Why Organic Shampoo?
Jean Harlow was the very first celebrity to rock platinum-blonde strands, even before Marilyn Monroe, Jayne Mansfield, or Gwen Stefani came on to the scene.
The white-blond hue was first requested by Howard Hughes, the billionaire producer of Hell's Angels. It was in this film that Hughes’ publicity department coined Harlow's nickname as “the Platinum Blonde.”
To go with the new moniker, the actress’s ash-blonde hair was colored a white-blonde. In fact, as a publicity stunt for Hell's Angels, the studio’s publicists offered $10,000 to any hairdresser who could match the color.
Naturally, no one could. Back then, there was no dye on the market that could make one’s hair as white-hot as Jean Harlow’s. Her personal hairdresser, Alfred Pagano, revealed the secret decades later, saying, “We used peroxide, ammonia, Clorox, and Lux flakes. Can you believe that?"
To keep up with her blonde bombshell, Harlow repeated the bleaching process on a weekly basis. Not only was the toxic concoction immediately painful on her scalp, her hair began to fall out.
On June 7, 1937, at 26 years old, Harlow died from from kidney failure and uremic poisoning. Leading up to her death, she also suffered from high blood pressure and a deadened brain and central nervous system.
Some believe that the heavy-duty hair bleaching process may have led to her death. But this, for the most part, has been discounted even though any chemist will tell you that Ammonia and Clorox, when mixed, create hydrochloric acid, a noxious gas that can lead to kidney damage when inhaled.
Unfortunately, Harlow's story didn’t stop fans from trying to imitate her platinum-blonde hair. Many of these fans suffered from disastrous, unforeseen results. One of those fans was Sher Ray founder, Sherry Raymond-Coblantz.
As a young adult, Sherry followed the same weekly bleach routine as Harlow, Monroe, Grable, Mansfield, Stephani, and more.
Amazingly enough, she was able to closely imitate the platinum-blonde look.
But it didn't take long for Sherry to experience the same results as Harlow: scalp pain, extreme hair loss, and rapidly thinning hair. As she was beginning to go bald in her mid-twenties, she realized something was wrong.
So she set to reverse the effects through daily treatment.
There weren’t any natural shampoo or conditioning products on the market in the 1960s. Clinique was hypoallergenic, but it had chemicals and dyes that Sherry didn’t want on her scalp.
It took a little over a year for her to develop the right recipes for her cosmetics. Through trial and error she finally formulated the right combinations. Her goal was to extend the life span of her cells to keep her scalp feeling healthier and her hair last longer.
She did have help from her dad’s chemist Rene, but she did the testing on herself; she still has the scars on her arms. Every six to eight weeks, she tested two new formulas. Finally, she was ecstatic with her results and has been making and using her organic hair care formulas ever since.
