So this just happened: Quiet Calm Curl Control was just named in the January issue of Oprah Magazine as a go-to cream for naturally curly B and C waves! We talked to The Curl Doctor, Shai Amiel himself, on his favorite way to use our shea butter enriched cream on his curly hair and textured hair clients.
In Northern California, “Indian Summer” is here. It’s hot, hot hot, one day and humid, foggy and cold the next. If you’re struggling with keeping your hair sanity while Mother Nature makes up her mind, here’s 10 summer hair strategies for the curly (and even the not-so-much) from our friend Beverly Turner of Hello Curls in Sacramento. Any tips of your own to share? Leave a reply at the end!
Melissa Marusteri and Chelsea Daniels of The Green Spot in Phoenix are “eco chic” brought to life. Partners in the health-minded salon, the pair’s healthy hair-meets-self-care salon thrives in the flowering green beauty niche in the Sonoran Desert, home of beautiful sunsets and succulents. The following is our chat with the Green Spot Girls!
What happens when you combine your love of holistic hair with your love of art? You get Abloom Salon + Gallery in Phoenix, Arizona. A holistic place of beauty where art happens: On the walls, and in the hair. We spoke to Alejandra Martinez, owner of the stylistic space about her go-tos, being a Clean Air salon, and hydration tips for those scorching Arizona summers.
According to television commercials, this is how you wash your hair: Plop a half dollar sized amount shampoo on top of your head. Scoop up your remaining hair and mash it all into a foamy cap. And scrub. That’s not shampooing with intention and that’s not how we do it around here! Think of Innersense Organic Beauty hairbaths more like a facial cleanser: Our products are packed with high vibrational plant ingredients that nourish and cleanse the hair and scalp. Our products are meant to be used with love and intention. Here’s how to get the most out of our new Hydrating Cream Hairbath and not be a shampoo commercial!
All curls are not created equal. All curly hair is not all curly. And each curl has a mind of its own. A curl specialist knows this. Many of us with coils and ringlets do not. Luckily there are stylists like Dianne Nola to translate our tendrils into a language we understand.
“An experienced stylist is like a psychic and hair doctor in one. They ‘get you’ before you even sit in the chair,” she says. “Breathe. Go to someone very experienced. They already know a lot about your hair. The missing piece is your lifestyle and expectations.”
The Best of San Francisco just named Dianne the top Curly Hair Stylist in the Bay Area, a tremendous title to hold in a city of salons. So we had to know more about this “hair doctor”… here’s our conversation!
It’s a common question I hear: “What products should I use to protect my hair?”
This very question comes from my Beauty Guests who regularly use heat styling tools, including curling and flat irons, and the hair dryer. Hair trends come and go, but heat styling remains a key to achieving the latest in-style look.
It’s been a long-standing marketing technique for companies to come out with heat protectant products. These conventional products are loaded with silicones and plastics, which are meant to cosmetically add shine to hair, yet consumers don’t realize the true effect these ingredients have on hair.
Last summer we shared our very first 14-Day Hair Detox Challenge on our blog! Many new green beauty seekers took us up on our challenge and made the switch to our pure, organic and toxin-free products, and discovered healthy, shiny hair.
Because the New Year marks a perfect time to make commitments for healthier choices, we’re excited to offer this challenge to those who are now ready to choose cleaner-than-clean hair!
Here’s our enticing New Year’s 14-Day Hair Detox Challenge offer especially for new green beauty seekers:
When Elizabeth came to our office for a business meeting, it was exciting to share our company, products and philosophy with her. As a beauty industry professional, it was a delight to learn she loves all kinds of beauty products, too. After discovering this, I couldn’t help but offer her a hair care detox challenge. I asked her to try our Innersense Organic Beauty products for 14 days and report her findings.
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? But, not in this case. Perhaps it’s unexpected to discover a full-service, high-end salon, offering toxin-free alternatives to the conventional salon experience right in Las Vegas. Detox Salon is Las Vegas’ first clean-air salon using all natural products on their guests. Owner Stacey Kaptain doesn’t allow such toxins to be present in their facility.
After being diagnosed with two autoimmune diseases, Stacey started to connect the dots toward exposure of toxins while working in beauty salons during her teen years. Learn more about Stacey, how she made a conscious decision to start healing herself, and discover more about her inspiration for creating Detox Salon. Thank you, Stacey, for choosing Innersense Organic Beauty products for your salon!
Many people we meet are asking this very question. What’s in shampoo, and why? Consumers are looking deeper into the effects personal care products have on our body in the short and long term, plus the compounded impact such use has on our environment, too. With just a few changes in everyday habits, product usage can make a huge difference on health and the planet. Thankfully, cleaner choices are easier than ever to find but the answers are in the fine details. The front of the bottle or packaging is often designed with enticing claims to grab consumers’ attention.
