8 Facts about Oway Hmelt
The pigments are harvested from biodynamic-organic phytoactive ingredients.
Oway Hmelt’s ingredients are cultivated and harvested in our family farm in Bologna, Italy. Called Ortofficina, our 50,000-square meter piece of land uses the biodynamic farming method.
A step above organic, biodynamic farming is a holistic form of agriculture that does away with the use synthetic mineral fertilizers, heavy machinery, and chemical pesticides. Instead we use natural fertilizers like humus, earthworms, and insects; and enlisted the help of our free-range donkeys Spritz and Fulmine to mow vegetation and produce fertilizer for the farm. To manage the land and harness our ingredients’ potent benefits, we base our operations on an astronomical calendar. Cosmic and lunar cycles are closely monitored to determine the best time for planting and harvesting, like what ancient farmers used to do back when polluting chemicals and machinery aren’t a thing.
Hmelt DOES NOT contain questionable chemicals such as synthetic fragrance, parabens, phthalates, petroleum, ammonia, GMOs, formaldehyde, among others.
These chemicals will continue to be in Oway’s no-fly list. Preserving the health of the client, stylist, and planet has always been the core of our mission. It’s simply something we cannot compromise.
Hmelt is powered by phytoactives derived from Biodynamic Curly Dock and Organic Mullein.
Oway’s ability to preserve the integrity of the hair during color and lightening treatments is what separates the brand from other salon products in the market. With Oway Hmelt, we’ve added more nourishing ingredients into the mix to keep the hair in top shape throughout the treatment.
Biodynamic Curly Dock is rich in magnesium, iron, potassium, and calcium – which are necessary for improving the hair’s sheen, softness, and combability. Meanwhile, Organic Mullein, which is known for its brilliant flowers, absorbs light and transforms it into stunning brightness, leaving the hair with enhanced color radiance.
Each Hmelt shade contains phytopigments from Fair Trade botanicals.
Our green chemists at Oway have developed a way to obtain color-intensifying pigments from plants. Each Oway Hmelt Pure Pigment Concentrate contains pigments derived from Turmeric, Saffron, Rhatany, Broom, Walnut, and Lycopene. Moreover, these botanicals are acquired from verified Fair Trade networks to support less fortunate communities.

You client’s choice of Hmelt shade reflects their mood and energy.
As holistic hair stylists, the service we provide goes beyond coloring hair. Unlike regular salons, we aim to provide them the most relaxing and pleasant experience. This is why with Oway Hmelt, we highly encourage doing the 5-Point Hmelt Alchemic Consultation, a process that aims to hone the strength of your relationship with your client.
- It starts with showing your clients the Hmelt Chromatic Color Chart and asking which color they’re usually drawn to.
- Each Hmelt color conveys a specific meaning that reflects their mood and energy. After the reveal, observe their micro facial expressions, body language, and speech to see if the color’s energy resonates.
- Continue the consultation until you’ve identified the shade and intensity your clients want.
- Afterwards, discuss with them the process needed to achieve the color they desire. How many lightening sessions is required? How much will it cost? How long will the color last? Doing this will avoid any future misunderstanding and complaints.
- Proceed with the corresponding Hmelt color they’ve selected.
