Organic Hair Care


Dr. Javid Calcatti took over a well-known salon on Angell Street with the goal of converting it into a second location for his Balencia Medspa. During the transition, however, he was appalled to see stylists and clients enveloped by harsh sprays, fumes, and dyes. How could it be healthy to inhale these chemicals day after day? So, with wellness in mind, Dr. Calcatti decided to continue salon operation along with the medical spa – with one caveat: The salon would exclusively offer natural, organic products and services.

GREENPROSE uses Natulique Organic hair products from Denmark. These products, which range from simple shampoos and sprays to scalp therapy, color, and hair masks, are the safest in the professional beauty industry; they’re gentle, free of dangerous chemicals and preservatives like ammonia, and vegan. Plus, their packaging is sustainable, which fits into GreenProse’s mission of being a green salon, meaning they recycle everything from the foils they use to the hair they’ve cut.

“Standard hair color and products contain chemicals that can put one at high risk for several health conditions, including some cancers,” says Dr. Calcatti. “Our color and products contain more than 98 percent natural ingredients. Why would you want to get exposed to harsh chemicals when safer alternatives are available?”
