Product Of The Week: CND RescueRXx Daily Keratin Oil Treatment

Happy Friday!

This week, the spotlight is on CND's RescueRXx Daily Keratin Oil Treatment. Rescue is right! This treatment is effective at repairing nails like you wouldn't believe!

This little oil packs a life changing punch. With clinically-proven results (and tested by some Pure Spa Direct staff!), clients who follow the protocol from CND, see results with white spots, peeling and splitting. Have clients who have suffered from a DIY home manicure gone wrong, they will thank you for this. Clients who have brittle nails for other reasons, will be singing your praises.

Test it out on yourself or a client who is concerned with their nails being brittle. For an investment under $10 to test, it could be your go to retail item!

Here's to a happy and healthy weekend!

AHHHH-MAZING Argan Oil Shampoo and Conditioner - Must Have Retail Items for 2012!

Recently, my 4 year old daughter developed a sensitivity to sulfates found in many shampoos, conditioners, and body washes. I have switched her to using only Castile Soap derived from coconut oil. Since she is unable to use these harsh detergents, I thought it might be a good idea to eliminate them for myself as well. I have tried a few sulfate-free shampoos in the past, but was unhappy with the results. They either did not leave my hair feeling clean or soft, or led to itchy, greasy roots within hours.

Then, a few weeks ago, I blogged about the incredible liquid gold oil, Argan Oil. In my research for that blog, I discovered the One 'n Only Argan Moisture Repair Shampoo and Conditioner and decided to give it a try. I did not have very high expectations, based on my previous experience with sulfate-free shampoos, but boy, did this shampoo surprise me!

Since it is sulfate-free, there is very little lather. While there is not much to back this up, we usually equate big, bubbly lather with shiny, squeaky clean! The lack of lather left me feeling a little....empty during my shower, but I figured I would roll with it. The shampoo is a pearly white and feels about the same consistency as most shampoos I have used previously. Nothing special there. The conditioner also felt like most other conditioners I have used. The one noteworthy feature of this duo is the scent - HEAVENLY! The warm, almost nutty aroma stays with you long after you have rinsed.

When I got out of the shower, my hair felt about the same as usual, heavy-wet, yet soft. I decided to allow it to air dry to see if the shampoo and conditioner had any noticeable effect on my thick, semi-wavy hair without any input from styling tools. When my hair was more than half dry, I ran my fingers through it to feel the progress it was making, and my heart nearly stopped. My hair felt dry, crackly, and sticky. OH NO - what happened? I figured I would allow it to finish drying before I made my final assessment.

Once my hair was completely dry, it looked smooth and shiny,
and felt nicely moisturized. Not sure why it feels so yucky while it is drying, but the final outcome is lovely. My hair feels strong, yet silky smooth, without feeling greasy - even after 2 days! I normally have to wash my hair daily or risk looking like I am wearing a grease helmet, but with this shampoo, I can go 2 days without a problem! I have received so many compliments on my hair since I started using this Argan Oil shampoo...perfect for the holiday season, when I want to look my best!

I definitely recommend checking this shampoo and conditioner out, for yourself, your salon, AND to retail to your clients!

What is your favorite shampoo?

Infused Brushes for Retail - Keratin Bristles Pull Through Knots with No Frizz


As much as I love my gentle-bristled hair brushes, there are times when I want some strong, hard bristles to pull out the knots and give my scalp a strong massage. With combination wavy-curly hair, however, using such a type of brush would turn my shoulder length hair into a 'fro. Not so stylish...

Enter the Keratin Protein Brush & Comb Set by Scalpmaster. The brush in this set is made with firm and strong bristles that massage and stimulate the scalp while gently pulling through knots and tangles. An added bonus is the addition of Keratin protein, which has been infused into the bristle of the comb and brush. Our hair and nails are comprised of Keratin, so by having it in the brush, the Keratin acts as a defrizzing agent, making hair smoother, shinier and more easily styled. For the first time in my life, I have been able to pull a comb through my hair, sans styling products, and walk out the door with sleek waves rather than knotty curls. The comb also works great in the shower to brush conditioner through your hair!

Whether your clients have curly or straight hair, you can use this set for salon services, PLUS offer it as a retail afterwards. Add the Keratin Protein Brush & Comb Set to your styling stations and POP Display today!

Krazy for Keratin!

Brazilian Straightening and Keratin treatments are all the craze in the Hair Salon world these days! Many clients desire the service, but are skeptical over the high cost of the salon treatment. For those clients that are looking for more affordable alternatives, Pure Spa Direct carries products that you can retail to your clients for use at home.

I recently tried the One 'n Only - Brazilian Tech Keratin product line and instantly fell in love. I've been using the three products for a while now, and even my colorist commented on the softness of my hair.

What is it?
This professional hair care line was developed containing keratin that helps protect hair against structural damage; strengthens and repairs; enhances shine, smoothness and moisture; and improves texture and condition. This prescriptive hair care line is designed for various hair types, textures and conditions.

How does it work?
Natural keratin bonds to the hair’s surface penetrating the cuticle into the cortex. The One 'n Only - Brazilian Tech Keratin system helps replenish the hair’s natural keratin, which may be lost or damaged during the chemical/color process. Recommended for use after any chemical service, or for those who are exposed to the daily damage of heat-styling appliances, to keep hair smooth, shiny and nourished.

Why I recommend it?
Gives an idea of what the results would be like to use a Keratin treatment. This treatment also has wheat proteins for added strength and moisturizing oils like jojoba, grape and macadamia, plus shea butter and honey for soft, supple, shiny hair. Clients will be hooked on what Keratin can do for their hair and, hey, they may even come back for the professional treatment.
