Going to the hair salon or barber shop is a ritual as old as time itself.But what happens to all that hair after it’s been swept off the floor?

Or the metal foil hairstylists use to give you that ombré hair or balayage? And what about all that extra hair product that’s left sitting in the mixing bowl?

For the most part, it goes down the drain and into the water system, or in the trash and then in a landfill.
