The molecule, the smallest particle with all the physical and chemical properties of a substance, was the inspiration of Cris Dios Organics, who continues in constant evolution, maintaining its essence.
Ten years ago, Cris Dios Organics already believed that beauty, well-being and the environment were linked in a connection that respects the harmony of nature. Therefore, its organic ingredients are meticulously selected for their reparative and nutritive capacity, and for their environmental impact, resulting in formulations that balance high performance and respect for the planet.
Among the hair re-education habits we practice at Laces is the Healthy Wash. This technique relies on the dilution of the shampoo (1 coin of R$ 1.00 at the bottom of the pot for two fingers of water) and the conditioner (1 measure of conditioner for 1 finger of water) in a pot, which does not allow residues to accumulate in the threads, besides using less water to wash the threads. Finally, rinse with filtered water, or mineral water, to eliminate all residues from the hair.
One of the most traditional procedures of Laces is the Full Moon Spell. The treatment, which includes 3 procedures in a single day: Hair Dusting, a cut that eliminates the double, dry and porous ends without moving the length or volume of the hairs, with Multivitamins, a deep cleansing of the scalp based on astringent herbal lotion and nutrition of ends and length of hairs, associated with the Hair Laser, which stimulates cell activity, accelerates the growth, thickening and strengthening of existing hairs, when performed in the first days of the Full Moon, allows the hair to grow 80% more than normal.
Velaterapia is a technique that combines three Laces treatments that solve the weakening and porosity of the threads. From the flame of a cosmetic candle (composed of lavender essential oil and organic and vegetable butters), the professional performs the technique of cauterization of the strands, eliminating only the areas that need the treatment, without altering the volume, cut or length of the locks. After this process, dry and split ends are eliminated with Hair Dusting ® and Multivitamin Treatment ®, nourishing the locks and detoxifying the scalp.
This is the name of the concept of Villa Lobos store, where businesswoman and cosmetologist Cris Dios joined a special team of creators to present the idea of “visual biome” of the store, which brings the canopies of the Villa Lobos Park into Laces’ habitat, incorporating well-being, warm, and life to the space through connection with nature and promotes Laces experience of hair care and natural treatments combined with the care of body, mind, and soul.
This concept became a reality thanks to a talented team of many project participants, including Nadezhda Mendes da Rocha, Brazilian architect and furniture designers, who developed a lavatory that goes far beyond its traditional function. Caroline Elkis, architect and landscaper, faced the challenge of representing and bringing the tree canopies from the backyard of Parque Villa Lobos Shopping Mall into the new unit; and Engineer Carlos Raiza took the task of making natural light viable in the unit as a mall store, vital for Laces’ trade dress and very rare in shopping malls.
Adriana Bianchi, art expert and heir of IADE, was the curator of the Brazilian furniture inside the space, where we can see items by Sérgio Rodrigues, Jorge Zalszupin, Michel Arnoult, Jean Gillo, Florence Knoll, and Nadezhda Mendes da Rocha. Visual artist Armarinhos Teixeira, who has already exhibited works in other Laces units, is also part of this team with new works exhibited. All this integrated with the work by architect Marcelo Bicudo and a modern VM design by Juliemy Machado.

Laces and Hair Manifesto on Women: Stereotypes, Demands, Guilts, and Fears.
Laces proposes a reflection on the need to daily observe the feminine universe, where there are a number of demands for them to be super women: good successful professionals, faithful friends, good mothers, thin, beautiful, healthy, good wives, good daughters, which ends up in frustration as they cannot perfectly perform all these roles.
The purpose of the video is to reflect and discuss on daily judgments and suggest more acceptance of one’s essence, nature, and respect the way each one has chosen to take.
Meeting and debate among women.

Vogue and Laces and Hair came together at Laces Amauri for an event full of art, beauty, personality, and style.
Seven women were invited to exhibit works from their personal collections by renowned artists that reflect their choices, style, beauty, and personality.
“In the quest for sensations that inspire, foster, and reflect part of their personalities, women come together to exhibit works from their personal collections. Choosing an artwork is choosing a provocation, an emotion, an experience. The personal taste and history of each of those women intersects with the presence of art.
Since 2014, Laces has opened a space for arts as a refuge from the big city chaos. Now, it hosts its first meeting of art, personality, history, and identity, where women present part of their personal collections.”
Preparation and Production of the ‘Women and their Collections’ event. 7 women, 7 styles, 7 different tastes, 7 arts exhibited. Before and after the event.
