Now Carrying Russell Organic's Argan and Camellia Oils

Fresh Salon is now the proud distributer of Russell Organic's Argan and Camellia Oils! Over the past week, these amazing oils have proven themselves an extreme asset to the salon and a wonderful addition to the many other excellent product lines we carry.

Here's a bit more information about both Argan and Camellia Oil and why they may be beneficial for your hair...

Argan Oil

Argan Oil has proved to be a wonder tonic for dry, brittle and frizzy hair. It is surprisingly a kind of non-oily non-greasy oil. It is also found that it locks in moisture and improves luster and shine. Argan Oil has an inbuilt tendency to penetrate the hair shaft and the results are almost immediately seen. It boots nourishment and increases the elasticity of the follicle. This, along with its other primary ability to hydrate the hair and arrest frizz, is what makes Argan oil very good for the overall health of the hair.

Argan Oil is known to help repair cellular damage and improve the strength of the hair. It is rich in natural antioxidants, which are very effective against free radical fighters. Vitamin E is what helps renew and revive hair that has been exposed to heat, dust, wind, and artificial processes such as coloring, styling, perming and rough handling. For colored hair, the essential fatty acids found in Argan oil smoothen the follicle and shaft, which gives the colored hair extended life.

Argan Oil has proved useful in so many way to improve the overall health of hair that is fast gaining popularity as the miracle hair health restorer.

Argan Oil contributes to hair health in the following ways:
- It softens thick and and unmanageable hair
- It lends a healthy shine to dull, lifeless hair
- It encourages healing and provides nourishment to hair that is damaged by color and/or styling
- It maintains the pH balance of your scalp and hair
- It quells itching and dryness of the scalp
- It protects your hair from UV damage
- It conditions your hair naturally

Camellia Oil

Camellia oil has been used for centuries for hair and skin care. For hair and skin are, the oil penetrates quickly without leaving an oily residue. The sweet-scented oil also works well for moisturizing hair and making it more manageable.

Uses of Camellia Oil for Hair Care
People have used camellia oil for hair care for centuries for conditioning and styling hair. The oil is a popular choice for hair care because of the following benefits:
- Moisturizing and effectively seals in moisture
- Penetrates hair quickly without leaving a greasy residue
- Light herbal scent that does not linger
- Hypoallergenic
- Soothes dry scalp
- Works well as a carrier oil with essential oils
- Improves hair elasticity
- Works well for people who find other natural oils too heavy for their hair

To find out how Argan and Camellia oils can benefit your hair, be sure to ask your stylist for more information at your next visit.

Matter Of Trust

Fresh Salon is proud to announce that we are currently contributing to Matter Of Trust. Matter of Trust is an ecological charity operating the Hair Mat and Oil Spill program. Salon owners from around the United States, Canada and beyond also contribute by sending their hair clippings in recycled shampoo boxes lined with large plastic garbage bags. The swept up hair is shipped to specific US manufactures who weave them into mats that can soak up oil and clean our beaches and harbors.

Recycled hair clippings are also made into hair "booms" which are sausage shaped. Hair is stuffed into recycled nylons (with mesh to provide an strong exterior). These booms are then tied together and are then used to encircle and contain oil spills to keep oil from spreading. They protect fragile coves and habitats.

Each of you will be excited to know that you yourself have made a contribution without even being aware. Over the past several months while visiting the salon for your regularly scheduled appointments, your hair clippings have been gathered and sent to assist in purifying the gulf and saving wildlife.

We'll miss you Helen!

We are very sad to announce the departure of a longtime friend and amazing stylist, Helen Hotchkiss. Helen was an extremely important part of the Fresh family and an invaluable asset to the Fresh team. We would like to wish Helen and her family the best of luck as they move forward in their new life together. Helen will indeed be dearly missed, by both her Fresh family and clientele.

Fresh is aware that it may be hard to adjust from a stylist with whom you are compatible and feel completely comfortable with and we are absolutely prepared to help each and everyone of you transition in the smoothest way possible. In order to provide you with the same FRESH results, Helen has left behind several recommendations which we will be happy to pass along in the thoughts of offering the same great service that she continued to provide you over the years.

Helen was saddened by being unable to say goodbye to each and every one of you. Each of you have shown her loyalty and gratitude beyond expectation and that's all a stylist can ask for; Thank you! We appreciate all of you and hope that you continue this journey with us as part of our Fresh family!
