Yay! It’s Summer!

Summer Hacks For The Best Summer Hair! Ready?

With Memorial Day just past us, the long-awaited days of summer are finally here! Shorts and loose tops or filmy sundresses are the standard ware. So bring on the picnics, barbecues, pool and beach! But before you start soaking up these days, are you equipped to care for your most prized possession – your hair? Here are some summer hacks to protect your hair from the sun’s rays, the humidity and heat, and chlorine and salt water.

First, cover up! Being outdoors in the hot sun can damage your hair. The sun’s heat drains moisture from your hair, leaving it dry, faded, and prone to breakage. Use a scarf or hat to provide extra UV protection, helps your scalp retain moisture and protect color-treated hair.

Top 5 Styling Tips For Summer Hair!
Be careful washing your hair too much. Summer heat and humidity causes excess sweat and greasiness. The temptation is to wash your hair more often. But some shampoos, especially those with sulfates, can have a drying effect, which is made worse by the hot sun. Use a sulfate-free shampoo, like Renew Shampoo, which will clean your hair and scalp without stripping natural oils, leaving you with clean and silky hair. You also can simply rinse your hair after a day at the beach or pool and then use a dry shampoo like The Champ Conditioning Dry Shampoo to get rid of any extra oiliness.

Cool the blow dryers and other heating tools! Blow dry your hair as infrequently as possible. And that goes for your hot iron and curling wand too. During the hot, sunny summer months, air dry your hair whenever possible and go au naturel if you can. Slightly messy hair is actually quite “in” during the summer. Go for effortless, beachy waves by washing or wetting your hair before bed, then piling it up in a bun or braid on top of your head. Finish it off the next morning with a spray like Tousled Texturizing Mist especially designed to give a beachy look.


Use a leave-in conditioner to protect your hair from sun damage. This is especially important for colored or highlighted hair. Find a leave-in conditioner with sunscreen to keep your hair from fading and to lock moisture in, adding volume and texture. Consider Restore Leave-In Conditioner.

Don’t forget to give special care to split ends! No matter how hard you try, you may still be plagued with split ends from a winter full of straightened, slicked back hair. Use a product that specifically cares for split ends, like REJUVABEADS™, which selectively targets and penetrates damaged hair and pulls split ends* together like magnets, mending them completely through a proprietary technology. Continued use leads to stronger, healthier, more flexible and resilient hair.


Keep your scalp and roots hydrated by drinking lots of water. Water is critical to every single cell, including those that contribute to hair growth and overall quality of hair. Eat healthy, including lots of omega-3 fatty acids, to keep your hair looking shiny and healthy, and drink plenty of fluids to keep your hair beautiful and lustrous.

Now kick back and enjoy yourself those long lazy, hazy days of summer!

*Independent testing has demonstrated that application of the product resulted in a 100% repair of split ends 3mm long and under.

Father’s Day Is Around The Corner

What Role Does Your Father Play In Your Life?

Fathers have a very special place in our hearts. If you’re a female, you might be “Daddy’s little girl” no matter how old you are. If you’re a male, your dad might be your biggest hero. But do we let our fathers know how much we love and treasure them often enough? Maybe you do…or, well, not as much as you’d like to. Well, Father’s Day gives everyone a reason to celebrate the father figure in their life, whether it be a dad, a stepdad, an uncle, a grandfather or even a great-grandfather.


While mothers usually tend to get the starring role in a family, research demonstrates that if a child’s father “is affectionate, supportive and involved, he can contribute greatly to a child’s cognitive, language and social development as well as academic achievement, a strong inner core resource, sense of well-being, good self-esteem and authenticity.”1

For example, girls will seek out in a future partner the attributes that their father held, like being nice, loving and kind. For boys, fathers serve as a role model and boys will look for their father’s approval in everything they do.2

Another point about the importance of good relationships with fathers? Girls tend to do better in math and boys tend to have better grades and perform better on achievement tests!3 Who knew?

But back to Father’s Day, which is around the corner. What are you giving your father? There are so many ideas. Depending on your dad, you may give a gift like a sports accessory, an electronic gadget, outdoor cooking supplies, tools or even a new fishing pole. Today, economists estimate that Americans spend more than $1 billion each year on Father’s Day gifts!4


But don’t forget men, like women, always like to look their best. You could treat him to a spa package of haircare and shaving products, which would be quite unusual. Try the MONAT BLACK System which includes BLACK Cream Shave, BLACK Aftershave and Moisturizer, BLACK Shampoo + Conditioner and BLACK Groom Styling Clay. Your dad will definitely thank you!

Springtime Equals Happy – But Dirty – Kids!

We’re all happy it’s springtime. We feel the new energy and want to get into the outdoor spirit. Well, kids do too. The snow has melted and kids are chafing to get outside and back at it.

Here are a few really simple playthings to do that will fascinate children of different ages.

  • Look for interesting bugs.
  • Draw pictures with chalk on your sidewalk.
  • Take a magnifier and investigate tree bark, bushes or grass.
  • Paint some flower pots and then plant buds or herbs in them.
  • Hold a miniature toy car wash for the neighborhood kids.
  • Hide trinkets from around your house in a sandpile and have a treasure dig.
  • Blow, chase and pop bubbles.
  • Go to a local zoo or outdoor jungle gym.

REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive

[wc_spacing size=”30px”]

The science behind the proprietary formula

[wc_spacing size=”10px”]

REJUVENIQE™ Oil Intensive’s exclusive ingredient is Abyssinian Oil. Abyssinian oil comes from the crambe abyssinica plant native to the Mediterranean and East Africa, and currently the oil is produced on Prince Edward Island in Canada.

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

[wc_row][wc_column size=”two-third” position=”first”]

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

Abyssinian oil is a 100% natural, non-gmo product.
This eco-friendly oil is fully biodegradable and free of any harmful additives.
Abyssinian Oil has a unique molecular structure that is not found in any other naturally occurring oil.

It has been shown to significantly improve the skin’s complexion and the hair’s luster through unique Omega 9 fatty acids composed of Erucic Acid, Oleic Acid, Linoleic Acid, Palmitic Acid and Stearic Acid.

[/wc_column][wc_column size=”one-third” position=”last”]



In our search for a unique product unlike any other on the market, we began to meticulously engineer what has now become our signature blend. When it came down to buttoning up the formula for REJUVENIQE Oil Intensive, we chose Abyssinian Oil not only for it¹s remarkable rejuvenating properties, but also because of the way it is grown and processed. We are committed to ensuring our Abyssinian growers are using sustainable farming practices in their daily operations.

Where we source it from

We are committed to ensuring our Abyssinian growers are using sustainable farming practices in their daily operations. Farming these days is not a simple task, and many factors must be considered. All of our crops are grown on land with known, suitable cropping history and sustainable rotations with other crops. Abyssinian fields are identified and logged to provide a permanent record of previously grown and nurtured crops.

[wc_divider style=”dashed” line=”single” margin_top=”” margin_bottom=””]

[wc_row][wc_column size=”two-third” position=”first”]

[wc_spacing size=”20px”]

The production of healthy, viable Abyssinian relies on the planting of unmodified, high quality seeds. Through rigorous testing and evaluation, we select only the best hybrids available.

Oftentimes this method of producing multiple lots of seed allows us to personally choose the best seed available for producing the purest oil. We maintain and monitor all Abyssinian crops to ensure that there is no contamination with genetically modified organisms from other crops grown nearby.

How we’re giving back

Our production team is dedicated to moderating consumption of all natural resources through recycling, process improvements and innovations that minimize consumption while improving efficiency. We also give back a percentage of our profits to the farmers who grow and maintain our crops in the spirit of gratitude for our planet.
