Probiotics - Not Just for your Stomach!

I must admit, I'm definitely intrigued by the latest new health trends that pop up every once in a while, whether it be just a fad or something that truly works. With a rise in fitness and healthy being the new black, it's really no surprise! Probiotics have always been a popular health commodity specifically known for maintaining the good bacteria in your stomach. 

What exactly is a probiotic? It's actually a microorganism that literally means "for life" that contains the good bacteria which helps to maintain stasis within the body. Generally speaking, when consumed, they offer a plethora of health benefits. Aside from balancing out the bad bacteria, they can help boost digestion and improve the immune system. 

Did you know they're not only good for your stomach, but for healthy hair as well? They can actually help your hair grow longer and shinier, and even reduce the appearance of hair loss which can contribute to a healthier appearance. We have a great product that caters to the probiotic trend. 

We just got in the Onesta Probiotic Protein Treatment here at Pure Spa Direct! It's a leave-in strengthening spray that brings probiotics to hair care, helping defend hair against damage from chemical treatments, environmental stresses, and styling practices. The cute spray bottles this treatment comes in are also great for retailing at your salon, and your health conscious clients will absolutely love them! Why not consider adding a probiotic hair treatment to your menu?.. give your salon an edge!

Dry, Overworked Hair? Hair Massage To The Hydrating Rescue!

Looking for a new treatment to add to your service menu?

As you know, the elements take their toll on the skin and hair. Client's who have dry, overworked or brittle hair need a treatment that is super hydrating and luxurious. Something that will leave their hair shiny and more hydrated.

Try this very simple yet effective hair treatment:

Lemon Butter Hair Love (I'm sure you're more creative than I am at coming up with a name for this!)

It's best to have this prepared shortly before the service.

In a mixing bowl, mix 2 tablespoon of whipped shea butter, 1/2 teaspoon of borage oil and 3 drops of lemongrass essential oil. Place the bowl in a mud warmer for best results.

After you've shampooed and rinsed the hair, lightly towel dry. Apply the shea butter mixture starting with the ends and working your way to the scalp. Once the hair is fully covered, apply a shower cap and leave the mixture on for 10-15 minutes. Shampoo, rinse and style as normal!

Hydrate Your Hair!

Keeping with the theme of summer winding down, and the sun, sand and surf taking a toll on the body. Here is a great recipe to add to your end of summer services! It's a hydrating hair treatment chock full of products to hydrate and alleviate dry itchy scalp symptoms.

Hydrating Hair Saver
In a mixing bowl, combine 2T of Moor Mud, 2 drops Cinnamon Leaf Pure Essential Oil, 2 drops Peppermint Pure Essential Oil  and .5ML of Vitamin E Skin Oil. Mix until all the ingredients are incorporated. Place the bowl into another bowl of warm water, or a mud warmer.

Shampoo and towel dry the client's hair (you want the hair to be damp) as you normally would. Apply the moor mud mixture to each section of the hair making sure to massage the scalp. Once the entire head has been coated and massaged, wrap in a DRY warm towel (black is always a good choice when working with moor mud!) or you can cover them with a shower cap and heat cap and have them sit under the dryer. Leave the client wrapped for 10-15 minutes before shampooing. Rinse and condition as you normally would.

Very simple add on to your regular services!

Give Your Clients a "Pick Me Up" With Rosemary Essential Oil

Invigorating, Refreshing, and Stimulating are the first three words that come to mind when thinking of Rosemary Essential Oil. Rosemary has a stimulating effect on the central nervous system and is often used as a a key ingredient in the “Wake Up” or “Pick Me Up” blends of aromatherapy products. With summer slowly approaching  your clients are going to start looking for exactly that - A "Pick Me Up" for their lazy summer days! You can easily incorporate Rosemary Essential Oil into your massage services to help ease muscle tension, or maybe in a scalp massage to awaken the senses and stimulate hair growth.

Rosemary essential oil is wonderful for your skin, it helps tone and removes dryness and is an excellent treatment for oily skin, acne, hair, or for promoting hair growth.

Incorporate Rosemary Essential Oil into these services:

Rosemary Essential Oil is also great to include in Hand Made Soaps and diffused within your treatment rooms.

Rice For Hair And Skin Beauty!

Rice Bran Oil is becoming more and more popular in the skin and hair care industry.  Use of Rice Bran Oil originated in Japan and today the highest compliment a Japanese woman can receive is "nika bijin" which means "a rice bran beauty".  Japanese woman have used it for centuries to help smooth out wrinkles as well as provide a slight amount of sunscreen protection.  So why not start taking some of their secrets and use it on your clients?

Oil extracted from the germ and inner husk of rice, Rice Bran Oil is considered to be hypoallergenic.  It protects collagen and elastin which plays a large part in maintaining the suppleness of your skin.  Just like our skin, our hair can be damaged by ultraviolet rays.  The sun's rays can oxidize hair and cause dryness and color damage. The oryzanol in rice bran oil blocks ultraviolet rays and protects it from free radicals.  Another major part of rice bran oil is the high amount of Vitamen E.   It can help seal dry ends and prevent hair loss from breakage.

This oil is perfect for any service you offer at your spa or salon.  It is a great oil to use for massages, post facials or hair treatments.  Because of its small molecule structure it is faster and easier penetration without the oil being greasy.  Here at Pure Spa Direct we have both Rice Bran Oil and Rice Bran Powder for you to use as a massage lotion, direct facial or hair treatments or to include in your own homemade creams, lotions or other beauty concoctions.  The cosmetic companies are starting to include this oil in their products, so why not include it in your services?
