Spring Break was Great! My Hair... Not so Much

The trip to Florida was much needed, spending your days swimming and soaking up the sun- but now, you’re back in Grand Rapids and noticing your hair is totally out of whack! What’s going on? Let our hair doctors diagnose your condition and get you back on track. 

Is your hair…

Dry? Brittle? A struggle to brush? 
It sounds like your hair had too much sea salt exposure. Salt is good in small amounts so long as your hair is still being moisturized. Too much salt removes moisture from the hair and leaves it unmanageable. 

At-Home Treatment: R+Co Palm Springs Pre-Shampoo Treatment Mask. This weekly at home treatment is full of oils and butters to deep condition your locks and leave them softer and shinier than before your vacation. 

In-Salon Treatment: We also offer the Palm Springs Pre-Shampoo Treatment Mask as an add-on to your cut or color. Moroccanoil also has three different conditioning treatments that can pin-point issues that you're dealing with in your hair.

Brassy? Dry? 
Too much sun exposure can cause your hair to lose it’s ashy hue, essentially sun bleaching it. This over exposure can also cause hair to become dry and weak without the proper UV protection. 

At-Home Treatment: R+Co Sunset Blvd Blonde Shampoo and Conditioner. This daily purple shampoo maintains neutral/ashy blondes without causing them to look too violet. This amazing shampoo/conditioner combo is formulated with ingredients that provide UV protection and aloe leaf extract to seal in moisture and smooth out any brittleness. 

In-Salon Treatment: Glaze and a trim. The glaze will fill in your hair's "potholes", add shine and moisture, and get the tone back to normal, while the trim will help to stop your ends from splitting.

Experiencing Breakage? Green Hue? 
Swimming in pools without proper protection allows chlorine and hard minerals to penetrate the hair cuticle, causing the hair to appear green as well as causing dryness and breakage. 

At-Home Treatment: R+Co Acid Wash Apple Cider Vinegar Cleansing Rinse. This rinse treatment gently removes buildup without stripping your hair of the natural oils it needs. As a shampoo alternative, it can be used as often as needed to remove GR hard water buildup as well, always leaving your hair soft and shiny.

In-Salon Treatment: A Malibu treatment will completely remove build-up from the hair, but also leave it feeling soft and supple.

All About R+Co

We took the time to search far + wide for the perfect professional product line to bring in to Echo that would best support your hair's needs, our stylists' thirst for education, and our mission. We finally found the perfect blend of all of those things in R+Co (short for Rogue and Company- how cool is that!)

This amazing professional hair care line was developed by three hair stylists with a mission to provide the very best for our stylists and guests in quality, ingredients, and price (yes, a professional brand that actually cares about cost!). The three founders all specialize in different avenues of the hair industry- one as a salon owner and men's grooming specialist, one as a fashion/runway stylist, and one an editorial stylist (for magazines, ads, etc.)

Here's a few cool things that we especially love about R+Co:

Packaging- To lower costs and look amazing, the pictures on the packaging are taken by the people who work for R+Co corporate, and even though it looks amazing, the packaging itself is very basic to keep costs low. Almost every bottle is recyclable. Each product is designed to  invoke a feeling, place, style or attitude.

Unisex- All products are made for men or women. The scents are not feminine or masculine, they're just good.

Cost- Almost every product is under $30. 

Travel Friendly- Many of our products come in travel size, and if it doesn't, we will help you find one that will work just as well!

Ingredient Conscious- They take out all the junk and leave us with the good stuff! No parabens, sulfates, mineral oil or petrolatum. They're also all vegetarian, cruelty-free, gluten-free, and color/ chemical safe. 

Scent- All of the products have a common citrus base, so they can be mixed and layered and will never conflict with one another.

Ease of Use- The products were designed without "rules". Many of them can be used on wet or dry hair for different things. They can be layered for stronger staying power. They're basically fool-proof! 

Education and Support- R+Co supports the stylists in their salons with great education and product specialists who are able to answer any questions we have. 

Salon Exclusivity- R+Co is against diversion (selling the product from anyone but salons and their direct website). Because of this, they can put more into the salons they work with and the products they develop.

SO MANY THINGS! I could go on and on, but the best thing to do is see for yourself. Come pick up some new R+Co products today and refresh your hair and your style.

Salon Grade Shampoo and Conditioner: Is it Worth it?

For many, buying shampoo is just another item on the grocery list- something you don’t give a second thought about. However, as more of us continue to educate ourselves with the goal of taking better care of our bodies, we are realizing that this also applies to hair care.
