Do you feel like me that September has snuck up on us?! I feel like it was just grad season and everyone was anticipating summer! And here we are in fall!
If you are anything like me, you have been looking forward to the routine that fall brings, not to mention the coziness of wearing sweaters or sitting around a fall bonfire wrapped in a blanket while your nose breathes in the cool, fresh air. Ahhhh, can you tell fall is my favourite time of year?
August, like July, had some of us taking some time for holidays. I started my holidays by attending my nephews wedding in Saskatchewan. What a fun time I had with my family! Followed by a week camping at St. Malo park with two of my very good friends and their husbands. It was a time of relaxing, chatting and some of my 'soul sisters', having morning coffee that went till 3pm, and refreshing myself. I suggest that you too, take time to refresh yourself.
You know the saying, 'All work and no play...'
And now, time to get back to work!
Our SURFACE LITRE SALE WAS A BIG HIT ONCE AGAIN!!
Thank you to all of you who believe in our Surface product line, just like we do!
And if you missed it this year, we will be back again next year in August! We welcome feedback and testimonials as to why you love Surface and what it has done for you. We would love to feature YOU in one of our upcoming newsletters or facebook or instagram posts!
This summer, I did a bit of research as to why it is important to maintain healthy hair. It’s not only that beautiful and shiny hair leave a good impression, but good hair care also helps to avoid extensive damage which can lead to hair loss. Something we definitely do not want!
Did you know that healthy hair starts at the scalp?
Keeping the scalp clean & healthy is a foundational part in achieving normal healthy hair growth.
If the scalp is not cared for properly, then build up of sweat, dirt, and excess oils can block the follicles, resulting in many different issues ranging from inflammation to severe itching and dandruff. This is one of the many reasons why us Classis girls strongly believe in our Surface shampoos & conditioners! First, we LOVE the fact that they are vegan, gluten free, sulfate free, and paraben free! And since studies have shown that parabens could be linked to cancer, we highly endorse our Surface shampoo & conditioners! Our Surface products are made up of plant, flower, nut extracts and many natural sugars. No petroleum or plastics. And so, with these ingredients, we can be assured that our scalp receives the optimal environment for hair health and growth.
Come on in & chat with us if you have any questions regarding which
shampoo/conditioner duo would be best for you!
We would love to help you start on a hair health program if you are not already on one!
This month's product pick & tip come to you from our receptionist, Sandra.
SANDRA'S PRODUCT PICK:
AWAKEN! Awaken all the way!
Some years back, I had surgery ~ post surgery I was losing incredible amounts of hair, like handfuls! I started using the Awaken shampoo & conditioner and within months I could see a definite change. It made my hair thicker, and feel fuller, it came through so shiny and felt super healthy.
I would recommend this product to anyone suffering from thinning hair, hair loss, itchy scalp and psoriasis.
Hands down, MY FAVOURITE PRODUCT!
SANDRA'S HAIR TIP:
The best hair tip I could give you would be to use Professional Salon products only!
DRUGSTORE VS. SALON PRODUCTS
DRUGSTORE: The shampoos and conditioners we find at the drugstore are appealing for obvious reasons. They're affordable and convienient. But what makes them so affordable may be the cause for concern. Although drugstore shampoos do contain high-grade ingredients found in salon products, they only contain small amounts of them. They typically contain chemical, which can strip your hair of its natural oils, essentially drying it out! They're also known for diluting their products with fillers. These tend to make your hair feel super soft, but can also leave behind a waxy build-up.
SALON: The reason salon shampoos tend to be on the pricier side is because they are highly concentrated with high-grade ingredients. They often consist of vitamins, oils and minerals that are truly nourishing. These shampoos also include less fillers than their drugstore counterpart, preventing the waxy build-up and instead, hydrating from within. Because these premium shampoos are more concentrated, you don't need to use as much to see the results.
And so, go encourage someone's day!
Give a smile to a stranger as you pass them on the sidewalk!
Hold the door open for someone!
BE THE CHANGE!
Lots of Love,
Connie for Classic Impressions Salon
