Healthy Hair The Natual Way!

The natural movement in skin care is no secret these days. I speak with clients all over the world who tell me how concerned their clients are with ingredients and environmentally friendly treatments.

While many are focused on skin care/body treatments, there are also options for hair care! From creating your own oils for scalp massage to actual hair treatments, there are many natural options to excite your clients!

Here are some ingredient ideas to get you started:

Calendula flowers are awesome as a scalp treatment! Calendula helps calm irritated and/or sensitive scalps! Infuse a carrier oil with the flowers for a great scalp massage!

Dandelion Leaves work well for relief from dandruff and dry hair.

Ginger is excellent in a hair mask and/or scalp massage as it helps to stimulate hair growth. It also adds a little pep to the treatment!

Lemon Balm is great for clients with oily hair. It has mild astringent properties that help balance oil production.

Nettle is an all purpose hair herb - it helps with preventing hair loss, stimulates the scalp, helps with dandruff, split ends and helps with shine!

Rose Hips are chock full of vitamin c making them an excellent choice for strengthening hair

If you'd rather not make your own, take a look at the hair oil line from Organic Fiji!

Foot Soak: Mix a drop of cinnamon oil in a bucket of warm water that your clients can soak their feet in during pedicure services! This will also feel super refreshing.

Aromatherapy: During your massage or facial services, simply drop cinnamon oil into any of our diffusers to make the room smell amazing. The scent will most certainly keep your clients relaxed during their treatment.

Happy Fall!

Nature's Botox: Emu Oil

Although not entirely mainstream just yet, did you know that emu oil has a plethora of health and beautifying benefits ? Sounds obscure, I know, but I was inspired to write about the lovely benefits of this miracle oil after seeing a sign on a health food store in my city that deemed 'Emu Oil is Nature's Botox.' I did research, read some articles, and came to the conclusion that this could be next in line to coconut oil which is currently my favorite beautifying oil. Sounds promising if you ask me! What (or who?!) is an emu, you ask? If you didn't know, an emu is actually a bird that can grow up to six feet tall and is native to the land down under of Australia. For quite an odd looking bird, (picture a goofy looking gigantic ostrich!), the oil they produce is magical to say the least! You can definitely add a unique skin care service to your spa for your clients who are looking to rejuvenate their skin. Check out some of emu oil's health benefits below!




  • Filled with Vitamin A and Omega 3, 6 and 9 fatty acids, emu oil can help to repair skin damage through antioxidant properties.
  • Why is it called nature's botox? High in oleic acid, this can help to regenerate skin cells and prevent wrinkles.
  • Leave your client's skin feeling super soft with emu oil, as it contains sapogens which are natural skin softeners.
  • Some evidence based clinical trials have even confirmed that emu oil acts as an anti-inflammatory which can be effective for irritated skin.
  • It can also be effective as a moisturizer when applied topically. 

We carry pure emu oil at Pure Spa Direct which you can incorporate into your spa's services! Use it during facial treatments, or even use our Organic Emu Massage Lotion during massage services as well. Change up your menu and get your client's hooked on this beautifying oil!

Yummy Skincare! The Beautifying Benefits of Cocoa Butter

Looking for a skincare product that's so delicious you kind of just want to eat it? I'm sure your clients are too, and while I definitely do not recommend eating our cocoa butter products right out of the jar (please don't), I have a great list of its beautifying benefits that will make your clients keep coming back for seconds (to put on their skin, of course).

Cocoa butter is made from whole cocoa beans that are fermented, roasted, and then separated from their hulls. The remaining residue is.. voila.. cocoa butter! Check out some of the beautifying benefits of cocoa butter below as well as products we have for your spa that your clients will love!

Hydrating


Due to its fatty acid and nutrient content, cocoa butter is great for moisturizing dry skin and keeping it that way. Are you in need of a new retail product you can suggest to your clients? You should try out our Queen Helene Cocoa Face and Body Butter Cream! Aside form the attractive packaging, your clients will fall in love with the way it smells and makes their skin feel!





Soothing


Cocoa butter is known for its healing properties because it's so rich in nutrients. It can be helpful for your clients with irritated skin or even eczema. Try adding some cocoa butter into your next facial! Our Cocoa Butter Facial Scrub by Queen Helene is a great exfoliate to incorporate into your skin services (I told you their packaging was cute)!





Healing

The healing properties of cocoa butter are amazing! Due to its high antioxidant content, cocoa butter has the ability to greatly reduce the appearance of scars, minor scratches, and even stretch marks. 

Healthy Hair



It's not just for your skin, either! Cocoa butter is hydrating for dry and damaged hair, and it's also great for strengthening it. Incorporate a Cocoa Butter Deep Conditioning Treatment into your salon services using our Organic Pure Cocoa Butter. Your clients will appreciate the scent, as well as their new, healthy hair.

Offer Your Clients a Sugar High - Naturally!

Sugar can be seen as both a blessing and a curse. It's a personal vice of mine, and I'm sure for many of your clients as well! Lately it's been getting a bad rap, and even seen as poisonous and toxic. While it may have a bad reputation in sweets, it most certainly makes up for it in regards to skincare.

According to an article I read, sugar is actually a natural source of glycolic acid which is perfect for exfoliating dead skin cells. This in turn can smooth and even out the skin, making it a perfect regimen to add to your client's skincare.

Are you in need of a new retail product to sell to your clients? How about a new sugar scrub spa treatment? We have a variety of sugar scrubs from MeBath that are perfect for retailing to your clients! With scents like Madagascar Vanilla & Lavender With White Truffle (yum!), and Toasted Coconut & Lime With Sandalwood, on top of the attractive packaging, your clients can't help but be addicted! This tri-functional exfoliating sugar scrub is a revolutionary 3-in-1 formula that exfoliates, cleanses & moisturizes. Gentle enough to be used daily, this sugar-based scrub is infused with the finest organic jojoba oil, known for its remarkable ability to stimulate the production of your body’s own natural emollients.




Click here to see all of our products by MeBath, including all of their sugar scrubs. You'll most certainly be addicted :)

An Avocado A Day

Aside from being one of the most delicious, satisfying fruits (that's right.. they are a fruit!), as well as a decadent Mexican dip (I could live off guacamole), avocados are also packed with a slew of beautifying properties! Native to Mexico and Central America, avocados are technically a large berry packed with fatty acids, antioxidants, and an abundance of nutrients that are beautifying. See below for some of the beauty benefits they offer, as well as avocado products we have here at Pure Spa Direct for your spa!

Healthy Hair
Avocados help to revitalize hair to make it shiny and healthy looking. They are also perfect for treating a dry and itchy scalp.




Rub some of our Pure Avocado Oil onto your client's scalps to keep their hair healthy, smooth, and moisturized!







Glowing Skin
Avocados are highly nutritious and filled with vitamins and minerals to get that healthy glow for your clients' skin. They are also filled with fatty acids which are great for moisturizing and maintaining skin elasticity.



Incorporate our Olive and Avocado Therapeutic Hydrating Massage Cream by Amber Products into your next massage treatment! It's perfect for your clients with extra dry skin,






Anti-aging
Filled with anti-oxidants to prevent free radicals which causes aging, avocados are great for reducing wrinkles and maintaining a youthful appearance! You might want to consider using avocado facials as an anti-aging treatment at your spa.


Our Avocado and Grapefruit Facial Mask by Queen Helene is made with a unique gel-clay formula to lift away your client's skin impurities and give them a healthy, youthful glow.








DIY Avocado Face Mask
To get the utmost out of the benefits of an avocado, why not create your own Avocado Mask with these Customized Treatment Facial Masks?

Sleeping Beauty

It's no secret that the best and most natural way to enhance your beauty happens at night: beauty sleep!

There's good reason as to why's it's called beauty sleep. While you're at rest, your body is working hard to repair and restore your body. How does this benefit your beauty? Your skin cells turnover and heal, resulting in glowing skin and healthier hair. 

Do you offer your clients products for overnight use? Not sure where to begin? There are many ways to enhance your customers' already natural beauty regimen of a good night's rest! See below for the products we recommend here at Pure Spa Direct:



Eyes

Our eye cream from Oxygen Botanicals is perfect for your clients to use at night. Its key ingredients include Japanese Green Tea Extract, Chamomile Extract, Sweet Almond Oil, and Vitamin A, which are perfect for maintaining skin elasticity around the delicate areas of the eyes. With brighter, moisturized skin around the eyes, your clients will look more awake and beautiful! This cream can also minimize fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness and dark circles. Perfect for AM use as well!





Body

Hands and feet are often neglected in an overnight routine, considering they are a couple our most used body parts! It is essential to keep them moisturized for beautifying and anti-aging purposes. Our Intensive Age Defying Hydrating Hand and Foot Cream by June Jacobs Spa Collection is a great cream for your customers to add to their nightly moisturizing routine. They are perfect for retailing (bonus points for being paraban free)!






Hair

An easy way to keep your customers' hair moisturized and soft is to use a leave in conditioner at night. Our Onesta Quench Leave-In Conditioner is made with all natural ingredients and certified organic extracts of linden, goldenseal, and orchid. Have them apply this to dry hair at night, and throw over a hair cap for a simple and easy overnight conditioning treatment!
