Who are we?
• Team of Social Researchers from the University of Southampton,
Hairdressers and Environmental Managers;
Dr Denise Baden, Dr Swarna Prasad, Danielle Mills, Jordan Peel
• Project: “Embedding sustainability in the hairdressing curriculum –
sustainable solutions for hair and beauty sector” conducted by the
University of Southampton and funded by the Economic and Social
Research Council.
Eco Hair and Beauty
Presentation Overview:
• Amend to reflect sections
• Background to the key concepts relating to sustainability such as:
climate change, global warming, resource use and sustainable
development, with video clips to illustrate.
• Video clips made specifically for training providers to show trainee
hairdressers how to practice sustainable hairdressing. These cover:
• Practices that save energy and water in the salon and at home.
• Eco products for use in salon and by clients.
• Green technologies.
• Sustainable after care practices for clients.
Section 1
Key sustainability concepts
One Planet Living
• Globally; humanity is currently consuming 50% more natural resources than the Earth's
ecosystems can replenish (WWF).
• United Kingdom; if everyone in the world were to consume natural resources and
generate CO2 at the rate we do in the UK, we'd need three planets to support us.
• We only have one planet and need to stop over consuming our planets resources by
making sustainable changes in our homes and places of work.
• Concept of One Planet Living (2:46mins)
Climate change and Global warming
When CO2 is released into the atmosphere, it acts as a greenhouse gas i.e. it causes heat to remain trapped within
the atmosphere, rather than escaping back to space. This causes global warming. Science tells us that the increasing
century is mostly man-made and that temperatures are rising now faster than ever (WWF, 2015a).
Climate change and Global warming
The Climate Change Act (2008) was introduced to ensure the UK cuts its
carbon emissions by 80% by 2050. The 80% target is set against a 1990
baseline. The Governments policies to help businesses and households
achieve this are set out in:
• A rise of just 2°c would result in severe storms, floods and droughts, little
or no arctic ice, and more acidic oceans (WWF, 2015a).
Discussion points:
• How will climate change affect us?
• What are the implications for hairdressing?
(Add image of 2 people talking as header
for each discussion point)
This is likely to result in water shortages and developing countries in the
South becoming deserts.
This affects us all, as we depend on the South for crops such as coffee,
chocolate, sugar, fruit etc.
Sea levels and coastal areas will become uninhabitable.
Mass immigration.
Pressure on energy and water intensive businesses

What is a Carbon Footprint?
A carbon footprint is defined as:
• The total amount of greenhouse gases produced to support human activities,
usually expressed in equivalent tons of carbon dioxide (CO2).
• For example:
The carbon footprint of using 1 litre of petrol is 2.3kg
Using half a tank of petrol = 57.5kg
The weekly carbon footprint of someone who shampoos their hair every day with
2 shampoos and rinsed out conditioner with hot water running for 10 mins in total
is 9kg.
The weekly carbon footprint of someone who shampoos their hair twice a week
with 1 shampoo and leave-in conditioner with hot water running for 4 mins in
total, plus uses dry shampoo once a week is 0.015kg.
Sustainable Development
Sustainable Development is development that;
“meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of
future generations to meet their own needs’’
(Brundtland Commission, 1987).
The Three Pillars of Sustainability
In order for salons to be
successful in the future they
need to consider the 3 pillars of
sustainability where the social,
environmental and economical
needs of the business are
• Paying employees a fair wage
• Fairtrade tea and coffee
• Cutting wigs for cancer patients
• Donating hair clippings to oil spills and
cancer charities
• Using socially responsible products
• Eco community events
• Supporting charities Spreading sustainable
after-care advice with clients
• Adopting organic or ultra-low ammonia
• Creating a safe environment for staff and
• Installing renewable or low carbon technology
• Switching to a green energy supplier
• Up-cycling furniture
• Using brushes from FSC certified sources
• Training staff to reduce their own environmental
• Investing in industry specific green technology
• Adopting a product range where the ingredients
are sourced from renewable and sustainable
• Reduce waste sent to landfill
• Reduce energy consumption
• Reduce water consumption
• Save costs through reduced waste
• Save cost through reduced energy use
• Save costs through reduced water use
• Save costs through reduced product use
• Attract eco minded customer
Section 2 - Reducing Water
and Energy Consumption
Energy Use in the UK
Heating water is the biggest contributor to
carbon footprint in most homes and salons:
•Typical wattage of a power shower is about 10,500
•Typical wattage of a water heater is about 4,500 watts.
•Comparatively, the typical wattage of appliances such
as computers and TV are between 100 and 200 watts.
Salon activities that depend on energy
The hot water heated to shampoo hair
•Washing towels
•Boiling the kettle
•Blow drying the hair
• Straightening, curling, setting the hair
Climazones and hooded dryers
Salon activities that depend on water
• Shampooing the clients hair for a cut and blow dry
• Rinsing off a clients colour
• Rinsing a perm
• Washing towels
• Washing up
• Filling the kettle for hot drinks
• Mopping the salon
Discussion Point:
Energy Use: What can you do?
• How best can you reduce your energy consumption?
• In your home?
• In the hair salon?
• What changes in behavior/practice can you think of?
Behaviour change to reduce
energy/water consumption?
• Changes with the greatest impact are those that reduce use of water
• Waiting for a full load before you put the washing machine on
• Filling the kettle for the right amount of cups
• Switching taps off
• Water temperature: use tepid water not hot.
• And for your clients:
shampoo once not twice,
use leave in conditioner,
dry shampoo etc.
Behavioural change:
Reducing energy consumption
• Switching lights off
• Switching appliances off
• Switching taps off
• Using products to help speed up blow drying time where
• Using the correct blow drying techniques to provide a quality, yet
efficient service
Industry specific green technology that
reduces energy consumption
• Low flow showers with a wattage of
about 8,500 watts,
Shower aerators, which reduce
water consumption by about 50%.

Discussion Point?
• What are the benefits of more sustainable practices and
• To the salon?
• To the client?
• To the client’s hair?
• To the planet?
Benefits of Sustainable Behaviour
• No need for large investment
• Massive cost savings: estimated that
each 1% investment in behaviour
changes = 10% savings in costs.
• Changes culture of the industry
• Gets to the root of the problem
• Using less water, heat and chemicals is
also good for hair condition.
Why is it important to reduce the
salon’s electricity consumption?
• Saves resources and conserves fossil fuels
• Reduces carbon emissions and benefits climate change
• Reduces air pollution
• Reduces demand for electricity which makes the salon less
vulnerable to energy price fluctuations
• People are over-consuming and sustainable actions set a good
example for others to follow
Why is it important to reduce
water consumption?
• Risk of water scarcity becoming a real threat
• Relieves pressure on water treatment plants
• Saves water and conserves the vital resource
• Good habits can influence others to make changes

Section 3
Reducing Water Pollution
Water Pollution
• Waste water from hair washing is classed as “grey-water”, and is transported by sewer
systems to a treatment facility. It is vital therefore that waste water is transported safely
and treated. If these toxic chemicals were released into soil or water, they could cause
great ecological damage.
• More than 5,000 different chemicals are found in hair dye products, some of which are
reported to be carcinogen, causing cancer in animals (Bolt & Golka, 2007, de Sanjose et
al., 2006).
Case study: Eutrophication
Ammonia is widely used in hair products
Effects on the Environment
Ammonia pollution is a form of water
pollution. It results in a process known
as eutrophication, which leads to the
excessive growth of organisms such as
algae, preventing sunlight and oxygen
reaching other organisms beneath the
water surface.
Results in low levels of oxygen in
freshwater or seawater
• Algal bloom blocks out the sunlight and
kills fish
• Algal bloom blocks out the sunlight and
kills aquatic life
Green technology
that reduces water consumption
Grey water system
• A grey water system is an
effective way to reuse the high
volume of water that a salon
• The system collects ‘white’ water
that has been produced as a
result of the shampooing process,
the washing machine and general
housekeeping duties.
• The water is filtered into the grey
water system and is used for
toilet water.
Discussion Point?
• What can be done to reduce water pollution by hair
What Can be Done to
Reduce Water Pollution?
Opt for Organic and Ultra
Low Ammonia Options
Reduce colour waste
When mixing colour it can be easy to
overestimate the colour needed for
the service or clients hair. This
wasted colour is then washed
unnecessarily down the drain causing
water pollution. Mixing colour
responsibly can reduce ecological
damage and save the salon money.
Alternative hair colour contains fewer toxic
chemicals which ultimately gets washed
down the drain and enters the water
system. This change not only benefits the
environment, but improves the wellbeing of
stylists and clients as their exposure to toxic
chemicals is minimised.

Palm Oil and deforestation
Palm Oil
Palm oil is a vegetable oil and is by
far the most popular and efficient
product on the market. It is found
in many household products,
varying from pizza and chocolate to
toothpastes and soaps.
It is also found in the shampoo that
we use at home and in the salon,
but unsustainable palm oil is
causing significant environmental

destroyed at that rate of 300
football fields every hour.

Habitat Loss
The loss of forest has led to many
animals losing their homes. This has
pushed many species to the brink of
extinction, at risk are; elephants,
rhinos, tigers and orang-utans.
If orang-utans wander into nearby
villages they are seen as pests and
are captured. The mother is often
killed and the baby is sold on a as

What can be done in the
hair and beauty industry
• Choose a shampoo brand that is RSPO certified by checking the ingredients list,
if it contains vegetable oil or fat look for indication whether it comes from
sustainable sources
• If you can’t be sure that the product contains sustainable palm oil, opt for a
palm oil free product
• Educate clients about your product choice and why it is important
• Don't overuse products, use the recommended amount to reduce demand and
preserve resources

Reducing waste
The Waste Hierarchy
The waste hierarchy aims to minimise waste
• How can you apply the waste hierarchy to hair salons?
• What waste can be prevented completely?
• What can be reduced?
• What can be recycled
• What is left over that is disposed of?
Did you cover these?

process which disrupts local ecosystems
and biodiversity
• The process involves habitat destruction,
soil erosion and water pollution
• Contributes to global warming
• Foil takes 400 years minimum to break
• Just 1% of salons recycle their foil
Reducing Waste; Recycling
How? Set up recycling bins in convenient places in the salon, label the
recycling bins with a list a common salon waste items that can be
disposed of, approach the task as a team
Why? Reduces pressure on landfill and saves resources
Section 6
Health and Safety
Health and Safety implications of toxic
substances and chemicals in hair-care products
Shampoos contain many chemicals that can be harmful to health and to
hair condition.
The most common chemical in shampoos is Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS)
which is a foaming agent that removes oily build up in hair.
These chemicals are called “surfactants”- they reduce the surface-tension
for liquids, in order to make it easier for them to spread around the hair.
Sulphates strip the hair of essential oils, which can lead to dry hair, both
in appearance and how it feels to touch.
Shampooing too often leads to hair losing it’s essential oils, drying hair
out, leaving it prone to breakage, making it look less than lush.
SLS acts as an irritant, and cause allergic reactions or rashes in some.
Limited regulations on chemicals in haircare products
• In contrast to food and drinks, regulations for cosmetics and
shampoos are lax.
• There is a lack of evidence relating to the safety of the mix of
chemicals in hair-products.
• Many hair-care ingredients (DEA, NDEA, SLS, SLES, Propylene Glycol)
are irritants and potentially carcinogenic (cancer-causing).
• It is wise to use only as much as you need and wear gloves:
remember LESS IS MORE!
Hair colour: toxicity concerns
Hair-colour uses some very harsh chemicals
Over 5000 different chemicals are used in hair colour products and some
have been associated with respiratory diseases, allergic reactions,
dermatitis, and even cancer.
In the USA, hairdressers have the same life insurance risk as fire fighters!
Concerns have grown since hairdressers and barbers have been found to
be at increased risk of bladder cancer
In Denmark the fumes from hair colour are considered so toxic that
colours containing ammonia have to be mixed under a fume cupboard
extraction system.
Hair colour: toxicity concerns
There are good health and safety reasons not to actively promote hair
But having hair coloured in salon should be safer as quantities of colour
are more precisely controlled so not too much is used.
The darker the colour the greater the health risk.
A safer alternative is temporary hair colour.
Organic products and semi-permanents that don’t use hydrogen
peroxide reduce level of colour needed for darker hair.
One salon owner reported that since he changed to organic products his
staff’s dermatitis problems had cleared up completely.
Section 6
Eco products
Carbon Footprint of Shampoo
• Roughly 93% of the carbon footprint of shampoo, conditioner and other hair
products is associated with heating water in the “use phase”,
• The remaining 7% is mostly packaging.
• Therefore you are
decreasing your carbon
footprint by reducing
your product
consumption, as well as
your hot water
There are two ways in which a product can be eco-friendly:
1. The way in which it is used results in less water/energy being used
e.g. dry shampoo, leave-in conditioner, cleansing conditioner.
2. The brand/company is known for its green credentials e.g.
1.Recyclable/less packaging
2.have less toxic ingredients, avoid ingredients that damage the
environment e.g. uses sustainable palm oil, ammonia free, PPD
Eco-products that use less resources

Dry Shampoo
Dry shampoo is a product that can be used to soak up excess oil at the
roots to keep hair looking fresher between washes.
This intervention reduces the frequency of shampooing and need to
style hair which saves water, electricity and detergents.

• What other benefits of dry shampoo can you think of?
Benefits of Dry Shampoo
• Dry shampoo saves typically 8 minutes running hot water + 5 minutes blow drying
• Saves approx. 62 litres of water per shampoo
• Saves 1.04 kg CO₂e (carbon emissions)
• Saves 2.25 kWh energy .
• Good for hair as it doesn’t strip natural oils from scalp, or make brittle through blow
• Makes hair easier to style, can give volume. Coloured versions can help to cover grey roots
• Cost savings: using dry shampoo once a week over a year saves approx. £80 per
• Time saving: Takes less than a minute. How long does your normal wash and dry take?
• Convenience: can do anywhere, good when no access to water e.g. festivals, camping.
• Reduces colour-fade due to less rinsing and so has environmental, time, cost and health
Leave-in conditioner
Leave in conditioner can be used in place of a regular conditioner. Clients may find
that their hair is easier to style and doesn't become greasy as quickly.
Using a leave in conditioner can save water and electricity as the need to apply and
rinse regular conditioner is eliminated.
A great product for those with long hair or fine hair

Cleansing Conditioner/Co-washing/ 2 in 1
Cleansing conditioners cleanse hair and remove dirt gently without
stripping it. They do not contain sulphates and therefore do not lather or
strip the hair and scalp of natural oils like regular shampoo.
They eliminate the need for conditioner and therefore save water,
electricity and detergents.

• Saves 0.25 kg CO₂e (carbon emissions)
• Saves 0.54 kWh energy .
• Good for hair as
• Cleansing conditioner doesn’t strip natural oils from scalp
• Leave-in conditioner gives body to fine hair, making it easier to style.
• Cost savings: removing one rinse cycle each time over a year saves approx. £80 per
• Saves 1-5 minutes depending on length/type of hair.
• Reduces colour-fade due to less rinsing and so has environmental, time, cost and health
and safety benefits.
• Eco colours are temporary hair chalks that wash out after shampooing. They give
vibrant results but contain no chemicals which benefits hair condition as ammonia
destroys the protein in the hair.
Great for clients who like to change their colour as the colour is easily removed and
maintenance is minimal as colour washes out leaving no regrowth.
They also benefit the environment as no chemicals including ammonia enter the water
Social benefits to staff and clients include the reduced risk of allergies, cancer and
occupational asthma due to the elimination of toxic chemicals.

The Ripple Effect: advising
The Ripple Effect in the
Hair and Beauty Industry
Discussion Point?
• What hair-care practices can you recommend to your
clients that will save energy and water (and also time and
What home-care practices are we
talking about?
Shampooing once instead of twice
Shampooing less often
Encouraging the use of dry shampoo
Use leave-in conditioner
Use products such as cleansing conditioner/2in1 products
Reducing/eliminating the volume of conditioner used per wash
Leaving hair to dry naturally as much as possible
Reducing the use of straighteners, curling tongs and other heated appliances and
using alternatives such as heat-free curlers
How hair is washed
Water should be tepid NOT hot
• Most of us wash our hair in water that is too hot.
Washing hair in tepid water rather than hot water is better for the follicles.
Overly hot water stimulates the sebaceous glands and encourages oil
production which can lead to oily hair.
Washing in tepid water also saves energy and money.
Less product
• Most of us use too much shampoo - most shampoos contain harsh chemicals
such as sodium lauryl sulphate which strip the oil from the hair (made worse if
water is too hot).
Most of us shampoo hair more often than we need to.
Role Play Activity
• In pairs role play how you can integrate such advice into
typical conversations with clients.
• For example, link into particular hair-care issues they may
have, or discussions about time, money, holidays etc.
Advice to clients
• The biggest impact you have as hairdressers is the advice you give to
your clients. Watch these clips to get some ideas on how you can
integrate advice into the service you provide:
• 10 mini clips of < minute each showing how you can advise clients
of products/practices that are good for their hair, but also better for
the environment. (also shown on slide 30)
The Ripple Effect in the

 Our findings show that just one
learner can go on to help
clients to save a minimum of
552kg of carbon annually just
by recommending dry
 This is equivalent to preventing
402 Intelligent Energy Saving
Hair Dryers from being sent to

 Our findings show that just one
college that teaches learners
about sustainable after care
advice can equip their learners
with the knowledge to go on to
help clients to save a minimum
of 39,745.22kg of carbon
annually just by recommending
dry shampoo
This is equivalent to taking 8.4
cars off the road annually
The equivalent of preventing
23,083 barbering chairs from
being sent to landfill (14.2 tons)
Link between sustainability and hairdressing
• A study in California showed that if every person in California
switched to cleansing conditioners and reduced their showers by just
one minute, around 2,600,000,000 gallons (12,000,000,000 litres) of
water would be saved every year. That is the same amount as 4800
Olympic sized swimming pools.
• This would save 130 kWh of power every year
• The reduced electricity costs would save $15.8million (around
• Per person, this would mean a saving of 730 gallons (3300 litres) and
about $4 (£2.55) in energy costs per year.

Create a salon calculator to calculate cost savings and eco savings
Cost of running water = energy bill + water bill.
Running hot water costs 1.25p per minute or £365 per year (assuming one 8 minute shower
every day) with an electric immersion boiler and a power shower head.
This could be reduced by 960% by using a gas-heated cylinder boiler and an eco shower head,
which costs only 1.3p per minute, or £37.96 per year (assuming one 8 minute shower every

Cost Saving Activity
Work out how much could a salon save a year by reducing rinsing time by 3
minutes per client by having one less rinse cycle per client?
May do this by shampooing once rather than twice, using leave in conditioner
rather than rinse out conditioner, using cleansing conditioner rather than
shampoo + condition
Cost of running hot water - assume 6p per minute
Removing one rinse cycle would save 3 minutes per customer
Assume 20 customers a day = £? a year
Carbon footprint quiz
• Do our carbon footprint quiz online (5-15 mins)
• What was the carbon footprint of your hair-care
• Discuss among yourselves what changes you would be most likely
to make or advise your clients to make?
• High resource client: shampoos their hair every day, and with the following
pattern – shampoo once, rinse, shampoo twice, rinse, condition, rinse, blow
dry, straighten
Water use = 20,630 litres; energy use = 851 kWh, carbon footprint = 380 kg
• Lower resource client: uses dry shampoo once a week, shampoos hair
twice a week, and shampoos just once, uses leave-conditioner, lets hair dry to
80% dry before using hairdryer.
Water use = 3,224 litres; energy use = 119.83 kWh, carbon footprint = 53.6 kg
Imagine if just 10% of clients changed their habits for their lifetime, as a result
of your advice, and then passes advice onto to their kids.
