Paper Not Foil joins Colour World for the first time in 2019

Paper Not Foil at #CWUK19

Paper Not Foil is the product that the hairdressing industry has been waiting for and now it is available in the UK and will be showcased for the first time at Colour World…

This is the first environmentally-friendly alternative to traditional hair colour essentials such as meche or foil, which degrades without any toxic waste, and is made using 96% less energy than foil.

Paper Not Foil is made from ground-down industrial waste from the construction industry, which is simply recycled and turned into paper, producing zero toxic waste in the process. No water is used in its manufacturing and its carbon emissions are incredibly low, resulting in a product that is recyclable, photo-degradable and compostable under suitable conditions. This is a huge benefit for salons, because unless foil  has been rinsed after use and is completely free from colour, it can’t be recycled.

Expect to see plenty of creative colouring from the Paper Not Foil colour team, who will be demonstrating exactly how versatile the product can be. Its chalk like texture means it grips well to the hair, and unlike foil you don’t need to fold the edges over into parcels, saving time when applying colour. Simply place onto the hair, apply colour and fold together.
