About CHI New Zealand, Salon Haircare

Hairdressing salons throughout New Zealand purchase their natural salon hair care products from CHI NZ, owned by Well In Touch.

Salons are increasingly seeing a need for more natural salon-quality hair care products. Many stylists struggle with nasty chemicals, like ammonia, that can cause harsh reactions for salon clients. It was this need that sparked the idea for CHI’s founder to develop a range of ammonia-free, natural salon products. After going on to develop the very first ceramic hair iron, the range grew to include professional styling tools.

Since 2005, salon owners and hairdressing professionals in New Zealand have had access to a wide range of CHI natural salon products through CHI NZ. CHI was founded in America and their range of professional styling products and natural hair colours are now favoured among salons worldwide.

Stylists can use safer, more natural products that produce amazing results – better for clients and hairdressers alike.
