seem to be when it is used in large industrial amounts.
Henna, most people think Lucile Ball or messy and difficult. Some Hennas put PPD in them to create colors. I use Surya Henna. It is free from Ammonium, Lauryl Sulfate, Artificial Fragrance, BHA and BHT DEA (Diethanolamine), MEA (Monoethanolamine) and TEA (Triethanolamine), DEA-Related Ingredients, Diazolidinyl Urea, Dibutyl Phthalate, Dioxin, Ethoxylated surfactants and 1,4-dioxane, Formaldehyde-Releasing Preservatives-Dmdm Hydantoin, GMOs, Hydroquinone, Imidazolidinyl Urea, Lead, Mercury, Methenamine and Quaternium-1, Mineral Oil, Oxybenzone, P-aminophenol, Parabens (Methyl, Butyl, Ethyl and Propyl), (PPD) Paraphenylenediamine, Parfum and Synthetic Fragrances, Polyethylene glycol (PEG), Petrolatum, Phenoxyethanol, Carbomer, EDTA, Phthalates, Propylene Glycol (PG) & Butylene Glycol, Resorcinol, Silicone-derived emollients, Siloxanes, Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), Solvents, Toluene and Triclosan. They use various natural ingredients to create beautiful colors.
It is cheap to manufacture. The Danish government has banned the mixing of ammoniated hair coloring in the open in salons. They have to be mixed under an extraction system in a separate room. MEA does not give off a gas when used in hair color.
Yes, I use a beautiful range of blondes and an Organic ammonia-free lightener.
Yes, unfortunately people can be allergic to anything. Some people are allergic to the pigment used in hair coloring and others can be allergic to any of the ingredients in coloring. It is always recommended to do a patch test before coloring for the first time. For most people it is ammonia that is irritating and causes itching. The use of a PPD free and Resorcinol free hair coloring greatly reduces allergic reactions to hair coloring. Without ammonia there are many advantages. There is little to no staining on the skin and you don’t get bands of color, hot roots (lighter at the roots) and/or colors that fade to strange off tone. Skin irritation and burning on the scalp is significantly reduced, due to the pharmaceutical grade hydrogen peroxide H2O2 which is used.
No, it is pharmaceutical grade. It is a green compound used in a controlled environment. H2O2 is used in many green cleaners, whitening of teeth, toothpastes, floor cleaners and for clothes in laundry. If it can go in your mouth, it should be good enough for your hair.
One of the biggest trends recently is greening of hair coloring. Hair coloring manufacturers are moving towards greener safer hair coloring for both the stylist and customer. Only recently has Ammonia, PPD and Resorcinol Free hair coloring become available. I have been ammonia free for 20 plus years and am very happy to see the safe advancements in permanent hair coloring.
