Organic hair care

Part of the CG Boutique experience is using my own formulated organic hair care product range, “CG Hairdressing” shampoos, conditioners, treatments and styling. These are all Australian made products that I have carefully selected that are cruelty-free with no nasty additions, made up with beautiful organic ingredients.

I am extremely proud to have a hair care range that is a pure luxury and yet affordable. The reason behind creating this product range was to carry on providing my clients with a professional service in maintaining and looking after their hair at home in between salon visits. 

Working for high-end luxury brands in hair care, I have learnt, by research and use, what’s the best of the best in hair care products, thus enabling me to bring to my salon my personalised must-have range.
