While our brand is pretty and pink, we go so much further than that!
Get ready to dive into the world of Philocaly Hair – where pretty meets purpose.
Oh, the wild and wonderful realm of hair extensions! It's a place we absolutely adore being a part of, but let's be real, it's also an industry filled with hidden truths and a lack of regulation.
From frustrated consumers to hair extension entrepreneurs, we took it upon ourselves to implement change by offering a product that goes entirely against the despicable yet standard practices in the extension industry.
From our ethical sourcing to our world renowned processing techniques, we want you to feel confident that you are in the hands of a company that is trustworthy and reliable. Although many businesses claim to be ethically sourced, we go over and above this and even have an ethical seal which shows our ethical practices.
Ethical Sourcing – empowering donors and eliminating exploitation
In an industry that often operates under a cloud of shady practices, we're here to set things right. Crimes such as kidnapping women and children for their hair and/or cutting it off against their will is not uncommon.
At Philocaly Hair, we refuse to turn a blind eye to injustice. Our extensions are sourced through fair trade, ensuring that every strand has been willingly sold with the full consent of the donor.
By offering a fair and reasonable price for their hair, we empower donors and promote a more equitable industry. We hope to see more extension companies adopt our fair trade model.
Philocaly's Promise of Single Donor Integrity
Philocaly extensions are 100% single donor collected. This means every package of Philocaly hair extensions are ethically gathered from the same person.
While other companies might gather hair from a mishmash of sources or even from clogged drains (yikes!), we take pride in our commitment to single donor integrity. Each package of Philocaly hair extensions is ethically gathered from one amazing person. Not only does this give our hair extensions natural flow and movement, but it also means zero tangling and matting (hallelujah). You deserve the best, and we're here to deliver it!
As consumers, it's important to remember that you control the industry. Every time you choose to purchase ethically sourced extensions and say no to unethical ones, you help put a stop to this market of exploitation.
Philocaly Recycling: Help clean oil spills with your pre-loved hair extensions
But wait, there's more! We're also passionate about protecting our planet.
Say hello to Philocaly's Recycling Program, where your pre-loved hair extensions become superheroes in the fight against oil spills!
Did you know that hair has a special talent for absorbing oil? It's true! Hair is known for its exceptional ability to absorb oil, making it an ideal material for creating specialized mats that effectively soak up oil spills. The donated hair extensions are repurposed into these mats, which are then deployed in areas affected.
At Philocaly Hair, we recognize the urgency of addressing this issue, which is why we have partnered with the Matter of Trust Program's Clean Wave Campaign, which focuses on waste fibre recycling and raising awareness about the environmental impact of oil spills.
By donating your extensions, you actively contribute to cleanup efforts and help mitigate the devastating effects of oil spills on our precious ecosystems.
It's a simple and straightforward process! Instead of discarding your unwanted extensions, follow these easy steps to contribute to the cause.
- First, snip off the extension portion from your hair extensions, such as the tabs from tape-ins, the bonds from keratin tips, or wefts from hand-tied, flat wefts, and clip-ins. This step ensures that only the hair part is donated for recycling.
- Philocaly Hair prefers to receive hair extensions back in bulk. If you're a stylist and have accumulated enough hair to fill a shoebox, you can request a prepaid return shipping label by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org. Once you receive the shipping label, neatly package the hair extensions and affix the label to the outside of the package. Drop off the package at the post office, and it will be sent to Philocaly Hair's head office. Easy-peasy!
- Upon receiving the hair extensions, Philocaly Hair will forward them to the Clean Wave Campaign, where they will be transformed into hair mats.
- And for our lovely clients, you can also donate your hair directly to our Philocaly Verified Stylists. It's a fantastic way to get involved in the recycling initiative and support your local stylists in making a difference.
Every strand of donated hair plays a significant role in the overall impact we can make. By embracing recycling initiatives and involving our customers in the process, we aim to make a difference that extends beyond the beauty industry.
Transforming the beauty industry – pretty, pink, and green
At Philocaly Hair, we believe in the power of collective action. By recycling your hair extensions, you become an integral part of our movement to transform the beauty industry into a force for environmental protection.
Your pre-loved Philocaly hair extensions hold the potential to contribute to something truly remarkable.
Join us on this journey as we challenge industry norms, empower donors, and make a lasting impact on our planet.
Together, we can make the world a more beautiful place, inside and out.
