    South Africa welcomes O&M

    • 4 min read

    Original & Mineral was born in the Heart of Australia and have finally arrived on South African shores.

    Joyce Bryce Smith lives by the philosophy: “Healthy hair begins when its free from stress. Reduce the chemical overload.” Smith had a dream to bridge the gap between healthy, chemical-free products and the world of high-fashion.

    Original & Mineral aims to combine nature and luxury and bring in a line of Australia-born hair colour, care and styling products that are safe and effective to use.

    O&M’s products are specially formulated to replace harsh chemicals with active natural extracts and minerals which includes native Australian ingredients such as Lilly Pilly, Banksia Flower, Tasmanian Kelp, Quandong and Kakadu Plum, as well as a combination of quality essential oils. They believe in challenging the artificial norms of professional haircare by removing harsh chemicals while including natural extracts and active minerals to create formulations that are both effective and gentle.

    O&M is taking the professional hair care industry by storm. Stylists, salons and hair care professionals around the globe are all moving towards these natural and free from harsh chemical products.

    The wait is over. Original and Mineral products have arrived in South Africa and are segmented into three product ranges: Haircare, Styling, and Treatment.
